the importance of an annual boiler service
The importance of having an annual boiler service is often forgotten, however by forgetting to have an annual service completed on your boiler you could be at risk of your boiler breaking or not working efficiently.
By checking multiple aspects of your boiler, there are many benefits of annual boiler services, these include:
- Energy Efficiency
- Extend boiler life
- Boiler cover claims
How does an annual boiler service improve these?
There are many checks which are completed in an annual service, an engineer will inspect your boiler and controls in depth. This will include checking your boiler for any gas leaks and corrosion which may cause future leaks.
If you have had your boiler for many years without having a service it is very likely that your boiler will not be working to its best energy efficiency. Similar to anything else, over time components of your boiler will deteriorate which will result in a decrease in energy efficiency and an increase in fuel bills.
All main components will be checked by removing the outer boiler casing. All components will be cleaned or replaced as needed, a gas pressure test and flue test will be completed to ensure that your boiler is working at the correct pressure and no emissions are being released. Therefore increasing the overall energy efficiency boiler life.
If you ever need to claim on your house insurance for your boiler the majority of insurance companies will ask for proof of annual boiler servicing, without this they are very likely to reject the claim.
