Many people think that you only really need to get your boiler checked when things have already gone wrong, but that could not be further from the truth. Here’s what you need to know when to comes to how often you should get your boiler serviced…
Why should I get my boiler serviced?
Getting a boiler service is very much like a ‘check up’ for your home’s boiler. That means that is something that you need to keep on top of. Here at CCG Leeds, we have been doing Leeds Boiler Install for many years now, and cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure that you get your boiler serviced at least once per year.
What are the benefits of servicing my boiler?
One of the biggest benefits of annual servicing is that your boiler is more likely to operate more efficiently. This means that your boiler will be working as optimally as possible which will not only keep your home warm but also increase it’s lifespan. Boilers that are not running efficiently are more likely to be pushing themselves hard than they should have to in order to heat your home.
New boiler installers can be huge investment so it’s important to make sure you are getting as much out of your boiler as you can before you are forced to replace it.
Identify potential problems
Another benefit of regular boiler servicing is it allows your Gas Safe registered heating engineer to identify potential problems that occur in the future. By understanding why is causing an issue before it spirals out of control not only helps your boiler work as it should, it also helps to save you more money and worry in the future.
We find that most boilers don’t break overnight. There tends to be a slow decline in a more wear and tear manner and regular services can prevent that from happening.
Keep your home safe
Regular boiler servicing also helps to keep you and your family safe. Carbon monoxide or CO, is known as ‘the silent killer’ and affects up to 200 people across the UK every year according to NHS statistics. What makes carbon monoxide so dangerous is that fact that it is tasteless, odorless and invisible to the naked eye, meaning that you cannot rely on your normal senses to keep yourself safe.
Carbon monoxide often occurs due to poor ventilation but this is something that a Gas Safe Engineer will be able to identify and fix if needed.
Reasons not to get your boiler serviced
None. There is not one good reason why you should not get regular services. Other than the reasons we’ve explained above, most warranties make it clear that in order to keep them intact, a homeowner needs to make sure that their boiler is receiving annual servicing to make sure it is working as intended.
