Though perhaps not the most interesting of areas, it’s certainly important to understand the benefits of regular boiler servicing by a qualified professional.
Here are four reasons why you should regularly service your boiler:
The Register for Gas Installers in Ireland (RGII) states that your gas boiler needs to be serviced once a year, as recommended by the manufacturers, to ensure that it is operating efficiently and safely.
There are many different companies that offer boiler servicing but as Gas Networks Ireland’s memorable 2016 campaign featuring Daniel O’Donnell reminds us - not just anyone can carry out a boiler servicing! It’s important to always make sure that your gas installer is registered and the easiest way to do this is to find the closest one in your area using rgii.ie.
Prices for boiler servicing will vary from company to company and some boiler insurance policies will include boiler servicing at a discounted rate.
Generally, boiler servicing prices start around the €85-€90 mark.
If a one-off payment is too expensive for you, there are companies that offer options to pay in installments to take the sting out of annual boiler servicing.
There’s quite a bit of competition in the boiler servicing market so we recommend that you shop around before settling on a registered gas boiler installer to carry out your service.
Different companies will offer various incentives and discounts to sweeten the deal. For example, SSE Airtricity is currently offering a free Climote to anyone who signs up for a €99 boiler service before August 31st.
