Just like any other home appliance, it’s crucial to keep your boiler professionally serviced to ensure it’s in top condition and working to it’s best potential. As a landlord, you’ll want peace of mind that the boiler in your rented property is working to it’s best. Because nobody wants a tenant left in the cold. We’ve outlined a few reasons why boiler servicing really does pay.
In the same way a car service will highlight any issues that might lead you to take the bus, boiler servicing can detect any potential issues that could leave your tenants without hot water or heating when they most need it. By having your boiler checked by a qualified engineer, such as our boiler servicing 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 to the cries of help from a tenant without no hot water, it could also save you spending a serious amount of cash on repairing a broken boiler.
Avoid High Heating Bills
An in-depth boiler servicing will ensure your boiler is working just as it should. If it isn’t operating to its maximum capacity, your tenants might find that they’re paying out way more than you should for their 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 brand new doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be maintained.
Boilers that are on the blink can be dangerous. If yours hasn’t been correctly installed, or regularly maintained, it can put your property, and it’s tenants at risk. Carbon Monoxide, often known as the silent killer, is odourless, making it extremely difficult to spot to the untrained eye. It can cause serious illness, and in some cases can be fatal. Not something you want to offer paying tenants.
The best way to prevent a carbon monoxide leak is to have your boiler serviced regularly, by a qualified professional. Our team will be able to spot any issues that might lead to a leak, and put it right before it gets nasty. We’d also recommend installing a carbon monoxide alarm to detect leaks.
A Sound Investement
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. By keeping it working in tip top condition, you’ll protect your investment as a property agent, allowing you to keep tenants happy and repeat contracts flooding in.
Need our help? If you feel that your boiler isn’t working as well as you’d like it to, seems to be having a bad day or your tenants are reporting strange sounds… give us a call, and we’ll be happy to take a look.
