Top 7 Tips for Keeping Your Boiler Healthy
If you have a gas or oil boiler for central heating, maintaining your boiler will save you money as well as giving trouble-free service. The boiler installation must be done correctly and must be operated and maintained in such a manner that it functions properly to give you the best and most economical service during the cold season.
Here are some of the most important tips for keeping a Boiler Healthy:
Your new boiler needs good maintenance for a trouble-free experience. For this, you need to undertake preventive maintenance at regular intervals. Employ a skilled, Gas Safe registered boiler service company for boiler installation. Get it serviced at prescribed intervals so that you can avoid costly boiler repairs and save money.
When you switch on your boiler, the radiator may not heat up uniformly and it will be hot at the bottom and cold at the top. This is due to the presence of air in the radiator. Know how to bleed the radiator and release the air out of the radiator so that your gas boiler runs smoothly and efficiently.
Whether you have a new boiler or are running your old gas boiler, always check if the radiator is heating properly. If not, there may be a problem with the control valve or there may be sludge in your radiator that must be power flushed. You may have to replace the valve with a new thermostatic valve so that your boiler can function efficiently with the ability to control the heat output as per your needs and save money on fuel bills.
The efficiency of your gas boiler or the one that powers your central heating system depends mostly on the level of heating available to your radiators. For this, you must bleed your radiators and make them heat up uniformly by balancing your radiators so that each one of them gets the same amount of heat. This must be done during your boiler installation as well as during every boiler repair. This will enhance the level of efficiency of your gas boiler.
Ensure that your boiler operates at the right pressure, and the pressure gauge on your boiler shows the recommended pressure level as prescribed by the manufacturer. If there is low-pressure reading get it topped up so that your boiler works at optimum pressure for maximum heat output and this will increase the efficiency of your heating system and give you necessary warmth at lesser cost and help you save money on your gas bill.
When you find that your boiler is not heating up properly and water is dripping out of the drainpipe outside your home, the pressure release valve may be faulty. You may need to replace it immediately so that your gas boiler gives out the required level of heating for added comfort, not to mention saving money on your fuel bills!
The boiler installation must be located in a place where there is sufficient ventilation available for your boiler to function properly. Never clutter things around your boiler and allow it to breathe normally for optimum performance.
These are only some of the best practices that will help your gas boiler to function at its peak efficiency and give all the heating you and your family need at very less cost and save you more money on your gas bills. It is a good practice to always call for professional gas boiler repairpersons and avoid attempting to do the repairs by yourself.
