If you’re wondering whether it is the right time to get your central heating serviced, it more than likely is. Many people fall into the trap of thinking that their central heating either doesn’t need servicing at all or that it should only be serviced in winter.
Why should you service your central heating system?While some central heating systems will work fine up until a point with no servicing, for the same reasons your boiler is serviced, so should your heating be. This is not only because it guarantees that your heating system stays in great condition, but also because a good central heating service can save you a lot of money in the long run.How can we help?Our engineers are experts in making your heating system the most efficient one yet. We’re happy to come out and service your central heating and can combine the service with other inspections or installations if you would like us to. We can advise you on the ideal settings for your house too.How often should you service your central heating system?Remember, if you are a landlord, it is a legal requirement to have your system serviced every year. However, this does not have to be every winter. In fact, leaving servicing until winter can mean that your system isn’t in top condition when you need it most.
Summer or late autumn are great times to service a boiler, as it is then ready for when you need it. You can also opt for twice-yearly servicing. This is great if you have an older system that perhaps isn’t as reliable as it used to be.What are the risks if I don’t service my heating system?One of the biggest dangers of skipping servicing altogether is that it may break down and leak carbon monoxide into your system. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. Colourless and odourless, it can go entirely undetected unless you have a carbon monoxide alarm. The Department of Health and Social Care reported that over 4,000 people visit A&E each year with carbon monoxide poisoning, often thinking that they have something else due to the symptoms.By regularly servicing your boiler and heating systems, you can significantly reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, giving you and your family peace of mind.How do I get in touch?Our friendly customer service team are just on the other end of the phone.
