A survey published by Carillion Energy Services suggests that around 25 per cent of British households failed to regularly service their boilers.
The survey adds that the potential waste – expressed in economic terms – of neglecting an annual service could be as high as £400 million. Whilst the annual service is necessary for checking the safety of boilers, it can also help to ensure efficient operation. Inefficient boilers can add hundreds of pounds to central heating bills every year.
Vince Barry, the Marketing Manager of Carillion Energy Services Heating, said: “To keep a boiler operating at maximum efficiency you really need to have it serviced once a year. Most manufacturers recommend this and in fact it’s a requirement for most warranties.
