    3-year old boiler... will my 7-year warranty be affected if I switch the annual service to a plumber other than the installer? We're looking at another local small-business man who is on the Gas Safe list and 'ticks all the right boxes', but is not on the maker's list.

    Make sure you get a service sheet and/or the back of the book filled in.
    Cheapest isn't always best!!
    Why are you switching?

    Benchmark service record usually in the back of the installation manual must be filled in when serviced by the Gas Safe engineer.

    He hasn't actually said anything yet, but we suspect our present man may be preparing for retirement, and we want to be prepared :)

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    What boiler is it?
    Some require parts/more in depth service at certain intervals

    Sorry for the delay - think this is the last post I've needed to catch up on...
    The boiler is a Baxi EcoBlue 16, fitted in 2014.
