Gas Boiler Care
There are plenty of reasons why your annual service is an integral part of gas boiler care. Much like a car, your boiler needs regular maintenance to ensure its efficiency, safety, and longevity.
Gas central heating is a very safe, very effective and relatively inexpensive way to heat your home. With proper gas boiler care, you can be assured that your central heating system will serve you well for many years. Gas boiler care isn’t too involved or expensive; to ensure you always get the best out of your boiler just follow these simple guidelines!
Having your boiler serviced annually is the most important aspect of gas boiler care to consider. Without regular servicing, your boiler will be less efficient, more prone to breakdown, and its lifespan will be decreased. It can feel like a pointless expense – particularly when your boiler appears to be
running just fine – but servicing can pick up on developing problems before they burn a hole in your pocket, and leave you with no heating or hot water! Plus, regularly serviced boilers are cheaper to run, saving money on your heating bills in the long term.
Keeping your boiler ticking over regularly is an important part of boiler care. The most common time for boilers to break down is at the end of the summer months, when they have been switched off (or used infrequently at best) for a long time. To prevent this from causing a breakdown when you need your boiler the most, be sure to switch it on a couple of times a week throughout the summer. If your boiler heats your water as well as your radiators, you needn’t worry about switching the heating on – however if you go away on holiday it’s worth setting a timer for while you’re away.
If you suspect there is something wrong with your boiler, have it checked by an RGI registered gas installer as soon as possible, even if it’s still working. Repairs are likely to be quicker and easier when carried out before a problem becomes worse. It’s also vital to ensure your safety – a boiler fault could cause a carbon monoxide leak, or – alarmingly – a gas leak. Proper gas boiler care will make sure that the chances of your system malfunctioning are very slim.
