Reasons Why You Should Get Your Boiler Serviced

Here at Range Experts we understand that your boiler is at the heart of your home. It is responsible for both your heating and hot water, yet most of us take this for granted until they start causing us problems. Think about how the long winter months would be even colder if your boiler packed in! Boilers have a series of components which are designed to distribute heat and hot water. However, when these controls become faulty they can cause an imminent breakdown or struggle on running whilst hitting your energy bills hard.

It is well worth getting your boiler serviced annually, because with just a few simple checks on your thermostat, programmer and time switches your boiler could be up and running again if it is experiencing problems. With regards to saving money on your bills, our heating engineers will ensure that your boiler is running as efficiently as possible; which will contribute to minimising your heating bills and ensuring your home is kept warm this winter. A boiler engineer will be able to pick up minor faults which could escalate into a full blown breakdown in the future; catching any problems early may well save you money and prevent the inconvenience of a broken down boiler in future.

In addition to this, boilers that are not properly maintained can produce high levels of carbon monoxide which in turn can lead to life threatening carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is hard to spot, resulting in it being known as the silent killer, and it causes symptoms including headaches, drowsiness and stomach pains. It is far better to be safe than sorry and ensure you care for your boiler by routinely servicing it every year. We believe that it is also good practise to make sure you have a carbon monoxide alarm in any room containing an oil, gas or solid fuelled appliance, so we carry these in stock for sale on our vans to keep your family safe. Range Experts can make remembering your annual boiler service easy for you by adding you on to our system to automatically remind you when it is due a service to save you the hassle of it all.

At Range Experts we appreciate the importance of a properly serviced boiler. If you are a landlord then it is your legal responsibility to have your boiler serviced and have a landlords gas safety check up to date.

Check all controls are working

Clean burner and flueways

Inspect and replace seals as required

Test performance of flue

Advise on any worn parts

Check and adjust CO/CO2 levels to ensure it isn’t producing carbon monoxide
