How to Maintain Your Vaillant Boiler for Optimal Performance

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor

Vaillant is among the top names in heating. For over 150 years, the company has been a leader in keeping homes warm and comfortable across the UK. Their commitment to efficiency continues with their modern heating systems. However, even the best equipment requires regular maintenance. This is why Vaillant boiler service is essential.

Here at We Service Boilers, our qualified heating engineers specialise in servicing Vaillant boilers. Our annual service ensures that your boiler remains under warranty, operates efficiently, and keeps you safe and warm throughout the winter so that unexpected breakdowns don’t disrupt your comfort or budget. Additionally, our engineers can recommend tips to optimise your boiler’s performance, such as:

Don’t leave your boiler running all the time.

Some homeowners leave their heating on at a lower temperature, thinking it’s the best way to maintain warmth all day and night. However, your heat will eventually lose heat one way or another, making this an inefficient way to stay warm.

Instead, we recommend turning your heating on only when your surroundings feel cold. This won’t just help you save energy and money, but it will minimise your boiler’s wear and tear and ensure consistent performance. Moreover, you can avoid wasting energy when you don’t require heating, like when you leave the house or while you’re asleep.

Bleed the radiators

Maximise your central heating system’s performance by bleeding the radiators at least every six months, preferably as winter nears. Trapped air can build up in your central heating, get stuck in your radiator, and impact the boiler’s performance. Our Vaillant boiler service can take care of this and take the guesswork out of doing it.

Invest in better insulation.

Vaillant boilers may be some of the most efficient, but heat can still escape through the ceiling and walls and make them work harder. This makes them more prone to wear and tear, plus higher energy bills. We recommend insulating your loft and using double-glazed windows and cavity walls to reduce your yearly fuel spend. Additionally, these energy-saving initiatives could qualify you for grants.
