Here at SGS we find that most homeowners take their heating and hot water provision for granted until problems occur. These problems usually result in a lack of heating or hot water. That’s typically the moment our expert HETAS plumbers are called in to save the day.
One of the best ways to help avoid an unexpected boiler breakdown is to have your boiler serviced annually. Here are our top five reasons for having your gas, oil or LPG boiler serviced annually:
Health & Safety
Our primary concern during every job we carry out at SGS is the safety of our customers and our staff. Carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer and the most common source of carbon monoxide poisoning in your home is faulty central heating appliances.
By having your boiler serviced annually by our qualified engineers, you can significantly reduce the risk to yourself and your family from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Avoid unexpected repair bills
By having your boiler serviced annually it will be maintained correctly. Boilers that aren’t serviced regularly often have significantly higher repair bills than boilers that are serviced regularly.
Maintain your boiler warranty
If your boiler is still under warranty with the manufacturer then in order to maintain that warranty you must have your boiler serviced annually. If your boiler isn’t serviced once a year this could invalidate your warranty leaving you responsible for any repair costs that would ordinarily have been paid for by the manufacturer.
Reduce fuel bills
A regularly serviced, well maintained boiler will operate much more efficiently than a boiler that hasn’t been serviced regularly. We wouldn’t want any of our customers paying more for their heating and hot water than they should be!
Comply with the law
Landlords are legally obliged to have the boilers in their rental properties serviced annually along with a Landlords Gas Safety Certificate issued for all gas appliances in the property.
