Keep Your Boiler Running
When was the last time you thought about how your boiler works? It’s likely that you considered it when you got your boiler installed, when you moved into a property and had questions about the existing system or when winter hit and yours stopped working. Unfortunately, a broken boiler is a relatively common occurrence and can be dangerous for families that rely on heating and hot water. Fortunately, regular boiler servicing can prolong the life of your boiler and reduce the need for repairs.
Like cars, boilers are at a higher risk of breaking if you don’t keep them in the best possible condition. Once your boiler is installed, regular servicing will keep it running as efficiently as possible.
As well as protecting you from expensive repair costs, servicing your boiler each year could cut your household energy bills by 10-15%.
Regular servicing can also protect you from Carbon Monoxide poisoning, though it’s recommended that you also install CO alarms in your home.
The cost of annual boiler servicing will vary from provider to provider, but typically costs less than £100. For that price, you enjoy peace of mind and a lower energy bill. On the other hand, the average cost of boiler repairs has been found to be almost £250, making it easy to see how prevention is better than cure.
The Devon Boilersure Scheme
Boiler engineers that are members of the Devon Boilersure Scheme have been checked and vetted for your safety and security. Engineers will install energy-efficient boilers, and may be happy to arrange an annual servicing contract.
Your boiler might be in a small cupboard, where it’s not noticed until something goes wrong, but regular checks will protect your health as well as your bank balance.
