When it comes to keeping your boiler maintained, the more attention you can give it, the better. Having it running at peak performance levels will help cut down on energy costs, as well as reduce the amount of annual maintenance it needs; it will also help extend its lifespan.
That’s why the team from Toshack has collected some insight for you below. Here you’ll find some in-depth reasons why regular boiler service is essential, especially when it comes to your maintenance plan.
Determining the Efficiency of Your Boiler
Are you wondering how to determine the efficiency of your boiler? If so, you might first want to check your boiler’s user’s manual, which will often have its efficiency rating clearly listed. However, if you can’t find your old manual don’t fret, you can also check its efficiency by calculating how much oil it consumes on a monthly basis. Try comparing it to last month’s bill or its performance annually. If there’s a noticeable difference, it likely signifies a drop in efficiency. Scheduling a boiler service visit is also an easy way to check its efficiency.
Why Is Annual Boiler Service a Must?
When it comes to maintaining your boiler, one of the very best ways to do so is by investing in annual boiler services. As your boiler ages, it can become clogged with debris that needs to be cleaned to maintain its efficiency. Having it inspected regularly can help ensure it’s properly cleaned, as well as prevent issues that could cause costly repairs down the road. It will also help keep you safe, making certain there are no carbon monoxide issues. Depending on the type of boiler you have, annual service costs will vary, so it’s always best to get a quote from Toshack directly.
