You might think that summer is a funny time to be thinking about boilers – who wants to talk about heating and hot water when it’s over 20 degrees and you’re cooling yourself in the inflatable paddling pool? But it’s important to remember that when the cold weather hits the summer warmth will be a distant memory and you’ll be putting your boiler back to work (much like your children after the summer holidays)!
That’s why savvy homeowners are planning ahead and getting their boilers serviced and fitted now rather than waiting for the winter rush.
Stripping it down, there are two main reasons for getting a new boiler:
- Your old one is broken or on the blink
- Your old one is inefficient meaning your bills are sky high
Whilst it’s true that you are most likely to notice these things when it’s cold and your boiler is being used and abused, a simple service over the summer could save you a lot of hassle in the winter months when even the thought of no central heating and cold showers is enough to give you goosebumps! And if there’s an issue, or your boiler is not functioning to its fullest potential, you can then consider getting it replaced before the cold sets in.
Two reasons why there’s nothing worse than waiting until winter:
- Winter is the busiest time of year for heating engineers so you might struggle to find an available engineer at short notice.
- Winter is cold! Fact. Having a new boiler installed in the winter months means you could be left without heating or hot water for a couple of days. Get your boiler installed over summer and that’s an inconvenience you won’t have to worry about.
