Local boiler servicing across Camden

Your boiler is one of the most important parts of your home. It keeps your home warm, ensures appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines can operate as well as reducing the risk of damp and mould forming in your home, something that over time can damage your long term health.
In order to do this, it is important to check that your boiler is working as effectively as possible. Boiler Servicing Camden is one of the key services that Ashton Heating and Plumbing (AHP) offers, making sure that your boiler is up to date and can do the job. Here are a few tips that will help you keep your boiler running as well as possible.

Get it serviced at least once a year

Your boiler should be serviced at least once a year. This means getting a Gas Safe certified engineer (such as AHP) to look over the operation of the boiler. During a service, an engineer will be able to spot any small issues that will most likely only need minor repairs. They will then be able to give their recommendation to you.
It is best to deal with these more minor repair issues quickly, as this will prevent problems with the boiler from getting worse and having to deal with a more costly repair bill later on.

Check the pressure

One potential issue that may occur is that the boiler is not circulating effectively due to the wrong water pressure. The instructions with your unit should indicate if the pressure is between 1 to 2 bar, something that you can adjust for yourself without the need for an additional callout.

Keep it clear

While it may be convenient to dry your towels over a boiler this can affect the performance. Boilers require ventilation so it is important to ensure that the unit has the space it needs in order to perform as effectively as possible.

Radiator issues

Over an extended period of time air can become trapped within radiators. These little pockets of air within the radiator make it harder for the heating system to fully heat a room. A likely indicator is if you go into a room in your house and notice one area is significantly colder than another.
You bleed radiators by loosening the valves and releasing the pressure. This can be difficult if the valves have been painted over, but using a product such as WD-40 can help loosen them or if you are having difficulties you can call in a technician to help.
If bleeding radiators doesn’t work then you may need to balance them. This process is harder and involves adjusting the valves, turning the heating off and on and adjusting the temperature, starting by noting the fastest heating radiator and changing valves with each unit until you balance the heat in the room consistently.
In some cases the heat of a radiator may be warmer at the top than at the bottom. In this instance it may be because the bottom is clogged with dust and debris. An engineer can do a process called powerflush that can clear this dirt and debris to make the radiator run more efficiently. If this doesn’t work it may be that a valve needs replacing.

Check the boiler flame

If your boiler burns with an orange or yellow flame as opposed to blue then you need to call a Gas Safe certified engineer (such as APH) as soon as possible. This is because with an orange or yellow flame there is a serious risk of a carbon monoxide leak and therefore is a potential risk to your health and safety.
Other issues to look out for include dripping from the external pipe, ensuring the flue is accessible and visible and that the pipes are properly insulated (as this will reduce the risk of your boiler breaking down during colder periods due to the pipes getting frozen).

Don’t try to fix a boiler yourself

While it is possible to go online to address issues such as bleeding or balancing radiators, it is very important that you only use a certified professional when it comes to boiler servicing Camden. AHP have been doing this work for over 10 years, so you can be rest assured that your unit will be inspected properly and any recommendations will be based on our training and years of experience.
