‘Service in Summer’- the perfect time to get your central heating system serviced

Book your boiler service during the summer says trade association, the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council, HHIC. The advice comes as part of their plans to help; improve the UK’s domestic energy efficiency and save homeowners money.

Stewart Clements, Director of HHIC said “Having your boiler serviced annually is essential to ensure that it runs efficiently and safely. There is nothing worse than turning on your central heating system in October when the temperatures drop only to find a fault in the system. That’s why we recommend having the system serviced in the summer months so when the weather changes there are no nasty surprises.

A Gas Safe registered reliable tradesman will ensure that any components that are dirty, or any deposits that have built up, are cleaned, in addition they will check the pressure and general running of your boiler - all of which will make your boiler run more efficiently, thus saving you money on your annual gas bill.

A summer service will ensure you can relax throughout the colder months, knowing you can rely on your central heating system to simply do its job at the time it’s needed most.
