A Guide to Central Heating Maintenance


Like any other complex system, your central heating will only perform at optimum levels if it is serviced on a regular basis, and this should be done before and after the winter. There are quite a few things that could go wrong with a central heating system, some of which are listed below.

  1. Boiler Issues – The boiler is the very core of your heating system, and it needs to be checked for both gas and water leaks, as well as being inspected to ensure the burn is lean. Whether you are looking to service central heating in Bristol or Norfolk, search an online business directory to find a local heating engineer, and he would make an appointment at your convenience.
  2. Trapped Air – A wet central heating system would be closed, meaning that the same water is circulated throughout the house, and should any air get trapped, this will affect the performance. The heating engineer would bleed the system at the radiators, thus removing any trapped air.
  3. Water Tank & Pump – If you have a modern combi boiler, then you would not have a tank, while older systems do need a tank, which needs to be inspected for signs of corrosion. Water pumps do not last forever, and if the heating engineer recommends a replacement, you should follow his advice, as it is only a matter of time.

If you haven’t already had your central heating serviced, this is something to arrange, and with a local specialist, you can make it an annual thing.
