A broken or faulty boiler may seem like a minor issue, but can actually cause a number of problems in the home. From lack of hot water, to a cold house from no central heating, if your boiler breaks down, you’ll quickly realise how important it is to your home. Homeowners should avoid the increased likelihood of a broken boiler by having regular servicing carried out.
How often should you service your boiler?
You should schedule to have your boiler serviced a minimum of once a year as an annual service will help keep your boiler working efficiently. When arranging servicing, think about when is best time for it to be carried. If a fault is discovered during the maintenance checks, then you may find yourself without heating or hot water while it is being repaired or replaced.
If you can, try to arrange your boiler servicing to be carried out during the summer or autumn months, as this can help you avoid being left without heating during the cold winter.
Why you should get your boiler serviced annually
Having your boiler regularly serviced will mean that it continues to work at maximum efficiency, which saves you money in the long run. During the servicing, checks will be carried out on parts to make sure that they are in good working condition. These general maintenance checks can increase the lifespan of your boiler, as well as help lower the costs of your energy bills.
Regular maintenance also reduced the likelihood of your boiler breaking down, as minor faults can be discovered and fixed early, before they evolve into a more serious issue.
