How to keep your boiler happy!

How to keep your boiler happy!

The temperature’s a little higher than last week, but it’s still pretty chilly in Sidcup and London!

And with at least another month of winter left, have you been feeling like your boiler isn’t firing on all cylinders?

If the thought of waking up on a cold February morning to a stone-cold shower or no central heating makes you shiver, check out our tips for ensuring a long and healthy life for your boiler.


Keep your eyes on the dials

Most modern combi boilers have an adjustable pressure gauge. Check your pressure regularly to keep your boiler running at optimal performance. The manual will tell you what your model’s pressure should be - normally between 1 and 1.5 bar.


Wrap up warm

Your water tank and pipes like being warm just as much as you do, so consider insulating them! Pipe lagging and insulating jackets for water tanks are relatively cheap and easy to fit, will help your boiler run more efficiently, and save you money.
