You may think that the job of a gas heating specialist like JSL Heating is all about fixing boilers and repairing boilers. But it is a lot more than that. And todays job is a classic example of what we do at JSL Heating.
So we have been in the South Side of Glasgow replacing old pipes under the floor of a sandstone home that was built in 1901. The pipework below the floor transported the hot water from the boiler to all the radiators in the ground floor of the home. The problem wasn’t that the pipes were leaking, burst or blocked. It was that they were old pipes in a large pipe diameter size. It meant that the boiler was having to push out a lot more hot water and force it through these wide pipes to get to the radiators. This was inefficient and a lot of heat was being lost in the transfer of the water from the boiler to the radiators.
Now because this is an old home, it was easy enough to get access under the floor to replace these pipes. It meant that we didn’t have to remove any floorboards or lift up any carpets.
The job had been booked in with a customer earlier in the year but we had agreed to wait until Spring time when it was less important having the boiler shut off for the day while we replaced the existing large piping.
So there you go. If you live in an older home that still has some of the older heating piping, get it replaced to make your home that little bit more efficient.
