We’re often asked “Why service my boiler?” Most of us take our central heating system and hot water supply for granted.
It’s unlikely that we think about our hard-working boiler, slaving away in the cupboard helping to keep us warm and clean.
My boiler seems to be working fine, so why does it need a service?
There are three good reasons why an annual boiler check-up is such a worthwhile investment:
- It could save your life – if your boiler is faulty it could leak carbon monoxide gas into your home. Every year up to 50 people in the UK die from carbon monoxide poisoning and many thousands more fall sick. Low levels of the gas can cause long-term health damage.
- A service could cut your fuel bills – it will ensure your boiler is working to the highest level of efficiency, and burning up less fuel.
- Boiler care will keep you warm – it’s one of the most miserable experiences you can have when you wake up on a cold and frosty morning and find your house cold and frosty, because your heating isn’t working. Neglect can lead to boiler breakdown. A service will ensure faults can be avoided or fixed.
Our heating engineers at Clarity Heating can service all types of boilers from combination (or combi’s) to regular or system boilers, fuelled by mains gas, LPG or oil.
They will carry out a thorough visual inspection of the boiler and controls, check for corrosion and leaks, conduct a gas pressure check and flue test, and check other key components. It will only take about an hour, and cost around £80 (including VAT) depending on the type of boiler you have.
