Totally worth it! Boilers are one of the most expensive and essential items in your home. It’s important to service your boiler regularly to keep it working safely all year round! Unfortunately, they are often treated as “out of sight, out of mind”. Yes, we know boilers provide us with hot water for our showers and keep are homes oh-so-cozy in winter, but once they’re installed and operating, they can be left alone to do their jobs – right? Well, your boilers will surely work but do require attention every now and then. Most people know that when you buy a new car, you need to book it in for its annual servicing. Boilers are not seen in the same light as cars…but they should be! It’s easy to overlook the importance of having gas boilers and appliances in your business service. With the pressures of day-to-day operations, this is often left until later–when you have more time or money. Here some smart reasons why you should give your boiler and appliances more attention. After all, the low cost of a maintenance call and the small amount of time it takes to arrange it can save you lots of headaches.
But First, Why Should I Service It Anyway?
Most of us don’t think about our boiler until there’s a problem. As long as the house is heated and there is hot water coming out of the shower, we are happy. But like any other mechanical device, your boiler will wear out over time. If you don’t have it serviced regularly, it could break down in the first cold spell and cost a small fortune to repair. Heating engineers across the country will be inundated with emergency calls, and you will probably have to wait much longer for your central heating and hot water to work again.
But if you service your boiler now, not only do you make sure it is working properly (which reduces the risk of failure when you turn the heat back on in the fall), but you can also choose when you want it repaired on your own terms. No panic or no waiting in the cold! You don’t have to worry about that unexpected bill or raid the Christmas fund.
How Will An Annual Boiler Servicing Save Me Some Bucks?
Just like with a car service, carrying out regular maintenance can help identify any faults or issues early on before creating a bigger problem. Routine maintenance on your boiler will be significantly cheaper than the cost of a major repair or replacing it. Boilers are one of the most expensive appliances in most homes and also the ones that can create the most upset when they go wrong.
Servicing Your Boiler Saves Your Life!
If your boiler is incorrectly installed, poorly maintained, or not regularly serviced, it can produce carbon monoxide gas. Gas leaks can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. It’s known as the ‘silent killer’ as carbon monoxide has no color, smell, or taste, so you won’t know there’s a problem until it’s too late. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, breathlessness (these can often be easily mistaken for other common sicknesses), collapsing, and a loss of consciousness. Annually servicing of your boiler can help ensure that it is combusting fuel efficiently and, most importantly, safely, which can significantly reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and prolong the lifespan of the boiler.
Keeps Your Warranty Valid
If your boiler has not been correctly maintained, your manufacturers’ guarantee/warranty will become invalid and stop you from receiving any benefits that come with it.
Cuts Repair Costs
Boilers and appliances that are not adequately maintained can develop faults. The cost of repairing those faults is often more than the price of getting a service.
