As with most things that need to be maintained regularly, it’s to make sure that it is working effectively, safely and economically. Especially with gas boilers this is why you should service your gas boiler in Liverpool every year and use a certified and knowledgeable engineer.

What should I expect when a gas Engineer arrives?

Firstly ensure that the Engineer is registered with Gas Safe. When a service is performed by a qualified ‘Gas Safe’ registered engineer, the service should last about an hour and  include gaining access to the boilers combustion chamber, gas burner, exhaust fan etc during cleaning and testing of the gas boiler to ensure that it is installed correctly,safe to use and working correctly and efficiently. this is achieved as the Engineer will carry out a number of assessments on the boiler during a service.

Why you should Service your gas Boiler in Liverpool every year.

Frequent annual servicing and safety checks to your boiler is essential as it ensures that the boiler is working to the requirements designed by the boiler manufacturer. This will help extend the life of the boiler as well as prevent mistakes and expensive maintenance in the future.

The efficiency of central heating boilers declines with use. There are several reasons for this, the key ones being:

Soot/carbon deposits from combustion process building up within the boiler.
The crucial air-to-gas ratio changes due to constant element wear effecting combustion and efficiency.

A Boiler services will remove any sooting, dust and debris and, by testing and adjustment, will re-establish the the best possible operating settings. But while optimising working efficiency is vital in these days of increasing energy expenses, there are other essential benefits in having your boiler serviced:

By verifying the safety checks and faults can be found and can be recognized and fixed early enough.
A variety of functional systems and elements will be examined including:
– Gas and water leaks
– Boiler combustion performance (using flue gas analyser)
– Sounds that indicate incorrect operation.
– Incorrect heat-up/ circulation

Just like vehicles, central heating boilers can function for many decades with servicing but generally have reduced efficiency as they age and become to look inefficient against modern technology.

Carbon monoxide, The silent killer

Carbon Monoxide (also known as CO) is a colourless, odourless toxic gas and is a typical yet avoidable cause of loss of life.

When we burn gas and air correctly we get Carbondioxie and water vapour. When it burns incorrectly we get carbon monoxide and carbon. The carbon is the black deposits people mistake as soot and the carbon monoxide is the poisonous, odourless gas.

When CO is absorbed into the body it prevents the blood from taking in fresh air. If a person is found to have CO over a period, it can cause sickness and even loss of life. As well as Monoxide has no fragrance, flavor or color. This is why it is sometimes called the “Silent Killer”.

Carbon monoxide alarms are invaluable in warning people of a build up of this poisonous gas but these are no substitute for professional servicing and upkeep of , boiler, equipment, ventilation and flues.

Is there really a benefit to servicing my boiler?

How much more efficient a boiler will be after servicing will depend on the boiler, when the last time it was serviced and the system it is connected to.

If the Boiler has not been serviced for several year you may get 5% or more efficiency increase.

If the boiler Is a condensing boiler efficiency could be improved up to 91%.

Where the system that the boiler is connected to is inefficient and poorly set up then this can greatly effect the boiler performance. Where the return water from the system is above 54c a condensing boiler can’t run efficiently. Where the return water from the heating system is below 54c this aids the condensation of combustion gasses and extracts upto 10% more energy from the combustion process.

So cleaning the boiler and checking the flow temperatures to and from the heating system and adjusting the flow rate and return temperature can save £££’s.

How often should I service my boiler?

Most Boiler producers suggest an yearly support, mainly on the reasons of safety and reliability. On efficiency reasons it is well worth servicing gas  boilers yearly because of the intake of dust and debris and flying insects from outside and the build-up of deposits from the combustion process.

What is Gas Safe? Answered by a Liverpool boiler specialist.

I have been working as a Liverpool boiler specialist and gas Engineer since 1988. At that time the governing body was CORGI. The Council of Registered Gas Installers.

CORGI was replaced with the Gas Safe Register as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010.

So now the Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body appointed by the relevant Health and Safety Authority for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey. It is the law all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register.

What does Gas Safe Register do?

The main focus of the Register is on improving and maintaining gas safety to the highest standards. They make sure all 125,000+ gas engineers on the Register are qualified to work with gas.

As a  Liverpool boiler specialist I am registered with GAS SAFE and fully insured.

They work to protect the public from unsafe gas work through;

  • a dedicated national investigations team tracking down individuals working illegally
  • regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
  • educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
  • investigating reports of unsafe gas work


Who runs Gas Safe Register?

Gas Safe Register is run by Capita Gas Registration and Ancillary Services Limited, a division of Capita Plc.

So if you want to ensure that a company or engineer is registered with GAS SAFE and deemed competent to work on your gas system and appliances please visit the GAS SAFE website to check this out.
