​Servicing Your Boiler:

You need to have your boiler serviced at least once per year, this is extremely important as this is usually forgotten about and dismissed. Not having your boiler serviced or checked can lead to more costs in the long run. By having your boiler serviced we will be able to detect any faults that could lead to breakdowns before they occur and our qualified engineers will be able to fix any problems before they get worse, as well as ensuring your safety and peace of mind.


Bleed The Radiators:

One of the most common problems relating to central heating is that the radiators will not heat up as quickly as they should be and start to develop cold areas. This problem is solved by bleeding your radiators with a special bleeding key. Bleeding keys are relatively cheap and can be purchased from most hardware shops. Bleeding your radiators will ensure that they are working and running efficiently and to their full capacity so that no fuel is wasted. Once you have finished bleeding your radiators, it is also best to check the pressure gauge on your boiler as this may need adjusting. If you are unsure about this then please feel free to ask our qualified engineers that will be happy to assist you.

Boiler Installation

​ Monitor The Pressure:

For your boiler to run smoothly and efficiently, it is very important to monitor the pressure of your boiler and make sure it is right. If the pressure is too low or rises too high then this could indicate a fault or leak with the valves that will need repairing or replacing. Monitoring your pressure regularly is a good way to detect any underlying problems or issues before they occur. We are then able to fix the problem for you before it devils further problems.
