You really need to be based locally if you want to do South London boiler services efficiently. Most of my work is near where I live: in the triangle formed by Croydon, Bromley and south west London. As a heating engineer, I can of course install a boiler if need be, but I specialise in maintenance and repair. There is a reason for that; apart from cleaning dirt and debris out to make it work more relliably, it is also a great opportunity to spot the beginning of problems, and nip them in the bud. People that do predominantly installs, are bound to be a lot less aware of the weaknesses of specific models and where they are likely to go wrong. As I spend most of my time solving problems, I automatically recognise the warning signs and can often prevent small problems form becoming expensive big ones.

The benefits of boiler servicing

Boiler servicing is important. It is generally advised to have your boiler serviced annually. Very similar to cars, boilers that get neglected are much more likely to fail and fall apart much earlier. In the vast majority of cases a good some proper maintenance and maybe a small upgrade of something will remove the need for an expensive replacment. Many of the old machines were very well built, and have still the potential for years of useful life left.

Read this before calling anyone for a service     Common rip off tactics

Many thousands of people have a contract with the "gasboard" or one of the other big, national companies, and think their boiler gets a service every year. Unfortunately, countless numbers are mistaken or possibly even purposely mislead. What they get every year is not a service, but a safety check. Apparently, it is cheaper for large companies to just let the boiler run until it fails and then patch it up, then to maintain it as should be done. How is this possible? For a number of boilers, there is no legal obligation to strip it and actually really service it, as long as a flue gas sample meets certain criteria. For me, personally, that makes as much sense as not changing the oil in the car until the red light comes on.

South London boiler service as they used to be done

What makes the difference with my boiler services in South London? When I do a maintenance job, I will actually strip the boiler and clean everything inside.
A good heating engineer will also check for any signs of corrosion, and warn you if it is not sure that the system is adequately protected. Rust/corrosion are the number one reason for boiler failure and significant reduction of lifespan. Only recently was I called out to a boiler that had a funny smell, and found it had completely rotted through in several places. Repairing it would have cost more than the boiler itself had cost only seven years ago. This was in South London; my boiler service would have saved a lot of hassle, and well over a thousand pounds.

If your boiler is old, but not worn out, keep it. It makes no difference wheter it is a combi boiler, conventional boiler, condensing boiler or quite old boiler. A bit of tlc can add many years of reliable comfort to most boilers
If something needs replacing, replace it before it fails. If it needs cleaning, clean it before it gets stuck. If you just let it run until it fails, you run the risk of being told: your boiler is beyond economic repair. Many central heating breakdown policies have restrictions, or in other words: small print. Examples are: the company is not obliged to attempt repairs on boilers over 7, 9 or 10 years old. If the cost of the repair exceeds 400, 500 or even 700 pounds, the company can offer for example 200 pounds towards replacing the boiler.

I get new clients on a regular basis that have been told they need a new boiler ( for which the gasboard gave a hefty quote of course ). Most of the time, it is lack of proper servicing, and nothing that a good clean can't solve. Clean the boiler inside, get the debris out of the system, ( see flushing or powerflushing ) and usually, the boiler will last for years.
