simple things that you can do to look after your boiler
Keep a careful eye on the pressure gauge, keeping the pressure somewhere between 1 and 1.5 bar is ideal.Keep it topped up at all times, get into the habit of checking it weekly.
Keep an eye on the pilot light, make sure that the pilot colour is a nice blue! Anything less then call out the professionals.
Make sure all your pipes are lagged, as soon as the temperature drops, pipes can freeze. Ready-made lagging tubes can be bought for pennies from most d-i-y stores.
Make sure that all your radiators are working properly, without any air locks, get into the habit of checking on a regular basis.
Remember to set the timer on your boiler to suit your lifestyle, having plenty of heat and hot water in the morning and evening when you are around is the way to go.
If you haven’t had it done for some time, then it’s maybe time to consider having a power flush, this will help to extend the life of your heating system.
Install a ‘carbon monoxide‘ alarm to warn you of any leaks, you can’t see or smell carbon monoxide and it can be lethal.
