What can happen if I don’t get my boiler inspected?

  • Build up of combustion deposits in the main heat exchanger creating less efficient combustion and therefore less heat being transferred to the water.
  • The condense trap can block up if not cleaned annually resulting in a flame failure lockout.
  • The expansion vessel can lose it’s charge resulting in the central heating pressure rising when the heating is on, then dropping to fault when off.
  • Minor issues like a small leak inside the boiler can rust through the case, resulting in almost all cases a new boiler being required.
  • Several manufacturers have released safety updates for parts that, if the original ones are left for several years can become dangerous and a fire hazard. These boiler manufacturers include Worcester, Baxi, Ideal and Vaillant.
  • A condense trap can dry out, resulting in fumes entering the property.
  • On older boilers the thermocouple condition can be assessed during a boiler service and replaced if necessary, if left too long a thermocouple will cause the pilot light to repeatedly go out.
