We specialise in installing condensing boilers and renewable energy products from Worcester Bosch Group using the latest technology available. Modern condensing boilers improve efficiency to over 90% which could save you a minimum of 30% per year on your home heating bills, which represents a big saving.
In April 2005, the building regulations for England and Wales changed in some very important ways. One of the government's first steps in its action to seek improvements to the energy efficiency of homes is through changes in the building regulations which deal with the minimum standards for buildings.
The regulations are designed to ensure the health, safety and welfare of people in and around buildings and to encourage conservation.
Once a new or replacement Boiler installation has taken place, our Engineer will notify Gas Safe that the work has been carried out. Then Gas Safe will issue the homeowner with a 'declaration of safety' or 'Building regulations compliance certificate' confirming work has been carried out by a competent registered Gas Safety Engineer, and the installer meets the requirements of the relevant Gas ama/ or Building regulations.
Boilers can seize up if they are not used regularly. Experts therefore recommend that you turn on the heating for 10 to 15 minutes every so often during the summer months, just to keep the boiler ticking over.
Boiler lose pressure overtime, which can cause them to run insufficiently. Check the pressure gauge on your boiler if you can top it up if necessary. Your manual should give you instructions or Contact us(clickable) we would be happy to help.
If your radiators are colder at the top than the bottom, air is trapped in the system. You therefore need to release the air by 'bleeding' the radiators. If you don't the system is not working efficiently, putting extra strain on your boiler and effectively wasting your money.
Switch the heating off before you bleed the radiators and slot the key into the bleed valve. Turn the key anticlockwise for a quarter of a rotation and you should hear a hissing sound as the air escapes. When water starts to drip (have an old towel to hand!) lock the valve and the job is done, though you might need to up the boiler pressure.
Leaks, cracks, clunking noises or black, sooty marks all suggest you have a problem. So check your boiler regularly and look out for warning signs. The sooner you detect and repair a fault, the better. Its also wise to make sure that only external vents, flues, and air bricks are free from blockages and debris.
The flame in your boiler should be a strong, clear blue. If it appears yellow or smoky, there could be something wrong and you should Contact us(clickable) immediately.
If your boiler is in a cupboard, is it surrounded by coats, shoes, bags and other clutter? Boilers need ventilation so the space around the appliance should be kept free from clutter. Your boiler should also be relatively easy to access, so make sure you keep cupboard reasonably tidy. RFW Plumbing and Heating LTD are always happy to advise on whether your boiler has adequate ventilation Call us(clickable)
When the temperature drops below zero, the boiler's external condensate pipe can freeze. The boiler will then cut out as a safety precaution. You can melt the ice by pouring warm water over the pipe, but you can prevent the boiler from freezing by insulating the pipes or by keeping the heating on a constant low setting when it is very cold.
A faulty boiler can produce carbon monoxide - a gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Carbon monoxide can kill, which is why every home should have a carbon monoxide detector, preferably with an alarm. Put it near the boiler and check it every month to make sure its working.
