How Often Should Central Heating Be Serviced?

by | 18/ 11/ 21

If you have central heating in your home, you are going to want to ensure you keep it in a good condition all year round. Whatever the climate you live in, you never know when you might need to put the heating on. One of the important things to bear in mind here is having your central heating serviced annually to maintain it’s working condition.

Here at Lonsdale Plumbing and Heating, we have set prices for the service of gas, oil and LPG heating systems, so you can rest assured the price will be the same at whichever point in the year your service is due.

Central Heating Annual Service

Ideally, you should get your central heating serviced at least once a year. This will probably be sufficient, but should you use it more or think that you might need it again you can always have that done as necessary. 


One of the top reasons you should ensure you get your central heating services annually is to ensure it is working safely. When a boiler is not working properly, it is more likely to leak carbon monoxide, a lethal toxin that you need to avoid at all costs. This odourless, invisible poison can be fatal, so this is a hugely important consideration.

Save Money

As with most things in life, if you properly care for your boiler and your whole heating system, then you are going to find that you save money in the long run. You will have fewer issues, meaning fewer payments for repairs and it will be more viable to have it serviced.

Making It Routine

The best way to ensure that you keep on top of your servicing is to make a routine of it. If you have a service with us we will automatically book another service for a year’s time and contact you near that date to remind you and fix a time that suits you.

Choose Carefully

Also be aware that you have to choose carefully when it comes to who is actually performing your central heating servicing. It has to be a plumber that you trust, a qualified and approved professional that you know will do the job right. Always check that your plumber has the correct authorisations from Gas Safe or OFTEC to work legally on your boiler. Choose carefully, and you are going to be much happier with the results.

Get An Estimate for your Central Heating Service

Finally, always ensure that you are asking for a cost estimate before you have the work done. That allows you to gauge what’s fair, and know how much you can expect to pay out, which means you can budget for it much more easily. 

As you can see, it’s hugely important to get your central heating serviced, so do make sure that you are doing so. Contact us today for central heating servicing.
