    Should I get a gas safety check on all appliances at the same time?

    Heating Engineers

    My boiler is due to be serviced but we also had a gas fire installed around 10 months ago. I want to get both safety checked at the same time by the same engineer so they can be on the same schedule. Is it better to have the gas fire serviced early (now) or wait until it is 12 months old but then the boiler check will be 2 months late?

    "Stick to the boiler schedule as the more important one two months is unlikely to make much difference to the fire and the boiler warranty will depend on the service history."

    "It will be cheaper to get it all done in 1 visit
    You only need a safety certificate if it is a rented property
    Other than that there is no legal requirement to have them serviced but it is sensible to do that on a regular basis. Best time to get them serviced would be autumn just before you really need them.
    If you are a landlord then i would definitely get them serviced every year at the same time you get your landlord safety certificate.

    Hope that helps"

    "Hi
    Best if both are done at the same time , so annually they can be done together.
    If you don’t service the fire, then it will be almost 2 years without a safety check.
    Thanks

    "The best advice is to do gas appliance annual services between 10 to 12 months.
    It is better to do both together."

    "Get them both done now. 1 being 2 months early is better than one being late.

    You may lose any warranty you have if done late."

    "Hi
    I would err on the side of caution, I would consider the boiler a priority, so service the gas fire early.

    "It's a quandary for you now. But if you have them both done at the same time all future services will then be simple to arrange plus the cost will be more affordable. If you need a landlords safety certificate then all gas appliances will need to be done anyway. if you have someone in mind for this then perhaps you can ask them? If not I'm happy to help"

    "If you get them both done at the same time. Then they will both be due at the same time next year, in my opinion. Not all engineers have fires in there remittances.
