When do I need to service my boiler?

You are always told by boiler manufacturers to service your boiler every year- but when else should you get it checked out? It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to boilers, so keep reading to find out more...

Do I need to service my boiler every year?

Yes! Your boiler should be serviced every year to find any problems before they are left to develop and become much more expensive to fix. Any more regular than annually may be unnecessary, so this is a good time period to wait between checks.

Should I service the boiler in my new home?

If you have just moved house, it is definitely a good idea to get the boiler checked, as you can never be sure when it was last serviced. This also helps you get into the routine of annual servicing moving forward. When moving into a new home, you want to make sure everything is safe and sound, so you should definitely check for any hidden problems with your boiler.

When should I get my boiler serviced?

Ideally, you should book in for your service in the summer months- we recommend July or August. Not only is this when gas engineers will be least busy. It also means you can find out any problems before you begin to rely on it for warmth every day in the winter. There is nothing worse than going to switch your boiler on when it starts getting cold and finding out it won't turn on.

Should I service my boiler even when it seems fine?

You should never wait for a problem to occur within your boiler. Why wait for it to breakdown and become expensive to fix, when you could have stopped the problem developing into a breakdown with regular servicing? Not all problems are noticeable at first, especially to the untrained eye, so it is always good to get an experts opinion each year- even when it seems like a waste of money.
