During the summer, when the sun is shining (hopefully) we don’t tend to think a lot about our boilers. After all, heating isn’t something we need in the warmer months so it isn’t something we concentrate efforts on. Yet there is a case that summer is the perfect time to have your boiler serviced for a number of reasons.
Service when you don’t need it
It may seem strange to service something when you don’t need it, but that can be precisely why summer is the best time for a service. How many times have you turned on your heating system in late autumn and found there’s a funny noise or a leak has developed, maybe the system just isn’t working at all? By having the work done when you don’t need the heating system, you can avoid winter breakdowns and be ready for the time of the year when you need the system the most.
Easier to make a booking
Because it is the off-season for boiler maintenance, this also means it is easier to make a booking with the company of your choice. You can often get the ideal time and date to fit in with your working life rather than having to take a day off work for the service or have someone stay at the property all day. Because heating engineers have more availability in summer, you get the best booking slot available.
Plenty of time to deal with problems
In many cases, boiler servicing will be a straight forward operation that involves checking all the parts and ensuring everything is working properly. But there are some cases where a service reveals a potential problem and when you do this during the summer, you have plenty of time to do the repairs before you need to use the boiler regularly.
At the worst case, if you need a boiler replacement, you have a bit of time to get organise the job. You can have a chat with a boiler installation expert to find the right boiler for your home and have plenty of time to organise financing or cash for the work. You can then get it booked in, again at a good time because the engineer’s workload is still relatively light and ensures the work is done well before the weather turns cold.
Avoid winter emergencies
Summer is a time to enjoy the warm weather but is also a time to prepare for the coming colder months. By having your boiler serviced before or early into summer, you can be certain you are ready for whatever the weather throws at you and your home will remain warm and comfortable.
