As plumbers and gas heating specialists we get asked “Do I really need to service my boiler every year?” Some customers think that if their boiler is working fine then its ok to leave well alone. It is obviously going to save money by not getting it serviced. We’ve heard people never having their boiler serviced! This is a mistake for the following reasons.
If you are going to get your boiler serviced annually, it should be done by a Gas Safe engineer so that you know that your boiler is being safely serviced for the coming year. Gas engineers are fully trained and regulated. Missing out on an annual boiler service may save you money in the short term but in the long term it may cost you a lot more. Make sure you get your boiler serviced, preferably in the Summer when you can deal with any problems before you need the boiler to work hard for you in the winter.
