How much does a boiler service cost?

Posted on 12/06/2018

A broken boiler is a real pain. A cold house and cold showers might not sound like big issues, but during the freezing winter months they can be come a real problem – especially for older or more vulnerable members of a household.

The best way to ensure that you don’t end up having to deal with one is to get your boiler serviced annually, and the summertime can be one of the most practical times to get this done.

A boiler service is a simple check up from a Gas Safe Engineer, which will make sure your boiler is in good working order and flag any problems with the individual components before they can become broken.

You can pay for a boiler service of these as a one off payment to the engineer, who comes to perform the service, or you can take out a cover policy or insurance for your boiler that includes an annual service as part of the charge.

Local Heroes customers typically paid between £75 and £100 for a boiler service, with a median - most common - price of £85.
