We all rely on our boilers to provide heat and hot water on a daily basis, so it’s vital that they are reliable and efficient. Like any other equipment, we need to have our boilers regularly checked and tested to make sure they work effectively and efficiently on an ongoing basis. Scheduling an annual boiler review will help to spot any issues, minimise disruption, ensure that you continue to have heat and hot water whenever you need it and to keep energy bills as low as possible.
How a boiler service can help
In the same way that a car should be regularly serviced, carrying out regular boiler checks will ensure any potential problems are highlighted at the earliest opportunity. This means that worn-out parts can be replaced before the boiler stops working properly or completely breaks down rather than fixing the problem after your hot water and heat provision is interrupted. Spotting problems early can minimise disruption and may save you money if they are dealt with by a qualified engineer before any further damage is done.
As well as exposing any defects, a regular boiler service will ensure your boiler is working as efficiently as possible. An inefficient boiler can really affect the price of your energy bills, so it’s important you know your boiler is working to full capacity. Your boiler engineer will test and inspect all of the components to ensure maximum efficiency is achieved, potentially helping to reduce your energy bills at the same time.
Safe to use
Perhaps most importantly, a boiler service will ensure your boiler is safe. If it has been installed incorrectly or hasn’t been maintained well, your boiler might be emitting hazardous carbon monoxide gas. The usual symptoms include example nausea, dizziness, headaches and breathlessness, but in extreme cases carbon monoxide poisoning can cause unconsciousness and even death. As the symptoms can be difficult to identify, it’s important a trained engineer keeps an eye on your boiler to ensure that it is working safely. It is also worth asking your engineer to install a carbon monoxide alarm, which will alert you if there is any danger.
