BOILER REPAIRS

Always Prepared.

If your boiler is not providing heating or hot water as it should, we can quickly diagnose the fault and get the repair work done as soon as possible minimising the inconvenience to yourself. We work closely with a number of boiler manufacturers and are available to call 24/7. Most repairs can be done on the day if the spare parts are in stock, otherwise it would be a maximum of 48hrs in most cases.

Some basic checks you can carry out yourself before you call on help:

  • Is there power to the boiler?

  • Check for lights on the display panel

  • Is the switch to the boiler on/check and/or replace fuse (3amp)

  • For Combination boilers – is there enough pressure in the boiler?

  • Is the pressure dial between 1bar – 1.5bar? If not switch the boiler off and top up the pressure using the filing loop.

  • Make sure the external controls are calling for heat

  • Ensure the room thermostat is turned up.

  • Ensure the time clock is calling for heat.

  • If the boiler has a pilot light, is it lit?

  • If no, refer to the manual for the lighting procedure

 

If none of the above checks solve the problem, it is likely that you need further assistance; feel free to give us a call to discuss the problem and arrange a visit to rectify your boiler breakdown in Bristol.

LANDLORD CERTIFICATES

Fast and efficient gas certificates for your piece of mind.

As a landlord, you are aware you are legally obliged to have all gas appliances checked for safety at your rented property under gas safety (installation and use) regulation 1998. Why not let AR Heating take care of the stress of remembering by inputting you into our database setup for automatic reminders.

If you wish, we are more than happy to liaise directly with your tenants to arrange the inspection/service to save you time. If there is anything important picked up during the visit we will notify you straight away with the certificate sent to you usually on the same day of the inspection

Current charges for services:

  • Landlord Gas Safety Certificate (boiler and hob) = £90 + VAT

  • An additional £20 + VAT will be charged if a back boiler is located on the property as these require around double the service time.

  • Each subsequent appliance = £20 +VAT

  • Fires = £30 extra +VAT

If you need a landlord gas safety certificate in Bristol, feel free to call to arrange.

POWER FLUSHING

Keep your heating system clean.

The build-up of sludge in your central heating system is inevitable as it contains different metals combined with water that can over time cause corrosion and result in the following problems:

  • Cold spots on radiators and/or radiators not heating up
    effectively

  • Boiler making a banging or overheating (kettleing) noise due
    to sludge and scale build up

  • Reduced life of the central heating pump (having to work harder against the sludge)

  • Inconsistent or no hot water (combination boilers) due to the sludge build up in the heat exchanger of your boiler

 

If you feel that your boiler system is not functioning how it used to, then maybe a power flush is what you need to rejuvenate an old system. At AR heating we are happy to come along to your property and test your system and advise whether the outlay of a power flush is a worthwhile investment for you. In addition to the power flush, we can fit thermostatic radiator valves and highly recommend a magnetic system filter to prevent any future problems.

GAS SAFETY INSPECTIONS.

Keep your home safe.

What is a gas safety check (CP12)?

A thorough assessment of your property to check gas safety. The full inspection involves checking

  • the appliances for gas tightness

  • the standing and working pressure if test points are available

  • the burner pressure/gas rate against the manufacturer's data plate

  • the satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation

  • the satisfactory operation of safety devices

  • for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of brackets (where appropriate)

 

In addition, the engineer will also

  • test the flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion

  • investigate any evidence of unsafe operation and report to the landlord

  • issue the landlord or home owner a gas safety record
