Boiler Servicing

Boiler servicing and maintenance is critical to ensuring you don’t need emergency boiler repair.

When getting an annual boiler service, it’s easy to postpone and let your boiler continue to tick over to the following year. However, at Home Heating Systems, we know that life is hectic, and this can be something that is overlooked.
The problem with this is that whilst you might save yourself a boiler service fee, you could be setting yourself up for a much larger financial hit if your boiler stops working and a breakdown occurs. We’ve outlined below some important reasons for the importance of an annual boiler service.

Identify Potential Problems Early

One of the biggest advantages of an annual boiler service is that it gives you an opportunity to spot and fix any problems before they become a big issue. Although we tend to think of boilers as mainly a winter tool, our boiler gets used every day to make sure that we all have warm water for showers, washing dishes and other activities.
However, when winter hits, we use our boiler that much more – particularly to heat our homes. So, if there have been small problems, such as a condensate being partially blocked, this problem will likely come to a head and break down in winter. Yet, most issues can be picked up early and solved during a service, meaning your boiler will work brilliantly all through winter.

Prolong the Lifespan of Your Boiler

For most of us, we avoid getting our boiler serviced to save ourselves money. Yet, this is a false economy, as a yearly service (and any repairs you might need) will cost you far less than a new boiler. When you maintain your boiler, any issues are repaired long before they cause any lasting damage to that boiler.
This means for those who get an annual service; your boiler will potentially last you years longer than the same model of boiler that hasn’t been maintained. This will save you much more money in the long run.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

When you get your boiler serviced, it’s not just about making sure that all the parts of your boiler are clean and working well. Your heating engineer will also look to ensure that your boiler is working efficiently. This, over time, can help reduce your yearly energy costs, as an inefficient boiler can raise your bills. At a time when bills seem to be constantly increasing, any little bit of money saved is always useful.
Overall, getting your boiler serviced might feel like an unnecessary expense. However, this small yearly cost can save you a lot overall. Plus, it means your boiler is less likely to break down in the middle of winter – which can be a family’s worst nightmare.
