Does a boiler need an annual service? We run through boiler services and some frequently asked questions for you here.
Although a boiler service may seem like an unnecessary extra cost each year, it really is an important measure to ensure that your boiler is working safely and efficiently to increase the lifespan of your boiler, in turn saving you money in the long run.
By having your boiler serviced, any small issues can be identified and fixed, before they turn into a big expensive problem that could potentially put you or your family at risk, such as Carbon Monoxide poisoning. It is also worth noting that many boiler warranties become invalid unless you can prove you have had an annual boiler service.
Contrary to common misconception, the best time to have your boiler serviced is actually during the summer months as once winter approaches, so do the boiler breakdowns.
Heating engineers across the country will be fully booked by callouts and you will likely have to wait much longer to get your heating and hot water up and running again ,whereas in summertime, you can schedule your service for when is best for you and you won’t be waiting in the cold.
