This pre-emptive approach to identifying and diagnosing any problems could potentially alert an engineer even before a boiler stops working, calling them out for you and letting them know what replacement parts might be needed. This could mean the end of cold showers due to boilers breaking, as faults would be fixed much quicker than normal.
