Gas Boiler Service Essex

If you have a gas boiler in your home, you should understand how important proper maintenance and serving is.

A working boiler brings many positives to your home. It provides hot water for bathing as well as hot water for washing the dishes and cleaning clothes. Without a working boiler, many important elements of your home are affected. The hot water works to kill germs and bacteria and prevent illnesses or diseases and infections from spreading.

Furthermore, the heat generated by the boiler is used to operate radiators throughout the house. This will keep households warm and comfortable during winter and can also dry clothes faster, especially if you do not have the option to air dry clothes.

A boiler service is used to keep your boiler working at maximum efficiency. It ensures that the pressure remains at a safe level and there are no leaks that could pose a danger to your home or other property, such as schools and offices.

By having your boiler serviced regularly, you can avoid common problems, such as malfunctions. A boiler service will also keep the unit within its warranty and extend its lifespan to reduce problems later down the line.

Dangers of a faulty boiler

  • Health threats such as carbon monoxide poisoning through gas leaks
  • Fires and explosions
  • Poor hygiene when cleaning dirty dishes and clothes

Potential costs from the faulty or inefficient operation can also pose a danger. Your boiler may consume too much energy and increase your utility bills. It can also cause severe damage to your home, especially from water damage as well as both cosmetic and structural problems within the house following a breakdown.
