Boiler MaintenanceEven if you currently have an A-rated boiler, without regular boiler maintenance from qualified and Gas Safe registered engineers like those from City Technical, it can not only lose its effectiveness, but it could potentially become dangerous. By ensuring that you boiler is regularly serviced, you can make sure that you are receiving the maximum performance from it. Boiler servicing is so important,
as are regular Boiler maintenance checks, which are also important. These checks will ensure the safety of your gas appliances. In the worst cases, faulty and poorly maintained appliances can leak Carbon Monoxide which is extremely harmful and can be fatal. A few regular checks are all it takes for peace of mind for you and your family. City Technical offer Boiler Service and Maintenance, from a one-off boiler service, to a regular maintenance contract, we can provide the cover you need to ensure your boiler is performing at its best and safely.

GAS Safe RegisteredOur Gas Safe registered engineers will carry out a full inspection of your boiler and controls to make sure they are working properly. The gas pressure, flue emissions and internal mechanisms will all be tested to ensure the safety and function of your boiler

The Energy secretary,  Ed Davey is expected to announce this at the Lib Dem conference in Glasgow where he is also expected to be shouting about the progress made towards making it easier for consumers like you and me to switch our energy supplier because by 2020, he wants smaller independent energy suppliers to make up 30% of the Energy market.

Ed Davey went further by stating the Lib Dem plans, as per their pre-manifesto set out last month, to offer households up to £100 per year in a “Council Tax Break” if they make their homes more energy efficient.

With The Warmer Homes Discount and Green Deal Schemes I think this is a turning point where consumers like you will be able to keep some of the pennies in your pocket by improving the thermal flow in your home and in turn reducing the cost to heat your home through things like our Insulation services and energy efficient Green Deal Boilers.
