Boilers are the beating hearts of our home. They not only provide us with hot water, but essential heating too which offers the comfort and warmth we crave. Throughout the past year, we have used our boiler more than ever as we’ve been spending more time indoors.
It’s important to take regular care of your boiler, as it’s a vital part of your everyday life. The best way to give your boiler the care it needs is to conduct an annual boiler service.
Keeps You Safe
One of the most important reasons for a boiler service is that it helps to keep you safe. Your boiler is a fuel-burning appliance that can release carbon monoxide which is poisonous. This gas is tasteless, colourless and odourless which means it is hard to detect its presence and makes people unaware when they are being poisoned.
Servicing your boiler will highlight any need for repairs before a broken boiler causes any serious damage to your health.
Detects Faults Early
There’s nothing worse than turning your heating or hot water to find it is not functioning. During a service, your gas engineer will be able to identify and fix any underlying problems before it’s too late. Ignoring any issues could lead to a more serious problem which could be much more costly to repair or lead to a safety issue.
Increase You Boiler’s Lifespan
The age and model of your boiler will determine how energy efficient it is; as your boiler gets older, it inevitably becomes less efficient. Maintaining a healthy, efficient boiler by regularly servicing it could help make it last much longer.
The average lifespan of a boiler is between 10 and 15 years, but with careful maintenance and regular servicing, it can reach this age and beyond.
What Happens During a Boiler Service?
During an annual boiler service, various tests, checks and necessary cleaning is carried out to make sure that your boiler is functioning to its best possible standard. It must be a Gas Safe registered engineer who conducts the boiler service, during which, they will be able to identify any faults, gas or water leaks, and ultimately make sure the boiler is running safely and efficiently.
