Choosing The Right Boiler For Your Wigan Home

Make a New Years Resolution to Service Your Boiler

Is your New Years Resolution to have your annual boiler service? We think that would be a good idea, as heating breakdowns happen most often in the winter. You can reduce the risk of this happening by booking a New Year boiler service from L&W Plumbing and Heating, your trusted local central heating engineers.

Make a New Years Resolution to Service Your Boiler

In our New Year gas safety inspection, a Gas Safe qualified L&W Heating engineer tests your boiler pressure; checks it for unsafe emissions at the flue; checks out all of the controls to ensure they work; visually inspects the boiler’s condition and either issue you with a CP12 inspection certificate or warns you if s/he has any concerns about its safety.

If your boiler has seen a lot of action over the last year, it could fail when it is first called into action next winter. A lot of problems that may cause a New Year boiler breakdown are actually identified during an annual boiler service. So, a New Year boiler service makes your boiler more efficient and could save you money as gas bills are predicted to reach their highest levels ever this year.

Common Winter Boiler Servicing Problems

  • Automatic air vents frequently fail. If this happens you see dripping water or even limescale build-up on the exterior wall.
  • If limescale has built inside the pipework it causes fluctuations in your hot water temperature from your taps.
  • A blocked pressure relief valve can cause water to drip from the vent pipe outside.
  • Pump failures can be caused by a sludge build-up. They prevent the entire central heating system from working.
  • If the diverter valve has failed, your boiler may stick on its hot water or central heating setting. Turning on the hot taps may make the radiators heat up, and tap water comes out lukewarm.
  • If your radiators are hotter at the top but cold at the bottom, your central heating system may need to have a Central Heating Power Flush.
