Love DIY? Stay Clear of Your Boiler

Allen HartBoilers, Gas Safety, Servicing

We all like to save money, but there is a reason that boilers can only be installed by Gas Safe registered engineers. Boilers keep our homes warm but they can also be dangerous so here’s a short blog on why you should stay clear of boiler DIY for more than just safety reasons…

Keep your warranty intact

Most boilers come with a 5-10 year warranty and doing work yourself on your boiler will void that. New parts for a boiler can be expensive You can think of your warranty as your safety net should there be a serious problem.

While it might seem like a good idea right to take things into your own hands, getting a qualified engineer to do your maintenance will keep that warranty intact. 

Keep your boiler efficient

We can’t stress enough the importance of only doing work if you are Gas Safe registered. If you do have the knowledge to handle repairs, an important question to ask yourself is “do I know what will make my boiler work the best for me?”

In other words, “will it be as efficient as it could be?”

What’s best for your boiler greatly depends on you and your families needs. What’s right for a 2 bedroom is not going to be right for a 4 bedroom house and having extensive knowledge and experience that qualified heating engineers have can not only keep you safe but also save money on your bills. 

Keep your family safe

We don’t believe that cost should be a big enough reason to put yourself or anyone else at risk. While the bulk of a new boiler cost is in the install, it is also arguable the most important part. Saving money in the short term may put you or those you care about at risk in the long term.

It’s not just your family you have to think about. If you are a landlord then it’s up to you to make sure that any boilers that are in homes that you let out are serviced and safe. 

Don’t forget…

ANY boiler, regardless of type or size must be serviced every year. The reason for this is to make sure that your boiler is safe for your home and working as it should be, providing the right amount of heat for your home.
