How Often Should I Get My Boiler Serviced?

When it comes to a boiler, there’s very little that you have to do. They don’t require much maintenance, you don’t need to check on them often and they tend to work relatively well without any input from you. However, that’s not to say that you can leave a boiler for long periods of time without a professional check. You should have your boiler serviced at least once a year and leaving it any longer is not recommended.

Why is Boiler Servicing So Important?

Boilers should be serviced annually and they should be serviced by a professional, such as one of the experts here at Grand Union Plumbing & Heating. Though you may be tempted to take a look at the boiler yourself, you are unlikely to know what you are looking for. You probably won’t know whether or not a boiler is in good working condition, and whether or not it’s operating safely. When a professional services a boiler, they check everything from top to bottom. Not only will any faults be highlighted, but they will be fixed too. It’s always best to enlist the help of a Gas Safe registered engineer.

If you don’t have a boiler serviced, there’s no guarantee that it’s working correctly. This could mean that it’s leaking poisonous gases, which needs to be stopped immediately, or costing you too much money to run. When you have a boiler serviced, anything that could improve the running of the boiler can be put into place. This makes it safer to use and can reduce your energy bills. You want to be sure the boiler isn’t making your house unsafe.

It’s also important to remember that a lot of manufactures require an annual service on new boiler installations and they won’t validate the warranty if not. This means that failing to have a boiler service could leave you without protection should something go wrong, which can be costly. Don’t be put off by the cost of having your boiler serviced, as it’s money worth spending in the long run.
