Your central heating boiler is a very important part of your home,
it supplies you with continuous hot water throughout the day and night and in the colder
months of the year keeps your home nice and warm, so then
The answer to that question is quite common; it all boils down to cost.
The average for an annual boiler service cost will vary depending on what part of the UK you live in.
the rest of the UK from around £65 – £80, but these figures are only a guide.
The thing is most people tend to forget to have the central heating boiler serviced because it’s working fine,
then if it fails start to complained that it’s a rubbish boiler.
all they had was a burner, a thermocouple and a thermostat to go wrong,
the most common problem with them was they would soot up and need a good clean out, this boiler would go on forever.
they should be serviced at least once a year.
These new style boilers are designed to be economical and friendly to the environment.
I had a customer recently telling me that she paid good money for her new condensing central heating
boiler and that it had a 7-year warranty, and that it did not need to be serviced as the warranty covered everything.
I asked to see her paperwork to just verify if she had a service contract with the warranty,
all she could show me was a piece of paper saying she had a 7-year warranty and that was that.
her answer was the boiler was not working and could I fix it under the warranty.
I explained that any central heating boiler needs to be serviced regular and as hers was 5 years old it had basically gone beyond economical repair
If it had been serviced then the parts that were gone may have been picked up on the service or even prevented them from failing.
Like said at the start of this article the central heating boiler is a very important part of the home these days,
when it breaks we are lost without it.
If you are now thinking I must get that boiler serviced, then go about it the right way,
only use a Gas Safe Registered Installer or Company.
We all have friends who are a lot cheaper, but the law states you must be gas safe registered to work on any gas appliance. Be Wise, Be Safe...
