How Often Should a Commercial Boiler Be Serviced?

How Often Should a Commercial Boiler Be Serviced?

Jump to a section:

As one of Brighton’s oldest central heating installation and repair companies (established in 1971) you could say that we have seen it all, so we completely understand how important it is to have a working boiler system and how important it is to have it working effectively and efficiently. Hot water and heating are essential parts of day-to-day life within businesses and properties.

What Is Commercial Boiler Servicing?

Commercial boiler servicing is an important part of keeping a commercial boiler system running efficiently and safely. Usually, it is via annual servicing and It includes checking the boiler for any signs of wear or damage, making sure that all components are working correctly, and ensuring that the system is operating at optimal efficiency. A gas safe boiler engineer should perform this servicing on a regular basis to ensure that the system is functioning properly and to prevent costly repairs or replacements in the future for a faulty boiler. An efficient boiler should help keep the costs lower for energy bills too.

Are boiler services a legal requirement on commercial properties?

Yes, the servicing of boilers is a legal requirement for all commercial properties in the UK. The law was put in place to ensure that commercial boilers are regularly inspected and maintained by a qualified gas safe engineer, as part of a risk management strategy. This helps to protect both property owners and tenants from any potential risks associated with boiler failure.

How often should you do maintenance on your boiler?

It is recommended that commercial boiler systems be serviced at least once a year, or more frequently if there are any signs of wear or damage. To ensure optimal performance and safety, the servicing should include an inspection by a qualified gas safe engineer to check for any signs of corrosion, signs of leaks, faulty components or incorrect gas pressures. Monthly checks should also be done as well as the annual boiler service to make sure that all parts are operating correctly, depending on the type of boiler and scale of usage. Regular maintenance is key to keeping the boiler system running safely and efficiently.

What is the average life of a commercial boiler?

The average life of a commercial boiler can vary depending on the type and size of the system, as well as its usage. Most boilers have a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years, however this can be extended if regular servicing is done. This includes checking for any signs of wear or damage, making sure all components are working correctly, and keeping an eye on gas pressures. 


Will a boiler service make the boiler more energy efficient?

Absolutely! A boiler service can make your boiler more energy efficient. Regularly servicing your commercial boiler system helps to ensure that all components are working correctly and optimally, which in turn can help reduce energy costs. A qualified engineer will be able to identify any areas of the system that may not be operating as efficiently as they could be, and make the necessary adjustments or replacements to ensure optimum performance. An inefficient boiler can quickly add up in costs on energy bills.

When is the best time of year to do commercial boiler services?

The best time of year to do commercial boiler services is typically in the autumn months. This is because temperatures are cooler and there is generally less stress on the boiler system, which makes it easier for a qualified engineer to access all parts of the system. Autumn also allows enough time for parts to be ordered and installed if necessary before colder winter weather sets in, helping to avoid any potential future issues.

What happens if the boiler breaks down?

If a commercial boiler breaks down, it can result in major disruption for the business or property. Depending on the severity of the issue, it could take days or even weeks before it is possible to repair and restore it back to normal if you are not in contact with a good and reliable boiler repair company. Not only will this lead to interrupted services and lost revenue, but there is also the potential for damage to other property and equipment due to water leaks or gas issues (such as carbon monoxide poisoning). It is therefore important to ensure that regular servicing is done to help prevent any potential problems occurring in the first place.
