Get your boiler serviced during the summer
Did you know that Summer is actually the best time of year to get your boiler serviced?
Don’t wait and risk it at Winter
The boiler is not in use
During the summer months the boiler isn’t in use as much, this is the ideal time to get it serviced as it would have been hard at work in the previous winter months. It’s easier for engineers to identify any potential issues; such as deposits building up in the boiler. If any potential issues are identified then you can get the work carried out whilst you don’t need the heating on, the boiler will then be in top shape for the upcoming winter months.
Why do I need to maintain my boiler?
You should have your boiler serviced annually. Not only will this ensure it’s running efficiently and safely for the year ahead, but it will also validate any manufacturer’s warranties you have on the appliance. Regular maintenance minimises the risk of breakdown and helps lengthen the lifespan of your boiler too.
Any issues can be identified
Issues can be identified and dealt with before any major damage occurs. When a boiler is run continuously or substantially for a period of time (especially in winter months), there’s added pressure on the system. Therefore, regular service and maintenance can mitigate potential problems.
There are some cases, however, where a service reveals a potential problem and when this happens during the summer, you have plenty of time to get the repairs done before you need to use the boiler regularly. In the worst case, if you need a boiler replacement, you have a bit of time to get organised to ensure that the work is done well before the weather turns cold outside.
There are usually shorter wait times
During the autumn/winter, everyone is rushing to get their boiler serviced. This means that it can be difficult to book your appointment for the time and date you need. Beat the rush and book your service now instead!
You will have peace of mind knowing that you’re winter ready
By having your boiler serviced during the summer, you can be certain you are ready for whatever the winter weather brings. This will give you peace of mind knowing that one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home / business is in full working order and ready to serve you throughout the winter.
Why should I service it now?
Once that first cold snap hits, so will the boiler breakdowns. Heating engineers across the country will be inundated with call outs and you are likely to have to wait much longer to get your central heating and hot water back up-and-running.
