Safety reasons for getting your boiler serviced
There are several reasons why you should get your boiler serviced, but protecting your loved ones from injury is the most crucial. Regular boiler maintenance will help to keep it operating securely. A boiler that is faulty might be quite dangerous. A certified engineer will check for leaks and other problems during your boiler service, providing you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family is safe.
Preventing future issues with your boiler
If small issues are ignored, they might grow into larger ones. You may save costly repairs down the road by making sure your boiler is functioning properly. Any minor issues can be found and fixed by your engineer, helping to prevent future failures that might be expensive
Save money on your energy bills
Of course, boiler servicing could be seen as yet another household expense. However, it can end up saving you money over time. Your engineer will do a number of inspections during your service to ensure that your boiler is operating effectively. As a result, you will eventually save money because an efficient boiler is less expensive to operate. Your boiler’s age and type will also determine how effective it is. Your boiler service technician could also be able to give you advice on how to use your boiler more effectively, which will help you save money on your energy costs.
It can be an insurance requirement
You’re usually required to carry out a routine service to make sure your boiler is secure under many boiler warranties and business or personal insurance policies. If you don’t, your insurance policy can be void. Most insurance policy requirements will be satisfied by an annual boiler service, but you should double-check with your insurance company to be sure. In order to avoid being surprised if something goes wrong with your boiler while it is still under warranty, it is worth reading the small print to be sure you are complying with the requirements.
If your home is rented or if you are a landlord
An annual boiler service is required by law if you are a landlord. Gas appliances and flues must be inspected annually to ensure their safety by a competent Gas Safe accredited engineer. Boilers are covered by the necessary inspection, along with other gas equipment like stoves and fireplaces.
What does a boiler service entail?
The engineer will examine your boiler and its controls, verify that the gas pressure is operating properly, test the flue, and look for leaks, damage, or corrosion during your boiler service appointment. A boiler service should be finished in about an hour. When an engineer does maintenance on a gas boiler, they also check that the boiler is emitting the proper amount of gas and is not emitting any dangerous gases, such as carbon monoxide. Along with the results, you’ll receive a checklist of everything that was examined for your records.
When should I have my boiler serviced?
The optimum time to schedule your servicing is in the summer. Not only will you be prepared for the winter, when you’ll need your boiler the most, but experts are typically less busy in the summer. When you decide to have your boiler serviced, be sure to write down the date and set a reminder for yourself to schedule the next appointment. Moreover, always use a registered engineer.
