Boiler Service Brentford

Your boiler is the unsung hero of your home, providing warmth and comfort during the chilly months. To ensure it continues to work efficiently and safely, regular servicing is essential. At West London Plumbing, we’re your trusted experts for gas boiler installs, repairs, and servicing. In this blog post, we’ll answer the question: how often should you get your boiler serviced?


Annual Servicing: The Golden Rule

The general rule of thumb is to have your boiler serviced annually. This annual check-up is crucial for several reasons:

  1. Safety: A regular service ensures that your boiler is operating safely. Gas boilers can pose risks if not maintained properly, so it’s essential to have them inspected annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer, like the ones at West London Plumbing.
  2. Efficiency: Over time, boilers can become less efficient due to dirt buildup, wear and tear, or minor issues. Regular servicing keeps your boiler operating at its peak efficiency, which can save you money on energy bills.
  3. Preventing Breakdowns: Boiler problems often start as minor issues that can be detected and addressed during a service. By catching these problems early, you can prevent costly breakdowns and ensure uninterrupted heating.
  4. Warranty Compliance: Many boiler manufacturers require annual servicing to maintain the warranty’s validity. Neglecting this requirement could result in voiding your warranty.
  5. Peace of Mind: Regular servicing provides peace of mind. You’ll know that your heating system is in good working order, reducing the stress of unexpected breakdowns.


Signs That Your Boiler Needs Servicing Sooner

While an annual service is a good rule of thumb, there are instances where you should schedule servicing sooner:

  • Unusual Noises: If your boiler starts making strange noises, it’s a sign that something might be amiss.
  • Fluctuating Temperatures: If you notice inconsistent heating or hot water, your boiler may need attention.
  • Increased Energy Bills: A sudden spike in your energy bills could indicate that your boiler is not working efficiently.
  • Visible Leaks: Any visible leaks or drips around your boiler should be addressed immediately.
  • Pilot Light Issues: If the pilot light frequently goes out or changes color, it’s a cause for concern.
