Boiler Service Kingston upon Thames Greater London (KT1): If the heat and hot water for your home in Kingston upon Thames is provided by a gas boiler, it is essential that you have a yearly service carried out by an expert. Do not be among the one third of Kingston upon Thames homeowners who fail to follow this recommendation by neglecting this vital annual boiler service. And, do not assume for one second that because you've got an outstanding or extended warranty covering your boiler, you will not need this, since the warranty conditions will require that your service history is up-to-date.
Regardless, you'll want to have your gas boiler serviced regularly to keep it in good working order, and not simply because your are required to do this. A well cared for gas boiler is much less liable to malfunction, and you can expect that when it's serviced frequently, your central heating boiler will function smoothly, safely and efficiently, giving you that further peace of mind.
This responsibility is not only limited to domestic homeowners, because landlords and property managers in Kingston upon Thames also have to get their gas boilers serviced each and every year when they are renting out their properties. And this isn't so much a suggestion, as a legal requirement, in regards to landlords in Kingston upon Thames, who must acquire safety certificates for gas boilers in houses they are renting out. This applies in particular to gas boilers which need annual landlord safety certificates when found in rental residences. Oil boilers aren't covered by the same regulations in that they should be frequently serviced, but have no legal obligation for a safety certificate at present.
With the older style gas boilers (before modern condensing boilers were developed), getting services done every 12 months wasn't quite as crucial or necessary. Those older boilers were much cheaper and less complicated to repair and did not contain so many parts and components. It was of course still prudent to get them serviced regularly but by no means as vital as with the high-tech modern condensing boilers and combi boilers, which are much more efficient, extracting over ninety percent of the energy from the gas they use.
Monthly or yearly boiler maintenance plans, like Homecare with British Gas for example, are bought by lots of residential householders in Kingston upon Thames.

With a minimum cost of approximately £14 monthly (2020), and all-encompassing services coming in at £23.50 per month, these schemes can prove costly. Whilst a regular boiler service in Kingston upon Thames carried out by an experienced heating engineer will cost around £65 to £75.
When it's time to have your central heating boiler serviced you will need to find a certified heating engineer or plumber in Kingston upon Thames to carry out the task.
