A routine check is all that is needed to avoid encountering these issues and therefore a homeowner's piece of mind is restored over the winter period
London, UK (PRWEB) August 7, 2009
Boilerguide, the UK's leading online resource for homeowners and heating engineers regarding all boiler related issues, has indicated that Heating Engineers across the country are likely to find themselves inundated with maintenance requests as of mid October.
The month of October encompasses the transition from autumn to winter, and the colder temperatures are a major factor in the reliability of boiler systems. Many homeowners make the decision to pay for a boiler service before the winter closes in so that any risks or consequences of a boiler breaking down over the winter are avoided.
The summer often presents a period of inactivity for boilers, as the warmer weather means that they are needed a lot less frequently. As a result of this inactivity homeowners can encounter problems with gas and oil condensing boilers in the opening few weeks of the winter period. A service in the autumn is a good way of ensuring that a boiler up to scratch when coping with extensive use on a regular basis.
David Holmes, Founder of Boilerguide, commented: "Homeowners are advised to have their boilers serviced shortly before the winter, as any problems that may arise from a boiler problem are likely to cause significant inconvenience not to mention discomfort if a home is left without heating and hot water as a result.
"A routine check is all that is needed to avoid encountering these issues and therefore a homeowner's piece of mind is restored over the winter period".
