How Often Should I Service My Boiler?

Boiler Installation Milton Keynes

Your boiler is one of the most important amenities in your house. It keeps your house warm as well as heats your water. It would be a great inconvenience if it stops working or causes a safety problem for you, your family or home. Therefore, regular boiler servicing is recommended annually to maintain it in proper condition at all times.

Gas engineers & manufacturers recommend that you service your boiler once a year. This will guarantee that it is safe to use and avoid future breakdowns. For your Worcester boiler servicing, you should use a certified gas engineer to ensure that it is serviced correctly. Grand Union uses registered gas engineers to serve the residents of Milton Keynes and its surroundings.

Why you should do a boiler check annually

There are many advantages to annual boiler servicing. While many of them ensure safety for your family and home, there are also financial benefits. Some of these include:

Keep your warranty valid

Your boiler manufacturer requires that you service your boiler once a year. If your boiler happens to breakdown, the manufacturer will confirm when the last boiler check was done. If you missed your annual Worcester boiler servicing, your warranty will be invalidated.

Home insurance requirement

To warrant boiler safety, your home insurance policy may require yearly boiler servicing. Failing to honour this requirement can invalidate your home insurance.

To lower your energy bills

An Inefficient boiler uses a lot of energy to operate which increases your gas bills. When servicing your boiler, the gas engineer will make sure that the boiler is working efficiently to save you a fortune in energy bills.

Avoid unexpected breakdowns

You need your boiler to work when you need it, especially during the cold seasons. An annual boiler servicing routine will reduce the risk of your boiler breaking down unexpectedly.

Prolonging your boiler’s life expectancy

Wear and tear is inevitable. A gas engineer will identify the worn-out parts of your boiler that need to be replaced and make recommendations to increase its life span.

Keeping your home safe

A faulty boiler can pose great risks to your household. Carbon monoxide is an invisible, deadly gas that is emitted from gas boilers. A qualified gas engineer will check for gas leaks and faults in your boiler and correct them. This will certify boiler safety. Moreover, you can have peace of mind knowing that your boiler is not leaking dangerous gases in your home.

I had a new bathroom fitted by Mitch. He was absolutely excellent. He was polite, tidy and did an exceptional job. Reasonably priced too. 100% recommend.


Excellent service. I contacted them for a boiler repair. They responded within hours with prices. Once they confirmed part availability, they fitted within days.  Very efficient, great service and I liked their clear pricing.

Definitely recommend & I will be booking my annual service with them in future.

Well done!

Sheena Mac

Grand Union replaced our central heating system and in doing so we requested that it be relocated from the airing cupboard into the Garage.  The work was completed professionally & on time with the relocated pipework like a work of art, very neat and orderly.  I would have no issue with recommending Grand Union, and will certainly be using them for all our gas & plumbing needs.


I have called Mitch out twice since moving into our new house a month ago. Both times he has managed to fit in an appointment fairly quickly to resolve our issues. He has been professional and friendly, offering advice on other issues that I have seen. I would definitely recommend his services.

Definitely recommend these guys. Had a job done by them and they wasted no time to get it done and made sure I was completely happy before any payments. Nowadays companies just want to rush and take your money. Big thumps up

A great company to do business with… I used them recently for an emergency with a domestic heating system which was rectified very efficiently.
