Why Servicing Your Boiler Is Important [2022]

An annual boiler service ensures that your boiler system operates safely and effectively. An engineer will run a few inspections on your central heating system during a boiler service. But, why should you even get your boiler serviced? 

We've put up this guide to help you understand why it is important that your boiler gets serviced.

Why is it important to get your boiler serviced?

Here are a few reasons why you should service your boiler every year:

1. Ensures Safety

A boiler service allows heating engineers to spot any potential problems, such as a carbon monoxide leak or broken components inside the boiler. If you have not serviced your boiler yet and are worried that your boiler is not working properly, you should get in touch with a Gas Safe registered engineer as soon as possible. 

2. Keeps Your Heating Bills Low

When a boiler gets older, it loses efficiency. When it starts to lose efficiency, it means it starts to use more fuel to heat your home, which ends up costing you more money when it comes to your heating bills. A yearly boiler service will ensure that all of the components are in good working order and that the system will operate at a greater level of efficiency for longer.

3. Prevents Breakdowns

Many people often put off getting their boiler serviced because they think it helps them save money. However, in the long run, getting your boiler serviced will help you save money because not only does it lower your energy bills but it also helps detect potential issues before a costly breakdown occurs. 

4. Maintains Warranty

Many new boilers often come with a manufacturer's warranty of 1 - 15 years, which indicates that any issues that arise during that period will be serviced for free. This warranty, however, is only valid if you have the boiler serviced annually by a Gas Safe engineer.
