A Boiler service is something that many homeowners do not give enough consideration until it is too late. The first thing you should do on receiving your boiler is to check for any cracks or leaks and then to go over the operating manuals that come with it to make sure that you are operating it safely and in the way that it was meant to be. If you find that you have a problem with your boiler, you should contact the manufacturer as soon as possible and get your boiler serviced as soon as you can. Regular yearly boiler service should begin with an inspection by a Boiler Service Bristol company to make sure that your boiler and other related pipework are placed and installed properly.
Your Bristol Boiler Service engineer will check that your boiler has been working correctly and then identify any potential safety devices that could have been affected if not working properly. For example, you may have noticed that one of the safety devices has been incorrectly fitted. It is recommended that this is done immediately because if not, this could lead to an accident where someone is seriously hurt. Boiler servicing usually includes a visual check of the heating system, the flue and the burners. The visual check will include the level of the heating and flue gas as well as any visual indications that there are any signs of problems with the flue or the heating system itself.
The engineer will also conduct a visual inspection of the interior of the flue. This is important because it will identify cracks, holes, or other defects that can allow heat to escape and may cause the burner to stop if left unnoticed for long enough. These visual inspections are often conducted while the unit is at room temperature. Once completed, your engineer will sign the inspection report and then instruct you on the proper way to service your boiler. This will normally include removing the burner cover and putting it in a safe location where it can be safely accessed by you.
