How much can servicing your boiler SAVE YOU?
We live in a culture where things are generally so cheap to buy we don’t think about looking after what we have, when was the last time you had your computer serviced or the holes in your socks darned? But with a boiler, failing to service it can be a really money trap. Simple faults in a gas boiler are usually easy and inexpensive to fix, so having an annual boiler service is rarely costly and can be preventative to those faults, and a big benefit is you can be sure your boiler is working to the best performance possible, keeping your costs down.
When Should I Service My Gas Boiler?
Most people will service their boiler around September when they turn their central heating back on. Its at this time when a fault can develop which leads to call outs etc. Faults occur and issues develop due to clogged or seized parts because of the lack of use. Ideally, before you turn your central heating back on is for you to get it serviced. Let the engineer turn it on and this could actually reduce the costs of any needed repairs, it is nearly always cheaper to correct a fault before it occurs than witnessing the consequences.
While our services meet al the standards required we always recommend all properties to have a carbon monoxide detector in your home in close proximity to the boiler itself. Carbon monoxide kills around 50 people a year in the UK, you can’t taste it, you can’t see it, you can’t smell it, but it is deadly!
So in addition to a regular service keeping your boiler efficient please do get a carbon monoxide detector.
In short a regular service will help you save on unforeseen breakdowns, fuel bills and possibly your life.
