Look at information below to determine exactly why regular boiler servicing is critical.
Why Is Annual Boiler Servicing Important?
There are three key reasons for booking an annual boiler service for your boiler:
Safety: If your boiler isn’t combusting correctly it could be giving off deadly carbon monoxide gases. You cannot taste, smell or see carbon monoxide, so if your boiler is giving out this dangerous gas, you may not realise until it’s too late. During your service the engineer will check your boiler for harmful leaks, as well as spotting and repairing any prospective issues before they turned into a problem.
Efficiency: Boiler efficiency decreases as time passes, as the boiler ages and components become plugged with debris. During your annual boiler service, the engineer will service all of the boiler’s parts, clean out your system and replace any broken components. This will make your boiler more efficient which will help to cut your heating bills, as an inefficient boiler uses more fuel.
Reliability: Your boiler, like all mechanical systems, it is susceptible to wear and tear with time. When it is running at full capacity through the winter season, there is more strain placed on the parts in the boiler. Because of this, it is more likely to breakdown during winter, leaving you and your loved ones in the cold. A trained engineer can help protect against these breakdowns, by making sure that your boiler is in tip-top condition month in month out.
