Oil, Natural Gas & LPG Boilers
A V Brown and Sons Ltd are committed to the servicing and maintenance of your gas appliance. We recommend servicing your boiler annually so that it is at its best performance. Your boiler will have a warranty and it should be serviced every 12 months, otherwise warranties will be invalid. Boilers are one of the most frequently used items of a house hold and one of the most frequently over looked. Every boiler will have a gas pressure check to ensure the boiler is operating at the correct gas pressure, flue test to ensure there are no un safe emissions from your boiler and inspect the boiler for corrosion and leaks, check burner pressure/gas rate against manufacturers guidelines. Check ventilation, check operation of all the flame failure devices and investigate any evidence on unsafe operation and report to the owner/landlord. In 1996 the Government passed a law that requires all landlords, who rent properties to have all households gas safety checked every 12 months.
Three handy tips for a healthy boiler:
- Most boilers have a warranty – this should be serviced each year otherwise the warranty will be invalid.
- Boilers will generally have a lifespan of between 12 and 15 years if maintained. Left to run without servicing they may need replacing within seven to eight years.
- During cold weather, it is false economy to run your boiler in short bursts. It is far better to leave it on round the clock, allowing the thermostat to regulate your heating temperature needs.
