How to service your boiler as winter coming?

Winter is coming!


Wen October 15th comes, all boilers are put to work. It is the heating season, and it will run through April 15th, at least in Paris. Actually, this period can be extended by contacting the “syndic” of the building when Spring stays chilly.

For apartments equipped with a private heating system, the heating period is not an issue, but occupants must still ensure the proper functioning of electric heaters or gas boiler which the two heating modes available in Paris.

In the first place, you should make sure that your boiler is serviced every year. An annual service keeps your boiler in good working condition and limits wear over time. 

Once the official date of the heating period is here, the tenant has ten days to tell the landlord whether a radiator or a boiler is defective. Indeed, when the inventory of the equipment was carried out, it might have been full summer. The landlord should not be surprised to hear from a tenant, even though he moved in five months earlier. If you’re a landlord, it’s a legal requirement. So radiators will be checked to see if the heat comes in and if the thermostat works. This is true for electric heaters and gas boilers. A qualified Gas Safe registered engineer must, by law, check gas appliances and flues annually to ensure everything is safe and sound. The required checks include boilers, but they also cover other appliances such as stoves and fireplaces

Once the tenant is the regular occupant, he becomes responsible for the annual maintenance. As a matter of fact, the rental lease specifies that the tenant is required to have a service contract for the boiler and, if necessary, sweeping. This check must be done once a year, at the tenant’s expense.

Often, the landlord keeps the maintenance contract in his name, then bills the tenant. This not only ensures that the maintenance is done, but it also ensures that the usual technician who already knows the heating installation will do the job.

In addition, it is advisable for the landlord to have thermostats installed in the rooms so that tenants do not need to intervene on the boiler and modulate the desired temperature. Also, the boiler must be easily accessible in order to supply water when the pressure drops, or when it is necessary to sweep the duct.


There, the installation of the boiler is essential. Otherwise, when dysfunctionning occurs, it might be necessary to dismantle a cupboard, or the panels of the false ceiling to have access.
