Boiler Maintenance Tips

We've compiled a list of tips and methods to help you maintain your boiler and keep it from breaking down in the future. Among these suggestions are... 

Keep it running. 

People turn off their boilers as soon as summer arrives in order to save money. However, this can cause certain components of your central heating system to fail. To avoid this, switch on your boiler for a short period of time throughout the summer. 
Bleed your radiators 
If you notice cold spots on your radiator, this could indicate that it needs to be bled. This aids in the discharge of any trapped air that is keeping your radiator from heating up evenly.

Keep your pipes from freezing

Setting your thermostat to a low setting or on an automatic schedule may help keep your pipes from freezing. Frozen pipes can be quite damaging, especially if they burst. You can further prevent this by adding insulation pipes; if you want to learn more about this, please contact us by following the link below.

Common boiler issues

Low pressure

Low pressure can be an indication of a leak or deeper issues within your central heating system.

Signs of low pressure include radiators not heating up, decreased efficiency and poor circulation.

Radiator faults

If some or all of your radiators are not heating up, it can point to a variety of problems including a broken pump or excessive air within your central heating system.

Boiler is not reacting to the thermostat

A common and frustrating problem that can mean faulty wiring as well as indicate deeper issues within your boiler. 

Boiler leaks 

Leaks within your boiler system can cause a number of problems including low pressure and water damage.

Unusual noises coming from your boiler

Banging or kettling or loud than normal humming noises can often be a sign of deeper issues in your boiler. Kettling or banging is an indication of a build-up of excess air or limescale which could be obstructing the flow of water through your system. 

If you are experiencing any of the issues listed above or any other boiler issue get in touch with your local boiler experts at VFR Plumbing, Heating & Gas.
