Our Guide To Keep Warm This Christmas

Keep Warm This Christmas

Keep warm this Christmas with a Christmas boiler service. Reduce the risks of your boiler breaking down and leaving you in the cold at Christmas with a boiler service. You need to choose a Gas-Safe accredited heating engineer to do this – lookout for the Which? Trusted Trademark. L&W Plumbing and Heating engineers are proud to be part of this scheme.

Keep Warm This Christmas

During the Christmas boiler service and safety inspection, your Gas Safe qualified engineer:

  • Tests the pressure of the boiler
  • Checks the flue for unsafe emissions
  • Tests the boiler controls
  • Visually inspects the appliance’s condition
  • Issues a CP12 inspection certificate

Common Christmas boiler service problems

Some of the challenges we often find during Christmas boiler services are:

Automatic air vent

If this is broken, you will see dripping water or limescale building up outside, near the vent.

Pressure relief valve

A blocked or broken valve can lead to constant dripping water from the copper pipework outside.

Sludge Build Up

If your radiators feel hotter at the top and colder at the bottom, then this means it is most likely time for a Christmas central heating power flush to remove sludge.

Diverter valve fault

If the diverter valve is broken, the system gets stuck on either hot water or central heating. Turning on the hot water taps makes your radiators heat up, and the water from them is lukewarm.

Pump Failure

Pump failure is caused by sludge, usually. It is catastrophic: it stops the whole heating system from working at all.

Limescale Build Up

Limescale build-ups in central heating pipes are really common, particularly in hard water areas. It causes inconsistent water temperature.
