Why do I need to get my boiler serviced?


Why Do I Need To Get My Boiler Serviced

Do I need to service my boiler? Is it worth it? These are very common questions that come to the minds of those when thinking of house maintenance. We believe it is necessary that you should know the importance of boiler servicing. It is important to have your boiler serviced annually. This will ensure it’s running efficiently and safely for the year ahead.

Here are some of the top reason you should get your boiler serviced:

1. Servicing your boiler keeps you and your home healthy and safe

The Department of Health and Social Care has reported that carbon monoxide poisoning sends 4,000 people to A&E each year. Regularly servicing your boiler is crucial because carbon monoxide, a colorless, tasteless, odorless, and non-irritating gas, cannot be easily detected. In summary, a damaged boiler can harm your health.

2. Servicing your boiler can help you save money

Servicing your boiler on a regular basis will ensure that the appliance is working efficiently which can help you to maximise your gas bills resulting in a reduced carbon footprint.  Most warranties are void if you do not service your boiler for more than 12 months. In this situation, if your boiler breaks down, you will need to cover any associated labor and materials costs.. If your boiler requires an annual service make sure to book one in time with us to save you from losing your money. We have the flexibility of providing appointments that suit you and with our online booking, you can book an appointment day or night.

3. It can help you pick up on issues before they escalate

As we may all agree, due to the UK’s temperate climate it is never ideal to have a faulty boiler. Having a faulty boiler can cause an inconvenience as this can result in you having to go without heating and hot water in your home. Therefore, it is important to always view boiler servicing as a necessity. Failure of components can result from not servicing your boiler, potentially putting the appliance under unnecessary strain.. By getting a regular boiler service, gas and heating engineers can pick up on common issues before they escalate into a bigger problem that could result in requiring a boiler replacement before one is due.

When we service boilers, we usually carry out a full strip-down of the main burner and clean the combustion chamber. We then check the emissions from the flue of the boiler to make sure it is running with the optimum efficiency and in accordance with the guidelines.

We prioritize ensuring the removal of the boiler cover, inspecting all parts, checking the pilot light, recording water and gas pressure, inspecting pipework for corrosion, and checking for any carbon monoxide leakage. All these checks as it is our priority to make sure the boiler is safe to use.

4. If you’re a Landlord, a landlord gas safety is not a boiler service. 

By law, all landlords in the United Kingdom must annually conduct gas safety checks on every gas appliance in their properties and obtain a landlord certificate. As part of certification, we are only obligated to conduct a combustion test and verify the proper functioning of safety features, distinguishing a boiler service and landlord gas safety inspection. We assert that landlords have a duty to ensure the boiler’s efficient operation and thus provide a discounted rate for combined boiler service and landlord gas safety inspections.
