Dangerous Boiler Discovered At Warrington Home

Dangerous Boiler Discovered At Warrington Home

L&W was asked to carry out a boiler service for a new customer in Warrington recently.  During the visual inspection, our engineer found that the boiler flue had never been secured to the boiler.  The customer was informed of the potentially dangerous situation from the appliance, due to the poor installation resulting in a dangerous boiler.

Dangerous Boiler

There was a significant potential that the products of combustion produced by the boiler could possibly enter the home.  This could have caused harm to the occupants.  Luckily for the occupants, no harm had been done.  L&W quickly rectified the problem by replacing the flue spigot clamp & securing the flue with screws, preventing any further problems.  The appliance was then tested and deemed safe for the customer. 

The customer was very relieved this had been spotted as it was a fairly newly installed boiler.  It just goes to show the importance of regular gas servicing & safety checks being carried out on gas appliances.
