When should I get my boiler serviced?
You should service your boiler every year. It’s usually best to do this during the summer months when installers aren’t dealing with emergency repairs and heating breakdowns. Only Gas Safe registered installers should carry out this work. Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain on 1 April 2009.

What type of shower can I use with a combination boiler?
Most standard shower fittings will be compatible with a combi boiler. If you have a multijet shower the water demand may exceed that of a combi boiler and you should check the manufacturers installation instructions. If you are unsure, get in touch and we can advise you on the best course of action.

The hot water supply from my combination boiler fluctuates. Is this correct?
Depending on heat output, combination boilers can only supply a limited number of taps simultaneously (sometimes only one at a time). Turning on additional taps will reduce the flow of hot water. If the water is not hot enough you may have to reduce the flow (by turning the tap down) to increase the temperature. This may be necessary especially in winter when the water supply to the boiler is colder.
