    Why should I maintain my LPG boiler?

    You should have your LPG boiler serviced at least once a year. 

    This will ensure it’s running safely and efficiently for the heating season ahead.

    It also validates any manufacturer’s warranties you may have left on the appliance. 

    Regular servicing will minimise the risk of any breakdowns as well as help lengthen the lifespan of your boiler too. 

    Servicing of your LPG boiler keeps you safe and healthy.

    Carbon Monoxide can be a real danger to everyone with any fuel-burning appliance in the home. 

    The toxic gases produced are odourless, colourless and tasteless, meaning that most don’t even know they are being poisoned. 

    Modern boilers produce condense which is acidic.

    This could leak on to the flue pipe causing a carbon monoxide leak.

    Regularly servicing of your boiler ensures it is combusting safely and efficiently, minimizing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    And for the elderly, vulnerable or those with young children, ensuring you have a working boiler is a must for the months ahead. 

    While to most of us, the boiler breaking down is an inconvenience, for some, a lack of heating and hot water can have severe health and financial repercussions.

    It’s not just homeowners who need to take note of LPG boiler Servicing.

    But if you service your boiler now, not only do you ensure it is working correctly (making it less likely to experience a break down.

    Once you turn the heating back on in the autumn), you can also choose when to have it serviced on your terms. 

    No panic, no sitting in the cold, no having to wash in freezing water.

    Servicing your boiler saves you money

    Maintaining an appliance will almost certainly save you money in the long run.

    The cost of regularly maintaining an appliance can be significantly less than the cost of repairing.
