All boiler warranties and some home insurance policies require that you ensure your boiler is serviced and safe to use.
A lot of the newer boiler have long warrenties, some up to 10 even 12 years. if your boiler isn’t serviced every 12 month and the benchmark book not filled out then the warranty is void and any costly repairs in the future will have to be paid for by you
