Without a working boiler your home won’t have heat or hot water. This can put the health of everybody in the property at risk. If the appliance is not working properly it will also be wasting energy and potentially produce harmful carbon monoxide. Luckily we can help. With one call to Warm you can find quotes for local boiler engineers. They can arrange the most reliable boiler installation Aberdeen has to offer as well as completing repairs, powerflushing, and more.
If you get a new boiler you will expect it to be as efficient as possible. While this may be true, there are things you need to do to maintain it. As the appliance gets older you need to do even more maintenance to avoid problems.
Here are a few of the ways you can ensure your boiler is running efficiently.
A service is one of the most effective ways to make sure your boiler is in great shape. When you arrange for this every year, you can help your appliance perform as it should do and stay in good health. An engineer on the Gas Safe register can service your boiler and make sure it is running efficiently. Servicing allows you to save money, can prevent breakdowns, and can help maintain the warranty for your machine.
Keep It Ticking Over
Boilers can seize up if you don’t use them for a long period of time such as over the summer or when you go on holiday. As a result, it can be smart to turn your heating on for a few minutes even in warm weather. This will reduce the likelihood of your boiler breaking when you need it more frequently.
Check The Pressure
The boiler pressure might drop all of a sudden which can impede the performance of your central heating. This can happen for a number of reasons, for example a faulty valve, an air leak, or radiators full of air. You need stable water pressure for an effective system. You can top up the pressure for some boilers but if you are ever unsure, you should contact a qualified plumber or engineer.
Bleed The Radiators
Scale or sludge can build up in your system and block radiator pipes. This can affect the flow of water and create cold spots in radiators, making your heating less effective. You should bleed your radiators if there are any cold spots or they take a long time to warm up.
Need A New System?
Sometimes, the best thing to improve the efficiency of your home is to invest in a new system. One of our engineers can advise you on a decision like this and complete the boiler installation Aberdeen can depend on. Reach out to Warm now for more information.
