Fake and Copy Boiler Parts are a growing menace

Due to the growing increase in the prices of boiler spare parts due to manufacturer annual list price inflation, it's becoming noticeable that more and more fake and copy parts are finding their way into the UK market place. Especially from websites that do not have direct accounts to the boiler manufacturers supplies of original and new spares or access to reputable distribution companies.

If the price of a  part advertised online seems considerably cheaper than the prices advertised by us and other reputable online traders, you can be sure that this is probably a copy part or it is second hand.

We receive so many emails and telephone calls from people who have purchased spare parts from sites like eBay,  that the part supplied does not work, it seems different to their original part being replaced or it breaks down within a few weeks and there is no manufacturers warranty with the part and of course they now end up paying once again for the part.

Of course there is also the danger that with copy parts or second hand parts that you could also invalidate the warranty on your boiler which could lead to all sorts or expensive problems.

Keep your family safe and your hard earned cash in your pocket, don't take the chance.

Always use a Gas Safe Registered Heating Engineer, Plumber or Heating and Plumbing Contractor that may be doing any form of installation or repairs. The attached link lists the various ways you can verify that the person attending your property or business premises is qualified and competently trained to install and maintain any gas consuming appliance. #checkgassafety

All Boilers should be serviced annually even those that come with long manufacturer backed warranties: #annualboilerservice  

A Gas Safe registered engineer should service your gas boiler, so you can be sure that it works safely and efficiently.

Keeping your boiler in good working order could help reduce the likelihood of a boiler breakdown and may reduce your energy bills too.

 A rough guide of what to expect the service to cover, this list isn't exhaustive and is only provided as a reference point:

1. Visual check to ensure your boiler still meets current standards
2. Boiler fired to identify any working faults
3. Boiler casing removed to check all main boiler components (burner, heat exchanger, main injector, spark/sensor probe).
4. Checks to ensure flue terminals are unobstructed and internal flue components are sealed properly
5. Gas valve adjusted to check that burner is combusting efficiently and properly (normally using a flue gas analyser).
6. Inside casing surfaces inspected and cleaned
7. Boiler parts cleaned if necessary
8. Gas tightness test conducted to ensure no leaks
9. Boiler casing put back on - ensuring that it is properly sealed
10. You should receive a service report that shows everything the engineer has done to maintain your boiler, keep this report somewhere safe. If you ever need to make a claim against a manufacturers warranty they will want to see evidence of annual servicing.
