You can overlook a boiler service or easily forget. A lot of people will admit they fail to get their boiler serviced on a regular basis. There are many reasons why you should get a boiler service, so here at WRP, we thought we would give you our top five.
1. Cheaper than a replacement boiler
Regular checks and maintenance will keep your boiler running properly. Identifying any issues or problems early will mean you’ll be able to fix any issues straight away. A healthy, serviced boiler will most likely last longer than an un-serviced boiler. Saving you money in the long run. As a boiler service is definitely cheaper than replacing the whole boiler!
2. Saving you money on your energy bills
It’s often assumed that boiler efficiency is solely determined by the make, model and age of your boiler. During a boiler service with WRP Group, your WRP engineer will also check the efficiency of your boiler. These checks can save you money over time on your energy bills. We can identify and fix any issues that may by affecting your boilers efficiency. Therefore, saving more energy.
3. Can a boiler service identify any problems early?
Yes it can. The weather gets warmer and we turn the heating off and almost forget our boiler is there. But then the cold weather returns, we turn the heating up high and your boiler breaks down. Sound familiar?
Having a regular boiler service will work towards combatting these issues early. It will mean your engineer is able to check the health and efficiency of your boiler. Spotting any problems, even the little ones, will prevent them getting worse and turning into a bigger issue or a breakdown.
4. Protecting your health
Not only can a regular boiler service protect your boiler’s health but your own too. According to the Department of Health and Social Care, carbon monoxide poisoning in the home accounts for an average of 50 recorded deaths a year in the UK. In addition to up to 4,000 medical visits. The symptoms of the poisoning can be assumed to be other common illness. This is why it is so important to have your boiler checked on a regular basis. Giving you peace of mind or to identify any repairs needed to prevent ill health.
5. Keeping your warranty
If the boiler is under guarantee or extended warranty, it’s usually part of your contract to have a regular boiler service. Most boiler manufacturers will tell you to get a regular boiler service. It is often part of the terms and conditions set out in your warranty. If you don’t service your boiler within the guidelines, you may void you warranty. Should your boiler breakdown you will not be able to claim the money for the repairs so it’s worth checking your warranty details.
Whether it’s down to your warranty, money or health, there are many benefits to booking a service. If your boiler is overdue a service or if you can’t remember when it was last done, call us today on 01772 347327.
