Diagnose and repair faults gas faults


Not all repairers are the same Unlike some repair services, Pace Heating & Plumbing diagnose and repair your fault and do not just replace items until the problem disappears! Also we do not advocate a replacement appliance unless there is good reason. However if your boiler is old or uses a permanent pilot you should consider changing it for a new condensing boiler as this will save you money on gas and help protect the environment.
The fault may lie in the heating system not the appliance and we fault diagnose and replace failed motorized valves, time clocks, room thermostats, or leaking radiator valves where required.
Parts replaced are covered by a 90 day guarantee.

Annual servicing why bother?

Gas appliances need regular servicing to ensure your safety, that the appliance is operating efficiently and as a requirement of Gas regulations; which recommend a regular schedule of maintenance is carried out. Manufacturers also recommend annual servicing and often forms part of their guarantee.
From 2007 it will form part of the home buyers pack to ensure that details of maintenance and repair work are recorded. Indeed Benchmark exists now, which requires all new appliances installed are properly maintained.
Just as you would service your car and MOT it, gas appliances should also be serviced.
Landlords are required to MOT (gas safety check) their appliances and installations BY LAW. It is a recommendation for home owners, remember gas appliances are inherently safe but the safety of your family and home, depend on those safety devices working correctly. Don't put family and your safety at risk from Carbon monoxide poisoning or dangerous incidents. Ensure you regularly service your gas appliances.
