How Can You Tell If There’s A Blockage In Your Central Heating System?

Posted on: October 31st, 2011 No Comments

Regardless of the type of central heating system you have there are two basic types of blockages that can happen. The first is caused by a build up of a type of sludge that gathers in the bottom of your radiators. You can test for this pretty quickly by turning your heating system on and checking for cold spots in the lower part of your radiators – this sludge settles so you can expect these cold spots to be a direct indication of a blockage on that part of your radiator system.

The second type of blockage tat can crop up is trapped air inside the system. Now this should all have been bled when the system was first installed and most modern heating systems have a type of valve that allows the system to bleed this air off itself but sometimes that isn’t enough. How can you tell if you have an air lock in your heating system? Noise is usually the first give away and you can expect lots of it – especially banging noises when the heating is first turned on.

Alternatively if you check the upper portion of your radiators when your heating is on you might find cold patches there which are also a direct indication of air being trapped inside.
