Gas boiler and central heating problems and fault finding

Red flame logo of the Free Heating Advice websiteWe post individual fault-finds as blogs. You can use the Search icon to find anything we've written that relates to your problem. The list of planned posts is long but free time, as always, is short!

We're also continuing to write articles dealing with common central heating problems like radiator balancingsystem pressureexpansion vessel faults, radiator valves and air locks. We'll be dealing with subjects like gross and net efficiency, carbon monoxide, combustion, boiler types and more. The articles are static pages but from time to time we may amend and improve them to keep them up to date.

No one has all the answers but you might find some useful ones here. For years, too many heating engineers had to try to find answers working alone. Help from manufacturers' tech services departments could be patchy and we often ended up trying to re-invent the wheel. The web is a great place to share information and experience; what has worked for us might work for you too.

Working on gas boilers is limited to Gas Safe Registered engineers. If you're not Gas Safe Registered you may at least find clues here to point you in the right direction.
