The service should be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer and involves the necessary checks and tests on a boiler to ensure everything is in working order. This is a great boiler maintenance tip as it can reduce the possibility of expensive repairs etc. 

Bleeding the Radiators

Finally, bleeding the radiators throughout your home could be a good boiler maintenance option for your home. By bleeding the radiators, you can make sure they are working efficiently. If you notice cold spots on your radiators or notice that they are taking longer and longer to heat up your rooms, then it may be that they need bleeding. 

Lagging The Pipes

Finally, lagging the pipes is a great option for keeping on top of the condition of your boiler; especially during the winter and the colder months of the year. This particular maintenance tip is most useful when the temperatures are likely to drop below zero. These kind of temperatures can cause the boiler’s external condensing pipe to freeze over which will cause the boiler to cut out as a safety precaution. However, this is preventable by either lagging the pipes or leaving the heating on low to prevent it.
