Boiler maintenance is crucial because your boiler has a tough job. Not only does it supply you with a plentiful amount of hot water, it keeps your home toasty warm, and you… happy!
Just like any other hardworking appliance, it’s crucial to keep your boiler well-maintained to ensure it’s in top condition. So, if you’re thinking you can skip that service or delay a check-up, we’ve outlined a few reasons you might want to reconsider…
Potential Problem Spotting
In the same way a car service will highlight any issues that might keep you off the road, boiler maintenance and servicing will detect any underlying issues that could leave you feeling pretty chilly, and not too happy further down the line. By having your boiler serviced by a qualified engineer, such as our team, we’ll be able to spot any problems and set about getting them fixed before they get any worse.
Not only will this save you from waking up one morning to a cold shower, but it could also save you spending a significant amount of your hard-earned cash on repairing a broken boiler.
An in-depth service will ensure your boiler is working to it’s best. If your boiler isn’t operating at its maximum capacity, you could find that you’re shelling out way more than you should for your heating bills.
Opt for a Gas Safe Registered engineer like our guys to service your boiler, and they’ll fully test all of the components to see whether anything needs to be replaced. The same applies for new boilers… just because it’s shiny and new doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be maintained.
Boilers on the blink can be dangerous weapons. If yours hasn’t been correctly installed, or regularly maintained, it can be extremely hazardous to your household. Carbon Monoxide, often referred to as the silent killer, is both odourless and colourless, making it particularly difficult to spot. It can cause serious illness, and in some cases can be fatal.
The best way to prevent a carbon monoxide leak is to have your boiler serviced regularly, by a trained professional. Our team will be able to spot any issues that might lead to a future leak, and put it right before it gets nasty. We’d also recommend installing a carbon monoxide alarm to detect leaks.
The usual recommendation is that you have your boiler serviced and maintained annually. This will help to keep it in top condition and performing as it should. Though, if you feel that your boiler isn’t working as efficiently as you’d like it to, seems to be having a bad day or makes any form of strange sounds… give us a call, and we’ll be happy to take a look.
