Spring Cleaning Your Boiler

Spring Cleaning Your Boiler

The sun is shining again; the temperature is rising, and some say it’s starting to feel like spring already. But rising temperatures are the sign that it is time to think about spring cleaning your boiler to improve its efficiency before the colder weather returns in the autumn.

Spring Cleaning Your Boiler

Here are some suggestions of things to do this spring to improve the health of your boiler and central heating.

Get the boiler checked

Book in a “Power-flush” for your central heating system. If your boiler is starting to make a rattling noise or the radiators are cold at the bottom, this could be a sign that they are suffering from a build-up of iron oxide sludge. The solution is for your local heating and plumbing experts, L&W Heating and Plumbing, to clean out and “power flush” the entire system. It makes all your radiators heat up properly again and will improve the efficiency of your central heating. ‘Power-flushing’ makes the boiler last longer as well as cuts down on your energy costs.

Turn down your thermostat

As the British weather begins to get warmer, the temperature inside your home will soon be high enough without any extra help from your central heating system. Consider turning down the radiator valves until winter or lowering the thermostat. Turning down your temperature by just 1°C saves approximately £55 per year. So, enjoy the sunshine and save some money.

If you need any work done to your central heating system, such as a new boiler fitting, then spring and summer are the best time to do it. Plumbers have more slots available for work at this time of year, and if you have to cope without your central heating for a day or two it is less trouble when it is already hot!
