With our busy day to day schedules in the current world, many of us get so caught up in our jobs, friends, hobbies, and more daily events that we forget to keep up with the essential maintenance of some of our homes’ critical machinery. It’s important to get your boiler checked on an annual basis, but the truth is, many neglect to get this done. For some, this might simply be because they are so busy that they forget, or the time slips by without them noticing; for others, the reason might be because they don’t think it is truly necessary. Whatever the reason a person has for failing to get their boiler serviced on an annual basis, it’s probably not a good enough reason; the benefits almost always outweigh the cost. Here some reasons why it typically tends to be less hassle in the end to get your boiler serviced annually:

 

  • Catch boiler problems before they manifest: While your boiler undoubtedly sees the most use during the winter, you probably use hot water on a daily basis. Therefore, your boiler is something that you rely on each and every day, so you would not want to take it for granted by letting any problems your boiler is experiencing go unnoticed. Most of us don’t enjoy having to take cold showers, so it’s probably best to make sure there’s not a problem before you have to find out the hard way! Not only that, but identifying problems before they do any major damage can save you tons of money when it comes to fixing it! Catching these issues early usually results in a simple and quick fix, but if you let the problem get swept under the rug for too long, you might find that you need to shell out quite a bit of cash to get the problem remedied.

 

  • Cheaper than the need to replace your boiler: Having a regular service of your boiler will keep it running smoothly, and make it easy to catch problems before they get out of hand. Giving your boiler this kind of attention will ensure that it lives a longer lifetime, and is able to service you much longer than it otherwise would. The increased lifespan of your boiler will make sure that you don’t need to replace the entire unit prematurely, saving you tons of money in the long run.

 

  • Keeps your boiler running efficiently: If you are one of the people who wants to skip out on getting your boiler serviced because you feel like it is a waste of money, think again! Having your boiler undergo servicing annually will keep your boiler running efficiently, saving you money on your electricity bills.

 

  • Keeps your boiler under warranty: If your boiler comes with a warranty, it is typically with the condition that you have it serviced on a yearly basis. If you go more than 12 months without having your boiler serviced, this will often void your warranty. That means, if something does go wrong, you will not be able to claim your financial compensation for repairs.
