Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Central Heating System

Spring is here, and the cold, harsh winter weather has hopefully faded away – after lasting a lot longer than we ever anticipated this year. Now it is time to think about spring cleaning your home, but as well as your house itself. There is no better time of year than spring for giving your heating and plumbing system a once over. Read our spring cleaning tips for your central heating system for more information.

Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Central Heating System

Here are some Spring-cleaning tips for your central heating system:

  • Check that your boiler is working properly, and that the pressure gauge is set to the right level. Top it up with water using the filling loop if needed.
  • Bleed your radiator system. If there are cold spots in a radiator, then it is most likely because air has become trapped in the system, making your heating less efficient.
  • Insulate your water tank and hot water pipes to help to conserve heat and save money on fuel bills.
  • Insulate all your accessible pipes to help to stop them from bursting next winter.
  • Seal around windows and doors with draught excluders to prevent warm air from escaping.
  • Fit or replace the batteries in your audible carbon monoxide alarm.
  • Water pipe lagging, insulating material for your water tank and various types of draught excluder can all be bought cheaply from your local DIY store.

If you need any major work on your heating and plumbing system, such as fitting a new boiler, the spring and summer months are the best times to do so. Plumbers have less demand and if you need to go without central heating for a day or so it is much less trouble when it is warm outside!
