In our opinion the best time to get your gas boiler services is in the autumn. Get your boiler checked over to ensure it is safe and working efficiently before winter hits. Servicing can also highlight potential problems that may arise and you can make preventive measures before you are left without heating and hot water.

for me the best time to service a boiler is in the summer. couple of reasons really, summer time the boiler is normally set to summer mode and the diverter valve doesn't get tested because of no heating demand. also there the engineers are busy with breakdowns in the winter lol.

The best time to service your boiler is every year. Before Winter to make sure your boiler is running to its fullest potential coming into winter. The last thing you want or need is a boiler that's ran through the summer when its least being used, coming into winter and finding you have a underlining issue.

The best time to have your boiler serviced is during the late summer months. This makes sure everything is working and in tip top condition ready for the cold weather. If there’s any issues that need addressing we can take care of any maintenance issues with limited disruption.

The ideal time to service your boiler would be at the end of summer so as to make sure your boiler is ready for the cold snap, however the boiler should be serviced around the annual anniversary of the installation date. This will still highlight any problems that might occur with the boiler and can be rectified before it causes any damage/issues. Remember to get the service manual filled and signed to maintain any warranty still active on the boiler.

The best time to have your boiler serviced is during the summer. Any issues can be picked up and sorted before causing too much disruption. Remembering that a service is proactive maintenance as well as stringent safety checks, the primary objective on any work performed on a gas appliance is to ensure its safety. On the rare occasion when additional work or parts are required, the inconvenience to a customer during the winter period is massively more. Ensure all gas work including servicing is performed by a gas safe registered engineer like DLM Gas.

September is a good time to service your boiler as it can be cleaned and inspected ready for the winter months to come, this means you can have peace of mind that you are unlikely to have a breakdown during the busiest season of a gas engineer. BoilerOne recommend you instruct a gas safe registered engineer to service your boiler.

There is no best time of year to have your boiler serviced. So long as it's within a year of its last one or within a year of installation. Obviously, as summer winds down and winter approaches, getting your boiler checked is a good plan to ensure you are not stuck without a boiler through winter!

We would advise late summer to probably be the best time to service your boiler, just before the heating season and your boiler switches to its highest demand point. servicing will protect your boiler warranty as long as you get the boiler service record filled in or can supply a written confirmation of the boiler service!

Summer is the best time for a boiler service as engineers tend to be less busy and it is easier for customers to get a convenient appointment. Boilers are thoroughly tested as part of a service and occasionally a fault will be uncovered which you may not of been aware of. Any safety defects which require parts could mean the boiler is put out of use for a period of time, obviously Summer would be a better option to Winter when the heating system is relied upon. A summer service will set the boiler up to work efficiently, ready for when you need it the most and your engineer can discuss any upgrades or improvements which will help you get the best from your system.

The best time to have your boiler serviced is within 12 months of installation, and annually from there on. Or if it is an older boiler, or it has not been serviced for a while, I would recommend as soon as possible, but before the cold weather sets in. other than that there is never a best time for a service, as faults/breakdowns can occur at any time.
