Is Boiler Servicing Worth it?

If your boiler hasn’t been serviced in the last year, you are potentially at risk of higher energy bills, carbon monoxide leaks, voiding you guarantee/warranty and so much more. 
Granted, an annual boiler service isn't the most excited thing to spend your money on (especially when your boiler appears to be working fine), but they really are the best way to keep your boiler healthy.

What happens during a boiler service?

A boiler service can take 30 mins-2 hours on average and depends on the positioning, size and type of boiler you have in your home. During a service, our gas engineers will do the following…

  • Check for gas leaks or weak spots
  • Check the pressure level
  • Clean any parts that require it
  • Check for any worn out, inefficient parts
  • Check the main compartments, underneath the boiler casing

Benefits of regular boiler servicing

Reduced energy bills

Older boilers can become worn and inefficient, wasting energy that you are paying for. Our gas engineers look out for this and check for any fuel wastage throughout your system.
Getting your boiler serviced can save you money on your energy bills without you having to touch your thermostat, leaving you with more money to spend on the things you care about, while still leaving you with a warm, cosy home.

Increased reliability

Boilers that are serviced last much longer than those that aren’t as issues can be discovered and resolved while they are still small, before they escalate into a big boiler breakdown. 
This leaves you with peace of mind that you aren’t going to have to pay for an expensive boiler replacement sooner than you should need to.

Improved safety

Faulty boilers are at risk of leaking carbon monoxide, creating a fire or even causing an explosion. Regular servicing keeps your boiler in good shape, reducing the risk of any these issues occurring in your home. Your safety is our priority, so our gas engineers do all they can to eliminate these risks as much as possible.

Required by law (landlords only)

As a landlord, you are responsible for your tenants’ safety. By law, you are required to get every gas appliance checked each year to ensure all is working as it should. Failure to do so can leave you with a fine or worse, if something was to happen to your tenants.
