You have probably been told many times that you should service your boiler regularly. But what does a regular boiler service mean? Is it every month, quarterly, annually, or after several years? Read on to find out.
Annual boiler service
Your boiler should be serviced once every year.
An annual service is sufficient to keep your boiler in good condition. Additionally, for manufacturers to uphold your warranty, they need proof of yearly boiler servicing.
During the summer
Summer is a convenient time to service your boiler for the following reasons:
• The boiler is not in use, which makes it easy for engineers to notice problems in the heating system quickly. Is it not convenient to have people work on your boiler when you do not necessarily need it?
• Boiler technicians and heat engineers are less busy in summer as there is less demand for their services.
• You have a better chance of booking a boiler service appointment at a convenient time for you.
• You will have peace of mind knowing that your boiler will be working fine when you need it the most.
Therefore, you should book your annual boiler service in the summer months.
When moving to a new house
Another good time to service a boiler is when you’re moving into a new home. This is because you cannot be sure when the previous owner last scheduled a boiler service.
A boiler service at this point will also help fix any issues left by the previous owner. Additionally, the service technicians will tell you if the boiler needs replacing.
When it is functioning inefficiently
You do not have to wait until your boiler is due for its annual service to call boiler experts.
If you notice your boiler is working inefficiently, book a service immediately. A minor boiler problem could become a severe problem quickly, and it will be expensive to fix if ignored for too long.
Remember, a boiler that is not optimally functioning is costing you money as it has to work harder to achieve the results of a boiler that is in good condition.
