What Sort Of Boiler Do I Have

There are 3 general types of boiler systems.

Each type of boiler and heating system has their own unique setup. For example, the open vented heating system and sealed heating system uses motorised valves to control the heating and hot water demand. For a basic description of each system click the button below.

What Is The Black Water In My Radiators

The water that you see coming out of your radiator is your heating system water that heats your radiators and, if you have one, your hot water cylinder. The black water has magnetite, bits of dissolved metal, mixed into it. Over time this will build up and cause your radiators to develop cold spots.
One way to prevent this build up is to have a magnetic filter installed. This filter catches the magnetite on a powerful magnet and can then be cleaned off. Take a look at our video below for a demonstration.

Why Is My Boiler Leaking

There are a few reasons why your boiler may be leaking. Below we have listed the most common reasons for a leaking boiler.

  • One of the pipes inside the boiler is leaking
  • The condensation has built up and leaking out of the trap (if present)
  • Rain water has got inside the boiler via the flue
  • Your boilers heat exchanger has split and developed a leak

How Do I Repressurise My Boiler

If you have a combination boiler or a sealed system, your boiler requires adequate pressure to operate properly. If it falls below that pressure your boiler may turn itself off. The video below shows you how to repressurise your boiler. Even if your boiler is not the same and you have a gauge elsewhere, the principle is the same.

How Do I Reset My Boiler

Most modern boilers will, if they stop working, show an error code. This can be a flashing light on the boiler giving you a sequence, or a digital display with an error code. Because there are hundreds if not thousands of different boilers over the years, it’s very difficult to list all the ways to reset your boiler.

The easiest way to find out how to reset your boiler is to consult your manual, if you don’t have it to hand then then a quick google search will in most cases give you a downloadable manual.

Most modern boilers will have a reset option, either by way of a button that you press or turn a dial to the “reset position”. If you are unable to reset your boiler then we can come and give you a diagnosis of the problem and provide you with a fixed fee boiler repair.
