The Bank Holiday Weekend
Well today is the return to work for many of us after a nice long bank holiday weekend. Having had 2 bank holiday weekends has been wonderful and it really makes you appreciate the additional free time we get to spend with friends and family. It also provides a great opportunity to explore the beautiful part of the country we live in and take advantage of these places in Devon and Cornwall.
One thing in our homes that doesn’t have the luxury of a long weekend break are the gas boilers in our homes. Our boilers are there working away as and when we need them……or so we hope. We have had a lot of calls from customers whose boilers have unfortunately decided to pack up over the weekend leaving them caught out with no heating and hot water as many of the suppliers are closed over this period. Fortunately our vans hold extensive van stocks of boiler spares so we can repair boilers in one visit and leave our customers happy with heating and hot water.
When the boiler breaks and we attend to repair it a lot of customers ask if there was anything they could have done to prevent the fault and the truth a lot of the time is Yes.
Boiler Service – The best thing you can do is have your boiler serviced and maintained annually. This can help identify and potential faults before they occur at the most inconvenient of times.
New boiler installation – Replacing your boiler for a newer model can really give you peace of mind. Newer boilers are a lot more reliable and also come with a 10 year parts and labour guarantee so you don’t have to worry about any surprise bills when it’s comes too repairing.
Don’t ignore faults – sometimes boilers can make intermittent noises or cut out and this can be a sign of a boiler about to stop working. Please dont ignore these faults as you can plan your repair to suit you and prevent having pay an additional emergency call out fee that a bank holiday can often incur.
