At this time of year, the flowers are blossoming, trees getting bushy, grass getting greener and the BBQ on full heat for a good sunny afternoon get together. Spring and summer are great to enjoy the great weather (when we do get it in the UK!) but throughout these seasons it is a great time to think about getting your boiler serviced.
We’re sorry, we don’t want to make you think about the cold, wet winter months when Summer hasn’t even begun yet but making sure your boiler is safe and working as it should be is so important, especially when the temperature is rising now and we find ourselves barely using the central heating.
Getting the boiler serviced at this time of year or within the upcoming months is also cost-effective, you won’t pay as much for a professional to come out and service your boiler as it isn’t the peak season where the heating is in demand for use.
Why should you get your boiler serviced?
Not just for the fact getting it serviced before winter will save you money, having the boiler serviced and making sure it is working properly will help keep the costs down on heating bills as you know your boiler is working efficiently and will be reliable when it is in use.
2) Guarantee & Warranty
By getting your boiler serviced regularly you will still be complying with boiler regulations; if you aren’t getting an annual service this could potentially void your warranty or guarantee.
Do you know how many people die every year due to carbon monoxide poisoning due to a faulty boiler? It is at least 50, in our eyes this is 50 too many when these types of causes of death can be avoided by regular services. We would also recommend having a carbon monoxide detector within your home so you can prevent any fatalities.
4) Decreased Number of Repairs
If you aren’t getting your boiler serviced on a yearly basis how do you know if it is working properly and all of the parts within the system are in a good working condition? Exactly, you don’t. With a regular service you will have the peace of mind that everything is working as it should be and will minimise the number of repairs that could potentially be required if left without servicing.
Not getting your boiler isn’t worth the risk, it’s not time consuming, it’s not very expensive and it could be the reason you save your own or someone else's life within a property.
This summer while you are sitting enjoying the sunshine and BBQ looking for the perfect summer playlist why not hold on the music for 5 minute to book in your boiler service, that is really all it will take when you’ve found a reputable professional to service your boiler before winter.
