The Importance of an Annual Gas Boiler Service

The important place boiler servicing occupy in people’s daily lives was again brought to the fore by the statement of SEAI, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, when it recommended that everyone should take advantage of boiler servicing at least once in every 12 months. Often, people only get to appreciate this advice when their traditional or condensing boilers stop working properly. A look at some of the benefits derivable from regular gas boiler servicing may help drive home this recommendation.

Electrical or mechanical appliances do not breakdown suddenly, little faults in these devices accumulates and eventually render the appliances unable to carry out their functions if not discovered and corrected in time. Money spent on repairs is usually huge. In some situations, the boilers may be damaged beyond repair. The massive price of brand new condensing boilers speak in clear terms the huge amount of money people lost annually by refusing to take advantage of gas boiler service firms around them. With just some few tokens, individuals can get this service and have their boilers function efficiently all year round.

Authorities say that about twenty people die annually by reason of carbon monoxide poisoning. This gas when allowed to build up in one’s home and inhaled over a period of time could give rise serious illness like brain damage. In extreme cases, it may lead to death; a similar situation could happen with an undetected leak in a boiler. Occupants of a home where such boiler is place will in no time be in danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular boiler servicing is about the only way to checkmate such occurrences.

Apart from reducing carbon emissions, a regular gas boiler service cuts down what people pay as fuel bills. The quantity of fuel consume by a boiler gets reduced with servicing; meaning some money will be saved in the process. A home with efficient heating system by reason of regular boiler servicing appreciates in market value. The likelihood of getting someone to buy it at a handsome price is very high should the owner decide to sell the home. Anyone will prefer paying more for a home with a well maintained heating system than for one without such facility.

Some people make the mistake of thinking that manufacturer’s warranties that come with their newly bought boilers reduce the importance of gas boiler service. People who have acted this way at one time or the other ended up paying exorbitantly for the repairs of their boilers before the expiration of the warranties. What happens is that on returning their faulty boilers manufacturers simply tell them that the warranty does not cover customers without regular boiler servicing plans. Perhaps, the other way such uninformed people can recoup money spent on repairs is by ensuring their insurance is valid with household products including boilers.

The quality of the gas boiler service provided by firms differs. Ensure the employees of the firm you settle are registered SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) contractors. A good gas boiler servicing firm will be able to correct whatever fault in a boiler.
