Why summer is the best time to have your boiler serviced

Having your boiler serviced annually is a routine way of keeping costs to a minimum, allowing ample time for any faults, inefficiencies or safety risks to be detected before festering into expensive repairs.

You may not have given much thought to the timing of the yearly visits. However, to get the most out of each one, you should always choose to have your boiler serviced in the summer where possible.


No nasty boiler surprises

The most obvious benefit to getting your boiler serviced in the summer is that any faults will be detected before the cold autumn and winter months set in, when boilers are typically needed most.

This is in addition to the fact that Clarity Heating is least busy in summer, meaning you likely won’t need to wait long to get your heating back up and running.

If you’re able to book your boiler servicing during the school holidays, there’s also a chance you’ll already be off work to spend time with family, meaning you won’t need to take additional time off to be present for the servicing and let our team into your property.

Planning ahead with your boiler

There’s always a chance of boilers seizing up when left dormant for a long time. However, this is usually only realised when people go to switch them on in September or October after months of hot weather.
By calling out Clarity Heating in the summer, we can ensure your boiler is ready to get back into action as soon as it’s needed again. This will also help you avoid the autumn rush, when most people realise that their boilers need fixing.

Don’t be left hanging

If a serious fault is found with your boiler it may need to be replaced entirely, which can mean a period of time without central heating.

It goes without saying that boiler replacements are much better timed for the summer when the absence of hot water or radiators is more bearable for extended periods of time.

However, no matter what time of year, if you find yourself in need of a replacement, servicing or repair, you should always contact the Clarity Heating team.
