Over the summer months our central heating systems are getting a well-earned break, but come the autumn will your boiler deliver the heat when you need it?
To keep your boiler and radiator valves in good condition, it's a good idea to turn your central heating on for 10 minutes each month. Set the radiator valves to mid-position and after the 10 minutes check all the radiators are getting hot.
Doing this helps to increase water and air movement through the system and ensures the boiler and valves are operating correctly.
If you things don't seem right, report it to us as a repair - that'll give us good time to fix any problems before the cooler weather arrives.
Cold spots on your radiators?
If your radiators aren't getting hot all over, you may need to bleed them. Watch this video to find out how you can easily do this yourself.
