In addition to an annual basis boiler service, it is usually the requirement of many boiler manufacturers and their offers with extended warranties and guarantees. This is most evident with newer boilers, where the manufacture requires an annual boiler service to stay compliant with the warranty/guarantee agreement. 

When Moving Home
