When central heating systems run for years on end without being properly maintained, they will, over several years, accumulate lots of sludge inside the piping, and the radiators. This leads to inefficient central heating systems in London. It causes blockages, slows circulation, and makes it much more difficult for radiators to heat up, and keep warm.
The result is that boiler installations will have to work much harder, as will your water pump. It will hit you hard where it hurts most – your wallet, if left to completely corrode your central heating system, meaning you will need to install a new boiler and radiators.
The build up of sludge in central heating systems can cause your boiler to go wrong at the most inconvenient time, leaving you cold & out of pocket
Most people are anxious to save money when it comes down to their heating bills, and getting regular maintenance done is something that many people shy away from until something goes wrong. The problem is that whenever these things do go wrong, it’s never at the right time. In fact, it is usually the most inconvenient time.
The importance of regular boiler maintenance
It is of course necessary to have any gas appliances regularly maintained. As well as ensuring that they won’t let you down unexpectedly, (in the middle of a cold spell during winter for example), it’s also an opportunity to make sure that they are burning the gas properly, and don’t emit any carbon monoxide. It’s also key to make sure that the engineers you choose to do the maintenance are properly gas safe qualified, as all of our fitters are at CW Services, Plumbing & Heating. It’s one of the things that make us one of the most trustworthy boiler maintenance London based companies there is.
We won’t bleed you dry – not in the financial sense anyway
If households were to have their central heating systems bled at the same time they service the boiler, this would also help to safeguard the system’s operation. It would help stop any central heating system from eventually becoming very inefficient, and it’s something that CW Plumbing (central heating service specialists) could easily and cheaply do for you at the same time. It’s cheaper of course because it only involves one house call, and not two.
