Why Should You Get Your Boiler Serviced?

Open boiler and tools

Do you want to make your boiler more efficient and save on your energy bills? If your boiler seems to be working fine in the hotter months, you should think ahead and service your boiler for the winter, before you have issues of no heating when you need it.

Your boiler practically works as your home’s central heating system, so the last thing you need is a boiler breakdown when the weather is at its coldest. That’s why yearly servicing is imperative for boiler maintenance and sometimes even legally required as a condition of your insurance in some neighbourhoods.

Given the complexity of your boiler’s system, our Gas Safe Register-certified engineers at Videtta Heating & Plumbing will perform a series of checks to ensure that your boiler is in working order to address the following:

●      Boiler controls

●      Electrical connections

●      Gas and pressure flow

●      Boiler filters

●      Condensate traps

Our engineers perform these tests to ensure your boiler works properly so your family stays warm during the chilly months. We’ll also inform you if the boiler fails to meet our strict standards or building and safety legislation so we can get the problems fixed promptly.

What Are the Benefits of Servicing My Boiler?

Annual boiler servicing is beneficial for several reasons. An engineer inspecting your boiler and making sure it’s running efficiently can find and correct minor problems to help you avoid paying for costly boiler repairs in the future. Working boilers use less energy and are less expensive to run, so keeping your boiler serviced will also help you save money on your heating bill.

Boiler Servicing Is Cheaper Than Repair or Installation

The average cost of boiler service in the UK can range from £60 to £100, whilst many boiler repairs can reach upwards of £200. And if your boiler becomes inefficient, you may spend anywhere from £1500 to £5000 on boiler installation to get a new one.

However, you only need to get your boiler serviced once a year. Given that boilers are built to last long if regularly serviced and maintained, that annual expense is a low price to pay for ensuring your boiler is working correctly and saving you money.

Boiler Servicing Is a Fast and Straightforward Process

Having a Gas Safe expert service your boiler is a relatively quick process. First, an engineer will ensure the boiler’s controls and gas pressure are in working order and check for any corrosion or damage. They will also make sure the boiler is producing the proper amount of gas and isn’t leaking anywhere to expose your family to carbon monoxide, which is an unforeseen danger that could poison everyone in the home. If everything goes well, the process should take no longer than an hour, and your engineer will sign off on the boiler for another year.

When Is the Best Time to Get My Boiler Serviced?

Due to the high demand for boiler repair in the UK during the cold season, it’s best to book your service appointment in the summer when business is slow. This will give the engineer enough time to repair any minor issues so your boiler will be ready for the coming winter. Otherwise, if your boiler suddenly breaks down, you will have to live without heat while waiting to get your boiler fixed, and that’s never a comfortable situation.
