When should I have my boiler serviced?

Boiler servicing is designed to help maintain your boiler and keep it running efficiently and safely.

There is no specific time to have a boiler serviced but below are a few tips to help you pick a time that is best for you!

It is best to have your boiler serviced at least once a year. An annual boiler service gives you the chance to inspect the boiler thoroughly and ensure all parts continue to work properly and could prevent potential boiler failure by identifying problems early. An annual boiler service is also advised because numerous boiler manufacturers only uphold their warranties if you have an annual service record.

If you don’t know when your boiler was last serviced and want to book one in, we recommend that you book one in for the summer months. A summer boiler service means that your boiler can be prepared to deal with the colder months. It has had all its vital checks before it will work its hardest. A summer boiler service also means that if you do need to have your boiler turned off for any period of time, you won’t have to suffer in a cold home as hopefully you won’t be using the heating during this time!

Moving house is also a good time to book a boiler service. As there are no legal requirements for sellers to complete a boiler service before they leave a property, you may not know when the boiler last had a complete service. This is why we suggest you book one once you’ve moved in to give you peace of mind that your boiler is equipped to keep you warm and comfortable!

Lastly, if you start to hear strange noises coming from your boiler or you’re concerned about your boiler’s efficiency, then we would always suggest you book in a boiler service. One of our trained engineers can take a look and see if there are any parts that need replacing or cleaned to help get your boiler operating as efficiently as possible.
