Boiler & Heating Maintenance
Just as important as choosing the right boiler and heating system for your home, is ensuring that it remains well maintained and working at optimum levels. Although we are passionate about central heating, we appreciate that not everyone shares our enthusiasm when it comes to maintaining their heating system. Below are six key reasons why you should consider regular boiler and heating maintenance.
Keep Everyone Safe
A faulty boiler has the potential to be a safety risk in your property, which can endanger the lives of yourself and your loved ones. If your boiler or heating system has developed a gas leak, the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning is very real and result in death quickly and without waning. We always recommend that a carbon dioxide alarm is fitted to enhance safety.
Reduce Energy Bills
By arranging an annual boiler service you can ensure that your boiler working efficiently and not wasting valuable fuel. This will of course save you money on your monthly energy bills, whilst also reducing your carbon footprint.
Save On Repair Bills
Regular boiler servicing not only improves the reliability of your heating system, but also cuts down on future boiler repairs. By identifying minor issues early, we can resolve them before they become a more significant issue. This can avoid more costly future repairs and also increase your boiler’s lifespan.
Retain Your Boiler Guarantee
Many boiler manufacturers stipulate as part of their guarantee that the boiler must be serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer every twelve months. Failure to do so will invalidate your warranty, potentially leaving you with a costly bill if the boiler requires major repairs or even replacing.
Get Ready For The Cold Snap
Although boiler serving can be undertaken at any time of the year, it best to have the works carried out during the autumn months before the temperature really drops. By doing so you can ensure that you and your family stay warm through the winter months.
Stay Within The Law
If you are a landlord, whether you own commercial or residential property, you are legally required to have a gas safety certificate. This certificate is required to show that boilers, flues and pipework have been property maintained, whilst Gas Safety Records should kept for at least 2 years.
