Is a Boiler Service Really Worth It?

21/01/2024

Keeping your home running smoothly involves a lot of effort, from everyday cleaning to making sure everything is safe and efficient. When it comes to your boiler and central heating system, it's essential to arrange a thorough service by a certified Gas Safe engineer each year.

What does a boiler service involve?

When you choose Kesselmann for your boiler service, we'll send a Gas Safe engineer at a time that suits you. Our engineers are punctual and aim to complete the service efficiently, usually taking between 30 minutes to an hour. The service includes a careful examination of your boiler's internal components to ensure everything is working optimally.

Boilers are complex pieces of equipment, and even small issues can lead to a loss of heating and hot water. By thoroughly inspecting the system, the engineer can either confirm everything is in order, providing peace of mind until the next service, or identify issues that need attention. If immediate repairs are necessary, we'll schedule a follow-up visit promptly to minimise any disruption to your home.

Improving energy efficiency

An annual boiler service plays a significant role in maintaining an energy-efficient heating system. This not only reduces your carbon footprint but also positively affects your energy bills by lowering your monthly usage.

Preventing breakdowns

Regular maintenance by a Gas Safe engineer significantly lowers the chances of boiler issues. While occasional issues may still occur, they are likely to be infrequent and easier to address compared to a boiler that hasn't been regularly serviced. This proactive approach ensures smoother operation and minimises the impact of any arising problems.

Preserving warranty validity

Skipping even one annual boiler service renders your manufacturer's warranty void. This oversight could result in significant expenses if your boiler needs replacement. Avoid unnecessary financial burdens by scheduling regular services as recommended.

Safety for your family

Undetected carbon monoxide leaks pose a serious threat to your family's safety. Carbon monoxide is invisible and odourless, earning it the nickname "the silent killer." A boiler service is crucial for identifying and addressing potential issues, preventing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The NHS reports annual fatalities and illnesses resulting from carbon monoxide leaks, underscoring the importance of regular servicing to keep your family safe.
