Get Your Boiler Ready for Autumn and Winter
With such a lovely, warm Summer almost behind us, it’s getting to that time when you might want to fire up the boiler. Now, it’s been off (or working at a very low capacity heating water) for a rather long time, so you want to be sure that when the cold sets in, your boiler is up to the job!
Getting your boiler serviced each year is an absolute must, for a wide variety of reasons. Here’s what your boiler service does for you:
1. Keeps You and Your Family Safe
An annual boiler service keeps your boiler running safely. Any faults or problems can be detected before they become serious and fixed before you start using your boiler on a more heavy basis.
2. Gets You Ready Before You Need It
If you leave servicing your boiler until it starts to get cold, then you may suffer. Once that heavy usage kicks in and your boiler just isn’t up to it, you could spend a good amount of time with a cold house at the last point in the year that you need it (depending on issues and availability of parts). Having your boiler serviced now means that you can be safe in the knowledge that it should work come the colder months and not cause you any problems.
3. Saves You Money
As you use your boiler over the course of the year, its efficiency will reduce. Having your boiler serviced annually will ensure it is running as efficiently as possible, which, in turn will save you money on your gas bills. Additionally, keeping your current boiler performing as efficiently as possible and caring for it means it will last longer, therefore avoiding frequent boiler replacements.
4. Validates Your Warranty
Most boilers nowadays have an extensive warranty, so you are safe in the knowledge that if something goes wrong with it, it will be covered by the manufacturer. However, a clause in your warranty agreement will usually be that you have your boiler serviced each year. If you don’t you may void your warranty, which will incur avoidable expenses should anything need repairing.
5. For Landlords – It’s the Law!!
If you rent a property or even a room in your house, you are required by law to have an annual gas safety check on all appliances and this includes servicing your boiler. You have a duty of care to your tenants regarding this and you must produce a landlords gas safety certificate at any time, if asked.
So there you have it, our reasons why getting your boiler ready for autumn and winter by having a boiler service is a must. It’s not only a safety issue, but a money issue, and in these times, every little bit saved helps.
