Your new home’s heating survey

Pimlico will perform a visual assessment of your central heating system, before providing a report that details the condition and its performance. Our survey is a smart investment in the long-term health and safety of your home. We assess the following:

  • The age and condition of your boiler
  • The general condition of your radiators
  • The condition of visible pipework
  • The thermostat controls
  • Underfloor heating
  • The heating controls
  • Hot water cylinder

Pimlico Group will help identify any existing and potential issues, giving you a clearer view of the central heating system’s condition and performance. All of our gas engineers are Gas Safe registered, making them fully qualified to perform these checks.  If changes or upgrades are required, accurate estimates will be provided.

Does your boiler require servicing?

A central heating survey is not an alternative to getting your boiler serviced. A full boiler service is an important health check of your heating system that should be conducted each year. It’s also necessary for keeping your boiler warranty intact.

It’s the perfect opportunity to get a full boiler service at the same time as your central heating survey, so why not upgrade and book both in the same visit with one of our engineers?

Additionally, a central heating survey is separate from the Gas Safety Record [CP12], which is a certified safety check of your gas appliances and a legal requirement for landlords of tenanted properties. In need of a gas safety check? Get in touch with our qualified team today.
