Looking After Your Boiler In The Winter Months – Boiler Servicing Manchester

Winter is right around the corner and if you haven’t had your boiler serviced yet this year, it might be time. Keeping your boiler in good condition is a must – especially in time for the cold weather, just to keep you and your family warm. Once a year, it’s good to have your boiler serviced to ensure your boiler and central heating are working efficiently and safely all year round and reducing the likelihood of emergencies in the future.

Is An Annual Boiler Service Really Necessary?

Having your boiler serviced annually will allow your engineer to identify any problems or potential problems with your boiler and address them before they do any major and costly damage. No matter how small the problem may be, they will only get worse the longer they are ignored. Also, getting your boiler serviced and a small part changed will cost you a lot less than having to replace your boiler entirely.

When we carry out our checks, we’ll also ensure that your boiler is running efficiently. The more efficient your boiler is, the less you’ll pay on energy bills, as it’ll require less energy to run. It’s important to keep in mind though that the model of your boiler and how old it is, will determine just how energy efficient it can be.

Though checking over your boiler will not only ensure that it is running efficiently, but it will also ensure that it’s running safely. According to the Department of Health, 4000 people go to A&E each year with Carbon Monoxide poisoning. The symptoms for this poisoning can easily be mistaken for other common illnesses, so it is crucial that you have your boiler checked yearly, just to highlight any issues that could potentially seriously affect your health.
