It can be easy to overlook the need for boiler servicing and to forget to have your boiler serviced. Many people are unaware of the purpose of a yearly boiler service. forgetting to book this service is not the best idea, especially before the winter season.

There are actually multiple valuable reasons why all industry professionals highly recommend an annual boiler service.

An annual servicing means any problems can be nipped in the bud

Boiler repairs can be expensive. Annual boiler servicing allows any problems to be caught early on.

Remember, even during the Summer your boiler is likely in use, to provide hot water for showering.

Getting your boiler serviced annually allows your engineer  to deal with any problems before they escalate. Even if it seems like a minor issue now,  ignoring it will only cause the issue to  worsen.

As boilers need to work harder in the Winter to keep us warm, it is sensible to get your boiler serviced at the end of Summer. This will ensure that any potential problems are diagnosed and fixed before they cause your boiler to break, leaving you in the cold.

Getting your boiler serviced every year is much more cost effective than replacing it 

This may sound obvious, but many people avoid professional boiler services because of the cost.

However, getting annual servicing can prevent you from needing a boiler replacement, which would be far more costly than your annual service. Therefore, servicing your boiler is much more cost effective in the long term.

You may even be surprised at just how affordable servicing your boiler is, especially when compared to the installation of an entire new boiler. A healthy boiler will last much longer than one that hasn’t been serviced.

You’ll save money on energy bills

Here’s another reason why annual boiler servicing can actually save you more money than it costs in the long run.

Your engineer will check that your boiler is running as efficiently as possible, during the service. Any issues with efficiency can be rectified to ensure that your boiler isn’t using more energy than it needs to run.

This means your energy bills will be lower, as heating a home with an inefficient boiler can be extremely costly in the long term.

Annual boiler servicing keeps your household safe 

Boilers which are faulty or leaking can be extremely dangerous. Each year, thousands of people in the UK are admitted to A&E due to carbon monoxide poisoning resulting from a leaky boiler. During a boiler service, a certified engineer will check and fix any leaks to give you peace of mind.
