Boiler Servicing Manchester

You Can Catch Boiler Problems Early

It can be very easy to forget that boilers aren’t just used in the Winter – they heat up the water for your warm shower in the morning and whenever you turn a hot tap on. Having your boiler serviced is just like having a car serviced, and it can detect whether there is something wrong or catch any issues before they get worse. Then, whatever the issue is, one of our Gas Safe engineers can fix it quickly.

It Can Save You Money On Your Energy Bills

A boiler service may cost you money, but it isn’t a waste. As part of the servicing, an engineer will carry out all the necessary checks to ensure that your boiler is in top condition and is running efficiently. When your boiler is running efficiently it can actually save you money over time, depending on the model and age, as it’ll use less energy while running and will subsequently keep your energy bills low.

Your Boiler Will Be Safe

If your boiler is poorly maintained or not regularly serviced, it may be producing carbon monoxide gas. This substance is incredibly harmful and can even lead to fatalities. According to the Department of Health and Social Care, carbon monoxide poisoning in the home accounts for an average of 50 recorded deaths a year and up to 4000 medical visits in the UK. The symptoms of this poisoning aren’t always obvious but include:

  • A headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomach pain

So, it is critical to have your boiler tested regularly – just for the peace of mind that you’re safe and to highlight any repairs needed to prevent damage to your health.

Prolong your boiler lifespan

Needing to replace a boiler can be costly so you want to be able to get the most of the investment you made in the boiler you already have. An annual service can help you maintain a healthy and efficient boiler and only require you to make small payments for parts.
