06 Mar TOP 5… Reasons To Get Your Boiler Serviced Regularly
Boiler servicing can often be overlooked or easily forgotten about and 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 your boiler serviced, so here at WRP we thought we would give you our TOP 5:
1. CHEAPER THAN A REPLACEMENT BOILER
Regular checks and maintenance will keep your boiler running properly, and by identifying any issues or problems earlier 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 is often assumed that boiler efficiency is solely determined by the make, model and age of your boiler but DID YOU KNOW that during a boiler service your WRP engineer will also check the efficiency of your boiler. These checks can save you money over time on your energy bills, as we can identify and fix any issues that may by affecting your boilers efficiency and consequently using more energy.
3. IDENTIFY ANY PROBLEMS EARLY
The weather gets warmer, 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 your boiler serviced regularly, even if your service does fall in one of the warmer months, will mean your engineer is able to check the overall health and efficiency of your boiler. Spotting any problems, even the little ones, early, stopping them getting worse and turning into a bigger issue or a breakdown!
4. PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH
Not only can servicing your boiler regularly, protect your boilers health but your own too!
In the UK, carbon monoxide poisoning in the home accounts for an average of 50 recorded deaths a year and up to 4,000 medical visits, according to the Department of Health and Social Care.
The symptoms of the poisoning can easily be assumed to be other common illness, which is why is so important to have you boiler checked on a regular basis for peace of mind or to identify any repairs that need to be carried out in order to prevent ill health.
5. KEEPING YOUR WARRANTY
If your boiler is under guarantee or covered by extended warranty, it is usual part of your contract to have your boiler serviced regularly.
Most of the main boiler manufacturers will advise you get your boiler serviced regularly in order to comply with the terms and conditions set out in your warranty. Meaning if you do not service your boiler within the guidelines you may void you warranty and should your boiler breakdown you will not be able to claim the money for the repairs!
Whether or not your warranty requires you to service your boiler regularly, if you you’re looking to save some money or you are concerned for your household’s health, as you can see there are a number of reasons and benefits to booking your boiler service today!
