Boiler repairs, servicing and maintenance

Globe Heating provide a full boiler repair and maintenance service to residential customers in and around the Bristol area. Unlike landlords and local authorities providing accommodation, home owners are not legally obliged to have their boilers serviced annually. When it comes to the boiler in your own property it is your responsibility to ensure it is successfully maintained and receives the care it deserves. Many homeowners do not service their boilers annually, however, the benefits of doing so far outweigh the drawbacks.

Take a look below to find out more information on what is involved during an annual service and why it is important to have your boiler serviced.

What is an annual boiler service?

During your annual boiler service an engineer will go through a list of checks to ensure the safety and reliability of your boiler. In a nutshell this will include checking the safety of your boiler, its performance and replacing any worn or broken parts.

Top Reasons for Having an Annual Boiler Service

Keeping your Home Safe – Having your boiler serviced helps to highlight any potential dangers and risks associated to your boiler and flue. When your boiler stops working efficiently, it’s possible for toxic carbon monoxide gases to be released. These gases are extremely dangerous and pose serious risks to anyone exposed to them, yet are ordinarily hard to detect.

Spot Problems Early – During a service, potential problems are spotted early. Being able to spot problems early can help to minimise further damage to the boiler and save money on costly future repairs.

Reduce your Fuel Bills – During an annual boiler service, your boiler parts are cleaned and the boiler efficiency is checked. By ensuring your boiler is running at its optimum efficiency, you can save a considerable amount on your monthly heating bills.

Keeping your Warranty Valid – Many boiler warranties are valid subject to having an annual service carried out. For many boiler manufacturers, failing to service your boiler with a Gas Safe registered heating engineer can invalidate your warranty altogether, meaning you’re liable to foot costly repair bills completely on your own.

Cheaper than Replacing a Boiler – If your boiler is left faulty for long periods of time, much larger and more complicated issues can arise, perhaps even resulting in your boiler needing replacing. Recognising any problems early on can reduce the amount of permanent damage caused to your boiler and keep it running for longer.

Advice for Landlords – To ensure the safety of tenants, landlords are legally obliged to carry out an annual boiler service and produce a Gas Safety certificate for their tenants/letting agency. The Gas Safety certificate provides a log of checks conducted and any corrective measures undertaken. An annual boiler service ensures the health and wellbeing of your tenants can be maintained in relation to any gas appliances installed in the home.

Chris and Shane replaced an old gravity fed, heater only heating system in our first home with a brand new combi boiler. They removed all of the old equipment and placed the new combi boiler in the loft where we wanted it. All works were completed a day early and on budget. Chris and Shane left our home in spotless condition at the end of each day (2 days in total). Their communication before, during and after the works was top notch. They consulted us on several occasions to ensure we were happy with their intentions. I'd recommend them to anyone wanting heating or boiler work done.
Superb job

We needed an ancient heat-only boiler replaced, plus a tank removed and some other work. They gave the most competitive quote and they installed what I think is possibly the best boiler on the market, all things considered - a British-made Baxi. They were a pleasure to have in the house, and everything worked without a hitch. The radiators are now boiling hot and our fifty or sixty year old pipe and radiator system just needs to be gradually updated when time allows. They even put in a couple of connections for me to install a new radiator.

Despite difficult road conditions (snow and ice) Chris & Shane arrived on time. New boiler and water cylinder installed, some replacement pipework. Minimum disruption (my wife is wheelchair-bound), carpets that were taken up all re-laid expertly, rubbish cleared, system working by 6pm same evening. Good workers, professionally installed system, good communication plus there were some "extra" issues relating to my wife's condition that could have been limiting factors. These were sorted by Chris & Shane. I would have no problem in recommending Globe, good workmanship and very caring, professional people.

Very prompt visit by Chris on the day of my enquiry and a clear explanation of the work required, followed by a quote the following morning. I received messages by text and email to confirm details and timings- really helpful.A new hot water tank was installed only a few days later (great to have such a quick service at this time of year). Chris and Shane were professional, efficient and tidy workers. They were polite and friendly, and provided an excellent and reliable service. Highly recommended.
These Guys Are Amazing

I bought a new room thermostat and rang Chris and Shane from Globe Heating to come out and offer me a price to change it over. The Guys came over the same evening to quote me, when I mentioned I never had much money so I would appreciate a cheap quote they said it wasn’t a big job and done it for free. To say I am overwhelmed by their kindness is a understatement I didn’t realise people like this were still around. Very very kind genuine people.

Combi boiler installation. Old floor mounted boiler removal. Contacted Globe Heating and dealt with Chris. Great customer service, came and worked out the job at a time that suited me, explained our options really clearly to us. Got quote to us the same evening which was amazing! Great communication, workmanship and aftercare. Neat and tidy, quick turn around, even did extra job he discovered as part of original quote. Can't recommend highly enough.
