Why your boiler needs a regular health check


As you get older, your body has a subtle (or painful) way of reminding you of the need to get your health checked regularly. However, boilers aren’t as communicative as your joints are. So the first time you realise there’s a problem is often when you suddenly have no hot water or heating.

Sometimes, you don’t even notice there’s a problem – things just start to go wrong gradually or very suddenly. Things like this:

  • Your heating bills gradually get bigger as your central heating stops working efficiently.
  • Your shower goes cold and your heating stops.
  • You’re faced with a massive repair bill in the middle of winter. 

Luckily, there’s no need to rush your boiler to A&E

A regular, expert boiler service from a reliable Gas Safe engineer can:

  • Prevent possible problems before they happen.
  • Stop a boiler breakdown disrupting your life.
  • Make sure your central heating is working efficiently.
  • Keep your energy bills as low as possible.

Your heating bills gradually get bigger as your central heating stops working efficiently.


We’ve recently joined forces with boiler experts, CORGI HomePlan to bring you boiler cover that not only protects you if your boiler breaks down, it also includes a free service each year to check it’s in good health. Sound interesting? Visit to find out more.
