You may assume that over the Summer months you can turn your boiler off and forget all about it, however, this really isn’t recommended the below will explain why you should get a summer boiler service.

Preventative actions

Although you probably won’t need the heating on over Summer, we recommend that if you have turned your boiler off, turning it on every so often to prevent the parts from seizing up. It’s worth turning your boiler on for a short burst every 3-4 weeks.

If you have an older boiler with a pilot light, it is worth switching it off to prevent the boiler burning gas, however, newer boilers tend to have a standby mode. Combi boilers often have a Summer/Winter, so you can set it accordingly. Systems with a thermostat can be turned right down with just the water set to come on.

The Summer is actually an ideal time to get your boiler serviced. This service will ensure it is turned on, cleaned out, and any potential issues identified and resolved, during a season when it’s not vital you have it working.
