Your Summer Holiday Boiler Repair Service
There’s not long left until the schools finally break up for the summer holidays. Which means it is time to get the plumbers in. You might think it’s strange hiring a plumber when there seems to be nothing wrong, but doing so can save you a lot of money and angry phone calls from parents. With school almost out, the kids can spend their days running about in the sun and the teachers can have the much-needed break they are longing for. Let’s face it. No one wants to be in school during the summer; unless you’re a heating engineer.
Boiler repair for your school
The summer holidays are the perfect opportunity for your school’s boiler to undergo essential maintenance. Engineers and plumbers will check that your boiler and heating system are functioning properly. They can also tell if it will continue to do so into the extended future. This maintenance may include:
– Draining and flushing
– Examining the boiler for damage or corrosion
– Carrying out repairs.
Carrying out these checks are an important part of keeping children and staff safe in your school. It’s best to do these checks during the summer because there is no one in the school. The warmer weather means shutting the boiler off won’t result in frozen children and using hot water isn’t necessary. This means engineers are free to carry out their boiler repair and checks comfortably and carefully.
You’ve probably heard the saying, ‘if something is not broken, don’t fix it’. Well, unfortunately, this doesn’t apply to boilers. There can be many underlying problems that you won’t notice until it is too late. This could mean your boiler breaks down during the winter months when you need it the most. Suddenly you’re having to close the school for a few days because you can’t open with a broken boiler as a matter of health and safety. The children are rejoicing but the parents, they’re angry. Finding emergency childcare is likely just as annoying as finding an emergency boiler repair service. They can both be costly.
Depending on what is wrong, a boiler repair can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. That’s a lot of time children will be missing from school and a lot of time for the parent’s anger to brew. Avoid this by doing the necessary maintenance during the summer. Don’t worry about the cost. Most boiler repair services offer monthly cover plans. This means that for a small fee each month you can rest assured that if anything were to go wrong, you are covered. These plans often protect you against emergency call outs all year, repairs, including labour and parts, and an annual service. Hopefully, you’ll only need the latter.
