17 Sep When Do You Need Your Boiler Servicing?
Many of us rely on our boiler. Whether you use yours to heat your house or to heat your water, it is fair to say that these appliances are certainly an integral part of our homes. So there is no wonder that many of us panic when we realise that the boiler has broken or needs repairing.
Thankfully, there is a way you can reduce the number of times you are faced with this emergency – you just need to make sure that you get your boiler serviced on a regular basis. Lots of boiler specialists offer this service to their customers. They will come around to your house and take a look at your boiler. By doing this, they will be able to make sure that it is in good working order. If there is anything that needs doing, such as minor repairs, the handyman will be able to work on it there and then, preventing it from becoming a major issue.
But how exactly do we know when our boilers need servicing? Here’s our handy guide to help you keep your appliance in the best of quality.
Your Boiler Is Very Old
More often than not, boilers last for around fifteen years. Regular maintenance can help to lengthen your boiler’s life, and this includes getting regular services. In fact, services become incredibly useful the older your boiler is. So, if you have a boiler that is older than ten years old and you can’t remember when it was last serviced, you should call your nearest specialist to arrange one as soon as possible.
There’s No Hot Water
Have you noticed that you don’t have any more hot water in your home? Or maybe your water isn’t getting quite as hot as it used to? This is probably all because of your boiler. Ideally, you need to call your local boiler specialist and arrange a service as soon as possible. That way, this problem can be nipped in the bud before it becomes too much of an issue for you. Leave it too late, and the repair bill could be very large!
Your Boiler Has A Low Energy Rating
Every modern boiler will come with an energy rating on a scale of A to G. If yours is any less than an A, you need to make sure it is getting serviced every year. The lower rating your boiler has means that it isn’t all that energy efficient. And this can affect the overall performance, something which a service can help to improve.
The Flame On Your Boiler Is Yellow
If the flame on your boiler is yellow rather than blue, it is a sign that your appliance is releasing carbon monoxide. This gas is known as a silent killer, and you will need to call our a handyman to stop this straight away. So make sure you are regularly checking the flame on your boiler, as it could be a sign that you urgently need to organise a service!
