Increased efficiency: How a boiler service can improve efficiency
Although a boiler service probably isn’t the first thing on your mind right now, it’s definitely something you should be considering. Getting your boiler serviced not only ensures that it’s functioning as it should be, but it also has substantial benefits within your home in relation to both saving money and ‘greenness’. But these aren’t the only benefits…
What is a boiler service?
A boiler service is carried out by a qualified engineer to make sure your boiler and central heating system are cooperating as they should. It’s important to check that your boiler works safely and effectively so it doesn’t cause you any future issues or put you and your family at risk.
The engineer will check numerous aspects of the boiler to ensure that it’s performing to its full potential, such as:
- Flue analysis
- Safety inspection
- Gas and pressure flow check
- Electrical connections
- Internal main components
The inspections carried out on your boiler focus on the safety and efficiency of your boiler. However, the engineer will even clean out the inside of your unit if it needed.
What are the benefits of servicing my boiler?
A boiler service is a cost-effective measure to ensure the safety and warmth of your home. An engineer will check for any potential threats or current ones such as health hazards caused by carbon monoxide escaping. 4,000 people go to A&E each year with carbon monoxide poisoning in the UK alone due to leaks in their boilers. This statistic is shockingly high and highlights the importance of getting your boiler regularly serviced. Without these checks, it’ll have detrimental effects on not just your wellbeing, but also your wallet.
Getting your boiler regularly serviced can help reduce your energy bills by ensuring that it isn’t wasting energy. This will also improve the overall ‘greenness’ of your home, as well as decreasing fuel costs. It’ll also let you avoid unexpected repairs in the future.
Getting your boiler serviced is serious but simple. A qualified engineer will visit your home and will be done within an hour, giving you plenty of time to get on with the rest of your day. To find out more on boiler services or our other heating services, you can contact us here.
