It is there to keep you and your home warm throughout the cold winter days and nights but do you know the ins and outs of your central heating system, how it works and what you can do if a fault occurs?
Let’s have a look at the different parts that make up your home heating system. First, you will have a boiler which is responsible for the hot water in your system. Depending on the central heating system you have, your boiler may either be an integral part or will be used only for hot water supply. Most systems use a combi boiler which heats the water for both your central heating and that hot shower you love. So now, how exactly is this heat distributed throughout your home? Enter the radiator. The hot water from your boiler is sent along the central heating pipes to the various radiators throughout your home which then heats up the whole house.
If there is one radiator not working, you will need to check to see whether this is a problem with only the radiator or a bigger problem within the central heating system itself. Giving you control over the entire system is the thermostat from where you can regulate exactly how warm you want your house to be.
You may be able to control the temperature in your house with a central heating system that is in good working order but once you find a fault you will need to call in your local central heating specialist or plumber to fix it – for central heating in Leeds try a specialist plumber like FAB Gas. Your fault could be either in the boiler, within one of your radiators or even in the thermostat. A qualified professional is trained to find the fault and fix it without any further hassle.
