Does your heating need some care and attention?

◄ Back to all articles

Winter is coming to an end, the days are getting longer and warmer, and your heating is on less – now is the perfect time for a service. A regular service reduces your energy consumption and ensures that your heating will keep you nice and warm again next winter without problems.

In the winter months, your heating works really hard. This can lead to a build-up of dirt, which reduces the efficiency of your system. Even slight deposits and inaccurate settings can adversely affect operation and increase energy consumption, which in turn, leads to unnecessary costs. This is why you should consider a service when spring arrives.

Regular servicing pays for itself several times over

It goes without saying that you would book your car into the garage for a full service at regular intervals. However, a heating system is often neglected and left to its fate. Over many operating hours, just like a car, the heating system will be subjected to wear, deposits and changes to settings. So a regular service of the system is extremely important. The specialist will assess the state of the heating system and inform the house owner of any possible problems or faults in good time – before a repair is no longer possible and the system has to be replaced completely. This prevents high costs, which you may not have included in your budget.

Regular servicing of the system means that you can be confident it will run reliably when the weather turns cold again. It also increases the boilers useful life, the system will retain its value and your investment will continue to pay off over several years.
