There are a number of reasons why you need to have your boiler checked annually. It’s vital that we don’t underestimate how dangerous a faulty boiler can be. Boilers in need of repair can cause carbon monoxide poisoning due to leaking, and official stats from the government say that around 50 people die every year because of faulty boilers. When your boiler is serviced, leaks are checked for and fixed and other problems are attended to.
Why you should have your boiler checked annually
One other good reason to have your boiler checked annually is that the engineer can help you save money. They will check that the appliance isn’t wasting energy, which will help you cut down your bills and your carbon footprint. Having your boiler looked at every year can also help you avoid expensive repairs in future. Engineers can fix minor problems that could lead to huge repair bills if action is taken immediately.
If you’re running a business, you’ll be legally required to ensure your boiler is maintained on a regular basis and declared safe to use. You will need to have a Gas Safe certificate for your boiler. When you do have your boiler checked annually, you can avoid big penalties and loss of reputation. If you don’t have the boiler looked at by a professional on a regular basis, you could invalidate your boiler warranty as well as your home or business insurance policy.
