We realise that a faulty boiler can be a very stressful time for many people, especially if you have a family. At Mercer Heating, you can rest assured we will always:
A Boiler Service otherwise known as a boiler check is an annual check-up of the condition, health and state of your Boiler. Just like you take your vehicle for M.O.T check-ups, the same is also true for boilers. One of the main reasons for getting your boiler serviced is to ensure that it’s performing at its absolute optimum levels and doing its jobs correctly. Not having your boiler properly serviced and maintained can lead to many unwanted problems or even a full breakdown.
By avoiding annual boiler checks and servicing, you run the risk of ending up with a complete breakdown of your boilers service - resulting in badly damaged and worn-out parts and components. The idea is to avoid ending up having to spend a fortune on a boiler repair!
Please note: a boiler service cannot be carried out if the boiler is not in full working order. A boiler repair would need to be arranged prior to a boiler service being carried out
Your boiler is an integral part of enjoying comfort in your home, therefore the benefits of an annual boiler service will do 4 main things. These are:
Detect and prevent any potential faults early before they develop more serious. (Mechanical, electronical, physical).
Ensure maximum efficiency and performance from your boiler by cleaning the internal section and inlets and outlets of the boiler, therefore, improving the efficiency of fuel burn.
A more efficient boiler also means you save more money in the long run.
And perhaps most importantly, a boiler service checks for defective parts or any potential leaks which in turn keeps you and your loved ones safe from harm’s way.
A gas safety certificate or check involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your gas appliance(s).
They will check the appliance is working correctly and will check the following four areas:
Check appliance for gas tightness, standing and working pressure.
An appliance cannot be deemed as having been checked, until the above have been completed. The check will identify any defects which require remedial work. You should have a gas safety check every year. If you are a landlord this is the law. For a Landlords Safety Record inspection, a tightness test of the full system should be added to the above.

MagnaCleanse is a new and less evasive flushing process designed to maintain and protect all domestic central heating systems from the damaging effects of iron oxide sludge buildup.
Not only does it clean the system, but it also provides ongoing protection for the boiler with the installation of a MagnaClean filter. This protection lasts throughout the lifetime of the boiler and helps to reduce central heating energy bills by up to 6%.
The objective is to catch and remove deposits of iron oxide sludge, rust and any other magnetic debris from the radiators and pipework and restore systems with circulation problems or boiler noises caused by the murky water and corrosion deposits. MagnaCleanse in conjunction with a permanently installed MagnaClean filter can remove these deposits and the problems that they cause.
While power flushing is extremely effective when carried out by a qualified engineer, it's a fact that the build-up of iron oxide is an ongoing issue within the system.
MagnaCleanse delivers an extremely effective solution because it not only removes just as much sludge from the heating system, it also provides ongoing lifetime protection with the installation of a MagnaClean domestic filter.
Some of the main signs that your system could need a system MagnaCleanse with a MagnaClean filter installed:
Mercer Heating will install a magnetic filter to the central heating system (if you do not have one pre-installed)
The MagnaCleanse unit can be attached to any pressurised central heating system without the need for a pre-installed MagnaClean filter but having a MagnaClean filter already installed on your central heating pipework can speed up the cleaning process.
Once the professional MagnaCleanse unit has been connected to the system, with the added help of some specially formulated high-strength cleaning chemicals the engineer will filter the heating system pipework and radiators with the use of the boiler at a high temperature.
Using a VibraClean tool for 15-20 seconds on each radiator will agitate any loose debris that the very strong magnetic filter will pick up. Once the water in the MagnaCleanse starts to run clear the engineer will disconnect the MagnaCleanse. He will then reinstall a permanent MagnaClean filter (if required), add the system inhibitor then refill the system to the correct pressure.
Having your heating system and boiler fitted with a MagnaClean filter will make the system more efficient. This occurs because the small magnetic filter will catch any future build-up of iron oxide providing long-lasting protection and better circulation throughout the radiators and central heating pipework. This in turn means the boiler will not have to work as hard to heat the house and water. Therefore, the overall result is that you protect your boiler from blockages and save money on your energy bills by up to 6%.
