Boiler Pressure

If you are unfortunate enough to end up with frozen pipes your heating will come to a standstill, but luckily it’s a problem that’s easily fixed.

The best thing to do is to place a hot water bottle on the pipe, or pour warm water on it and then reset your thermostat.

Alternatively, you can boil a kettle and pour the boiling water over your pipes. You may need to do this a few times to properly thaw them though. This might take a while, but it will help keep your boiler service and maintenance cost low.

The most obvious sign of a dodgy boiler is quite simply when it’s not heating up water anymore. There’s no surer sign of a boiler not working than the heating not coming on, but the trouble may well start long before that, so it pays to know what to look out for.

One of the clearest signs to look out for is whether your boiler flame is clear blue. An orange or yellow gas flame is a great indicator of a problem and means it’s time to call your boiler engineer and we can carry our annual maintenance.

Boiler pressure is another clear indicator. If your boiler pressure is suddenly dropping or rising, or if the pressure remains too high for prolonged periods of time, it may be time to consider boiler servicing.

It’s also a bad sign if you hear clunking or ticking noises, particularly when your boiler starts up. Similarly, if your boiler is using significantly more gas than usual there may be a serious problem that should be investigated as soon as possible.
