A beginner’s guide to boiler servicing
Just like your car, having your boiler serviced once a year is important to make sure it works as well as possible. If you’ve never had your boiler serviced before, here’s a complete guide to the how and why.
Why is servicing your boiler important?
Servicing your boiler has lots of benefits:
Safety first: The most important reason to have your boiler serviced is to make sure it’s running safely, and that there’s no risk of any gas leaks or faulty parts.
Cost saving: As part of your service, the Gas Safety engineer will check that a boiler is running as efficiently as possible. This will make your heating run better and save you money on your bill. With energy prices set to increase in 2024, according to a recent BBC news article, it’s more important than ever to make sure your boiler is working at full capacity. You’ll also help to extend the life of your boiler.
Meet legal requirements: if you’re a landlord then an annual boiler service is required by law. It might also be required by some home insurance policies or warranties.
When should I get my boiler serviced?
You should get your boiler serviced annually to get the whole benefit. If you can, it’s best to try to do it in the summer to make sure that it’s ready for winter.
How much does it cost?
