Get Your Boiler Ready for Winter now before it is too late and you end up with a heavy repair bill…
Yes it’s that time of year again when the Central Heating begins going on in houses across the nation including here in Liverpool, as the temperature falls and winter time is well and truly on the way.
Of course this is just the season when we need our central heating boilers the most – and it’s the actual season we’re likely to run into issues as well. The unexpected requirement we put them under can expose issues, and the dropping temperature can cause issues of their own as well.
Here are some guidelines to ensure you decrease the possibility of a faulty boiler this winter time.
1. Get your boiler serviced now
This is the best time for a boiler service. It will make sure everything is functioning effectively and if any maintenance that is needed, they can be done before the really cold weather sneaks in.
2. Turn your heating on at least once each week
Don’t delay for the really cold weather to hit before you put your Central Heating on. Even if you only run it on for a few hours one day per 7 days, it gives you a chance to see if there are any issues with it before you really need it.
Frozen pipes and joints can be a big problem for homeowners, avoiding the CH system and the boiler from functioning effectively. You should protect them all if you have not already done so – Including -if you have a condensing boiler- the condensate pipe if it runs through to the outside of your home.
4. Keep the heating on consistently but on a low setting
Lots of people only turn their Central Heating on in Liverpool when they really need it. However, when they do, they put it on high and it can take ages to warm the whole home. Then they turn it off again. Instead of doing this, have the boiler and Central Heating system on very low and keep it on for longer. It allows the home to accomplish a awesome temperature continually and it can mean less boiler issues because it will not have so much demand of it.
