Boiler Maintenance: Why Its Necessary
Boiler maintenance is important to ensure that your boiler is running efficiently and safely so it can supply heating and hot water to your home. In order to keep it running properly you should have your boiler serviced regularly. We recommend once a year.
Finding Boiler Faults
Much like a car service, during the course of a boiler service your gas engineer will be able to identify any existing problems with your boiler. They will be able to fix the faults before the get worse and cause bigger problems with your boiler. Regular maintenance leads to a longer lifetime for your boiler meaning you don’t have to spend hundreds and possibly thousands on a replacement.
Improved Boiler Efficency
Regular boiler maintenance also helps to ensure that your boiler is working efficiently. If you boiler isn’t working efficiently this will increase your gas consumption as it has to burn more gas to produce the same amount of heat. In turn this increases your house hold energy bills and it unnecessarily damages the enviroment.
Boiler Maintenance: Safety Implications
Boilers that have been incorrectly installed or are not maintained properly can be harmful to your health and potentially fatal.
When boilers are faulty the don’t burn gas completely this creates carbon monoxide which is a colourless, odourless gas. The health implications occur when carbon monoxide levels increase in your home it can cause suffocation and death.
the best way to avoid this is to conduct regular boiler maintenance and but a carbon monoxide alarm (these are cheap and available at most DIY stores). The alarm will sound when it detects carbon monoxide and alert you to the problem.
