Safety An annual boiler service allows the heating engineer to spot potential problems, such as a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is dangerous and odourless. It can often lead to death if it is not detected on time. Even if you have already had your boiler serviced and are concerned about your boiler, please contact a Gas Safe registered engineer! Keep your heating bills low When a boiler gets older, it loses efficiency. This means it has to use more fuel to heat your home, which could cost you more money. A yearly service will ensure that all of the boiler parts are in good working order and that the system will operate at a greater level of efficiency for longer. Warranty When you get a new boiler installed, it often comes with a manufacturer's guarantee of one to fifteen years. This means that any issues that arise during that period will be repaired free of charge. You should be aware that this warranty is only valid if you have the boiler serviced by a Gas Safe engineer once a year. Prevent Breakdowns It can be tempting to put off getting your boiler serviced in the hopes of saving money. However, in the long run, a boiler service will actually help you save money, this is by lowering your energy bills and preventing a boiler breakdown. Want to know more?
