Maintenance Contracts from Gas Technical Services
Because nobody knows when a boiler or heating system is going to break down, it is always the best policy to ensure all gas appliances are properly serviced every 12 months. Sometimes it is a condition of your home insurance policy that you do have gas appliances regularly serviced, therefore you should always check the small print in your insurance home contents documents.
Either way, failure to have gas appliances serviced every 12 months by a properly qualified CORGI registered gas installer can result in you placing yourself or your family at risk through a gas escape or Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
Lack of regular maintenance also causes gas appliances and heating systems to fail more regularly, often resulting in higher repair costs than if they had been correctly maintained annually.
Many customers want some form of regular maintenance contract which will give them some form of protection and peace of mind against a breakdown and some way of guaranteeing instant assistance in the event of such an emergency.
