If you are wondering whether you should get your boiler serviced annually, here are 6 reasons why we think it is absolutely essential that you should.
1. You Can Identify Potential Problems Before They Get Too Serious
We believe that prevention is always better than a repair and so our heating engineers are highly skilled and experienced in identifying potential problems with your boiler.
The annual service allows our team to inspect the key components and analyse the system to ensure everything is working as it should.
If there are any issues, we can often make very slight adjustments to solve the problem preventing any additional costs – or even worse, a boiler failure when you least expect it.
2. You Can Save Money On Your Energy Bills
If the boiler is having to work harder than it should, for example, it is not heating up quick enough, it may be using additional gas and/or electricity in the process.
This will inevitably use additional energy which will increase your energy bills – and let’s face it, we all know how high they are at the minute.
Getting your boiler serviced annually will ensure the boiler is working efficiently as it possibly can – keeping your energy bills in check.
3. You Can Keep Your Home and Your Family Safe
Gas is a dangerous substance that must be controlled and treated with caution. The last thing you want in your home is a gas leak.
Damaged or inefficient gas boilers can also produce dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide which can be lethal.
By having your boiler serviced annually, we will ensure that all potential issues that may cause leaks or dangerous gases are rectified – giving you complete peace of mind.
4. It’s Cheaper than Replacing Your Boiler
Replacing your boiler isn’t cheap but it’s inevitable at some point.
Carrying out an annual service will extend its lifespan considerably keeping your home warm and providing hot water for as long as possible.
5. You Will Protect Your Warranty
If you have invested in a new boiler, you must get an annual service to ensure you maintain your warranty. We work with fantastic companies such as Vaillant which provide warranties of up to 10 years providing incredible peace of mind in the knowledge that any issues will be covered.
Why risk it?
6. If You Are a Landlord – It’s the Law
If you are letting your property it is now mandatory that you carry out all gas safety checks on an annual basis to ensure the property and your tenants are safe. With standard penalties of a £6000 fine and/or 6 months imprisonment, it is essential you ensure they are carried out.
