Why you should service your boiler annually

You could catch boiler problems sooner rather than later.

It’s easy to forget that you don’t only use your boiler during Winter. You use hot water every day, so everyday your boiler could be running into issues - you might just notice them more when Winter rolls around.

Having your boiler serviced annually means that your engineer will be able to identify any problems with your boiler and address them before they do any major (and costly!) damage. Problems with your boiler, no matter how small they may be, will only get worse the longer you ignore them. You don’t want to leave your boiler to its own devices all summer and let it break down when you turn the heating on in November.

It's cheaper than replacement.

It’s easy to forget that you don’t only use your boiler during Winter. You use hot water every day, so everyday your boiler could be running into issues - you might just notice them more when Winter rolls around.

Regular checks and maintenance will keep your boiler running properly, and because you’ll be able to fix any issues right away, your boiler will be less likely to break down later. A healthy and well-maintained boiler will most likely last longer than a boiler that hasn’t been serviced, therefore saving you money on needing to buy a new boiler.

Helps lowering your energy bills

An argument against servicing your boiler is that it costs money - and people often think that it’ll be a waste; however, this isn’t typically the case.

As part of your servicing, your engineer will carry out all necessary checks to ensure that your boiler is running efficiently, which can save you money over time. Of course, the model of boiler you have, and how old it is, will determine just how energy efficient it can be, but improving your boiler’s efficiency will mean that it’ll use less energy to run, and will subsequently keep your energy bills low.

Maintain your Warranty

If your boiler is under guarantee, it’s common that this will only apply if you have your boiler serviced on an annual basis.

If you don’t service your boiler for more than 12 months, this may void your warranty, so if it does break down, you won’t be able to claim the money for repairs. Be sure to check the conditions of the warranty on your boiler, and if it requires an annual service, make sure you book one in on time - you don’t want to be caught out.

Keeping your family safe

Not only will servicing your boiler ensure that it’s running efficiently, it’ll also ensure that it’s running safely.

According to the Department of Health, 4000 people go to A&E each year with carbon monoxide poisoning, and because the symptoms (headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapsing and a loss of consciousness) can easily be assumed to be due to other common illnesses, it’s crucial that you have your boiler checked on a regular basis. Servicing your boiler can give you peace of mind that your family are safe - or it’ll let you know that you need to carry out repairs before a faulty boiler seriously affects your health.
