How do I increase the life of my boiler? 

Invest in a reliable system 

Choose a boiler that has been designed to be dependable and efficient. You don't want a heating system that is constantly breaking down. We install boiler systems from many big manufacturers, such as ATAG. 

Ensure all work is carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer 

Conducting gas work on equipment such as boilers by someone who is not certified and competent is prohibited, not to mention hazardous. By hiring the assistance of a trained expert, you may extend the life of your boiler by avoiding any mistakes that might result in an early replacement.
