Across Glasgow, there are quite a few varying styles of home. From flats and apartments to Town Houses, bungalows, semi detached sandstone homes from the Victorian era and of course new build homes.
A lot of the older Victrorian era homes were never built with heating systems as standard so you will generally find the combi boiler is in a utility room of some description. In bungalows, you will probably find that the boiler is ina cupboard in or next to the kitchen that doubles up as a storage/larder. And in new build flats, it is most often found in the hall cupboard.
But this week we were carrying out boiler repairs where simply being able to access the boiler proved to be the biggest challenge.
The combi boiler was located in a strange corner cupboard in the utility room of a Victorian Sandstone house in the South Side of Glasgow. The exhaust for the boiler ran across the ceiling to the furthest exterior wall (for reasons that we still can’t quite figure out). And to top it all off, to simply get to the boiler we had to remove two sets of skis, a set of golf clubs, a few random large sections of wooden pole from a previous DIY job and some other ‘stuff’.
And once all of this was removed – simply so we could access the boiler. We got to spend the next hour of our day in the dark with a head torch as the only light….while sitting on top of a ladder.
We reagard ourselves as one of the best boiler repair companies in Glasgow. But sometime, it turns out that simply accessing the boiler to do the repair job is the hardest job of all.
