Title: A Winter Checklist - are YOU prepared?

At this time of year it’s always better to be safe than sorry, so we’ve pulled together some key activities for you to bear in mind for over the cold winter season:

  • Regular servicing – employ a Gas Safe registered engineer (which we are!) to service your boiler at least once every 12 months. This should identify any potential faults which could lead to a system malfunction and leave you ‘out in the cold” indoors so-to-speak! Plus, many boiler manufacturers will only uphold a guarantee on the system if you have the boiler annually serviced by an appropriately qualified engineer
  • Insulate pipework – to avoid boiler malfunction, it’s advisable to insulate any pipework that’s exposed (even in loft space) and this includes condensate drain and cold/hot pipework
  • Fit a magnetic filter – a filter system will retain any debris and ferrous material that accumulates in your heating system over time. Sediment could have settled due to the heating side of the system not being in operation over the spring/summer months. A magnetic filter should be used to not only loosen sediment but effectively collect it as well. Currently, as we are a Worcester Bosch Gold Accredited Installer, we can offer up to 8 years guarantee on certain Worcester boilers if fitted with a Worcester Greenstar Filter System. This is an additional 6 years over a normal Worcester guarantee
  • Check your radiators – make sure that you bleed your radiators in your property (especially those at the highest points of your system) and ensure that when the system is on, heat is being distributed evenly across the surface of the radiator. Fit a programmable room thermostat to operate the system effectively in cold weather, this will give a more substantial control that will react to temperature AND time rather than just time. If you’d like a quote then give us a call on 01738 627701
  • Monitor the pressure – sealed central heating systems should maintain the same pressure which is usually between 1-1.5 Bar. If you find that your system is experiencing a drop in pressure and you have to recharge the system then you have a leak somewhere. If there are no obvious signs of a leak then contact us to resolve the problem.
