Servicing ensures your home is safe- especially if your range cooker uses gas, since it enables detecting any gas leaks. It also helps in cutting your energy bills by making sure that your range cooker works in the most energy-efficient manner, as well as helping you save on any money you would need to order food because the cooker is not working correctly. Furthermore, routine servicing extends the life of the range cooker so you can use it for years to come without the need to buy another.
