Your boiler is one of the most important pieces of kit in your entire home. It keeps you warm and provides hot water for everyday essentials. So, when it breaks, you can really struggle until it’s repaired. That’s why it makes sense to get your boiler serviced regularly – it’ll keep it working at its best and make sure any problems are spotted and sorted early, before they cause a complete breakdown.
A boiler service will usually entail a complete check of the chimney and burner, as well as making sure all seals, gaskets and valves have good integrity and don’t look like they’re going to wear down and spring a leak. Any traps and drains will be checked for debris and cleaned, and all gas connections will be tested to ensure they are safe.
One of the most common questions we’re asked is how often your boiler should be serviced. It’s recommended that you have your boiler serviced 12 months after it is installed, and then on an annual basis from there. It may seem a lot but if your boiler completely breaks down, you could be looking at a much more significant cost to repair or replace it, with something that could have been prevented if caught sooner. Regular servicing also means that your boiler will work for longer – extending the average lifespan to around 15 years.
