Why Maintain Your Boiler?
The short answer is peace of mind. C Hanlon domestic boiler servicing and maintenance give you peace of mind meaning that your home will be heated and you will always have hot running water.
We recommend that you arrange to get your boiler serviced annually. It’s always best to have scheduled maintenance for your boiler to maintain correct, safe and efficient operation and of course minimise the risk of a complete boiler failure and the subsequent replacement costs.
Many people feel they can’t resist the temptation to wait until the boiler is on its last legs before replacing it. This can be dangerous and costly. A boiler that is not operating correctly can present a danger to your family and your house including an increased risk risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. A maintained boiler is a safe and efficient boiler.

Gas Safe Qualified Staff
Boiler care and maintenance must be carried our by an approved gas/heating engineer who is accredited to the relevant standard (mainly Gas Safe standards for gas central heating boiler maintenance).
What is a Gas Safety Check?
A gas safety check includes the assessment of the basic safety of any gas appliance but a gas service includes a more detailed check of the gas appliance.
The engineer will assess the physical condition of the appliance, pipework, ventilation and any flues for signs of damage or malfunction. The engineer will carry out performance tests and take any actions necessary.
It is very important that gas appliances are serviced regularly in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Servicing your boiler regularly will make sure it is operating safely and efficiency.
