Home News Heating & Plumbing Boilers Our Top Tips To Keep Your Boiler Running

PBT Installations, boiler engineers and heating system experts based in Gloucestershire, can help you to optimise the efficiency of your boiler and reduce its running costs.

Follow these simple steps:

  • Annual Service – Make sure that your boiler is serviced once every year by a gas safe registered engineer. Even if you think that your boiler is in a working condition. Make sure your boiler is ready to take the strain when the winter months come. Contact PBT to see how we can service your boiler
  • Turn On Your Heating – Even when the sun is shining, boilers can seize up. It is recommended that you turn you boiler on for around 10 minutes every so often.
  • Bleed Your Radiators – Air can get trapped inside the radiator system. Release the air by ‘bleeding’ the radiators. Without doing this you will add more stress to the boiler which in the longer run will be more costly.  You will need a radiator key for this.
  • Look For The Blue Flame – Your boiler should be showing a clear blue flame. Any other colour such as yellow, there could be something wrong.
