So why should you service your boiler when it is fired up and working well, and your house is nice and warm?
The Gas Safe Register advises that you should have your boiler serviced annually. When a qualified gas engineer is examining your boiler, they will ensure that your boiler is running safely and will detect if there is any carbon monoxide leaking into your house. Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odourless, gas that can be lethal and has been the cause of many tragedies. Do not put you or your loved ones at risk.
A boiler that is serviced regularly at the advised times will be very efficient. A boiler that isn’t serviced annually could suffer many serious and expensive problems which will reduce its efficiency.
By having your boiler serviced annually, you could potentially save a lot of money. A boiler that is serviced the recommended amount will work more efficiently and smoothly, which will reduce the chances of your boiler from breaking down, saving you the cost of getting it fixed. Regular servicing reduces expensive call outs for boiler breakdowns that could have been easily prevented. In some cases, call outs to boiler breakdowns are simply due to dust getting into the boiler which prevents the boiler from working properly. A service can prevent this. However, now you will have to pay for the boiler to be fixed, plus the cost of a service.
These are just 3 of the main reasons why you should get your boiler serviced, as you simply cannot afford not to! The service should be carried out by a qualified gas engineer who is Gas Safe Registered. For total peace of mind you should also install a carbon monoxide alarm.
