Gas Boiler Servicing
Regular boiler servicing is vital to ensure that your boiler is running safely and efficiently. Poorly maintained or faulty boilers present a serious health risk to you and your family as they can cause fatal carbon monoxide poisoning.
When Should I Arrange a Gas Boiler Service?
Most people choose to have their gas boiler serviced in winter as this is when it is used the most. However you may want to take this into account when booking your appointment. It may be worthwhile booking your service in advance of the busy period or in a different season, such as summer. This means you can avoid long waiting times due to busy engineers. Arranging a service for the summer will benefit you as it gives you more time to have any problems resolved before the cold weather sets in.
How often should I arrange a service?
You should arrange to have a Gas boiler service at least once each year. Annual servicing will ensure your boiler is operating properly at all times. This allows expert engineers a chance to identify small and potential problems before they turn into larger issues. In turn this will help avoid the need for emergency breakdown services and ultimately save you money.
Heat ExchangTo maintain your boiler efficiency the heat exchanger must be kept clean. Excessive smoke and partially burnt fuel deposits can cause soot to form within the boiler heat exchanger. This will restrict the amount of heat that can be transferred into the heating system water. Therefore the cleaner the heat exchanger, the more efficient the boiler will be.
The oil nozzles can also contribute to reduced boiler efficiency. Oil nozzles regulate how much oil passes through the burner. The nozzles are consumable items that over time become worn down. This affects combustion and lowers boiler efficiency. If the oil nozzles are not replaced, they could cause “sooting up” of the heat exchanger due to too much fuel passing through the burner.
Photocells are an important safety feature which detect whether the boiler has been lit. Over time photocells can become glazed over with deposits of dirt from the boiler. If a photocell is dirty it may not be able to detect the burner flame correctly and could cause the boiler to shut down randomly. Boilers frequently switching on and off will be less efficient than those running for longer periods.
Electrodes produce the spark to light the fuel, if they are worn or in poor condition the boiler may not light. Electrodes can become worn down over time. They also attract soot and deposits of dirt. If the electrodes do become worn or dirty this will cause inconvenience, inefficiency and increasing fuel cost.
