Having your boiler serviced will make sure it’s running smoothly. But just how often should you have your boiler serviced? Read on as we provide all the answers.
Every year, the changing seasons provide different challenges for your boiler. In winter, it’s put to the test with the heating on most days and freezing temperatures through the night. In summer, it has to deal with longer periods of inactivity but still be on hand to provide hot water.
With all of this in mind, an annual service is the best way to keep your boiler in a good working condition and pre-empt any potential problems. How often you should have your boiler serviced is also determined by your warranty, with many manufacturers requiring an annual check-up to keep your warranty valid.
As a side note, we also recommend having your boiler serviced whenever you move into a new home. In many cases, you won’t know when or how often the boiler was serviced under the previous owner. A professional service after moving in will make sure you’re not wasting money from the get-go in your new home.
Having your boiler serviced annually is the most important thing to keep it working well and minimise disruption for your home. However, if you really want to stay on the ball, you can have your boiler serviced in summer.
First of all, engineers are less busy in the summer months, which means you’ll be able to get an appointment much quicker at a time that suits you. On top of that, if any issues are found when servicing your boiler, you won’t be left cold while it’s being repaired.
Booking your annual boiler service in summer or autumn will also make sure your boiler is fully prepared for the winter months when it’s needed pretty much every day.
If you’re used to leaving your boiler in the background, hearing that an annual service is best may come as a shock. After all, is it really worth paying for your boiler to be serviced that often? In short, the answer is yes. Here’s why:
