Boiler servicing is an important task to add to your to-do list. Here we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about your boiler.
So, how often should boiler servicing take place?
We recommend getting a professional to look over your system once a year. This ensures that it stays in good shape, and is safe to use. It also helps to find and diagnose problems early, before they turn into bigger, more expensive issues. You might find that your heating system is rarely used in the summer, and if winter rolls around and there’s an issue with it, it might take some time to sort out. It’s better to keep on schedule with maintenance to ensure there’s no trouble when you need heat.
What Time Of Year Is Best For Boiler Servicing?
The best time of year to get the assessment is in the summer months. This way, it will see you through winter and reduce the chances of any problems cropping up during the time of the year that requires it most. Plus, engineers tend to be busier in winter fixing problems that are caused by colder temperatures.

Boiler servicing doesn’t take too long. Set aside an hour of time for a visit from an engineer. This could change depending on the type of the system and if anything out of the ordinary is found.

Over the years, just like any other system, a boiler’s performance can deteriorate. While it may be functioning just fine, it gets less and less efficient with age.

Boiler servicing can help ensure your system is working as it should, and it can make you aware of when you need a replacement.
