Why you should book your boiler service?
Whether you tend to forget or ignore the reminders that your boilers need to be serviced, whatever the reason, here are some important reasons to book your boiler service today.
A key and very important reason for you to book your annual boiler service is that it helps to keep you and the people in your home safe. Your boiler is a fuel-burning appliance that can release carbon monoxide which is poisonous. The problem with carbon monoxide is that the gas is tasteless, colourless and odourless which means it is hard to detect its presence and makes people unaware when they are being poisoned.
Maintain your boiler guarantee or warranty
In order to maintain your manufacturer warranty or guarantee your boiler must be serviced every year. Failure to comply to this requirement could mean your warranty or guarantee is void and you could be liable for all repair costs in the event of a problem.
Stop bigger problems early
During a service, our Brazendale Heating & Maintenance gas or oil engineer will be able to identify and fix any underlying problems before it’s too late. No matter how small the issue with your boiler, ignoring it could lead to a more serious problem which could be much more costly to repair or lead to a safety issue.
Prolong the lifespan of your boiler
It is important to note that the age and model of your boiler will indicate its energy efficiency. But, as your boiler gets older, it will be less energy efficient year on year. Maintaining a healthy, efficient boiler by regularly servicing it could help make it last much longer. Remember the average lifespan of a boiler is between 10 and 15 years, but with careful maintenance and regular servicing, it can reach this age and beyond.
If you a landlord, it’s a legal requirement
If you’re a landlord, there is a legal requirement to get a gas safety certificate every year. It makes it really convenient to conduct the gas safety check at the same time as a boiler service. This means that you know your boiler is working well and poses minimal risk to your tenants’ health. With a boiler service, you are taking a proactive approach to help reduce the chance of faults or detecting issues early before they become a bigger problem in the long term. The small cost of a boiler service can help to save from a significant cost during a breakdown.
