Boiler Service Ingatestone
Are you looking for a boiler service in Ingatestone?
Technical Gas Ltd are local Gas Safe Engineers based in Brentwood. It is crucial to have your boiler serviced annually. An annual boiler service will ensure that the boiler is running properly, safely, and effectively so that your home is maintained at the correct temperature. Regular maintenance will lengthen the lifespan of your boiler and decrease the likelihood of faults. If you have not had a power flush for a few years we would also recommend this. The goal of a power flush is to thoroughly clean your boiler and heating system with the intention of improving the water quality of your system by removing sludge, rust, and other unrelated particles. Energy efficiency is crucial right now, so we also recommend that you think about having your entire central heating system power flushed along with your boiler service. We have a page on our website here that gives you more information on your central heating system.

How Do you Keep Your Boiler Running Efficiently Throughout The Year?
So what can you do yourself to aid the efficiency of your boilers performance throughout the year. Ensuring the radiators are bled at least once a year can be a part of this. This is a simple job that you can do with a radiator key or a screwdriver. Your home’s radiators can often get air-trapped within them, leaving cold spots as a result. The radiator can’t get hot enough because of these air pockets. This air can be released by bleeding the radiators. Occasionally, paint may be sprayed to radiator valves, making bleeding radiators difficult. The last thing you want to do is damage the radiator valve, so please contact us if you have any questions.
It’s a good idea to balance the radiators as well, especially if the radiators closest to the boiler are cooler than those farther away. While balancing radiators can increase the circulation of heat throughout the house, it is more challenging than bleeding them.
The last piece of advice we have is to lag your pipes before the winter freezes them. It is quite easy and cheap to install ready-to-use lagging, which is essentially insulation by wrapping it around your external pipes, especially if they are located in an area such as the loft, which if uninsulated will get very cold during the coldest months. You might avoid the trouble and expense of a boiler breakdown at a time when you most need your heat because the lagging prevents the pipes from freezing.
