Is your boiler making a hissing, whistling or cranking noise? It could be time to get your boiler serviced!

In this article, we provide free advice and tips to make sure you have a fully functioning boiler for hot water or central heating in your home.

Why do you need boiler care?


Boiler care is important to ensure that the boiler is always running smoothly, efficiently and without any problems. There’s nothing worse than a cold home or an icy shower and there’s nothing more comfortable than a cosy warm home!

Here are some tips to consider:

- Have your boiler serviced every year or every six months (depending on the type of boiler you have) with a professional boiler servicing company. This will ensure that there are no problems with the boiler, and it is running as efficiently as possible.

- Check your water pressure valve to make sure it is not leaking. If it is, this could lead to a build-up of limescale which can cause major issues with your system.

- Keep an eye on any leaks around the radiators, pipes or taps in order to fix them before they cause more damage and cost you more money in repairs!

These tips apply to all boiler types, whether you are looking at oil, LPG or gas boiler servicing. At ProHeating, we can help you, including combi boiler servicing as well.

Boiler servicing, and what to consider

If you are experienced in boiler repairs (and a qualified Gas Safe engineer for gas boiler servicing) then you might be able to do your own servicing, but for most people, we recommend contacting a professional who manages boiler repairs and replacements on a daily basis. They will get the job done properly for you!

Servicing a boiler involves checking different elements such as the pressure levels and whether the system is pumping the heat around the property correctly or not.

It also includes a visual inspection for any possible damage that might be obvious on the boiler, piping or any other element of the heating system.

What else should be considered?

If you want to prolong the life of your boiler and keep it running smoothly then there are many other things to consider. Here are just a few of them:

Winter care: During the winter, make sure that pipes and the boiler aren’t subject to any frost damage. The more they are protected from frost, the less likely there is to be any damage caused when the temperature drops to freezing levels.

Reducing wastage: Turning off the heating or hot water when you don’t need it sounds obvious but it’s also easy to forget to do it! Reducing consumption doesn’t just keep costs down, it also helps prolong the life of your boiler as well.

Keep an eye out for cracks and leaks: If you see any cracks or leaks in the heating system then contact ProHeating – The boiler company to have the issue fixed as quickly as possible as you might need boiler repairs or modifications made to existing pipework.
