3 reasons to service your boiler this winter

As the weather starts to get colder, it's important to make sure your boiler is serviced and running smoothly. Although for many a boiler service may seem like an unnecessary extra cost, getting a regular annual check can actually prevent issues and save you money in the long term. Go Assist experts have listed the top 3 reasons why we believe it is integral to get your boiler serviced this winter.

Why is your annual boiler service important?

1. Catch/ prevent faults in your heating system early

Unless you’re a gas-trained boiler engineer yourself, it is unlikely you’ll notice a small problem with your heating system until it turns into a big, costly one. During an annual service, our engineers will be able to find and fix any underlying issues before it’s too late. From experience, we know that no matter how small the fault may seem, ignoring it could lead to a much bigger, expensive issue.

2. Stay safe and save money

Arguably one of the most integral purposes of a boiler service is to ensure your heating system isn't posing a danger to you and your household. Boilers are fuel-burning appliances that can release poisonous gases into your home – having an annual boiler service ensures you can relax with the peace of mind of knowing your boiler is safe.

But a boiler service isn't just keeping your peace of mind, it can also help keep pennies in your purse by working efficiently. This can be the difference between a hefty energy bill or the lowest possible price you could be paying.

3. Prolong the lifespan of your boiler

It’s no surprise that a healthy maintained boiler will most likely last longer than a boiler that hasn’t been serviced. The average lifespan of a boiler is 10 – 15 years, not only will regular servicing and maintenance help you reach this – but it will ensure you avoid a costly replacement bill.
