Its funny actually; I was speaking to a customer recently who had been living in their house for 10 years and never had their boiler serviced - I told them to get it done straight away as they may be in danger of getting CO2 poisoning!
They said that their boiler was already in their house when they moved in and that was 15 years ago, so arranging their home plumbing services was no a must and that they should really get the plumbing serviced straight away!
Phew! Imagine... They will probably need a new boiler - it was one of the older models where the tank was in the loft. I suggested to them to get a Combi Boiler and I think that is what they will do...
Home plumbing services have really changed over the past 2 years in the United Kingdom - we have gone from Corgi to the all new Gas Safe Register - I must say that quite a few friends in the industry would have rather stuck to Corgi, but hey, you have to move with industry..
- Always have you home plumbing services arranged by a registered plumber
- Have your boiler serviced at least once a year
- Try and stick to a regular company
- Use a local home plumbing services company
- Get reccommendations
