Why You Should Regularly Get A Boiler Serviced

It is easy to ignore gas boiler service until something goes wrong on a chilly winter night. Regular servicing can save you the headache of enduring the night without heating or hot water. Here are some important reasons you should book a boiler service well before any major breakdowns.

  1. Most households use boilers all year round, even if it seems that the appliance works only in winter. That’s because most boiler issues affect people more when they need heating the most – winter. With annual boiler servicing, your heating engineer will be able to catch any issues with the boiler early before they snowball into a major problem.
  2. Servicing your boiler means the appliance will run more efficiently. This will cut down your energy bills over time, particularly if you have a modern energy-efficient boiler.
  3. Some homeowners think that servicing a boiler is too expensive and is generally a waste of money. However, this isn’t always true. First, a boiler service does not cost too much, especially if you have boiler cover. Secondly, regularly servicing your boiler is by far cheaper than replacing your boiler entirely due to irreparable damages.
  4. Your boiler will last longer with regular service. This means you are less likely to spend money on buying a new boiler sooner than you should if you take boiler service seriously. Running regular checks and maintenance will keep your appliance working optimally and reduce frequent breakdowns.
  5. If you have a warranty, you can claim money for any repairs provided you service your boiler annually. However, if you fail to service your appliance for more than a year, you may void your warranty. Ensure to check the conditions of your boiler warranty and book a boiler service on time if it is required.
