Why Should You Get Your Boiler Serviced Regularly? November 20, 2017 Boilers are like people; it’s important they are looked after. If they aren’t looked after, it’s a possibility that they could breakdown at the worst possible time – like in the winter when it’s freezing cold, for instance. That’s why we’ve compiled a list for all of our customers across Manningtree and the surrounding areas to outline why it’s important that you get your boiler regularly serviced. Why wait and risk it? Get it serviced.Save timeIf you have your boiler serviced at least once a year, it’s likely that you’ll be able to spot problems early on and mitigate them before they become expensive problems. It’s easy to forget that you need your boiler all year round and not just in the winter, and there aren’t many worse ways than starting your day off than a freezing cold shower! Highlight the problem early on; get it serviced by a qualified heating engineer and save further potential downtime in the future.Save moneyBy ensuring that your boiler is regularly serviced, you can guarantee that you’ll save money in the long term. Boilers can be checked with regards to their optimum running efficiency – and boilers that aren’t running as efficiently as they should be are costing you money. Not to mention, should your boiler become irreparable, you’ll have to purchase and have a new one installed, which is never a cheap acquisition. Save complicationsIf you’re a landlord, it is UK law to ensure that an annual gas safety check is carried out on each gas appliance in the household, as it is your responsibility to ensure that your tenants are safe. Hence, save the complication and get your boiler serviced before you’re caught out! Save the guaranteeMost manufacturers offer or provide extended guarantees with their boilers, but most also state that their product must be serviced at least once a year to ensure that the guarantee stays intact. If you are unable to provide evidence that your boiler has been serviced and it breaks down, you will likely be forced to purchase a new one. Save yourselfPerhaps the most important reason to have your boiler serviced - it’s important to save yourself. In 2013, the Department of Health found that over 4,000 people were treated for poisoning by carbon monoxide, where most of these incidences came from faulty central heating systems. Our qualified heating engineers can check to make sure that there are no leaks or weak points to avoid the worst.Do you live in Manningtree or the surrounding area, including areas such as Colchester and Harwich?
