Heating engineers are vital for projects such as fixing gas central heating systems and servicing your boiler and must be on the CORGI / Gas Safe register by law.
A boiler service should take a minimum of half an hour to complete and be carried out by a Gas Safe registered plumber or heating engineer. First of all, your heating engineer should do a visual check and make sure the position, type and quality of your boiler is in line with all electrical, gas safety and building regulations. As regulations change, you may have to have your boiler moved or replaced so that it complies with the current UK safety standards.
Then the heating engineer should check the external controls before removing the case and checking all the internal elements of your boiler which include the main burner, heat exchanger, spark centre probe, the seals and the fan. They should also check for signs of overheating, and make sure that the flue terminal is in the correct position. Next, the gas valve should be adjusted to ensure that your boiler is burning efficiently before cleaning out the inside surfaces and a final gas tightness test done to make ensure that there are no leaks.
At the end of the service, you should make sure that you get a test certificate that the heating engineer has filled out and talked through with you before you sign and verify the work that's been carried out.

Almost every modern house has some sort of heating system installed in it. The job of a heating engineer is to install, repair and maintain these as needed. The majority of homes have a central heating system installed, usually powered by an oil or gas boiler. The boiler burns fuel in order to heat up water, which then flows through radiators, and underfloor heating if fitted, in order to heat the home. As well as the central heating, the boiler is also responsible for heating the hot water that comes out of your taps.
If you need central heating repairs or a completely new heating installation, then a heating engineer will be able to take care of it for you. As they are dealing with equipment which may be dangerous if not installed or repaired properly, heating engineers must work to a high standard of safety and be properly certified. This is also why it isn’t advisable to attempt your own repairs - always call in the experts if you need any repairs to your heating system carried out.
Some engineers may specialise in gas boiler repair, while others are experienced in oil heating systems. It is therefore vital to check that the engineer you hire has the necessary skills and credentials to service your particular type of heating.
If your central heating system is malfunctioning, a heating engineer can diagnose the problem and take the necessary steps to fix it.
But it’s not just when things go wrong that you might need to call a heating engineer out. From time to time it’s necessary to have your boiler and central heating system checked and serviced to ensure that they’re working correctly, efficiently and safely. Heating specialists can also be called upon to carry out a new heating installation to replace an old system.
