What Do Plumbers Do?

 

Our versatile plumbers work closely with a team of designers, builders, kitchen fitters, bathroom fitters, electricians and engineers to deliver state-of-the-art turnkey installations in Headington and the surrounding areas, as well as call-outs for boiler repairs and central heating servicing.

Boiler Repairs and Central Heating Servicing

 

To prevent your boiler breaking down or from suffering long-term, irrevocable damage, we advise that Headington homeowners should arrange their central heating servicing to be carried out at least once every 12 months. This is also recommended by major-brand manufacturers, including Worcester Bosch. Annual central heating servicing will reduce the likelihood of requiring costly boiler repairs or replacements if left unchecked.

 

For brand-new heating systems, we will recommend energy-saving boilers, including Worcester Bosch’s reliable range of Greenstar boilers or Greenskies solar panels, which can be installed by our plumbers, kitchen fitters and bathroom fitters at your Headington home. These will improve your energy consumption and condition on your boiler, which requires less upkeep for boiler repairs and central heating servicing.

 

Plumbers and engineers will inspect boilers and heating systems as soon as installations by bathroom fitters and kitchen fitters are completed. Depending on the model of your boiler, Headington clients can trust us to undertake boiler repairs and central heating servicing, covered by our own 5 to 8-year guarantee.

 

If there is a problem with your boiler, we strongly advise that only Gas Safe registered plumbers or engineers carry out boiler repairs or central heating servicing, which include the following:

 

  • Testing appliance controls and inspecting the gas pressure
  • Carrying out a flue combustion test to detect any carbon monoxide emissions
  • Check boilers for broken or worn components, leaks and corrosion, in addition to checking the condition of the ventilation and appliance connections
  • Clean the boiler, including the burner, heat exchanger and flue, with flush cleaning techniques

 

Once inspections and boiler repairs have been made, our plumbers and engineers issue a Gas Safety Report, outlining the checks that have been done and the work that has been carried out. Anything needing to be actioned, such as installing a carbon monoxide detector if one isn’t present, will be followed up during the next central heating servicing date.
