At this time of year, just as schools stop for the summer, you also find a lot of people without kids returning from holiday after taking advantage of cheaper holiday deals.
And that means that every year, we get a few calls from people with heating issues after their homes have sat empty for a couple of weeks.
So many people effectively turn their boilers off when they go on holiday – it makes sense. Why would you want to heat your house when you are not in it. But by turning of the boiler, your pressure can drop. And a drop in pressure can trigger a boiler shut down when after two weeks of sitting idol, it suddenly gets called into action.
And that is exactly what happened to one of our customers in Kelvinside in the West End of Glasgow. They returned home after a nice holiday, threw their holiday clothes in the wash and went to have a relaxing bath. But the cold water kept running with no sign of hot water. Normally in a combi boiler, the hot water begins to run through after a 10-20 second gap. But here, the cold water kept flowing.
The home owner checked the boiler and was greeted with some red flashing lights and a code number. Now you would be amazed how many customers, after getting a new boiler installed simply throw the manual away. So they had no idea what the problem was and they had no way to check. So the did the next best thing and called JSL Heating.
One of our gas boiler engineers was at their door at the agreed upon time, checked through the system, diagnosed the problem and fixed it. It just required a top up of pressure in the system but while we were there, we conducted a check of the system to make sure everything was running smoothly.
If you ever have a problem with your boiler and don’t know what to do, simply call the friendly, professional and skilled heating experts JSL Heating.
