Boiler servicing is a common household task that should be regularly done but often gets overlooked or put off until it is too late.
We take our cars for an MOT each year to make sure they are safe, and your boiler should not be any different. Our heating engineers are often called out to faulty boilers with substantial repair costs that could have been avoided if they had been properly maintained.
It is easy to forget to book your boiler in for a service if it all seems to be working correctly but it is still an important check for your home, and we’re going to explain to you just how important it is to get your boiler serviced.
Why should I get my boiler serviced?
Keep your boiler running smoothly
No matter the age of your boiler, it should be serviced regularly to ensure it is working as it should. It may feel like a costly task, but it can help you save money in the long run as it will ensure your boiler is working smoothly, meaning you can enjoy a cosy, happy home.
Avoid high repair/replacement costs
Regularly getting your boiler checked can save you money in several ways, including avoiding high repair costs. We are often called out to boilers that have not been serviced regularly or looked after properly which results in expensive repairs or replacements.
These valuable problems can often be avoided if you just regularly book your boiler in for a service. During a boiler service our engineers will check a variety of things to ensure your boiler is working correctly. Whilst they are carrying out these checks, they will spot any issues early before they become an expensive problem! A boiler that is properly maintained is less likely to have a breakdown, so you can avoid pricey replacements.
In some cases, your boiler warranty will only be valid through regular boiler servicing so be sure to check the rules and regulations of your boiler guarantee to ensure you are covered!
Potentially save money on your energy bills
It is important that we all do our bit to cut down on our energy usage to try and reduce our carbon footprint and also save money – by getting your boiler serviced regularly you are doing just that!
You could argue that having a boiler service itself is an expensive task but by checking it is working efficiently it will use less energy resulting in lower energy bills. The efficiency of your boiler depends on its age and model.
