After publishing a couple of polls a few weeks ago onto Facebook and Instagram and finding that 45% of the people don't remember to get their boiler serviced regularly, we wanted to give you a friendly reminder about why that might not be such a good idea.

Although it isn't a legal requirement to get our boilers serviced every year, it is good practice in our lives because it can pick up on issues before they escalate, avoiding future malfunctions.
A good time of year to get your boiler serviced is in summer, during the summer months boilers tend not to be in use and this makes it a really important time to have your boiler servicing done before switching it back on during winter.
