Why You Should Service Your Boiler

It might seem like an additional expense, but annually servicing your boiler can keep you from worrying about a boiler breakdown in the winter months and help you save money on your monthly heating bills! Here are the benefits of regularly servicing your boiler...

Stay safe with a boiler service

Whilst gas leaks are rare, they're extremely dangerous and should not be risked by not looking after your boiler; book a boiler service and give yourself peace of mind.
If your boiler is leaking carbon monoxide, there's no way of knowing until you feel the symptoms of CO poisoning (nausea, dizziness etc.) as it is a colourless, odourless gas, which unfortunately causes countless deaths each year. To help protect yourself from this, it might also be beneficial to invest in a carbon monoxide alarm for additional peace of mind between boiler checks.
To minimise the risk of a gas leak in your home, our gas engineers thoroughly check for any leaks or weak spots during your annual service to keep you as safe as possible!

An annual boiler service can save you money on your monthly bills

As boilers function, there's a risk of them wearing out and losing efficiency, especially during the months when they're running at full capacity to help keep your home warm. To rectify this, our gas engineers will check for any parts showing signs of wear and tear and make the necessary changes.
A regular boiler service can save you lots of money each month, as your boiler is working more efficiently and wasting less energy, leaving you with more money to spend on the more important things!

Regularly serviced boilers last longer

In a typical household, the boiler is generally one of the most expensive appliances, which unfortunately also makes it one of the most expensive to replace should it ever breakdown. To avoid a costly repair or replacement when the winter months roll around, an annual boiler service can catch out any small problems before they escalate over time.
A well maintained boiler can last from 10-15+ years, so it is essential you keep up to date with servicing to avoid having to replace it sooner than you should need to. 

When should you get your boiler serviced?

The ideal time to get your boiler serviced is during the summer before we move into the colder autumn/winter months. Whilst you might not use your boiler for central heating yet, it will have been inactive for a while so it's best to get it serviced to check for any problems before you need it. 

During the summer months, it's a good idea to run the boiler for around 15 minutes a month to keep it in good shape.
