If you’re a homeowner or a landlord, it is down to you to organise your annual gas service boiler.

This is important for the following reasons:

  • A regularly serviced boiler is safer. Servicing is an opportunity for your engineer to spot problems, or where problems may arise. Although gas boilers are generally very safe, they can be lethal if not properly maintained (or, worse, maintained by somebody who doesn’t know what they’re doing).
  • Servicing means greater efficiency. Just like a car, your boiler needs regular tweaking to make sure that everything is running as well as it should.
  • Regular servicing helps to prevent breakdowns and costly repairs. Problems can be spotted before they cause your boiler to pack in altogether, and your central heating system will enjoy a longer life span when it’s taken care of properly.
  • Landlords are legally required to make sure that the gas appliances in their let homes are fit for use. You are essentially responsible for the safety of your tenants, in this respect.

To make sure that your let is legally habitable, and that you are covered legally, annual gas service boiler and safety checking is vital and necessary.

Firstly, find out when your last gas boiler service was. They should be carried out once a year, although some professionals recommend that you can get away with every two years if you have a brand new boiler. We would always still recommend yearly servicing, as this will save you money in the long run.
