5 Reasons You Should Service Your Boiler Annually

It’s common to put getting your boiler serviced low on your list of priorities and decide to do it at a later date. The fact is, a yearly service is necessary to maintain your boiler functioning effectively. Additionally, as we’ll explain in a moment, annual boiler maintenance is necessary for both legal and warranty reasons.

Reasons For Annual Boiler Service:

One of those things that are frequently neglected is boiler servicing, and far too many individuals fail to have their boilers inspected on a regular basis.

  1. By having your boiler serviced once a year, your engineer will be able to notice problems with it and fix them before they cause more significant (and expensive!) harm. No matter how minor the issue may be, the longer you ignore it, the worse it will get. You don’t want to let your boiler malfunction when you put on the warmth in November because you left it to its own devices all summer.
  2. As parts start to wear down, your boiler‘s efficiency will progressively decline over time. As a result, your boiler will need to operate with increasing effort to heat your house, consuming more energy and increasing your energy costs. Your heating specialist can do repairs to address any problems that are reducing your boiler‘s efficiency after performing a service to identify them. Additionally, services ensure that your boiler investment lasts as long as possible, extending the lifespan of your boilers by many years in comparison to models that are not maintained.
  3. Your boiler most likely came with a guarantee when you purchased it. Some of these warranties cover your boiler for up to ten years, providing you with good protection if something goes wrong with it during the first few years. However, you must get your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe licensed professional once a year to maintain the warranty’s validity. Without a service, your warranty will be null and invalid, and in the event that something goes wrong, you will be responsible for paying for repairs out of pocket.
  4. Your boiler will run smoothly if you perform routine inspections and maintenance, and since you’ll be able to address any problems immediately, your boiler will be less likely to malfunction down the road. Your money will be saved by avoiding the need to purchase a new boiler because a healthy, well-maintained boiler will usually survive longer than one that hasn’t been serviced.
  5. It’s important to have your boiler checked regularly because, according to the Department of Health, 4000 people visit A&E each year with carbon monoxide poisoning. Because the symptoms (headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapsing, and a loss of consciousness) are easily confused with those of other common illnesses, it’s important to have your boiler checked regularly. Your family’s safety can be ensured by having your boiler serviced, or it can alert you to the need for repairs before a broken boiler adversely compromises your health.
