2. Boiler Pressure

Boiler breakdownsYour boiler will not run properly if the pressure is too low. The right pressure is vital for your boilers health. It is easy to check the boiler pressure on your gas heating system as there is a dial on the front of the boiler. For oil boilers this is a little more tricky as oil pressure is set from the oil pump. If you feel pressure is an issue for your boiler contact Belfast Heating Services today and let our boiler repair specialists put your mind at rest.

3. Bleed Radiators

Boiler breakdownsIf you find your radiators are not heating up properly, you may need to bleed them. When you bleed your radiator you release trapped air which prevents them from filling correctly which keeps part or all of your radiators cold. When you ensure your radiators are working properly you are extending the lifespan and performance of your boiler. If you need your radiators balanced call Belfast Heating Services and we can help have your heating system working to the highest efficiency it should be thus keeping your home warm and safe.

4. Pipe Insulation

If this is something you cannot see yourself doing then phone the B.H.S team and we can help you. Be Warm, Be Safe.
