A boiler is one of the most important elements of your domestic or commercial property, making it essential to ensure it is properly serviced and maintained. It is an easy task to overlook but failing to do so can lead to a range of problems such as boiler breakdowns, inefficient running and more.
To help you keep your boiler in tip top operating condition, we’ve outlined 5 reasons why getting your domestic or commercial boiler serviced regularly is vital.
1. Save money
An often-forgotten benefit of boiler servicing is how much money it can save you in the long run. By getting regular servicing done, any faults or issues can be identified and addressed quickly, meaning the issue doesn’t become more serious (and, therefore, expensive). Since a well-maintained boiler will use up to 10% less energy than a boiler that isn’t being maintained, you’ll end up using less fuel and spending less money in this cost-of-living crisis!
2. Prolong the life of your boiler
It cannot be denied that boiler repairs are costly… but the good news is, regular boiler servicing can help to spot small faults before they turn into more serious problems. This will end up prolonging the life of your boiler and, ultimately, reducing the cost of repairs and delaying the cost of having to entirely replace the boiler when it reaches the end of its life.
3. Keep your home or workplace warm
It cannot be said enough times that at the heart of operating an efficiently running boiler is regular servicing and maintenance. If you don’t keep up to date with regular servicing, then your boiler will be far less efficient, leading to a cold and uncomfortable home or workplace. Making sure your boiler is always in tip-top shape will ensure that you and your family (or staff) are warm all winter long.
4. Increase the safety of your home or workplace
For domestic and commercial properties, boiler safety is essential for the overall safety of your home or workplace. Faulty boilers, or boilers that aren’t regularly serviced, can be a recipe for disaster. Getting your boiler serviced is the best way to ensure it’s running safely and there are no carbon monoxide (CO) gas leaks present which can lead to serious or even deadly consequences.
5. Keep your boiler warranty valid
Most boilers come with an average 5-year warranty when installed. Unfortunately, if you don’t keep up with your regular servicing agreement, your warranty won’t be valid. This can be a costly mistake if your boiler starts to fail in its fourth year, for example, and you’re expected to pay out for the repairs. So, make sure to keep your warranty valid and up to date by scheduling regular boiler servicing visits.
As you can see, it is essential to get your domestic or commercial boiler serviced regularly to ensure that not only your home or workplace is warm and safe but your bank balance is healthy.
