Central Heating Power Flush Glasgow 

After a hectic winter of power flushing central heating systems our power flush machine has thrown in the towel, Here at Glasgow Boiler Repairs we have had to invest in a bigger and better power flush machine the Norstrom Pro-Flush thermal unit, this machine is by far more superior to any other power flush machine on the market today  and benefits from a built in heater which is useful where the boiler is dead due to the sludge in the central heating system being that bad, the powerful pump in the power flush machine also reduces the amount of time spent on the flush and also increases the amount of sludge removed from the system, we are also exited to announce we are now a member of the power flush association, being a member of this association gives us a better edge on our competitors with better knowledge on power flushing and extra training.

 

Give us a call today and you can experience first hand how good the new equipment we have is, having a power flush on your heating system can save you on costly repairs if your system is badly sludged up or even worse a new boiler replacement if you leave your system untreated, with pricing starting at £250 its not worth taking the chance

Landlord Gas Safety certificate Glasgow

  1. Have you had a landlord gas safety certificate that has failed due to your flue being in a void ?
 
If this is the case you will probably be wondering why has my heating engineer told me my appliance is now unsafe to use when it has passed every year before this, well gas safety legislation is updated constantly to make sure the public is safe, there is always a reason behind any update or change to the legislation, the reason behind this one was down to the house builders as the installations where rushed at every stage and although everything looked good at the time as the flues where concealed in either ceiling voids or boxed in, the problems would occur in months or even years to come when boilers started to fail or black marks where shown on the plasterboard, it was then that more and more heating engineers had found the flue had not been correctly installed or parts of the flue had come separated, this was highly dangerous as carbon monoxide would be getting pumped into the voids and entering the property or even neighbouring properties, there would never appear to be any cause for alarm during any service or landlord gas safety inspection on the boiler as the flue pipe was hidden, it was then after so many faults had came to light that Gas Safe had decided to change the regulations on how to deal with flues in voids, your boiler may well be safe if the flue is fitted in avoid but to be certain there is no way of knowing unless inspection hatches are fitted to visually inspect this.
 
Most of the new built flats in the centre of Glasgow and Glasgow harbour are known to have issue with the boiler flue ran in the void, if you have had a landlord gas safety certificate and this has been flagged up then you must get inspections hatches fitted as you are putting your tenants life in danger, if you have not had any check carried out but are aware your flue is fitted in a void then we advise you to have the system checked by a suitably qualified heating engineer and any inspection hatches that are required to be fitted, there is also a requirement for any rooms that the flue may pass through to have a carbon monoxide detector fitted.
 
We have been fitting the inspection hatches for our Glasgow landlords and letting agents since this legislation came in so we know where and where not the hatches can be installed, in 90% of the jobs we go to that require this there is no need for any redecoration works after we have been and we are normally aware of where exactly to fit the hatches as more than likely we have fitted them in the same building before, we charge £50 for each hatch we fit an d this can also be combined at the same time as your landlord gas safety check.
 
If you have any questions regarding this issue then please feel free to give us a call and we will talk you through the process.

Boiler repairs Glasgow

It is vital that you opt for an experienced gas engineer as there are numerous contractors in Glasgow who employ gas engineers that do not have the required experience to deal with boiler repairs, locating a fault on boilers requires a huge amount of  experience as not diagnosing your boiler fault correctly could leave you hundreds of pounds out of pocket on parts that are not required, Glasgow boiler repairs regularly attend boilers where previous gas engineers have misdiagnosed a fault and we have then stepped in sometimes where no parts have been required and had the boiler up and running within 10 minutes of being there.

Storage heater repairs Glasgow

Is your storage heater playing up, not giving enough heat or just not working at all ?

Glasgow boiler repairs attend properties frequently to repair storage heater faults, there is one fault we keep coming across on a regular basis, the dreaded overheat thermostat, the over heat thermostats on these heaters to not need much persuasion to trip and time and time again we are called out to repair these and our engineers will simply reset the switch and the heater is back on again, the fault can be caused by a fault on the main thermostat not cutting off when it is has reached temperature but more often than not it is down to the home owner or tenant, having items to close to the front of your heater can cost you unnecessary call outs, manufacturers instructions on storage heaters will tell you to leave any items at least 1m away from the front of your heater, there should also be no clothes left to dry on the heater or radiator covers fitted over your heater.

If you know you have had an item in front of your 
storage heater or left clothing over grills and your heater has suddenly stopped working you will need a qualified engineer to reset your thermostat as the part itself is located inside the heater and could cause an electric shock if you are not competent on what you are doing.

You may simply need a bit of advise on how to operate your storage heater if you have not had electric heating before, give us a call and we can talk you through the process of heating up your home in the best way possible.

call today to get your storage heater running at full health again or if you have had enough with costly repairs and looking for an energy efficient replacement then we can provide you a free quotation.

Landlord Gas Safety Certificate Glasgow

We arrived to do a landlord gas safety certificate in a Glasgow property on Monday, the appliance we were carrying out a safety check on was a Baxi Bermuda back boiler unit, the first thing we noticed was staining on the wall around the appliance which suggests the appliance is not burning gas correctly and producing carbon monoxide, we stripped the gas appliance back and upon further investigation we found the filter was blocked full of dust and dog hair, after speaking to the landlord we found out that there had been no service or valid landlord gas safety certificate carried out for the previous three years, the back boiler unit was given a full strip down service and was then safe to use again, Glasgow boiler repairs come across issues like this on a weekly basis so this is why it's important you have a landlord gas safety inspection carried out or have a qualified gas engineer check your appliance annually. Glasgow boiler repairs provide landlord gas safety certificates from as little as £45.

Glasgow boiler repairs

Glasgow Boiler Repairs get called out to many types of boiler repairs but the one we come across the most is boiler's loosing pressure or needing to be topped up regularly, there can be many factors cause this and is not always easy to identify where the issue lies, it could be down to a simple leak from radiator, pipework or on the boiler itself, if this is the case then it is a simple case of repairing the leak but if not then it can be down to a faulty pressure relief valve other wise known as a PRV or your expansion vessel could need re-pressurised or replaced if burst, a tell take sign if your expansion vessel needs investigated is if you notice that your pressure gauge on your boiler rises to 3 bar or you notice water leaking from the pressure relief valve which is located outside normally under your boiler, another cause of your pressure rising could be the pipe going to your expansion vessel is blocked or your system has no bypass in place.

 

You can carry out the following checks before calling out an engineer, keep an eye on your gauge on your boiler if it holds its pressure when no heating is on then your fault will be with the boiler itself or system by-pass, a bypass on your central heating system is normally one radiator that is left without a thermostatic control ( TRV ) this is normally the hallway or bathroom radiator, there may also be one already on the system pipework but if your having issues with pressure rising on your boiler then remove one of the thermostatic valve heads, these can be taken off without needing to drain down your heating system or any escape of water, they can be taken off by hand and no tools are required, the reason a system bypass is required is if all your thermostats on your radiators reach temperature then they will stop the flow of water to that radiator but your boiler is still running and requires a circuit to go around thus having one radiator without one will provide a circuit when all other radiators reach temperature, if you have are still having issues after this and can see no signs of any leak then it is time to call a qualified gas engineer out who can deal with your boiler repair as it will be more than likely the issue is related to your boilerHow much will it cost if the issue is to do with the boiler ?
 
Most of the time the expansion vessel can be re-pressurised, if not and it needs replaced then prices can vary depending on make of boiler from £60 to up to £180, If your pressure relief valve is faulty this will need replaced and can range from £20-£60 depending on model, most times if you need your pressure relief valve changed then you would also have an issue with your expansion vessel, both should be looked at before just changing one item as they normally go hand in hand with each other.

Gas Safety Certificates Glasgow

 

 

Are you a Glasgow landlord and just received your landlord gas safety inspection, are you looking at the notes on the bottom of your certificate wondering what they mean ?

 

We will talk you through the most common faults that appear on Gas Safety Certificates and what they mean, there are three different classifications.

 

The first is Not to Current Standards ( NCS ) this will generally mean that at the time your appliance or installation was installed then it was okay but as regulations have been updated over the years it has changed and your appliance no longer meets the criteria, in this case your appliance can be left on with no further action being taken as long as it is safe, we always recommend it is brought up to standard but it may not be viable to do so, the following types of faults would fall under NCS, no electrical bonding at meter, no FSD on hob or cooker, flue not sealed internally, if you have a NCS issue with an appliance that has just been installed then have the engineer re-attend to rectify faults as it should not have been left like this.

 

The second is At Risk (AR) which is more serious, this can be where one or more faults are present that may cause danger to life or property, this requires urgent attention and faults or repairs should be rectified to ensure gas appliance becomes safe to use again, when the installation or appliance falls under this scenario the the appliance will be labelled At Risk and tenant or home owner will be advised not to use, the following type of faults would fall in this category, boiler flue fitted in void with no access hatches to inspect void, gas pipework located in cavity wall, pipework showing signs of corrosion or damage but passes tightness test, if your boiler has been given this classification on your landlord gas safety certificate then it must not be used and brought up to standard as soon as possible.

 

The last is Immediately Dangerous ( ID ) this is the most serious of them all and with your permission your gas appliance will be disconnected from the gas supply and warning notice filled out, in this case you will not have a choice to use or not to use and if permission is refused to disconnect gas appliance then the gas supplier can shut the gas off going in to your property, the typical examples of this situation are, gas appliance spilling carbon monoxide or staining on the wall beside appliance, gas leak found on appliance or pipework above acceptable level, boiler flue blocked, if the issue is related to a gas escape then the Glasgow gas emergency number should be called to investigate further, after this it will require the works to be carried out to bring back up to standards and new landlord gas safety certificate issued.

 

If you have had any of the faults above listed on your gas safety certificate or know you have any of these faults then get in contact with us and we can advise you how to proceed, we deal with these type of faults on a day to day basis in Glasgow when dealing with gas safety checks for landlords and letting agents.
