The Little Chieftain boiler.

Our team at ST Heating Services think that during the warmer months, it’s a good time to give your boiler a quick once over. With demand for heating at its lowest, it is the perfect time to take advantage of lower costs and give your boiler a health check.

Why is this week and the rest of the summer months a good time? Here’s why.

Firstly, due to the warmer weather, demand for heating is obviously at its lowest. Instead of central heating, you are most likely to put the air conditioning unit on. Secondly, with productivity quieter in the summer months (due to staff holidays), the likelihood of affecting production is less damaging than, say late March.

Therefore, the best time for a boiler health check is when you least need to put the heating on. In the midst of winter, a failing boiler is the last thing you need. It is best to act now.

By having annual maintenance for your boiler in the summer months, you are providing your business with peace of mind. You will also ensure that in winter (if there is any) it takes less time to get the boiler up and running again because all components work at maximum efficiency during annual maintenance inspection time. You need your boiler to be able to take on all the extra heating requirements which winter inevitably brings, providing the extra heating with more running hot water demands too.

In the midst of winter, a failing boiler is the last thing you need. It is best to act now. By having annual maintenance for your boiler in the summer months, you are providing your business with peace of mind.

A boiler service will be able to detect if the boiler has any faults – If there are issues with your system, it is better for them to find out now rather than in the winter when you have no heating. You are also more likely to get a cheaper quote because demand for heating is at its lowest. The summer months also provide a perfect opportunity to review your current heating system. If you are looking at moving over to biomass or LPG, the summer months would be an ideal time because there will be no disruption in services and it’s cheaper than doing so over winter when demand is high.

We at ST Heating Services not only install boilers. We also offer boiler servicing, repair, and our boiler health check comes in the form of planned maintenance works. All inspections and health checks will be undertaken at a time to best suit your business.

Once we’ve undertaken our preventative maintenance works, your boiler will be ready for the year ahead. You can contact us for a one-off health check or hire us for a boiler maintenance contract. We can also offer advice on improving your boiler’s energy efficiency. All quotes are free and on a no-obligation basis.
