Many homeowners make the mistake of ignoring regular servicing of the boiler when their boiler is working fine and keeping their house warm. People only notice when their boiler either breaks down or stops working properly. A regularly serviced boiler burns up to 10% less fuel. In other words, the savings on fuel easily cover the servicing cost of a boiler.
Benefits of Regular Servicing
Efficiency and Safety
If your boiler is not maintained properly, it not only burns more fuel but it also may result in leakage of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a very poisonous gas and it is completely odorless. On the other hand, a well-maintained boiler burns fuel efficiently and does not leak any dangerous gases.
It has been seen that most of the boilers breakdown when the boiler is most needed. The best way to keep your boiler working in a safe manner is to get it serviced regularly. The engineer will take care of the minor repairs that are needed to keep running the boiler in the most efficient way before they turn into big and expensive problems.
Regular servicing also saves you a lot of money in the long run as it prolongs the life of your boiler and also helps you in avoiding costly repairs.
Possible Problems with Boilers
Most of the times, boiler problems are related to a malfunctioning thermostat, no power to the boiler, low levels of water and other such things. Sometimes, fuse controls and circuit breakers are the cause of the problem and sometimes, the temperature setting goes awry.
Mineral deposits may also cause problems with boilers. In such cases, the servicing company will need to flush the boiler to get rid of the mineral deposits.
It won’t be wrong to say that boilers are one of the most neglected pieces of equipment in a home. As long as these are working properly, homeowners do not worry about these. This is the biggest reason that people tend to avoid getting their boiler serviced on a regular basis.
Almost all of the boiler manufacturers recommend getting the boiler serviced on an annual basis. Also, in most of the cases, the warranty of the boiler is void if annual servicing is not carried out.
There are quite a few professional gas boiler-servicing companies available in every city that can quickly check for the problems and repair those problems. Professional gas boiler servicing includes carbon monoxide checks, thermostat checks, pressure checks, plumbing checks, safety checks and many other things.
You should treat gas boiler service as an investment for the future. This is an investment that will not only save you money but will also ensure the safety of your family. Also, you are least likely to get stuck with no heating in the winter months.
