How to deal with a central heating system emergency

Posted on: October 11th, 2011 No Comments

The first instinct of the average householder to a central heating system emergency is panic. The boiler, the pipes, the radiators – when anything goes wrong these simple things take on the look of a major feat of engineering.

There are many different things that can categories a central heating system emergency as an actual emergency. One of the most common causes is a burst or leaking pipe. Usually you will notice this in a central heating system quite early due to the pool of water or a wet ceiling or wall, but what should you do in this situation?

First of all, it’s imperative that you turn off the heating and the water. Also remember to turn off any electrical appliances that are near the leakages.

The best thing you can possibly do is reduce the amount of water which can possible leak out. If your central heating system runs on solid fuel then this will also cause it to die out which can reduce any possible danger. Finally, you should turn the hot water taps on after a few minutes so you can make sure that the system is completely empty of water.

Next, you should quickly call ADI, on 0800 731 3843, so an engineer can be rushed out to you and can begin repairing the damage as quickly as possible. If you delay while there is a central heating system emergency then it could cause additional damage to your home and, as a result, cost you a lot more money to repair the damage than if you had called ADI immediately.
