Why you should get your commercial boiler regularly serviced

With this years cold weather seemingly behind us, our poor boilers can finally get some well-earned rest, but that doesn’t mean we’re in the clear just yet. As it stands, the UK is one of the largest markets for boilers in the world and as such we have huge dependency on our mechanical friends all year round.

If you want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your boiler then you need to know that having it regularly serviced is a great way to keep your business running smoothly and efficiently all year round. So why should you get your commercial boiler regularly serviced?

Energy Efficiency

Naturally, one of the biggest reasons you should be having your boiler regularly serviced is to make sure you’re not wasting money on heating that you simply don’t need. If you feel that your boiler is costing you a small fortune each month, or that your business still feels a little too chilly, then it might be time to get your boiler checked.

There are a number of reasons that a boiler might not be performing as well as it should but one of the big ones is simply a lack of efficiency. The older your boiler is, the more likely it is to experience wear and tear, this can lead to problems such as using more fuel than you actually need. If you don’t want your boiler eating into your margins then having it properly serviced can eliminate fuel wastage, ensuring you’re getting what you pay for.


The last thing you want is an unsafe business. Having your boiler regularly serviced is the best way to ensure that everything is running safely, minimising any potential risks to your employees, customers or your business premises.

An un-serviced boiler is not only prone to breaking down or costing you money, but leaving it in disrepair for too long can cause real damage to your location and your health. According to stats released by the British Government, Carbon Monoxide poisoning, one of the more common problems with faulty boilers, leads to the admittance of 4,000 people to A&E and 50 deaths every year.

Peace of Mind

All in all, a boiler maintenance check will give you a real sense of peace of mind. Knowing that the hub of all your heating is running smoothly and efficiently will let you sit back, relax, and focus on your business.

Whether you’re cutting costs on your heating, keeping your employees safe, or pre-empting any possible future repairs. By having your commercial boiler regularly serviced you can significantly reduce the many headaches that often come hand in hand with improper maintenance.
