1 in 5 boilers will breakdown this Winter
As the heating and gas engineers out there reading this will know, deep into winter as we now are, we are also now deep into the busy period for boiler malfunctions and breakdowns. This means a significant increase in work loads as last winter it is estimated that 1 in 5 boilers suffered a breakdown.
How can I reduce the chances of my boiler breaking down?
To reduce this risk, it is advisable to turn your central heating on for around 10 minutes each summer month. This will help prevent the system from clogging up because it ensures that the moving parts within it are being used. Getting your boiler serviced every year is also highly recommended. It is wise to find a reputable local or national boiler company to service your boiler around September.
They will send a Gas Safe Registered engineer to check your boiler is working safely and efficiently.The service will also uncover any underlying problems that may lead to a boiler breakdown which can be fixed giving you peace of mind throughout the winter.
Getting your boiler serviced just once a year can dramatically reduce risks
