3 Reasons To Have Your Boiler Serviced Every Year

It’s easy to forgot how hard your boiler is working for you until there is a problem. Annual servicing not only keeps your boiler working efficiently but it also helps it run for longer. Here’s our top 4 reasons why you should make sure to get your boiler serviced every year…

Regular Services Save You Money

It may comes as a surprise, but most boilers don’t break from a huge issue. Instead, they tend to run into trouble from smaller issues that don’t get the attention they deserve.

Taking the time to get your boiler serviced every years means that a qualified heating engineer can identify potential issues before they become huge problems which will save you both money and help to keep your home safe.

It’s also important to make sure that you are getting the best deal on your heating bill so keeping an eye on how your boiler is performing is the best way to find out if you are really getting what you have paid for.

Regular Servicing Keeps You And Your Family Safe

Any appliance needs maintenance to make sure it’s working the way it should be, and your boiler is no different. One of the biggest factors as to why boilers need to be serviced annually is that they need to be safe.

According to uSwitch, carbon monoxide poisoning has claimed the lives of around 31 people in the UK over the last 3 years. It’s important to have a good grasp of common symptoms to look out. These include headaches, dizziness and a change in breathing.

One of the biggest dangers of carbon monoxide is that it cannot be seen by the naked eye as it is colourless and invisible. It is also odourless meaning that it cannot be detected by any of your normal senses. That’s why it’s important to have a regularly serviced boiler as well as a carbon monoxide detector in your home, just in case.

Regular Servicing Is Required by Law For Landlords

If you are living in a rented property then it is a legal requirement for your home to be serviced every year. A gas safe engineer must carry out the work as they are the only people that can issues CP12 Inspection Certificates.

This is good to know for homeowners that rent as it means that this has to be done for you at no cost. The responsibility is on your landlord but it is still important to make sure you know what you need to keep your home safe.
