Immediately after lunch today (specifically at 1:13pm), I rang up Wades who installed our heater, because it’s about time for our annual service. I think we only need to service it every two years, and we had them do it last year if memory serves, but it’s a good idea - in my humble opinion - to have them give it a once-over before we fire it up each winter.
But their answer surprised me: due to a lack of gas fitters in the area, they aren’t currently doing service calls at all… and they can’t recommend anyone either.
I asked, and it won’t affect our warranty - if it ceases working they’ll come out for a repair call, and the warranty will stay in tact.
But jeeze, that’s a new one.
