A boiler that is not looked after will undoubtedly need to replaced within 5-6 years sometimes less.
These boilers produce condense which is acidic, should a leak happen, which it does over time.
One of the main reason for an annual boiler service, is the safety aspect.
When I say safety, I mean checking that the boiler flue is working and not leaking products of combustion.
Carbon monoxide is the answer, as we all know it is a silent killer.
When the flue is connected together they are joined by rubber seals.
If these seals don’t fully engage, over time they will leak condense, which will eventually corrode the outer flue pipe.
So you can see, a boiler service is essential.
Only a person or company who is Gas Safe Registered can service the boiler.
Should you use someone who is not registered, you could end up being prosecuted.
