Why You Need to Get Your Boiler Serviced
Why you need to get your boiler serviced
Although it’s often overlooked and under appreciated, your boiler is probably the most important appliance in your property. Without it, your showers would be icy cold and your interior would soon feel like the Arctic.
The best way to avoid the inconvenience and expense of a boiler breakdown is to have your boiler serviced on a regular basis. The better you look after your boiler, the easier it will be to spot faults, make repairs and keep the appliance working perfectly.
Health and safety
Faulty boilers can be very dangerous. If your appliance hasn’t been installed properly, or if it’s been neglected for a long time, it could be releasing harmful gases into your home. These odourless and tasteless gasses can be very bad for your family’s health, so it’s important to ensure the appliance is working just as it should.
If you have your boiler serviced in Swaffham, or anywhere else in the UK, your engineer will check that no gasses are being released into your home and that the entire appliance is in full working order. If any faults are found, your engineer will be able to get the problem fixed, or arrange a replacement boiler, before it does any damage.
Although it may not feel like it at the time, servicing your boiler regularly will actually save you money. Fixing a fault before it becomes a serious problem is generally a lot easier than waiting for a boiler to break down and calling in the engineers.
A lot of the time, a qualified boiler engineer will be able to make the necessary boiler repairs there and then, ensuring your boiler keeps running smoothly for the foreseeable future.
Repairing a faulty boilers is also a lot cheaper than buying a replacement appliance. If you ignore a problem with your boiler, it can easily lead to a full breakdown and to the boiler becoming irreparable. Fixing the issue before it gets to this point can save you a lot to time and hassle.
When to service your boiler
The summer or early autumn is the best time to have your boiler serviced. Having your appliance looked at when the weather is still nice and warm will help to avoid a breakdown in the middle of winter. What’s more, if something is found to be wrong with the boiler, it’s a lot easier to do without the appliance for a few days in July than it is in January.
However, as any service is better than no service at all, it’s still a good idea to call the engineers in during the winter months if your appliance hasn’t been looked at for a while.
