Why do I need to get my Boiler Serviced?

Boiler servicing is one of those things that you could so easily overlook or even forget about. Nevertheless, it is essential to pick up on any potential problems prior to them becoming major issues. 
 
In this blog, we go over some of the key reasons why you should keep up with regular boiler checks. Having your boiler serviced often will ensure it’s running efficiently and also help to keep it running safely. A faulty boiler can be highly dangerous with the risk of non-fire-related carbon monoxide poisoning a major concern for homeowners. 
 
Keep your home safe 
Having your boiler serviced often will make sure it’s running efficiently and also help to keep it safe. A faulty boiler can be highly dangerous. During a boiler service, a Gas Safe registered engineer will look out for leaks and issues, giving you the total reassurance when it comes to protecting your family.
 
Pick up on problems before they get worse 
Smaller issues problems can become huge ones if left unattended. By making sure your boiler is running properly, you can save money on future repairs. Your engineer can detect and fix any minor problems to help avoid future malfunctions and costly repairs.
 
You can save yourself money on your energy bills
Servicing is, without doubt, another home expense. But it could save you money in the long-term too. Throughout your service, your engineer will carry out a host of checks to make sure your boiler is working properly. This will, in turn, save you money over time, as a more efficient boiler costs less to run. How efficient your boiler can vary on its age and the type you have.
 
If you’re a landlord, it is a legal requirement
When you service your boiler a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer has to, by law, check gas appliances and flues annually to ensure everything is safe and sound. The required checks include boilers, but they also cover other gas appliances such as stoves and fireplaces. If you’re a tenant it’s certainly good to note that landlords are not responsible for safety checks on gas appliances owned by you, or any flues that solely connect to your own gas appliances.
