Heating Engineers Bournemouth, Poole and Surrounding Areas
Boilers and heating systems are famously more likely to break down in winter, just when you need them the most! This phenomenon is not down to fate and bad luck, but because they have sat largely idle for months, allowing valves to get stuck, pipes to leak, pressure to drop, and all manner of other ailments.
An annual boiler service before winter arrives could save all the stress, unpleasantness and expense of having a broken boiler during the cold weather. Regular maintenance of your heating system is vital to keep your home or workplace warm, cosy and, above all, safe, because faulty boilers have the potential to be dangerous. It is a legal requirement for landlords to have gas appliances checked annually, and responsible householders should do likewise for peace of mind.
Abbots heating engineers, based in Bournemouth, are Gas Safe Registered and fully qualified to repair and maintain all sorts of heating systems, including underfloor heating and hot water cylinders. We also install new and replacement boilers in properties in the surrounding areas of Dorset and Hampshire.
We’ve been in business for more than 40 years, so there’s little we don’t know or have not experienced when it comes to problems with central heating and hot water systems. Our advice is not to take your heating system for granted, but to be alert to any signs that all is not well and call in a professional to investigate, diagnose and repair as soon as possible. Delay could result in the problem escalating into a bigger one, which could well leave you facing a full boiler replacement. A faulty boiler could also be costing you more than necessary in energy bills.
If your boiler is leaking or dripping it could indicate a worn part, like a pump seal or valve, or the pressure may be too high. Corrosion of the pipes or tank can also cause leaks.
Another sure sign of a problem is if your system makes banging, whistling or gurgling noises. Noisy boilers may have too low pressure, a failing pump, or it could be “kettling” because of a build up of limescale and other deposits in the system that need to be professionally flushed out.
If the radiators are not heating up evenly there could be a variety of causes, including sludge build up or air in the system. Balancing, flushing and bleeding radiators is best done by a Gas Safe engineer.
Some of the other heating issues we come across frequently are malfunctioning thermostats which do not accurately moderate the temperature or timing schedule; problems with the pilot light and gas feed; frozen condensate pipes; and boilers which keep switching themselves off.
Contact us to arrange a regular maintenance programme for your heating, and call us in straight away if you have any concerns about the efficiency of your boiler, radiators or piping.
