Why bother with a boiler service?

showing you how to use your boiler

When was your last boiler service?

If you can’t remember, you’re probably due one!

Autumn’s here and we’re fast heading towards the time when we’ll have to switch our central heating back on. Because you rely on your boiler to keep you warm and comfortable, it’s a good idea to think about arranging an annual boiler service if you haven’t already had one.

Although it might seem like hassle, a boiler service is more than worth it in the long run. And it’s probably a lot more affordable than you think. At BASI, a full boiler service costs just £70 and is usually carried out within a couple of hours.

Here’s how a boiler service will benefit you:

Prevent potential problems

  • Catch potential faults before it’s too late
  • Limit wear and tear
  • Prevent a costly, disruptive breakdown

Like your car, boilers are complex machines that require regular maintenance to keep them working properly. And, just like your car, without proper care they can break down – landing you with hefty repair bills.

A boiler service can catch potential problems before they become more serious, saving you the cost and stress of a breakdown. During a service, your engineer will carry out routine maintenance that helps limit wear and tear and keep your system running properly. This becomes especially important when your boiler is put under added strain during the colder months.

Ensure everything’s working efficiently

  • Thorough clean of your system
  • Test performance of the boiler
  • Make sure your heating is running efficiently

As well as carrying out a thorough clean of the inner workings of your boiler, your engineer will run checks to make sure everything’s working at peak efficiency. Most boilers have a lifespan of around ten years, but only if they’ve been serviced every year.

A boiler that isn’t working efficiently will be costing you money every single month and, if this is the case, it’s better that your engineer diagnoses the problem sooner rather than later.

Keep your home safe

  • Flue testing to make sure boiler emissions are safe
  • Gas pressure tests to check for leaks

An annual boiler service is a necessary requirement for the safety of your home. At best, an inefficient boiler can cause your energy bills to soar. But, at worst, a neglected boiler could develop an undetected gas leak or unsafe emissions.

It might seem like an unlikely situation, but a faulty boiler is really not something you want to leave to chance. A quick service provides you with the peace of mind your boiler is operating safely and efficiently, all year around.
