How Important is Conducting A Boiler Service?
A boiler is a vital component of any household, as it ensures that you have heating and hot water within your home, as and when you require it.
But despite the boiler being relied upon by families all over the world, it’s been revealed that many Brits in the UK do not feel the need to get their boiler serviced, as one-quarter of homes admitted that they do not get their boilers serviced regularly.

The figures stem from a survey conducted by Worcester Bosch in 2017, and the findings are worrying, to say the least. Failing to get your boiler serviced regularly can easily compromise the safety of your boiler and could result in the appliance breaking down at a time, which could be when you need it the most.
When you’re driving your car, would you risk not getting your brakes or lights checked once a year? We know that you wouldn’t, so why leave it to chance when it comes to your heating appliances?
Why get your boiler serviced?
Having your boiler serviced annually can prevent potential problems from occurring in the future with your boiler and so you can avoid any unwanted disruption. Just like a typical car service, regular checks of your boiler can detect whether something is wrong or prevent any issues from getting worse.
We can conduct a boiler service on LPG, gas and oil boilers, to make sure they adhere to standards, whether they’re system, conventional or combi boilers. Rest assured, when we conduct a boiler service, we try to cause the least disruption to your daily routine, to get the job done swiftly with minimal fuss.
On your boiler service an experienced, fully-qualified engineer will come to your home, assess your boiler and make sure everything’s ticking over. If they discover a fault that needs to be rectified, one of our qualified engineer’s can carry out the work competently to ward off future disruptions and to ensure that your boiler is working at its optimum capacity.
By conducting a boiler service once a year you are also ensuring maximum central heating efficiency so that you keep your energy bills down to a minimum.
You’ll be pleased to hear that we can also manage your annual boiler servicing too so that we can remind you when your boiler service is due. When your boiler is due to a service, we will get in touch and book you in for a time that’s convenient for you.
Guarantee your family’s safety
If your boiler has not been installed properly, poorly maintained or regularly serviced it can produce carbon monoxide gas, also known as the silent killer. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be a real threat to your family and can even lead to death. The scariest thing about carbon monoxide is that it is virtually undetectable and is only really identifiable with a carbon monoxide detector fitted in your home.
However, a regular service will also ensure that you and your family’s safety is not compromised. Along with assurances over breakdowns, servicing provides invaluable peace of mind for health-related issues.
How much does a boiler service cost?

Require a new boiler?
We also install as well as service boilers, too. Did you know that an old, inefficient boiler could be costing you more to run and you could be saving over £300 per year if you choose to replace with an energy efficient boiler? Don’t forget, with a boiler that’s old, you’re going to have to shell out for costly boiler repairs – something you want to avoid.
In certain areas, the water supply can be hard which leads to a build-up of limescale in your pipework, boiler, hot water tank etc. It can shorten the lifespan of boilers over time and create issues for your heating and hot water system. If you are thinking of installing a Water Softener please get in touch.
