How To Prevent Boiler Breakdowns
Now that we’re well on our way to winter, it’s essential that our heating systems are fit for purpose so that we can keep ourselves toasty and warm, no matter what the weather’s doing outside over the next few weeks and months.
Your boiler is one of the most essential appliances in your home and, without it, you’ll lose your access to hot water and central heating, which would be annoying at any time of year but which actively puts your health at risk during the winter months.
The good news is that there’s a lot you can do to help protect your boiler so that it can continue serving you and your family well over the years. Here are our top tips to help you do just that!
Proactive maintenance can be incredibly useful, helping you to identify potential issues quickly so you can solve them before they become too problematic. Having your boiler serviced once a year is generally advisable as a course of action.
Turn the heating up slowly
Switch your central heating on earlier in the year so you can see if there are likely to be any problems when winter approaches. It’s better to find out that there are issues when the weather is warmer so you can have them repaired before the cold weather sets in.
Power flush the boiler
Over time, your boiler and system can become clogged up with sludge, which can make it far less efficient to run. Power flushing can help clear the system and dislodge any blockages, helping everything to continue running as normal.
