Boiler Service Costs
Boiler Service Costs
A boiler should be serviced annually, every 12 months to ensure that it is in good working order and that it will continue to work properly and efficiently for at least the next 12 months until the next service.
An inefficient boiler can cost you hard-earned money, probably more than the cost of the annual service itself!
Look into a service plan which will cover you for your annual service and also for any problems that could occur and for the expense of any parts which may be needed.
Cost of a boiler service
The average cost of a boiler service in the UK is £100. This takes into consideration that in some areas services cost £80 and in places like London a boiler service will cost around £120.
You can always get a few quotes for boiler service from as many engineers as you want to get the best price. Regardless of how much you pay the Gas Safe heating engineer should carry out the same procedure.
Who to use for your boiler service
A boiler service by any of the ‘big’ companies will generally cost you more as their labour charges are higher.
These companies usually offer service plans which do work out cheaper if anything does need fixing as some service plans include labour charges and parts for any work that is required.

Which boilers need servicing?
All boilers should be serviced every year, especially ones that are under warranty as an annual boiler service is required to keep the warranty valid.
Most manufacturers such as Worcester Bosch, Viessmann, Ideal, Vaillant, Baxi & Alpha all stipulate that you must get a service every year for the duration of the warranty.
