Preparing your Boiler for Summer

Preparing your Boiler for Summer

Posted on August 31, 2016

When the sun is shining and the days are long, boiler maintenance is probably the last thing on your mind. Most household boilers tend to sit undisturbed until autumn arrives and they are called back into action. In fact, summer is the perfect time to turn your attention to your heating system and start preparing your boiler for summer, even if it seem ages away. Here are a few reasons why now is a great time to turn your attention to boiler servicing.

You Can Take Your Time

When the boiler goes wrong in the depths of winter, every hour without it can feel like an emergency. What’s more, tracking down a plumber can be almost impossible because half the town are experiencing the same problems.

Whether your boiler has a problem or you just want to arrange a service, it’s much quieter during the summer. You’ll notice that you’re able to make an appointment with a specialist almost immediately.

Look Out for Funding Options

Winter boiler problems can be extremely expensive for the industry, and many businesses struggle to provide all their customers with the services they need in a reasonable time. Furthermore, many find that business is far slower in the summer. For this reason, there are many schemes, offers and funding options that encourage homeowners to bring their new boiler installation or servicing forward into the warmer part of the year. Take advantage of these – you can save serious money, especially if you’ve been putting it off for some time.

We all know that modern boilers are far more energy efficient than the old designs and better for the environment. Perhaps a financial incentive is all the encouragement you need to get started with preparing your boiler for summer.

It Could Save You Money in the Long Run

A boiler can last for up to thirty-five years, especially if a professional regularly services it. Small problems can quickly turn into big ones if undetected, rendering a perfectly usable boiler into one in need of replacing. Although the annual boiler serving may seem like an unnecessary outlay, by arranging regular check-ups you can remove the need for a new boiler and expensive boiler installation, saving you thousands of pounds in the long run.

While it’s tempting to spend the summer lounging in the garden, sipping on cocktails, now is a great time to save yourself a lot of hassle later in the year. Book a boiler service today, and you’ll thank yourself in the future.
