Tips to Avoiding a ‘Boiler-spoiler’ Winter
As the mercury in our thermometers begins to take the regular plunges that are usually associated with this time of the year; what are the key, important things one should consider when taking into account our winter boiler usage?
If the previous winter is a barometer, then unfortunately the nearer we get to the end of the year, the more we will feel the brunt of the winter chill. In addition, with one foot already in the early days of the Christmas period and the other foot making tentative steps to join in on the festivities, the last thing needed is an unexpected and unwelcomed spend on boiler repairs.
Firstly, maintenance really is the key here. Getting your boiler regularly serviced may seemingly be an unnecessary financial chore on the surface of it however, giving your boiler the regular attention annually can potentially save money in the future as any intermittent issues can be identified during a check up; and there is truth in the age old adage ‘prevention is better than a cure’ as in this instance, this really is the truth, as an annual check up does no harm whatsoever.
Secondly, make sure your servicing and any resulting repair works are carried out by a Gas Safety registered engineer. As the need for engineers’ increases at this time of the year, it is no coincidence that the cowboys who offer to do the job for cheap also rear their heads with a bit more frequency as well. With unregistered engineers who offer you services at below the market prices, you can be sure that their work is also more than likely to be below the required standards.
