Why you need to maintain your boiler
Regular servicing minimises the risk of breakdown and helps lengthen the lifespan of your boiler too. You should have your boiler serviced annually to ensure it’s running efficiently and safely for the year ahead. It may also be necessary to validate any manufacturer’s warrantees you have on the appliance.
Servicing your boiler keeps you safe
Regularly servicing your boiler ensures it is combusting fuel safely and efficiently, minimizing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. This toxic gas is odourless, colourless and tasteless, meaning that it is hard to detect naturally. A trained heating engineer will validate your system to ensure it is safe.
Regular servicing keeps you heathy
For the elderly, vulnerable or those with young children, having an efficient working boiler is a must for the colder months ahead because for these people a lack of heating and hot water can have severe health and financial repercussions.
It’s not just homeowners who need to take note of boiler maintenance. Landlords are obliged to have a gas safety certificate by law and must ensure their boilers are running safely. An annual boiler service is essential and a relatively inexpensive piece of maintenance to undergo each year.
So why should you service it now?
Once the first cold snaps of winter hit, so will the boiler breakdowns. Heating engineers across the country will be inundated with call outs and you are likely to have to wait much longer to get your central heating and hot water back up-and-running. And it will almost certainly be more expensive to fix. But if you service your boiler now, not only do you ensure it is working correctly (making it far less likely to break down once you turn the heating’s turned back on in the autumn), you can also choose when to have it serviced. No panic, no sitting in the cold, no washing/showering in very cold water.
Servicing your boiler now can save you money
Maintaining a hard-working appliance like your boiler and heating system will almost certainly save you money in the long run – because the cost can be significantly less than repairing or replacing an appliance which is not serviced and breaks down. Your boiler is one of the more expensive household appliances to replace and if not working can cause the most upset to everyday life.
