Lovekin have been servicing gas boilers in North Camp for more than 25 years with skilled engineers, timed appointments and very high quality standards. Many of our customers have been with us over 20 years and we know most on first name terms.

We also service gas fires and install and repair boilers and central heating systems. We work with mains gas only not LPG.
Our service prices all include VAT
We charge £94 to service the first appliance and £68 for each additional appliance but…
We’re offering a £10 introductory discount for new customers, taking the service price down to £84 this time
If you have a neighbour who wants a boiler service too we’ll give each of you a £10 neighbour discount if you make the arrangements to have them done together and, for new customers, that’s in addition to the introductory discount!
Where repair work or parts are needed we charge extra but we’ll discuss it with you first. We take payment when we finish; transfer, cash, or cheque are fine but we don’t take cards.
Lovekin are proud to be Worcester Accredited Installers. We’re also Gas Safe Registered.
Correct flame picture checked during a boiler service. The blue colour is what we’re looking for. Orange, red and mauve tinges are fine, usually caused by dust particles of metallic salts passing through the burner; pale yellow flames which are the colour of a match flame or candle flame would indicate danger and a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. In between the rows of flame ports (holes) on the burner are smaller retention ports. Flames tend to lift off larger ports but not smaller ports. The retention ports are there to constantly relight the base of the flames from the larger ports, preventing flame lift.

During servicing we would normally check either main burner pressure, inlet working pressure or measure the gas rate at the meter. It’s important to know that the correct amount of gas is being burnt.

We produce a separate web site recording information about central heating problems and fault-finding at www.lovekin.net. You can read about radiator balancing and boiler efficiency and Honeywell motorised valve problems, among other articles.
Startling orange flame tips but this is harmless and will quickly settle down. The colour is caused by dust particles of metallic salts passing through the burner and flames when the dust was disturbed during servicing. Even the sodium yellow colour of old fashioned street lamps is not a problem. The pale white/yellow colour of a match flame or candle flame should, however, ring alarm bells!
Analysis results showing clean, efficient combustion.
The ratio is the most important figure. The pressure figure is the inlet working pressure at the gas valve. The gross efficiency of the boiler is 88.7% which is very good, with only 11.3% of the energy being lost.
