The Importance of Boiler Servicing

Whether in a domestic or commercial property it is crucial to get the boiler serviced as it plays a key role in providing heating and warm water to the building.

At Integrity we understand how important it is for businesses to get their boilers serviced annually and here’s why:

Reduce Fuel Bills

Firstly, having a boiler serviced annually will help reduce your fuel bills as the engineer will ensure that the boiler is running as efficient as possible therefore not using excessive amounts of gas which in turn will not only reduce fuel bills but also cut your businesses carbon footprint.

Save on Repairs and Call Outs

Integrity believes that preventative is always better than reactive. Having planned preventative maintenance (PPM) will help you save costs in the long run as during a boiler service the gas safe engineer can spot any potential faults that may arise and can rectify any minor problems which saves money on call outs to repair the boiler once the issue materializes.

Keep Staff Happy

Keeping staff happy is at the top of almost every manager’s list and what better way to keep you staff morale and productivity high than providing them with a warm working environment. As we are entering the cold winter months it is important to ensure that your office is warm.

Health and Safety

Having a faulty boiler can have detrimental impacts on people’s health. In 2011 around 4,000 people go to A&E with carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning due to leaking boilers, 200 people are hospitalized and on average, 50 adults and children die. This statistic provided by the government emphasis the importance of having your boiler serviced annually as during the service the gas engineer will pick up on any potential issues that may arise and repair any leaks that are identified. Also, it is a legal requirement that all gas installations are deemed safe to use and that a gas safe certificate is issued.
