At Seaburn Gas we recommend getting your gas boilers serviced annually.
Regularly servicing your gas boiler ensures that they continue to work safely and efficiently.
What is a service?
Our gas engineers will carry out a full inspection of the gas boiler and will:
- Visually inspect the appliance, air vents and flues for any deterioration and leaks
- Clean any dust/debris from parts and inside of the combustion cover (this does not include removing sludge from boiler/system)
- Carry out a performance test to ensure that it is operating efficiently and safely
- Inspect the appliance and the controls to ensure that they are operating safely
- Use a flue analyser to check the performance and emissions
- Carry out a gas pressure check to ensure that the appliance is operating at the correct gas pressure
- Advise on necessary remedial action if any faults are identified
Why should I service my gas boiler every year?
- Safety – reduces the risk of the gas appliance developing deadly leaks of gas and carbon monoxide
- Avoid costly breakdowns – minor faults which are left untreated may turn into more expensive repairs
- Maintain warranty
- Maintain optimum efficiency

- Your gas boiler is not working properly
- Your boiler is burning with a lazy yellow flame instead of a crisp blue flame
- You can see black marks or stains on or around your gas boiler
- The pilot light keeps going out
- There is increased condensation in the room
