Why Do I Need an Annual Boiler Service?

All Guides   /   Why Do I Need an Annual Boiler Service?

Your boiler is a very technical piece of equipment that needs to be regularly serviced in order to remain safe, reliable and efficient. Only a Gas Safe engineer can carry this out, so booking an annual service through ProTech will ensure that your boiler is always running at peak performance.

Safety is key

If a boiler develops a fault, it could release carbon monoxide into your home. This is often called the silent killer, as you can’t see, taste or smell it, yet it will have a significant effect on your health, potentially causing death if enough is inhaled.

The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include dizziness, nausea, tiredness, confusion, stomach pain and shortness of breath. With prolonged exposure, these symptoms get worse and eventually prove fatal if it’s a large leak. This is why the NHS and the Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend an annual boiler service by a Gas Safe engineer.

Energy efficiency

An annual boiler service is a key way to achieve a greener home. When a boiler has been checked and fine-tuned so that it can deliver top performance, it won’t need to work as hard to heat the property. This lowers your energy consumption, which in turn reduces both your carbon footprint and your utility bills.

Fewer breakdowns

When a boiler is looked after by a Gas Safe engineer, it becomes far less likely to break down. In fact, through an annual service you should find that problems are few and far between, minimising disruption to your home. Our boiler cover comes with an annual service as standard, keeping your boiler in top condition whilst also protecting you from expensive bills in the event of an issue.

Extended lifecycle

As with all household appliances, boilers can’t live forever. Having said that, you surely want your boiler to last a fair while, which is why booking an annual service can save you a lot of money over the years. By visiting you annually to service the boiler, nip potential problems in the bud and offer practical advice, our engineers will ensure that your boiler continues to warm your home for as long as possible.

Keep your warranty valid

If your boiler were to break down and it hadn’t received an annual service, you could find that the manufacturer says that the warranty no longer applies. Rather than risking a large bill for a replacement sooner than required, a very affordable annual service by ProTech will keep your boiler within its manufacturer guarantee until the day it expires.

Be prepared for the winter months

A broken boiler in summer is annoying, but in winter it can be incredibly stressful and even cause your home to become dangerously cold and damp. An annual service helps to keep the boiler running smoothly throughout the year, plus our range of ProCare Plans are here to keep you protected should a breakdown occur at any point during the year.
