Why should I have my boiler serviced?

At McQueen Heating servicing gas boilers in Glasgow is a job we carry out on a daily basis. With there being so many benefits to why this should be done we thought we would identify them for you.

There are many reasons as to why you should have your gas boiler serviced regularly, normally once every 12 months. One of the most important reasons would be to ensure that it is working safely and is posing no risk to anyone within your home/property, this would ensure there are no gas or water leaks plus no carbon monoxide escaping into the room in which the boiler is located. If you’re a landlord, you are required by law to have annual gas safety checks carried out on all gas appliances in your properties – your tenants’ safety is your responsibility.

It can also save you money even though you will be paying for the service to be carried out. Of course, the model of boiler you have, and how old it is, will determine just how energy efficient it can be, but improving your boiler’s efficiency will mean that it’ll use less gas to run, and will subsequently keep your gas bills lower by being maintained. Plus by maintaining your boiler regularly you will reduce the chance of it needing repaired in the future which is another financial benefit.

If you have a relatively new boiler then you should be having it serviced every 12 months as per manufacturer’s guidelines to maintain its warranty. If this is not carried out then your warranty will be void and any costly repairs that could arise would be at your expense. At McQueen Heating when we install a new boiler we make sure to highlight this and also offer our customers to be set up for yearly service reminders to lower the chance of it being forgotten about.
