Boiler Service and Repair
Why should you service your boiler and how often?
Servicing your boiler on a regular basis is essential for both safety and efficiency. This should be done annually.
Faulty boilers are extremely dangerous. A boiler leaking carbon monoxide (CO) into your home can make you very ill, and at worst can be fatal. Unlike gas, it is completely odourless and has no smell and can do a lot of harm before you're aware.
Government statistics state that around 4,000 people per year go to A&E due to this, with around 200 hospitalised, and around 50 of these cases are fatal. Getting your boiler serviced properly ensures there are no leaks or weak points, and that you are completely safe.
Servicing your boiler will also maintain it, prolonging it's life, and reducing the chance of future repair bills, therefore saving you money. Any minor repairs can be done before they get worse and become bigger issues and repairs. We will make sure it's working as efficiently as possible to keep your utility bills down, and cut your carbon footprint all year round.
Most home insurance policies will state that a boiler must be regularly serviced, we can provide any specific paperwork for this. We are fully insured ourselves for any work and certificates we provide.
System Power Flushing
If some or all of the following problems are experienced your central heating system may need a power flush:
Radiators that leak discoloured water when you bleed them.
Radiators that still have cold spots after you bleed them.
Radiators that are slow to heat up, or don’t reach a high temperature.
Hot water cylinders that don’t heat up when they should.
Noisy boilers or central heating pumps.
We offer a full central heating power flush service using state of the art chemicals which break up the sludge and scale, a modern power flusher unit and a Magnacleanse unit that catches the sludge so you can see for yourself how dirty the heating system is.
We cover all sizes of heating systems from small domestic properties to light commercial units.
Gas Fire Installation
Gas fires create a great focal point for any room, while providing heat.
We provide a complete gas fire installation service, working with all the major gas fire brands.
Along with the actual fire we also fit the surround, hearth and build the fire places, making it not only efficient and safe, but also looking great.
We can source everything for you, working around your current system, whether that means working with a back boiler, or converting from an open fire, or upgrading an old gas fire.
A good gas fire gives that nice cosy feeling that you get from an open fire or log burner with the convenience of no mess or log storage.
Energy Efficiency Upgrade
An energy efficiency upgrade can give you the maximum use out of your system and save you money.
If you have an older style of heating and hot water system we can convert it, bring it up to a more modern and current standard, incorporating all local water By-laws and regulations. All the modern types of timers, programers, weather compensators and smart controls also be installed.
In a typical UK household, over half the utility bill goes towards providing heating and hot water. As fuel costs rise, having an efficient and cost effective heating system is vital, and it’s one of the main steps you can take to reducing your carbon footprint.
It’s important to understand your current heating system. Nearly all homes in the UK have either a central heating system consisting of a boiler and radiators, or they use electric storage heaters. Some homes will also make use of individual heaters that are not part of the main central heating system.
Some energy-saving improvements you might consider are:
Replace your boiler with a newer more efficient model.
Fit better controls to make sure your boiler only provides heat where and when you want it.
Switch to a lower or cheaper carbon fuel technology.
Improve your insulation and draught-proofing.
Use chemical inhibitors to help maintain your central heating system.

Gas Landlord and Safety Certificates
The purpose of having a Gas Landlord Safety Inspection
Gas Safe and Corgi both state that all gas appliances must be inspected each year.
Manufacturers of gas appliances also recommend that their appliances must be serviced each year.
It is law for a landlord to do this in their properties to ensure the safety of their tenants, however it is not yet law for home owners to do the same, which means home owners are more at risk as it is common to forget or leave it till tomorrow.
Unchecked gas appliances can be dangerous. At L.M. Heating and Plumbing Ltd, we take gas safety very seriously and recommend everyone have these inspections, not just Landlords.
We are proud to have established a number of working relationships with letting agents and landlords across bristol. wew understabnd the issues with unhapppy tenants. we taje the pressue off deailing with the landlord or tenant as required.
