Boiler Maintenance Tips to Consider 

So you're looking to keep your boiler in great condition? Below are just a few maintenance tips we'd like to share so you can make more informed decisions about what to do with your boiler. Also worth mentioning that you should never attempt a DIY job on your boiler and always contact a Gas Safe registered engineer if you notice anything unusual about your boiler. 

Finally, before we get right into the tips, you can find out more about our boiler services on the website; including installation, servicing and repairs.

Lag the Pipes 

The boiler's external condensate pipe can freeze when the temperature outside drops below zero. Thus, causing the boiler to cut out as part of the safety precaution. You can prevent this by pouring warm water over the ice on the pipe to cause the ice to melt.  Alternatively, there are two other options; insulate the pipes or keeping the heating on low constantly to keep the pipe from freezing up. 

Power Flushing 

Power flushing is another great option for boiler maintenance as it removes all the sludge, rust and debris from your central heating system. We have previously blogged about power flushing and the reasons/benefits. Also, If you'd like to find out more about how we can help with power flushing, see our service page for power flushing

Annual Boiler Servicing

Having a Gas Safe registered heating engineer perform an annual boiler servicing is anther great tip for keeping your boiler in good condition. This is because they know exactly what to look for and can take care of the problems or faults they discover. Here at Smart Gas Plumbing & Heating, we offer boiler servicing, so check it out on the service page for boiler servicing
