Our Bath boiler services take around 30 to 45 minutes, and we are happy to provide a written report at the end of the boiler service if you require it.
Our boiler services in Bath are extremely thorough. We make a visual check of the components, controls and exterior casing, and conduct a battery of tests that aim to ensure y our boiler is functioning effectively, safely and efficiently.
We check the flue is free of obstructions and properly fitted, and clean and inspect all the main components of the boiler.

Here are some things you can do to help maintain your boiler in Bath:
- Check the pressure, which should be between 1 and 2 bars. If it’s too low or too high give us a call.
- If your radiators have cold spots use a radiator key to bleed them to release trapped air. If this doesn’t work call us to investigate.
- Install a carbon monoxide alarm to alert you to any toxic gas leaks.
- Make sure your boiler is installed in a well-ventilated position.
- If you notice water dripping from the external outlet pipe there could be a problem with the boiler’s valves or seals, so you need to call a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
