How important is it to clean, repair and service your boiler?

Volatile energy prices will challenge any household heating budget, but there is one big outgoing that can be controlled - the need for a new boiler.

With care, a quality gas boiler should give 20 years of service, and nobody has cash to spare for allowing it to fail earlier than that.

So, delay that day by undergoing a regular boiler service and clean, thereby insuring it against breakdown and replacement.

How much does that peace of mind cost

With Swale Heating, such peace of mind costs as little as £7.50 a month by direct debit or £90 upfront and ensures your boiler operates safely, smoothly, and efficiently. This will deliver optimum heating and hot water from your outlay on fuel.

Other options even allow access to our customer portal so that you can easily book an engineer yourself and a date and time to suit you.

The average time the service will take is just half an hour so you can plan your day around the visit.

Try to avoid the ‘seasonal crunch’ too by having the boiler serviced during the warmer months: firstly, you’ll have more choice about when the engineer calls and, secondly, you will avoid finding out that your boiler has issues well before the cold weather sets in. Remember too that the UK has had a string of mild winters recently – the next one might end that pattern.

Tell me about the engineer’s visit

The engineer’s visit will cover all key components on your boiler, rectify any existing issues and highlight those which may arise later, plus the likely cost, and you will receive a useful report – it’s a little like having an MOT but for your boiler.

Just like your car though, that report might suggest that your boiler is nearing the end of its serviceable life, or you could save energy costs by installing a new unit with A-rated efficiency.

You can trust Swale Heating’s 50 years of delivering customer service to give you the best advice.
