Leicester Plumbing - Boiler Service

How Often Should I Get My Boiler Serviced?

It is extremely important to look after your boiler. It powers both your central heating and your hot water. Therefore, when it breaks down you can be sure frustration and stress will follow. Having a regular boiler service will keep it running safely and efficiently. Meaning you having no hot water or central heating will never be an issue.

Safety

The number one priority with boilers is safety. With gas boilers there is always the danger of a gas leak. It’s extremely rare but wear and tear may increase the likelihood of a leak. If there is a leak, the tiniest spark or flame could cause an explosion. Resulting in serious damage to your home, serious injury or death.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless and highly dangerous gas. If a boiler is in poor condition, this can cause carbon monoxide to leak into the living space. Given that it is odorless and colorless the only way to detect it is by using a carbon monoxide detector. We highly recommend that every home has one of these. In the event that you don’t, and there is carbon monoxide leaking. This will cause poisoning and death.

Another safety issue with boilers is the high temperatures of the water. Your boiler is full of water up to 70 °C. If this water leaks and you come into contact with it, it could cause serious harm. Even a cold water leak can cause extensive water damage to your home.

When you take these points into consideration, it really highlights the safety hazards. Consequently a boiler service needs to be a priority.

Efficiency

When your boiler is not working at full efficiency. You can be sure it is costing you money. And who wants to speed even more money on their heating bill? I know we don’t!

A regular boiler service will improve the performance of your boiler meaning you will not have to turn it on for longer to maintain the right temperature in your home. Saving money and reducing your carbon footprint.

Warranty

It surprises me how many people do not consider this point. But with your boiler you will have a warranty. This could be anything up to 10 years. If your boiler breaks down, the warranty has you covered. But, and this is an important but. It will be stipulated in the warranty that you must regularly service your boiler. If not and it breaks down. Then you will not be covered. Ouch!

The moral of the story is. You should regularly have your boiler serviced. It will save you money in the long run and help keep you and your family safe. Boiler servicing is simple and can take as little as 20 minutes and we recommend you have it serviced once every 12 months.
