Why regular boiler servicing is essential

Regular servicing is the single best thing you can do to maintain the health of your boiler and keep gas and energy bills low. Hampshire Technical are here to take you through why this is the case in our latest blog post. 

Protect the people you live with

The potential dangers of a faulty boiler cannot be understated. extremely dangerous without you even realising it. An annual boiler service can help protect your family against fires, explosions, gas leaks and potential carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an odourless, transparent and poisonous gas that can cause a lot of damage and even result in death if exposed to too much of it.

Lower your gas and energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint

An annual boiler service can help ensure your boiler is operating as efficiently as possible. Servicing at least once a year massively reduces the risk of breakdown while also helping to lengthen the lifespan of your boiler simultaneously. Not only will this save you money on your energy bills year on year,  but it will also contribute to reducing your carbon footprint.

Keep your boiler guarantee or warranty valid

Failing to get your boiler serviced at least once a year will invalidate any guarantee or warranty that you have on your boiler. Many manufacturer guarantees require your new boiler to be serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer at least once a year, so in order to ensure that these remain valid, you need to ensure that you book in an annual service.

Short term loss for long term gain!

Although getting your boiler serviced every year is bound to cost you money, in the long term, you are likely to massively benefit from this. The reality is that you could actually be spending more in the long term by neglecting to get your boiler serviced at least once a year as there could be minor issues that are being addressed at the earliest point, that have the potential to explode into much more significant boiler issues, that are likely to be very expensive to repair. 

Book now while the weather's warm

Hampshire Technical advise all of our customers to schedule their annual boiler service during the warmer summer months, between April and August, because it is generally true that most heating engineers are less busy during these times. When heating engineers have more time on their hands, they are much more likely to do a more comprehensive job that's worthy of the investment that you are making, and less likely to miss certain faults that they could fail to spot if in a hurry.

As the weather gets colder, heating engineers schedules become far busier, and you will begin to see that there is less availability for boiler servicing in these times.
