If Your Heating System Working To It’s Full Potential

Ability provides assistance with heating system, plumbing and electrical assistance in the Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, East Grinstead, Maidstone, Bromley, Orpington and surrounding areas in Kent, East and West Sussex areas.

Heating systems currently attract dirt and obtain air within them.  It is important to service regularly to remove these to ensure that all is working to its full potential.  If dirt and air are left untreated it will inevitably lead to problems and could, therefore, lead to system breakdowns, which usually happens at the most inappropriate times

Debris in the heating system

Ability has found that whilst technology has moved on and heating systems are far more advanced with smart controls etc we have also noticed that unfortunately, they are more sensitive to contamination from dirt particles and with airlocks.

Whilst many of us will have our boilers serviced regularly, we do not tend to think about the quality of water that is running throughout our heating systems.  An inhibitor to minimise corrosion should be applied particularly in hard water areas.  It is recommended that a heating system should be flushed every 5 to 6 years to ensure efficiency and stop limescale build-up and remove debris and rust.

Common Heating System Complains

Here at Ability we look at some of the most common system complaints to look out for, which suggest air and dirt which could jeopardise the performance of a light commercial or domestic heating system.  

Noisy System – if the system is becoming unusually noisy when in operation this is usually because there is air and build-up within the heating systems resulting in the radiators and pipework banging and clanging as the water tries to pass through.

Cold radiators – If radiators have cold spots or are cold at the bottom but warm at the top, this would suggest there is a build-up of debris within the systems and therefore a power flush may be required.

Corrosion within the system

Air – if there is increased air in the system, this will accumulate in the radiators and potentially clog up the pump, this will usually be noticeable by a noisy system and should be treated as soon as possible to prevent problems.

Replacement of Parts- if parts are being replaced faster than expected this could be due to contamination within the heating system.  When there are debris and air within the system the parts such as the pump are having to work harder to achieve the same output, leading to strain and excessive wear on parts.  Replacing parts can be very costly and can be avoided by keeping the boiler regularly services, water treated and radiators bleed.

Ideal Boilers Recommended and Installed By Ability

Ability specialises in boiler installation and covers Kent, West and East Sussex.  We install many Ideal Boilers both Combi and System in the Orpington and Bromley area and we recommend these products.

Ideal Boilers were founded in 1906 so have over 100 years’ experience in designing and developing their Ideal Boilers.  All their products are manufactured in the UK.

Ideal Combi Boilers

Ideal Combi Boilers are economical to run as they heat the water as it is used and produces the heating for the home.  They are small so will fit in a cupboard making them perfect for the Petit home. They come with a 7 to 12 years warranty depending on the make and model purchased.  There are several models Ability have used in the Bromley and Orpington area and these include the Logic Max combi and the Vogue Max combi.  These Ideal boilers are light, quick to install and easy to service.  They have digital displays with clear to read pressure gauge.  They also have quality brass filters and frost protection.

Ideal System Boilers

Ideal Boilers also provided system boilers which Ability have installed in the Orpington and Bromley area.  These system boilers are fully pressurised and are filled via the mains cold water.  It then heats the water for the cylinder and heats the central heating system.  A heat pump then circulates the heat round making the radiators hot.  The Logic Max and the Vogue Max system both come with 10 to 12 years warranty.  Ability has found that they are easy to install and service.  They are both light and small enough to fit into a cupboard.
