Regular gas boiler maintenance is essential to keep your system running effectively and efficiently. Neglecting your boiler’s maintenance can lead to higher energy bills, reduced heating performance, and even safety hazards. Here are some gas boiler maintenance tips to help keep your system running smoothly.

1.  Schedule Annual Servicing

It’s recommended to have your gas boiler serviced by a qualified technician annually. This will ensure that your boiler is running safely and efficiently. During the service, the technician will clean and check all components, replace worn parts, and adjust settings if necessary.

2.          Check the Pressure

It’s important to check your boiler’s pressure gauge regularly. The pressure should be between 1 and 1.5 bar. If it’s too low or too high, adjust it accordingly.

3.          Bleed the Radiators

If you notice that some of your radiators are not heating up as well as others, it may be due to air trapped in the system. Bleeding the radiators will release any trapped air and improve the heating performance. However, if you do not know how to bleed a radiator, it would be best to let a professional from L&P Heating Services Ltd do this for you as they will know how to treat your radiators and boilers in top shape.

4.          Keep the Area Around the Boiler Clear

Ensure that the area around your boiler is clear of clutter and debris. This will allow for proper airflow and reduce the risk of fire hazards.

5.          Check the Carbon Monoxide Detector

Install a carbon monoxide detector near your gas boiler and ensure it works correctly. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that faulty boilers can produce, and a sensor can provide an early warning of any potential hazards.
