It can be frustrating when your boiler is out of action or faulty, causing disruption to your home. When arranging a professional boiler repair, there may be some things you can do at home to prepare for the visit and ensure the boiler engineer can fix or maintain your boiler as efficiently as possible.
Clear the area
Whether your boiler is in a bedroom or in the kitchen, you can help get your boiler ready by removing all items around the boiler. Making sure the engineer can easily access your boiler will mean less faff and a quicker completed job. It’s especially important to remove any valuable items from the area, just to keep your precious belongings safe away from the work and any elbows!
Keep your boiler off
If you can, turn your boiler off before the expected visit time from the engineer. Typically, the boiler needs to be off for the engineer to conduct a thorough investigation into any problems. So being prepared and turning the boiler off in advance will ensure it has cooled down before their arrival and can get on with the task with as minimal disruption as possible.
Annual boiler services
To try and catch a boiler before it breaks down, it’s worth having annual boiler services. With a boiler service, your boiler engineer will be able to diagnose faults in advance of breakdown, and will save you money for both bills and boiler company charges – repairs often cost more than preventative measures!
