Why you should get an annual boiler service

Having a regular boiler service can go a long way in keeping your home life running smoothly and avoiding unnecessary disturbances to your daily routine.

A well-functioning boiler is an integral part of your home, providing a warm, comfortable home and hot water. So it is essential to look after it properly. The best way to take care of your boiler is by getting it regularly serviced.

Did you know that an annual boiler service only takes around half an hour?

Why should you book an annual boiler service?

Peace of mind

One of the most important reasons for a boiler service is that it helps to keep you and the people in your home safe.

A full inspection will give you peace of mind when it comes to your boiler. Your gas servicer will check all of the key components for signs of damage and wear and tear, as well as test for gases.

Servicing your boiler can highlight any need for repairs before a broken boiler causes any serious damage to your health.

Safeguard your warranty

Your boiler warranty has some very important small print: you need to have your boiler serviced annually to keep it valid.

During your warranty, which could be up to 10 years, manufacturers require you to have an annual service to keep it valid. If you do not have a service once every 12 months then your warranty could be void. If a problem occurs, you’re likely to be liable to pay the full repair costs involved. This is a standard stipulation across the whole boiler industry and is there to promote safety and efficiency.

Boilers that aren’t regularly serviced can fall outside the terms and conditions of the manufacturer’s guarantee. Check yours and make sure you book your boiler service to keep it working efficiently.

Catch faults early

A boiler that is serviced regularly throws up any potential issues before it becomes a real problem.

Chances are, if you’re not a trained gas engineer, you won’t know about a problem with your boiler until you come to turn it on and it won’t ignite. During a service, your gas engineer will be able to identify and fix any underlying problems before it’s too late. No matter how small the issue with your boiler, ignoring it could lead to a more serious problem which could be much more costly to repair or lead to a safety issue.

Keeping your boiler serviced annually makes sure it is working properly and using fuel safely. Ensure you book in an appointment; it could prevent a fatal accident.

Save the inconvenience, time, money and hassle of dealing with a boiler problem.

Prolong your boiler lifespan

Remember, boilers can be costly to replace so look after yours to prevent unnecessary expense. While new boilers are more efficient than ever before, it is important to keep them this way.  A boiler that isn’t working to full efficiency is sure to be costing you money on your fuel bill. By regularly servicing your boiler once a year, you will keep it in good shape for far longer.

Legal requirement for landlords

If you are a landlord, remember you need a CP12 gas safety certificate so you must be confident your boilers are safe.  It is of paramount importance for you to get your boilers regularly serviced and it is relatively cheap to do so.

Your certificate is a legal requirement and without it, you could end up with a hefty fine (far more than booking in for annual boiler servicing!)

Your heating engineer will deal with all your small issues before they become problematic, keep your warranty valid and give you a nice, warm and toasty home when you need it most!
