How to Completely Change Your Thoughts About HVAC

Welcome to my blog. My name is Betty, and I recently invested in a new heating and cooling system. It had been years since I had purchased our old system, and my husband was alive then. This was the first time selecting my own system. I did a lot of research and even considered taking our HVAC system off the grid. Now, that my house is the perfect temperature all the time, I'm ready to try something else -- so I decided to start a blog. Here, I am going to post a range of blogs on HVAC related issues as well as home repairs and other topics. I hope that you like it.

4 Benefits of Regular Boiler Servicing

by Eva Fisher

When your boiler is working well, it can be tempting to put off boiler servicing, but this course of action is usually a mistake. Regular boiler servicing has many advantages, ranging from the safety of your family to the costs of heating your home. Here are some of the most compelling reasons to schedule an annual boiler service.

1. Stay Safe

A faulty boiler can lead to a fire, explosion or leak of dangerous carbon monoxide gas. Any of these outcomes could be fatal for your family or yourself. During a boiler service, a gas engineer checks every part of the boiler to make sure no flammable gas can leak out. They also check the functioning of the boiler to ensure it does not produce poisonous carbon monoxide, which is a byproduct of incomplete combustion. A regularly serviced boiler that is working well produces only carbon dioxide, which is non-toxic, and water vapour.

2. Save Money

Boilers that undergo annual servicing often work more efficiently than boilers that are neglected. As a result, regularly serviced boilers use less energy to provide the same amount of home heating. Your energy bills could reduce significantly as the result of an annual service, leaving you with more money in your pocket to spend on other things. The value of the savings could be more than the cost of the boiler servicing.

3. Lower Chance of Breakdown

Dealing with a boiler breakdown can be hugely inconvenient. You could be left without heating and even without hot water if your home has a combination boiler. To avoid having to drop everything and call around to find an emergency boiler repair service, you could schedule a maintenance check now. During a regular boiler service, a skilled engineer checks all parts of the boiler to ensure they are working well. If any problems are brewing, they can fix them before they become more serious.

4. Protect Your Boiler Warranty

Most boilers come with a warranty that guarantees that the boiler will provide you with a certain number of years of reliable service. To keep your warranty valid, you need to follow the specified schedule of boiler servicing, which usually involves having a professional check over your boiler once a year. A valid warranty could save you a huge amount of money if your boiler breaks down and needs to be replaced, so it is definitely worth complying with the conditions that it sets out.

Reach out to a professional who provides boiler servicing to get started.
