Like any other appliance, boilers need to be properly maintained
Most boilers are so reliable that it is easy to take them for granted. If you have one in your home, it has probably kept you warm and comfortable for several years. You may not have even given it a second thought. However, no matter how reliable a boiler may be, it is still a piece of machinery that needs to be properly maintained.
For example, your boiler’s air vents need to be free of blockages so that it won’t have to work too hard in order to be able to warm your home. The more obstructed the vents, the harder it will be for the boiler to efficiently do its job. This will not only result in heating bills that are higher than necessary, it will also shorten its lifespan. Have your flues and vents checked regularly and have them cleaned if necessary.
You should also make sure that there is not an excessive amount of scale in the boiler – especially if you have hard water in your home. Again, too much scale will rob your boiler of efficiency.
