Often Boiler Servicing is overlooked. We are all so busy that it's incredibly easy to forget to book your boiler service or even remember that it needs one. Boiler servicing is so important and just like your car, your boiler needs servicing every year to ensure it continues to run both efficiently and safely.
Here we tell you why you should always remember to have your boiler serviced annually and how Harris Heating can help you to ensure you never miss another boiler service again....
1. Your engineer can identify problems and fix them
We rely on our boilers all year round for hot water, but we often don't notice problems until the winter when we rely on them for our heating too. If your boiler has issues which are not identified these will only get worse causing more major (and more expensive) problems further down the line. A regular service can identify those minor problems early and fix them before they become a major problem affecting the running of your boiler and potentially leaving you with no heating or hot water in the winter months!
2. It will save you money
Having your boiler serviced regularly can actually save you money on your energy bills. Depending on the type of boiler you have, make and model and its age, having your boiler serviced will improve its efficiency, meaning it will use less energy to run which in turn will lower your energy bills.
3. Replacing your boiler is much more expensive
A well-maintained boiler is much more likely to last longer than one that hasn't been serviced. If you don't want the expense of having to replace your boiler due to a major issue arising, servicing is a much cheaper way to prolong the life of your boiler.
4. It keeps you safe
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can occur from unsafe boilers. Regular servicing will help to keep the risk of this to a minimum, keeping you and your family safe. More than 200 people go to A & E with suspected Carbon Monoxide Poisoning every year so an efficient, regularly serviced boiler is crucial.
5. Your Warranty
If your boiler is still under warranty, not servicing it every 12 months can make it void. Always check the terms of your boiler warranty and if it requires an annual service, make sure you book this on time so that if your boiler does break down, you're not caught out by not being able to claim under the warranty!
