Since it's difficult to remember all the details of central heating problems and gas boiler problems we deal with, we decided to keep this log of some of the problems and how we've attempted to sort them out. Putting this information online allows other people to look for clues and ideas. We’re still struggling to find time to bring this site up to date, but we live in hope.
Too often gas service engineers and central heating engineers lack backup and support and we find ourselves trying to re-invent the wheel. That's particularly true for small companies. Boiler manufacturers' technical advice departments can be very helpful but they can also be patronizing and often take some time to answer. Where we get really good service from tech advice departments I'll try to report it.
Mid November and the weather, at least in the south, has stayed remarkably mild. Even so, most of us have our heating systems running and the faults are showing up.
October to Christmas is the busiest time for heating engineers and you may have to wait if you have problems. If it’s extra radiators you want, or a boiler replacement that could wait a few weeks you’d probably do much better waiting until after the Christmas break. Unless the weather decides to bring us arctic conditions, January is usually much quieter than November and December.
House prices continue to be ridiculously high and increasing year on year. Many parts of the country are rising over 5% per year and in large parts of the south of England the rise is 8%. It may make us feel wealthy if we’ve paid off our mortgages but it makes it difficult, or near impossible, for many of our children to buy at all. They may be condemned to live in second rate rented flats, paying someone else’s mortgage. When are we going to work out that we need build more houses? The government’s plan for 200,000 is woefully inadequate, if it ever happens!
There are lots of skilled people out there and we'd like your ideas. If we've got something wrong or you can improve on what we've done please contact us. Or if you've sorted out problems and want to share how, we'll be happy to add your ideas.
We'll add information as we have time. You can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're sorry but we can't deal with individual queries about boiler and heating problems at the moment. We just haven't enough time. We're thinking about the possibility of running a forum in the future though, where individual questions can be posted, but we're not there yet!
