When Should I Service My Boiler

There's plenty of scenarios where having your boiler serviced is a great idea. However, if you're uncertain as to what boiler servicing is, let us explain! Boiler servicing involves having a Gas Safe registered engineer perform the necessary checks and tests on your boiler to ensure everything is in working order and operating efficiently. 

In addition to this, below, we have listed some of the best times to get your boiler serviced. If you'd like to find out how we can help with boiler servicing across Bury, Greater Manchester, simply give us a call on our phone number on, 0161 942 6622.

Annual Basis Boiler Service

Having your boiler serviced on an annual basis is often the most typical recommendation of Gas Safe registered engineer. This is because it is an effective length of time for catching any building problems with your boiler. Having your boiler serviced more frequently that on an annual basis could be deemed unnecessary and costly. 

On top of this, an annual boiler servicing is just recommended to landlords; believe it or not, it is a legal requirement that landlord's ensure the boiler has received an annual boiler servicing. 

During The Summertime 

When the sun comes out, Gas Safe registered engineer are often less busy; meaning they are more likely to book your boiler service in and carry it out sooner. In addition to this, having your boiler serviced during the summer means that should any problems or faults occur, the Gas Safe registered engineer can carry out the repairs without leaving your home cold, like it would be in the winter.

When Moving Property

When moving house, it's possible that the previous owners of your new property didn't have a Gas Safe registered engineer conduct boiler servicing before leaving. Thus, having the boiler in your new house serviced is always a good idea.

On that note, hopefully you found some of these points interested and can now make a more informed decision on whether to service your boiler or not. However, you should never wait for faults and problems to occur with your boiler and assuming its in good condition isn't a good idea. Even if your boiler appears to be in working order and running smoothly, you should still have it serviced on an annual basis to keep it that way.
