We don’t expect our customers to understand the full workings of a central heating system because after all, that’s what we are here for. However, knowing the basics of central heating system maintenance offers you the chance to save significant time, money and effort when the time comes that your central heating system ceases to work properly.
Below we have highlighted a couple of tips which can make a substantial difference.
Your Temperature Becomes Unregulated
One of the most common issues facing a central heating system is a failure to adhere to the set temperature. Whether the temperature either falls too low or goes too high, this can be the first sign towards several other issues.
Did you know that a crooked thermostat can affect temperature regulation? Therefore even taking the step to fix it straight on a wall can have a positive impact. To do this, make sure that you straighten the thermostat and tighten the screws to hold it in place.
If regulation problems persist, try fixing the heat anticipator in your central heating system.
Is Your Heat Refusing To Come On?
If your heating system is electric and is failing to produce any heat, it could be that you are facing an issue with your circuit breaker. If a fuse has blown and tripped the circuit breaker, you will need to replace the fuse and flip the breaker back on to solve this problem.
If the problem still persists, it could be that there is a problem with the thermostat itself and it could be as simple a fix as changing the batteries if you are using a digital thermostat.
Simple cleaning the thermostat is a vital part of basic maintenance of central heating systems too.
