It is important to have a boiler service every year for the following reasons:
To keep any warranty on your boiler valid. If you do not regularly service your boiler, when it breaks down, the manufacturer will likely refuse to fix it under warranty.
If you do not have your boiler serviced, you may miss the fact that any fuel burning boiler could potentially be emitting Carbon Monoxide. This is a toxic and odourless gas that can kill you. It is vital to have a carbon monoxide alarm in your home, and to regularly service your boiler, to minimise your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Servicing your boiler in the summer months is reccommended, as when the cold arrives in autumn, peoples boilers will be turned on, making it the busiest time for boiler breakdowns. This means boiler engineers are at their busiest. If you have your service in the summer, you’re less likely to have to wait for an appointment!
Finally, servicing your boiler regularly can save you money in the long run. An annual boiler service can reduce the risk of a costly breakdown or an out of warranty claim.
