How often should I get my boiler serviced?
This is a really common question that we get asked a lot here at Pure Boilers. Most homes in this country are heated by a gas boiler, powering both central heating and hot water. Making sure it’s running at optimum efficiency really does go a long way to reducing those household bills whilst also avoiding the potential risks of carbon monoxide poisoning and gas leaks.
So, no surprises that we get asked the question a lot.
Preventing problems with your boiler is therefore key to avoiding any potential disturbances to your daily routine.
Embrace regular servicing
One of the best ways to ensure that your boiler is working when you need it, is to ensure that it is regularly serviced. Similar to a car, putting your boiler through regular annual services can go a long way to keeping it running well, all year round. All it takes is a once a year visit from a qualified engineer.
Sure it costs a little bit of money but the efficiency in your boiler will offset and possibly return your money within a year and the peace of mind it brings is priceless.
Boilers today are more efficient than ever before, but even the latest models can become clogged up over time. Whatever your boiler’s age, you’ll stand to make significant savings on your household energy bill by carrying out regular boiler checks. A thorough service of your boiler and heating system will also give you an indication of how efficiently the radiators are working, as they may be partially blocked with sludge, which in turn, will massively reduce their heat output. See photo below of sludge being removed from a clogged system via a power flush.
You don’t even have to remember to get the servicing done, the growth in our annual reminders here at Pure Boilers has proven to be very popular, a ringing endorsement of just what benefits that hundreds of happy customers attest to.
Ensuring a quality service
Regular boiler services are only likely to pay off if carried out by a professional. Here at Pure Boilers, all of our engineers are fully qualified and Gas Safe Registered.
