Plumbing & Heating Services
What is the Gas Safe Register?
The Gas Safe Register is a formal index of businesses across the UK, Isle of Man, and Guernsey (typically within the construction, engineering, and plumbing industries) that are legally permitted to carry out ‘gas work’ - which may include the handling of piped natural gas, alongside liquid petroleum gas. All gas engineers in the UK must be present on this register by law.
In order to successfully acquire a place on the gas safe register, businesses and their associated engineers or plumbers must complete a range of core qualifications - ensuring their knowledge and skills are of a suitable standard to complete gas work safely and to a high standard. B. A. Boyle’s gas engineers and plumbers hold all relevant domestic gas safety certificates and can be found under number 668561 on the register.
How much does boiler servicing cost?
Arranging annual or frequent boiler servicing is one of the best ways to ensure that your boiler is in the best possible working condition - ensuring it fulfils its full lifespan and helping avoid unexpected costs in the event of a malfunction or breakdown. Servicing costs vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including whether your service is completed by an engineer as a ‘one-off’ job or booked through an ongoing annual cover service, and the company selected to complete the service. With this being said, the UK national average boiler servicing cost for 2021 sits at just over £100.
If you’re looking to service your boiler, and are located in the Suffolk area, contact B.A. Boyle & Son for a free consultation call, during which our Gas Safe registered team of engineers will work to establish an approximate price point.
How much does boiler installation cost?
Boiler installation can be a tricky task to arrange amongst household jobs and busy schedules. The cost of this service can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including whether or not installation is offered as part of the new boiler purchase price, the model of boiler to be installed, whether or not ‘smart’ extras are to be equipped alongside the boiler, if the boiler location is to be moved, whether or not extra pipework is required, the general complexity of the installation, and the company selected to complete the service. Common add-on services designed to ensure that your new boiler operates as efficiently as possible (such as heating system cleaning) can also add to costs. According to UK averages, installation only costs can range anywhere from £700 at their most simple and basic, to upwards of £3000.

How can I lower my heating bills?
There are a large number of ways to reduce your heating bills, most of which include ways of managing energy consumption and efficiency. Whilst age-old tips include turning off appliances whilst they’re not in use, purchasing a smart meter, investing in efficient appliances, turning down your thermostat, and installing long-lasting insulating fittings such as double or triple glazed windows - our gas engineering team have a lesser-known set of tips concerning boilers.
Firstly - we recommend replacing any boiler over 10 years old (particularly those already on the brink) with a newer, more efficient model. Though this is, of course, an upfront investment, the energy-saving abilities of newer models will soon cut your energy bills significantly.
In addition, we recommend keeping a close eye on your heating system’s efficiency. One of the best ways to do so is to book an annual boiler service, throughout which a Gas Safe registered engineer will be able to spot and address any system issues far in advance - ensuring optimum efficiency, and preventing costly breakdowns.
How often should boilers be serviced?
Boiler servicing is an often overlooked, boiler-saving and money-saving option, available for all boiler types at reasonable price points from registered gas engineers across the UK. This system check involves a number of internal and external exams, alongside extensive efficiency tests - and is hailed as one of the best ways to maintain boiler performance, preventing future breakdowns.
In order to ensure optimal efficiency, and to spot potential warning signs for problems down the line, boiler servicing should be completed approximately once per year.

How quickly can a bathroom be installed?
Ultimately, the amount of time required to fully install a bathroom is dependent on a number of factors. The primary influences on installation timescales include the complexity and scale of the project, the tasks to be completed throughout the installation (often including framing, general plumbing, flooring installation, tiling, wiring, plastering, cabinet and worktop installation, shower fitting, bath fitting, sink and toilet installation, and painting), and the company or fitter selected to complete the work.
As timelines can vary so significantly in line with the infinite range of bathroom designs, layouts, fixtures, fittings, and finishes, there’s no one set UK average. Typically, however, an install can take anywhere from five days to upwards of two weeks to complete.
What happens in a boiler service?
Boiler servicing consists of a number of carefully calibrated tests and checks - designed to ensure the lifespan and efficiency of your home’s most important appliance. Typically, during a service, a Gas Safe registered engineer will conduct a visual inspection of the boiler itself and its associated pipework, before completing an operation check, and an internal inspection. Most boiler services include component cleaning.
B. A. Boyle’s comprehensive boiler servicing options include the following:
- Internal and external exams
- Pressure and gas flow checks
- Flue analysis
- Electrical component inspection and checks
- Key component checks
- Seal inspections
- Electrode checks
- Safety device checks
- Condensate trap and pipe checks
What happens if you don’t service your boiler?
Whilst servicing is not a legal requirement in owned domestic properties, it offers significant cost-saving and maintenance benefits when completed on a regular basis. Without it, easily resolvable issues can be left undetected for extended periods of time, leading to system inefficiency, avoidable breakdowns and costly repairs.
In some cases, leaving a boiler unserviced for a period of one year may also invalidate your manufacturer’s warranty or insurance.
The cost of regular servicing is more than worth the benefits servicing brings to this key appliance. If you’d like to book in for a boiler service completed by Gas Safe engineers in the Suffolk areas, contact B. A. Boyle for a free, no-obligation consultation using our online form, or over the phone.
Does central heating need to be serviced?
It is highly recommended, though not a legal requirement, that domestic boilers and their associated central heating systems are serviced annually in order to prevent costly malfunctions and ensure optimal efficiency. Whilst unmaintained boilers may develop unnoticed problems leading to unexpected catastrophic breakdowns, servicing allows engineers invaluable insight into the condition of the appliance, allowing for any low-level problems to be resolved prior to worsening.
Please note, boiler servicing is a legal requirement for rental properties, and is to be arranged by landlords annually.

What should I do if my boiler breaks down?
Boiler failure, particularly in the depths of the cold winter months, can be uncomfortable, frustrating, and stressful - however, it’s important to keep calm, and follow the correct procedure in order to ensure you’re able to get it back up and running again as quickly as possible.
- Firstly, identify the signs of boiler failure. Though these typically equate to a loss of hot water or heat, it’s also important to note if there’s a yellow, orange, or generally ‘lazy’ pilot light, any strange noises, irregular water pressure, condensation, or highly increased gas consumption/electricity bills (indicating efficiency issues).
- If the boiler’s screen displays an error number, note it down.
- Turn the boiler off and contact an emergency Gas Safe registered engineer to repair or replace the boiler. If there’s soot marks around the boiler, or a noticeable smell of gas in the air, call the emergency gas line on 0800 111 999.
- Take steps to ensure you and your household members are able to stay warm in the time leading up to repairs - particularly where the elderly or children are involved.
