One of the things which might jump to mind when you consider regular maintenance of your home is getting your boiler serviced. The key reason for this is simple – SAFETY, and should be at the forefront of every homeowners priorities to significantly reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Besides the vital issue of safety, there are many more reasons to get your boiler serviced regularly to avoid future problems.
Regular servicing of your boiler reduces the chances of you having to replace your boiler as often as it will be kept in good working order and an optimal condition over a longer period of time. Servicing could uncover minor defects which can be repaired immediately whilst avoiding the cost of a complete replacement.
A boiler which is running at optimal efficiency will save money on your gas bills in the long run by burning the correct amount of fuel needed to keep your heating running smoothly and also reduce the risk of your heating and water temperatures being too hot, too cold or unreliable.
If you are renting out your home as a landlord, it is a legal requirement that you have the boiler in your property serviced by a professional every twelve months and respond to issues you have been notified about within a ‘reasonable timeframe’ or within 24 hours in an emergency situation.
