Benefits of looking at plumbing and boiler issues NOW

Dear All,

We hope you are very well and enjoying the lovely weather!

With lockdown being lifted and things returning relatively back to normal, this summer has, so far, started out very well for us. Certainly, with the summer to enjoy, now is not the time to think about servicing your boiler or having your plumbing checked...

...Or is it?

Believe it or not, the summer months are the best time to replace and/or service your boilers and to give your whole plumbing system an MOT.

A boiler is an important investment and replacing it can be quite costly if it breaks down during those winter months. Deciding to replace or service your boiler now could be more beneficial than in the winter for the following reasons:

1. Engineers are less busy during the summer

Winter is one of the busiest months for boiler repair as the cold weather means that they are more likely to break down if they haven't been serviced for a while. This means that winter months are peak times for the engineers and therefore you will be more likely to wait around for an appointment. During the quieter summer months, you'll be much more likely to get an appointment that suits you and at a lower call out rate!

2. No nasty surprises during the winter

By replacing your boiler now, or even having it serviced, you are much less likely to have an emergency breakdown in the winter months. Especially for landlords, this will mean your tenants are not waiting around for an engineer to arrive and you have less unwanted, emergency repair costs.

3. Stay warm whilst your boiler is being replaced

If your boiler breaks down during winter, not only will you need to wait for an engineer to attend, but you will also need to wait for it to be replaced, which can take a few days. This means you will be living in a very cold property whilst you wait! If you arrange to have it replaced during these summer months, you're guaranteed to be cosy and warm whilst you wait for your brand new boiler.

4. You can save on costly winter bills

Most modern boilers are much more efficient so by replacing your current boiler, you will be helping to cut down those costly bills during the winter months. New boilers are also much quieter and more cost effective than the older versions and will give you much more control over heating.
