With the coldest days of the year behind us and summer well and truly on its way, the last thing that you’re likely to think of is having your boiler serviced.
However, despite the fact your boiler may not be getting quite as much use over the coming months, this may be an even better time to have it checked over, identify any issues and get things fixed before it’s time to turn up the heating once again.
After all, we’d recommend that everyone has their boiler serviced at least once a year in order to keep it in optimal condition. So, is the summer the best time to call in Birmingham Boiler Repairs to give your boiler a check-up?
Here are just a few reasons why we’d recommend having your boiler serviced this summer.
It May Save You Money
We all know the saying ‘Prevention is better than the cure’ – and this is certainly true when it comes to boiler repairs, too.
In the majority of cases, leaving a boiler fault undetected could lead to the problem getting worse over time – especially once the winter months set in and you find that you are using your boiler a lot more often. You may leave yourself in the position to be faced with a much larger repair bill than if you’d have discovered the fault earlier on.
By having your boiler serviced over the summer, you may be able to catch these faults before they get any worse, meaning that the cost to repair the fault will likely be lower, too.
Repairs Will Be Less Inconvenient
If you do need repairs on your boiler, these will likely be far less inconvenient during the summer months.
If you catch a fault that needs repair during the winter, you be leaving yourself open to days – sometimes weeks – without working heating. Needless to say, this is far less inconvenient during the warm summer months when your boiler isn’t in use quite as often. Nobody wants to be caught short without central heating or hot water at a time of year when their home needs it the most.
By having your boiler serviced during the summer, you will be able to have repairs organised for a time when they are less likely to interfere too much with the use of your central heating during a cold winter.
Shorter Wait Times
If you are in need of a boiler service or repair during the winter, you are more likely to be one of many homes in the very same position.
Due to the higher number of boiler service appointments and increase in need for boiler repairs, plumbing and heating experts such as those here at Birmingham Boilers may be stretched a little more thin. With that in mind, you may find yourself struggling to get an appointment quickly – sometimes you may be facing quite a wait.
With a lower number of boiler faults reported during the summer, plumbing and heating experts are generally not in quite such short supply, meaning that you may be able to get an appointment far quicker.
By booking an appointment to have your boiler serviced during the summer, you’ll likely find that your plumber has better availability – and that they can return faster to fix any problems if needed.
Ensure Your Boiler Runs At Maximum Efficiency
As part of your annual service, your plumber will generally check your boiler’s working efficiency level to ensure that everything is in good order.
If a boiler is not working to maximum efficiency, it will use more fuel whilst switched on, often leading to an increase in your heating bill. By ensuring that your boiler is running at maximum efficiency during the summer months, you’ll be able to rectify any faults in your boiler’s efficiency levels before you begin to use it much more frequently.
Needless to say, this may also mean that you see a reduction in your total heating bills over the winter, too.
