Importance of a Boiler Service
Regular boiler servicing is extremely important to not only give you peace of mind over the functionality of your boiler but also to ensure that you do not suffer an unexpected boiler breakdown. If you carry out regular servicing, recommended to once per year then you can have one of our professional team have a look at your boiler as well as carry out all of the checks that can identify if your boiler is damaged. This is great for general checks such as releasing trapped air in your radiators as this is a common issue that can be rectified during our servicing. We can also analyse how wear and tear has affected your boiler as this is an aspect that you cannot really gauge unless carrying out boiler servicing. Your boiler is under almost constant use and it is therefore very much important to keep your boiler under good repair and regular servicing is the best way to ensure that this is happening.
Causes of Boiler Damage or Breakdown
Due to the fact that a boiler is not used as often in the summer months, one of the main reasons that a boiler can break in the winter is because it suddenly comes under a lot more use. Although you will still be using hot water in the summer you will most likely not be using the heating and this means that heating issues can arise undetected. You will not know for example if a radiator is not turning on or heating up if it is not being used. Other issues can occur such as air being trapped in radiators and this will also lie undetected during the summer months. A good way to check for this is to also run your heating at periods throughout the summer for a short while, to check that your heating is still working as expected. Other aspects such as damage to the boiler will require a service or repair to rectify which is why it is very much recommended to hire our team to carry out a boiler service or repair if you are unsure as to what the issue is with your boiler.
Seasonal Boiler Servicing
The November edition of our blog looks into the importance of having a boiler service carried out, especially during the winter.
The winter period is always a busy time, especially for boiler repairs and servicing. As we previously discussed, boilers are being re-activated after the summer and now that it is getting much colder, households are starting to use their boilers very frequently – especially for central heating. This puts additional strain on your boiler and if underlying problems existed with your boiler before it was switched back on, these could still be undetected. As boiler servicing companies and plumbers are often snowed under due to a number of boilers that can malfunction during the winter, a boiler service is a fantastic way to check that your boiler is working as intended before a disaster can occur. Heaven forbid that your boiler breaks down during the winter but it can be very difficult to have a plumber repair your boiler straight away due to an increased amount of emergencies in the winter. Having your boiler serviced is an ideal way to prevent this from happening as well as letting you know that everything is in order. As your boiler is under a lot of strain, especially in the run-up to Christmas; it’s therefore highly recommended to have a boiler service carried out if you are unsure about the wear of your current boiler. If you’ve been thinking that a strange noise is coming from the boiler or you are doubting that your boiler is sound then contact our team today to arrange for a boiler service.
Reasons Why You Need a Boiler Service
The February edition of our boiler service blog post takes an in-depth look into the reasons as to why you need to have a boiler service (at least once annually)
We’ve already discussed the diagnostic advantages of having your boiler served. Arranging a boiler service ensures that your boiler is in good condition and won’t break down suddenly. There are also other reasons as to why you will want to consider a boiler service. Arguably one of the most important reasons to have your boiler serviced is for safety and peace of mind. For gas boilers, they are extensively checked for leaking gas and other issues that may be present. If there’s a leak in the flue pipe for example then it could be producing carbon monoxide, a highly dangerous gas that is toxic. Not only does having your boiler serviced ensure that it’s checked for safety, it also lets you know that your boiler is in working order so you don’t have to worry about your boiler. As we touched upon, older boilers may be susceptible to damage as they may be worn down due to extensive use. If you have an older boiler that’s been in operation for extended periods of time then you’ll definitely need to have your boiler serviced. If there’s strange rattling or something doesn’t sound right in your boiler then again it’s recommended to have a boiler service carried out. But what are the other reasons as to why arranging a boiler service in Newcastle is important?
Further Reasons to Have a Boiler Service Arranged
It’s been very cold recently with blizzards seen across the country. It would be a nightmare if one night after a particularly cold day that your heating and hot water wasn’t working. Having a boiler service can protect you from any unexpected and unpleasant boiler emergencies. If your pipes also become cold and suddenly heated then this can be dangerous for the integrity and durability of your pipe systems. This poses a risk if your boiler stops working and then decides to work again. Rapid heating of pipes during the cold weather can cause them to burst. Your boiler will likely control the hot water and heating of your home so a broken down boiler will cause cold showers and a lack of warm water for washing up and other uses. If you have a combo boiler then the expansion vessel will lose pressure over time. This needs to be reset and often can only be carried out in a boiler service. Should you have a newer boiler then boiler servicing also include efficiency checks which can be checked and adjustments can be made to the boiler. As a rule of thumb, boilers from the last 11 years or so will be highly efficient ‘new style boilers.’ So if you think that it’s time to have your boiler service in Newcastle arranged then why not contact our friendly team? We can arrange a boiler service as well as ensure that your boiler is safe during the winter months!
