Here at RAF GAS manufacture will have to be specified for acestimated time but generally A standard boiler service should take anything from 40min to 1 hour depending on the boiler manufacture. Some manufacturers will want a full strip down and clean after so many years of service this many take considerably longer. We also carry out commercial servicing.

This depends on which make of boiler is being serviced. Some manufacturers only want a full strip down and clean every 3-4 years. This then includes new seals and gaskets etc. Some Manufacturers recommend a full strip and clean service every year. Generally a service will be between 1 hour to 1 and a half hours. There are generic tests that need to be carried out during a service, but there are also “Manufacturer Specific” tests which are required to be carried out. At Air Plumbing & Heating Ltd, we feel it is vitally important for our Engineers to attend various Manufacturers Training courses in order to know how each one wishes their boilers to be serviced and maintained. Air Plumbing & Heating Ltd prides itself on carrying out our boiler services to a high standard, following Manufacturers recommendations.

A boiler service should take approximately an hour depending on the boiler model. A service to manufactures instructions is what would be required to keep your boiler warranty void, anything less should be avoided. BoilerOne recommend you instruct a gas safe registered engineer to service your boiler.

On average a room sealed Boiler will take between 40mins to an hour, dependent on manufacturers criteria. With Conventional or Open Flue Boilers this can take an hour plus as there is need for more stringent flue testing and a need to fully strip the appliance for thorough tests. This type is now becoming a rarity, However in My Hometown we have a lot of Warm Air Heating so they keep me busy.

A boiler service will take on average around 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes. During this process the engineer will check various components on the boiler making sure that they are clean and free from defects and more importantly they are safe. One completed the engineer will fire up the boiler check the controls he will also use a gas analyser to check the flue gasses as well as the efficiency of the boiler he will then record or print if the readings for your records.The engineer will also carry out a gas tightness test at the gas meter (normally at the start of a service) making sure that the gas pipework is sound and free from any gas leaks. The engineer will normally fill out a check sheet which he will issue at the end of the service and if required fill out the service record located in the Manufacturers Insruction booklet this will keep any warranty/guarantee in valid. Never be afraid to ask the engineer any questions.

Anything from 30 min to 2hrs depending on the type of boiler and the condition it is in. for example a back boiler with gas fire that not been serviced in yrs and has soot on the burner, heatex and catchment space needing serverly cleaned. compared to one done yearly could be a hours difference in time. new condencing combis only require full strip down in their 2,3rd or 4th year of use as long as reading on measuring instruments like flue gas analyser and monometer are fine and within range. Anything from 30min to 90min

A gas boiler service should take around 45 minutes to 1 hour 30 mins depending on the boiler. Some heat exchangers are easier to gain access to than others and some will require a thorough clean if a service has not been carried out for a while. It’s important to have your boiler serviced regularly to check and maintain that it is running safely and efficiently. Also you could pick up on future problems before a boiler will break down causing much hassle.

A boiler service can take between 30 mins to an hour and a half or longer in some cases if more work is required. A boiler engineer will need to work on your boiler and check your gas meter. You can help your engineer; and speed things up; by clearing the area around the boiler and show them where your boiler controls, isolation switches and thermostats are. Don't be afraid to ask any questions about your boiler or controls so you fully understand what you have. Please advise your engineer if you've noticed any problems but it helps if you tell them in advance as they may need to bring additional parts or tools.
