Re: Boiler Maintenance in single family home

Recently quoted chf 870 for an annual service for a Weisshaupt gas boiler:
chf 500 for the boiler service,
chf 200 for a "wartungsfirma" inc verschalung(?) and cleaning of the boiler block(?)
chf 28 for chimney sweep
chf 80 for installation.
plus VAT

Is that normal for an annual service? Seems a lot but then, well, Switzerlanded.
500 for a service?
200 to clean?

Those seem a bit high.

Not sure what they mean by "installation", and the flue doesn't normally need sweeping with gas. Usually it is a stainless tube and needs at best checking that the grate is intact, and that the trap at the bottom isn't full of condensate or such.

iirc we paid something like 300/year for ours, but that also included a parts insurance cost.
