Did you know that summer is the ideal time to get your boiler serviced?
Ok so it's the last thing you want to think about while the sun is out and it's warm, but you can guarantee that as soon as the temperature drops homeowners across the UK will be turning on their heating systems only to find it's not working. All avoidable with a service over the summer months.
Why do I need to maintain my boiler?
Regular maintenance helps lengthen the lifespan of your boiler and minimises the risk of breakdown when you need it. You service your car every year to make sure it's running smoothly and a boiler is no different. Not only will it validate any manufacturer’s warranties you have on the appliance it will also make sure it’s running efficiently and safely for the coming cold weather.
Servicing your boiler keeps you safe and healthy.
Regularly servicing your boiler can minimise the risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning by checking for any potential leaks. Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas that is odourless, colourless and tasteless. There is a real danger to anyone with a fuel-burning appliance if this gas was to ever escape. Most people don’t even know they are being poisoned with Carbon Monoxide.
While the boiler breaking down can be an inconvenience for most of us, for the elderly, vulnerable or those with young children, a lack of heating and hot water can have severe health and financial repercussions.
Landlords... by law you must have a gas safety certificate and ensure their boilers are running safely. An annual boiler service is essential and a relatively inexpensive piece of maintenance to ensure your tennants are safe.
Why should I service it now?
Get ahead of the crowd. As soon as the cold comes and people turn their boilers on the calls will start flooding in. We'll be jam packaged with people wanting their boiler fixed ASAP so if you have your service now, you'll beat the rush.
You can choose to have it serviced whenever you want. We just think servicing your boiler it when you don't need is good preparation for when you do need it as it's better than having to raid the Christmas fund, which brings us nicely onto our next point…
Servicing your boiler saves you money
Looking after something will almost always save you money in the long run. It saves you buying the same thing over and over again if you look after it and your boiler is no different. The cost of regularly maintaining your boiler can be significantly less than the cost of repairing or replacing it when it's not been serviced and breaks down. When it comes to household appliances, your boiler is one of the more expensive ones to replace and can cause the most upset to everyday life.
