In an annual gas safety inspection, your Gas Safe qualified engineer will test your boiler pressure; check for unsafe emissions at the flue outside; check out all the controls to ensure they work; visually inspect the condition of the boiler and either issue you with a CP12 inspection certificate or warn you if s/he has any concerns.

Should your boiler not have been used for a while it could break as soon as it is called into action in the winter. A lot of the problems that could cause a Christmas boiler breakdown can actually be identified at the time of the service. So, a Christmas boiler service will make your boiler run more efficiently and could even save money on your Christmas gas bill.

Common Christmas boiler service problems

  • Automatic air vents are prone to breakdown. If this happens you’ll see dripping water or a limescale build up on the outside wall.
  • If limescale has built up in the pipework this can cause fluctuations in hot water temperature from the taps.
  • A blockage in the pressure relief valve might cause water to drip out of the pipe outside.
  • Pump failures are often caused by a gradual build-up of sludge. They will stop the entire heating system from working.
  • If the diverter valve has failed, your boiler may get stuck on either hot water or central heating. Turning on you hot taps may make the radiators heat up, and the tap water will be lukewarm.
  • If your radiators feel hot at the top but cold at the bottom, your system might need a Christmas Central Heating Power Flush to remove sludge.
