Getting your boiler serviced may seem like an unnecessary expense, but in the long run, it can actually be cheaper and ensures your boiler lasts longer than if you didn’t get it checked.
Keeps you safe
There are several reasons why you should get your boiler serviced but protecting your loved ones from injury and accidents is unquestionably the most important. Regular boiler maintenance will help to keep it operating securely and safely, giving you a piece of mind. A malfunctioning boiler can be extremely deadly; in England and Wales, there are about 60 annual unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning deaths – which can be prevented if you have a licenced engineer who will check for leaks and other problems during your boiler service.
Detect issues early
If small issues are ignored, they might grow into larger and costly issues that could lead to you having to get the boiler replaced. You may save costly repairs down from being needed further down the road by making sure your boiler is functioning properly, and everything is working correctly. Any minor issues can be found and fixed by your engineer, helping to prevent future failures.
Reduce your energy costs
Due to the current rise in living costs, many of us are looking for ways in which we can reduce our bills. A great way to do this is by making sure your boiler is up to date, and in great working order, as this can begin to save you money over time. A boiler engineer will do a number of inspections during your service to ensure that your boiler is operating effectively and as efficiently as possible. As a result, you will eventually save money because an efficient boiler is less expensive to operate than one that is faulty. Your boiler’s efficiency can vary depending on its age and kind, so it is worthwhile seeking recommendations from a professional to see how you can further reduce your costs.
In order to stay within the terms of your home insurance, it is often required that you have your boiler services regularly. Additionally, you are often required to carry out a routine service to make sure your boiler is secure under many boiler warranties and business insurance policies. If you don’t, your insurance policy can be void. Most insurance policy requirements will be satisfied by an annual boiler service, but you should double-check with your insurance company to be sure, as this can be very costly if you were to have any incidents and you were not protected by your insurance company.
