Why you should book your boiler service now rather than later

Homeowners in Harpenden often do not get their boiler serviced on an annual basis. Vital Plumbers are here to advise you that this could be costing you much more than it should be on top of your gas bill every year! In this blog post, we outline why you should be thinking about getting your boiler serviced now more than ever. 

We all try to save money where we can, and it is understandable that some homeowners in Harpenden may put off getting their boiler serviced as regularly as every year because they may see it as an unnecessary expense. Vital Plumbers are about to take you through why you should think about getting your boiler serviced now!

1. Your boiler is used far less during the warmer months, so doesn't need as much attention

As the warm weather of the summer months swirls around Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and other surrounding areas your central heating system is likely to be used far less. That means that as soon as the temperature drops and you feel a lot colder in your home, you will need to rely on your boiler to be able to manage to keep you warm and cosy through the cold. That's why now is the best time to get your boiler serviced before the colder winter months creep in! 

2. Solve minor problems now, avoid larger, expensive problems later

The biggest benefit to getting your boiler serviced before winter is that if any serious damage occurs, issues can be discovered and addressed then, and minor issues can be stopped at the source. This means that you will avoid problems that are not treated at the earliest stage and as a result, you will likely save large amounts on expensive repairs that you may not have avoided had you not treated the minor problem at the earliest stage.

3. Service your boiler when the weather's still warm

Across the country turn their boilers off during the summer, which could easily result in some components of the boiler stops working. Getting these looked into by a professional, Gas Safe registered engineer at Vital Plumbers will help ensure that your boiler is ready for the winter. 

However, there are times when a service reveals a potential problem, and if this occurs during the summer, you'll have plenty of time to get the repairs completed before you need to use the boiler on a regular basis. In the worst-case scenario, if you require a boiler replacement, you have some time to plan ahead to ensure that the work is completed before the weather gets cold.

4. Much shorter waiting times and more availability right now! 

As soon as it starts to get colder again, homeowners start to panic and rush to get their boiler serviced in the winter months. As a result, it is highly likely that it will become difficult to book your appointment for the time and date that you require. 

Consider for a minute how busy gas engineers are likely to get in the autumn... As boilers all across Welwyn Garden City, Harpenden, St Albans and other surrounding areas are being turned on for the first time in months, and some may not even be working properly or at all. This is likely to result in a massive panic and calls to local heating engineers across the local area in Harpenden as homeowners panic to book their annual service before heating engineers schedules start to fill up.

Instead of waiting until the last minute, book your service today to avoid having a broken boiler in a cold home!
