The top reasons to service your boiler this winter

During this cold season, the last thing you want is the cost of replacing a broken boiler, so why put off an annual service?

Just like a car, your boiler requires regular checks and maintenance to keep it in good working condition. In this blog post, we will be exploring the benefits and reasons for servicing your boiler.

Keep your family safe

Neglecting your boiler can have detrimental effects on your health, and that doesn’t just mean getting a cold. When your boiler starts to malfunction, it can cause a gas leak, which can be dangerous and result in carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be deadly. If you smell a strong metallic odour coming from your boiler, there is a gas leak, do not activate any electricity, leave the house, and urgently contact your servicing company. For your peace of mind, and to keep your family safe, get a professional to service your boiler at least once a year.

Reduce energy bills

Servicing your boiler increases its reliability and efficiency, which means it will heat your house using less energy and fuel and is therefore less likely to break down. This will help increase its longevity and prevent fuel wastage. You will save more money and also help conserve the environment by having an efficient boiler which can reduce your carbon footprint.

Meet the requirements of your boiler warranty

According to most boiler warranties, you are required to service your boiler at least once every year. Failure to do this could render your guarantee null and void. Keeping up with the servicing maintains the validity of your warranty, and this will save you a lot of money, if or when your boiler breaks down. Winter is the perfect time to get your boiler serviced since there will be more pressure on the system as you will be using it more.

Save money on expensive boiler repairs

As mentioned earlier, regular servicing increases the efficiency and longevity of your boiler. Your heating and plumbing specialist will notice any minor problems and fix them before they worsen. The cost of servicing your boiler every year is lower than what it would cost you to repair or replace parts of the boiler. As they say, prevention is better than cure.

Keep warm during winter

The weather is getting colder, and there is no worse feeling than dealing with a malfunctioning boiler in winter. As you prepare to make your home warm and cosy, don’t forget to keep your boiler in good working condition.
