Why It’s Important to get your Boiler Serviced
It is recommended you service your boiler annually. A registered Gas Safe Engineer will come to
your home and run checks for any potential issues. They will clean the boiler’s filters
if applicable, check for leaks, and run combustion checks to make sure they comply
with the manufacturer’s instructions. A service takes around one hour, and the
process is quick and easy. The Engineer will talk you through the service and can
answer any questions you may have. It saves money long-term, and enables your
boiler to remain in optimum condition.
Reasons to Service Your Boiler
- Gas Safe Engineers can find leaks or faults before they escalate
- It is cost-effective compared to replacing your entire boiler
- You remain under warranty with your manufacturer
- You keep yourself and your family safe
Servicing Saves You Money
Over the years, an unserviced boiler will become less efficient and increase your gas
consumption and your monthly bills. The cost of a service far outweighs the cost of an
ineffective boiler. Unexpected repairs can be expensive, and if left to culminate, these
can worsen over time and lead to an even bigger cost. Not only will this impact you
personally, it could impact your family. Should the Gas Safe Engineer find a fault with
your boiler during a service, they usually come equipped with a wide range of spare
parts that means they could potentially resolve your boiler’s issue on the spot. If they
don’t have the necessary part, they can order the correct equipment to return at a
later date to fix it.
An unserviced boiler can potentially be dangerous to you and your family. Carbon
Monoxide poisoning can be fatal. You cannot see, smell, or taste this toxic gas. By
servicing your boiler, a Gas Safe Engineer can certify your boiler is safe and not a risk
to your household. If left without a service, there might be unknown issues that could
be detrimental to your health, and also lead to a complete boiler replacement.
