Why do you need to book a boiler service in Canterbury and the surrounding areas?

Once a year, your boiler should be serviced. This not only guarantees that it will continue to function efficiently and securely for the next year, but it also validates any manufacturer's warranties you may have on your boiler. Regular boiler maintenance decreases the probability of a breakdown and increases the life of your boiler. 

Your family's safety and health are ensured by boiler services. Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur in anyone who has fuel-burning equipment in their home. Most people are unaware they are being poisoned because this lethal gas has no odour, colour, or taste. An annual boiler service ensures that the fuel is used safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Having a running boiler during the winter months is crucial for the elderly, the fragile, and those with small children. While most people find a broken boiler unpleasant, for others, a lack of heat and hot water can have serious health and financial consequences. 

Everyone, not just homeowners, must keep their boilers in good working order. Landlords are required by law to obtain a gas safety certificate and ensure that their boilers operate safely. A boiler service is necessary once a year and is a relatively inexpensive item of maintenance to perform.

A serviced boiler lasts longer! By keeping your boiler serviced, you can increase the lifespan of your boiler and postpone the cost of a new boiler.

When should my boiler be serviced?

Boilers must be maintained once a year, even if they come with a guarantee and insurance. If you are a landlord, you must service any gas appliances in your property whenever a new tenant moves in and provide them with a copy of a Gas Safe certificate. 

Also, getting your boiler serviced is the ideal time to schedule your service because it ensures that your boiler is ready for the winter season and has fewer chances of breaking down on you, especially when you need it the most.
