Tips For Troubleshooting Your Central Heating

Posted on: October 31st, 2011 No Comments

Are you worried that there’s something wrong with your central heating system but you can’t quite seem to put your finger on it? Here are some tips that you can use to troubleshoot your central heating issue to try and figure out what’s wrong.

First off you need to listen for any strange noises coming from your heating system. Are there any unusual rattles, croaks or banging noises when you turn the central heating system on or off? Is your boiler in particular making strange noises when it’s in operation? If the only noises that you hear seem to be coming from the boiler then the issue is most likely located there – that’s just common sense.

The next part of the heating circuit you need to check are the radiators. Are there are any cold patches on the radiators? Where are these cold patches located? Do they stay cold even after the central heating has been on for quite some time or do they disappear after several minutes?

If the cold patches on your radiators are on the bottom part of them it could indicate a problem with a sludge build up inside. But if the cold spots are towards the upper part of the radiator it would most likely indicate a pocket of trapped air preventing the radiator from heating properly.

To put your mind at ease why not just have ADI Powerflushing investigate the problem for you instead?
