Don't Skip Your Annual Boiler Service - Here's Why

Your boiler works hard year-round to provide heating and hot water for your Essex home. But even with proper maintenance, componentry wears down over time through constant operation. That's why an annual boiler service is so crucial - to ensure safe, efficient performance and catch any small issues before they escalate into larger, costly problems.

At SGR Plumbing & Heating, we understand the temptation to put off or skip this yearly service, especially if your boiler seems to be running smoothly. However, ignoring your boiler's maintenance needs is a gamble that could lead to:

  • Leaks and water damage from undetected faults

  • Increased energy bills from an inefficient boiler

  • Safety risks like potential gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning

  • Premature system failure requiring expensive replacement

  • Complete heating system breakdowns during winter's coldest months

Don't take chances with your family's comfort and safety. Book your annual boiler service today and enjoy peace of mind all year long.

Why Our Customers Love Us

Over the past year, Stuart has been an indispensable asset for my letting property in Hornchurch, especially when it comes to ensuring the bungalow is safe and compliant with gas safety regulations.

What sets Stuart apart is not just his professionalism but his commitment to service. He is always prompt, reliable, and his responsiveness and attention to detail have given me peace of mind, knowing that our property is in the safest of hands.

I am also really grateful for Stuart's calm and positive attitude during moments of unexpected crises. On two separate occasions, he has proven to be my family's knight in shining armour. The first instance involved an emergency call for my niece last year, and the most recent was a distressing situation late last week Monday evening when my daughter experienced a burst pipe in her kitchen. Despite the inconvenient hours, Stuart was there without hesitation, bringing not just his tools and expertise, but a calm and reassuring presence that helped my daughter navigate that stressful evening.

It is rare to encounter someone who not only excels in their technical skills but also in their human connection. Stuart's patience, kindness, and willingness to go above and beyond is truly commendable. He is not just a service provider; he is someone that I know, like and trust to take care of the plumbing and heating services of my own properties and that of my family and friends.

I wholeheartedly recommend Stuart of SGR Plumbing and Heating Limited to anyone in need of plumbing and heating services. His work ethic, reliability, and compassionate approach are unmatched.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stuart and team when he installed a new boiler at my apartment, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Stuart promptly visited my apartment to assess the situation and understand my requirements. What impressed me most was his ability to remain calm and composed amidst the pressure from the letting agent and the tenant whilst I was abroad.

Stuart provided me with a quote, ensuring that all aspects of the installation, including the removal of the rusted boiler, were covered. This attention to detail and commitment to delivering a complete solution demonstrated his dedication to providing an excellent service.

Throughout the installation process, Stuart maintained excellent communication, keeping me informed about the progress and any developments. This level of transparency and proactive communication was commendable.

Stuart's work left the tenant happy and satisfied.

The new boiler was installed seamlessly to ensure its optimal performance. I also had a new hob fitted to my home by Stuart so I can highly recommend SGR Plumbing and Heating Ltd.
