Get your boiler checked

February is the peak month for boiler repairs, which rises over 63% compared to the monthly average.

With the Met Office recently issuing a severe weather warning for the UK, it is estimated that more boiler repair call outs will follow.

Prevention better than cure

With the average broken boiler costing almost £500 to fix, it could be a very good time to have your checked and serviced as prevention is better than cure.

Being caught out without heating in the winter can be particularly unpleasant especially if you have young children.

Top tips to maintain your boiler

Keep your heating on low: Sudden cold temperatures can freeze your boilers external condensate pipe which could cause your boiler to stop working. Insulating the pipes can help or try keeping the heating on low when it’s very cold.

Bleed your radiators: If your property isn’t getting as warm as you think it should be, there may be air trapped inside the heating system. Releasing air from the system is simple but you will need a key which can slot into the radiators bleed valve. If you still have a problem after doing this, you may need to call in the professionals.

Keep your boiler maintained: Make sure you service your boiler and keep it maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Check regularly for any warning signs such as leaks, cracks or noises as the sooner you can identify a problem, the easier it will be to fix.
