So Why Get a Boiler Service?

Boilers are the overlooked work-horses of the household and are relied on every day to provide hot water and central heating. Such constant usage of course takes it’s toll on moving parts inside, and it’s for this reason that we only really pay them attention when they go wrong. There are two key reasons to get a regular boiler service which we’ve detailed below:

Safety:

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is known as the silent killer and is a very real threat with an unserviced boiler. The gas is odourless and causes fatalities in the UK every year. If you don’t service your boiler you run a very real risk of introducing this gas into your premesis.

Getting a regular boiler service will ensure your boiler is operating in a safe and secure manner, and give you the peace of mind that no CO is entering your premesis and putting you or your family in danger.

Saving money:

It’s a fact that a well serviced boiler will help save you money in the long run. Through constant usage, moving parts inside a boiler show signs of wear and tear and start to operate less efficiently. If you boiler is operating inefficiently, it’s likely it will be using using more fuel than necessary to create the same heat output.

This result is that your annual fuel bill will be significantly higher than it should be. Getting a regular boiler service helps keep your boiler running smoothly and using less fuel, and by comparing boiler service quotes you can save even more.

What is a Boiler Service?

We know the importance of them, but what exactly is involved in a boiler service? Essentially it is a series of checks and inspections carried out by a qualified boiler techinician to ensure your boiler is operating both safely and efficiently. Possibly the most important check is for the presence of CO (Carbon Monoxide) which will also involve confirming that your boiler installation is vented properly.

The boiler technician will also remove the casing of the boiler and check all the working parts inside, particularly the moving parts which will be more likely to suffer wear and tear. A further check will be to test the ignition and fuel supply, whilst also ensuring that fuel supply is cut off when the boiler isn’t in use. It’s also important that a boiler service isn’t confused with a ‘boiler check’, which is a far less comprehensive testing.

How Often Should You Get a Boiler Service?

Most boilers should receive an annual service, however there are some circumstances in which this can differ. If you’ve just had a new boiler installed, it may be that you don’t need a service for the first couple of years. On the opposite end of the scale, if you have an older boiler it may well be worth getting a service more often than every 12 months.

It’s always worth checking with the manufacturers instructions regarding service regularity. It might be a requirement of a manufacturers warrantee that a boiler is serviced regularly to keep it operating properly.
