Is an annual boiler service necessary?

Boilers are an absolute necessity for any household, but they often breakdown and need repairing. To keep them happy, healthy and fighting fit, we recommend getting an annual boiler service.

However, if you’re still asking yourself the question ‘Do I need to get my boiler serviced?’, here are just some of the many reasons why it is so important.

Safety first – Carbon Monoxide can kill

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that is produced when fuel doesn’t burn properly, usually from badly fitted or poorly maintained appliances.

You can’t see, smell or taste carbon monoxide - which is why it is so often called "the silent killer". Carbon monoxide poisonings have increased by 32% since 2014. 

We’d highly recommend getting your boiler serviced annually by a gas safe registered engineer to make sure your boiler is happy & healthy.

Valid boiler cover

If you have boiler cover in place, we'd recommend you read the small print - as you'll likely be liable for any issues if you don't have your boiler serviced annually. This is a standard for most cover plans as a service will ensure your boiler is healthy and shouldn't breakdown in the not too distant future. 

If you don't have a care plan in place, we offer a variety of Heating Care Plans that will help keep your boiler fighting fit.

These include:

  • Service Plan  Boiler service every year to ensure it’s working correctly
  • Gold Package  Includes: 3 call outs per year, annual service, carbon monoxide test.
  • Platinum Package  Includes: Unlimited call outs, all parts and labour, repairs to the entire heating system, £500 towards a replacement boiler.
  • Boiler Plan Plus Package - For those with a Boiler still in warranty. Includes: Unlimited call outs, all parts and labour, repairs to the rest of your entire heating system.

Does an Annual Service Help Maintain your Warranty?

If your boiler comes with a warranty make sure you check the small print. In most cases, your warranty is only valid if you get your boiler serviced annually.

So, if you skip out on the yearly check-up, you won’t be covered for future breakdowns or repairs.
