Boiler service

Here's what should take place as part of a boiler service:

 

  • Boiler inspection to make sure it’s working properly.

  • A visual check of the boiler.

  • A visual check of the boiler and flame, if possible Checks on the flue (externally and internally)

  • Visual inspection of flue route and termination.

  • Checking and adjusting the system pressure.

  • Cleaning the condensate trap.

  • Most older conventional systems, for example, have parts such as the heat exchanger, burner and fan that would need to be dismantled and checked. This is not normally necessary for a modern boiler, unless the flue gas analysis suggests there's a problem. 

  • Test the gas connections and gas pressure.

  • Carrying out a leak detection check.

  • Checking the gas pressure to make sure it's right and inspecting your appliance for any wear or leaks.

CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM ANNUAL SERVICE

The importance of annual heating system maintenance

  • Visually checking and bleeding radiators, if necessary.

  • We will inspect the valves to the radiator to ensure there are no leaks.

  • Our engineers will drain the radiators to maintain the proper pressure and replace the old fluid with new fluid if needed.

  • We will make sure all the radiators are heating properly.

 

Bleed radiators

When you turn on your boiler, allow it to run for a bit. You will probably notice that some of the radiators do not heat up straight away. This is often because there is air in the radiator.

You can tell if it is air because the radiator will be hot at the bottom and cold at the top.

To resolve this, follow these steps:

  • Get an old cloth and a radiator key.

  • Protect carpet with plastic just in case it leaks

  • Place the key in the valve and gently turn the key anti clockwise for a quarter of a turn holding the cloth underneath the key to catch any water that escapes.

  • You will hear a hissing noise as the air comes out of the radiator.

  • After awhile, the hissing will stop and water should start to come out of the radiator.

  • Catch any excess water in the cloth.

  • Turn the radiator key in the opposite direction to close the valve.

  • Check the radiator that should now be hot all the way to the top.

After you have bled the radiator, you should check the pressure gauge on the boiler as it is likely that the pressure will drop and you may need to re-fill your boiler.

 

Common radiator problems

Painted over valve – If the radiator has been painted, sometimes the valve is painted over. This means that it is not easy to free the valve try applying some pressure and WD40 to free it.

If not, call us and we will send someone over to you to fix the problem.

Radiator is hot at top but not at the bottom – This will be because there is sludge in your radiator, you will need to get the system powerflushed.

Radiator not heating up at all – Check to see that the valve at the bottom of the radiator is open. It will turn clockwise. If it is open and the radiator is still not heating up, this could mean a problem with the valve. If you need to replace the valve, we would always recommend that you opt for a thermostatic radiator valve as it gives you the ability to adjust the heat setting of the radiator according to your needs.

 

Balancing the radiators

This is quite a tricky but worthwhile exercise. Once you have bled all the radiators, you might notice that some are warmer than others. If you gently adjust the radiators so that the really hot ones are less hot, then the cooler ones should warm up. In big houses this it quite difficult and you may require expert help.
