Central Heating and Boiler Basics

Natural gas*, supplied to the home by an underground main line, is fed through a small pipe leading into your home. When the thermostat triggers the boiler to heat the house, a valve opens, releasing the natural gas into a combustion chamber in the form of small jets. An electric spark ignites the fuel. The fire heats the water-filled pipes that circulate through your home. The pipes connect to a radiator where the heated water emits heat energy into the room. Once the heat is exhausted into the air, the cooled water returns through the pipes leading back to the boiler to be reheated and circulated again.

  • – Other fuels such as Oil, Biomass and LPG may be used, but the principle is the same for all.
Boiler Servicing Checklist

Boiler inspection, servicing, and maintenance is essential as modern heating systems are quite complex and the malfunctioning of any component may cause the whole system to stop working.

Worst of all failure of heating is most likely to occur when the system is working the hardest, on the coldest days of winter, unless it is properly serviced. Don’t make it more likely that you will shiver! Get your boiler inspection done annually!

Essential Considerations for Choosing Energy Efficient Combi Boiler

Maintaining the boiler in a high state of repair should help with limiting any expensive bills in the future for significant repairs or even replacement of the boiler. Maintaining the boiler needn't be time-consuming or expensive. Here are several steps that can be taken to make certain a boiler is able to operate more efficiently for the long-term:

Make certain the boiler manual is kept in a convenient location. Many people will lose or throw the manual for the boiler once it has been installed. But, if you do find that you are experiencing any difficulties in the future, you'll find that the manual can be highly beneficial for troubleshooting the more common issues you are likely to experience. Also, you also want to make certain that you have access to the manual to help with programming the timing or similar settings that you might wish to change in the future.

Put in place a regular maintenance schedule. If you really want to make certain that boiler system is maintained in a full operational condition, you might want to look having a regular 12 monthly service. A professional service is able to check all aspects of the boiler to make certain it is able to run efficiently. Ideally, you want to have a boiler serviced each year prior to the cold weather arriving.

Prevent the boiler from freezing. It is possible to prevent a boiler from freezing in the very low temperatures by leaving the heating on at a low range constantly. You might find that this isn't the most economical solution and therefore you might want to look at other methods for preventing a boiler from freezing. Insulation of all the pipe work is likely to be one of the more effective options.

Have faulty parts and systems replaced. A boiler isn't able to operate to its full efficiency if parts are starting to fail. A thermostat that is getting old is likely to lose its ability to provide accurate readings in relation to the temperature setting. If you constantly have the heating at an unnecessary high level then this is certain to be a waste of energy.

If you do start to notice that a boiler isn't able to operate as efficiently as desired, then it will certainly benefit if you are able to call on the services of the qualified plumbers who will be able to offer the most efficient solution for rectifying the problems.
