Reasons To Get Your Boiler Serviced Before Winter
Winter is fast approaching and with all the excitement about holidays and Christmas, we have a habit of forgetting the essentials.
One of the most important things to consider regarding the upkeep of your home is an annual boiler service.
Why Should You Get Your Boiler Serviced Before Winter
Having a boiler service ready for winter should be one of your top priorities. It helps you to keep your family safe and warm and will make the Christmas season much more comfortable and enjoyable. Your winter boiler service will also give you peace of mind so you can relax and have fun.
There are lots of reasons why a boiler service in Wellingborough is important to your home, family and your own happiness:
Reduce Your Heating Bills
Throughout winter, everyone is familiar with the increasing bills for heating and electricity as the cold, dark nights draw in.
While a winter boiler service will cost you a little money, a regular service is actually proven to increase your boiler’s efficiency and reliability. This means that in the long run, you may actually save yourself money, especially when energy bills are soaring.
Keep Everyone Comfortable And Safe
There’s nothing worse than sitting in your home and being cold in the winter. Your home is supposed to be the place where you can relax and be comfortable. But if your boiler is running at a lower efficiency, or needs repairs due to lack of servicing, you’ll find yourself struggling with cold showers in freezing temperatures.
Servicing your boiler also helps to keep your family safe from carbon monoxide poisoning. The Department of Health reports up to 4000 people each year visiting A&E due to poisoning from a gas appliance that could have been caught earlier if the boiler had been serviced.
For this reason, it’s also a legal requirement for landlords to service their boilers annually to maintain the safety of tenants.
Save Yourself The Hassle Of Boiler Repairs
Your boiler will be under warranty for the first few years. You will usually need to service your boiler in order to keep up with the warranty, should your boiler ever need replacement parts.
Boiler repairs can also take a long time. There may be parts to order and the fitting of a new boiler will disrupt your life for the day while you have workmen in your home testing the gas safety.
Annual winter boiler services help to avoid this. The service itself takes up to 30 minutes and won’t cause any mess or disruption. This allows you to get on with your day with the peace of mind that your home is safe and warm.
It Helps Your Boiler Last Longer
You will also need to consider that, the older your boiler is, the more likely it is to need repairs. An annual service will help to catch issues early, or even before they occur, helping you to fix a problem before it develops and ultimately, preserving your warranty and saving you a huge bill for new parts or a replacement boiler later on.
