The cold winter months are over by now. Did you thank your boiler for the good work it did? If your boiler has never let you down, it means that you regularly service it. That’s good! Keep it that way, because an annual maintenance of the boiler has many advantages.
Why do you need to maintain the boiler regularly?
Save money on boiler repairs
By maintaining your boiler annually, you can improve the reliability of your heating system, minimize future boiler repairs and extend the life of your boiler. Regular checks and maintenance can detect small problems which, if not solved, can cause bigger problems.
Keep energy costs low
If you look beyond the safety factor, another big advantage of regular boiler maintenance is that it can help you keep your energy bill low. Over time and with regular use, rust can gradually build up on the boiler’s internal components and affect performance. Regular maintenance can prevent this rust from accumulating, allowing your boiler to operate more efficiently and reduce fuel consumption.
Defective boilers can cause fires, explosions and toxic gas leaks – all fatal to you and your family. The plumber will thoroughly check for broken or weak parts and replace them where necessary to keep your family and property safe for the coming year.
Reduced risk of boiler failure
Boiler checks can detect problems while they are still small and easy to repair, before they become a little more serious. This way you know you can rely on your boiler the next year and the risk of unexpected malfunctions is reduced to a minimum.
Maintenance is cheaper than buying a new boiler
Regular maintenance and checks of your boiler can detect if something is wrong or prevent problems from getting worse. When discovering whether a malfunction needs to be remedied, a qualified engineer can perform the work professionally to prevent future malfunctions. A boiler that is regularly maintained will probably last much longer than a boiler that has not been maintained, saving you money when replacing it with a new boiler. Buying a new boiler is expensive.
Retain the warranty
Guarantees are a lifesaver when it comes to replacing parts and whole appliances. But there are also some rules you have to follow. If your boiler is under warranty, this will most likely only apply if you have your boiler serviced annually. But what happens if you don’t? Your warranty is void. This means that if it is defective, you cannot claim the money for repair.
Have you serviced your boiler in the last 12 months?
