Boiler servicing benefits
Gas bill savings with a boiler service
This is the most worthwhile benefit of a regular boiler service, that’s why we’ve put it at the top of our list. If during the inspection it’s found that the boiler is wasting fuel, a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer can make the necessary changes and ensure that all of the fuel is being routed to the correct place and isn’t being wasted. If it is being wasted, it’s inexcusably increasing the price of your energy bills. Get a boiler service and save money further on down the line.
Reduce boiler downtime
As mentioned above, all components of the boiler are checked to ensure that they are operating to a safe and efficient standard. If it’s found that there is a slight issue with the boiler, this can be removed before the issue worsens and you’re left with a broken boiler. This means you can avoid the costs of a boiler repair or an even costlier boiler replacement.
Save the guarantee with a boiler service
Most boiler manufacturers offer extended guarantees with their boilers, but almost all state that the boiler must be serviced at least once a year to ensure that you are covered. The benefit? Have complete peace of mind that your boiler is covered for all parts and labour for years to come.
Boiler Safety with a boiler service
In 2013, the UK Department of Health found that there were over 4,000 instances where people were treated for carbon monoxide poisoning, where most of these instances came as a result of a faulty central heating system/boiler. Get your boiler serviced and ensure the safety of your home.
