Why is an annual boiler service so essential?

There are plenty of reasons why having your boiler serviced annually is a great idea. In this blog, we’re taking a look at some of the most important reasons why this is.

The most compelling reason, naturally, is safety. A faulty or damaged boiler can lead to a gas leak, a fire or even carbon monoxide poisoning. An annual boiler service will identify any such faults and give you peace of mind knowing that your boiler is safe. If you’re a landlord, an annual gas safety certificate is a legal requirement.

Another reason is to catch any issues early on before they turn into bigger problems that will be more expensive to repair. If your boiler is still under warranty, it may be a condition that you have it serviced annually, as you could end up paying out of your own pocket for repairs if you don’t. Well-maintained boilers also tend to have a longer serviceable life than neglected boilers. Moreover, when the cold weather comes, your boiler will be working its hardest, so having it serviced ahead of winter will also reduce the chance of it breaking down during the period of the year when you need it the most.

The final reason for having your boiler serviced is to save money on your energy bills. Soot can build up in a gas boiler over time, and this is bound to affect its efficiency. Having your boiler serviced regularly will prevent this from happening, and the engineer will ensure that your boiler is working efficiently.
