The key to keeping your heating and plumbing systems working well is regular maintenance. A well-maintained system is less prone to breakdown and emergency repairs, and will provide efficient service for many years to come. If you’ve just installed a new boiler on your heating system, take advantage of an annual service plan offered by the installer or a local plumber to ensure that it’s maintained properly for best service.
Getting your central heating system serviced regularly will save you money in the long run. An annual maintenance check will ensure that your boiler is safe and running at peak efficiency. An engineer will check your flues, examine the heat exchanger for cracks and check temperature settings in addition to completing a schedule of checks to be sure that the boiler is operating safely and efficiently. An annual tune up and maintenance check can reduce your annual heating costs by 3-4%.
If your boiler is a gas boiler, you could be saving more than money when you schedule an annual inspection and servicing visit by a CORGI registered service engineer. CORGI recommends an annual inspection and servicing of all gas appliances to be sure that they are in safe operating condition.
Each year, 30 people in the UK die of carbon monoxide from faulty gas appliances. Hundreds more may be living with headaches and other symptoms caused by sub-lethal levels of carbon monoxide and other fumes in their homes. Keep your family safe and healthy by scheduling annual servicing for all of your gas appliances and plumbing. You’re not just saving money, you’re saving lives.
