So you’ve made the decision to have a boiler service. The aim is to ensure your boiler is running efficiently and make sure there’s nothing that could cause a fault in the near future. But what do you need to do to ensure the boiler service is as smooth as possible.
- The first step, before even letting the boiler engineer into your home, is to check their ID. Check their name badge and make sure they work for the company you’ve hired. Above all, it’s important to ensure they’re Gas Safety registered. There are plenty of cowboy builders ready to do a botched job and put your home at risk
- Before they arrive you should clear the area around both the boiler and the airing cupboard – if necessary. It’s not the best use of an engineer’s time to be moving your furniture before a boiler service, but of course, a reputable company won’t mind helping if you need assistance
- If you have any pets, ensure they’re kept out of the engineer’s way. The boiler engineer may need to leave your property to bring in parts for the boiler service, so dogs and cats should be secured in another room
- To keep in your neighbours best books, let them know what will be happening. If there are parking or noise issues in your local area this is even more important
- If you can, try to locate where the mains water tap is. This will save the engineer hunting around for it during the boiler service
- Once the boiler service has been completed and you’re happy with the outcome, note down the engineer’s name and number so you can recommend them to your friends and family. A reputable company is hard to come by, so you’ll be giving others a helping hand
