Do I Need to Hire a Local Professional 'Central Heating Engineer'?

A boiler is the heart of the central heating system. Thanks to the boiler, your home can stay warm and cosy, especially during winter. If your boiler, circulator pump and heating controls are all working correctly but you find that your radiators aren’t getting warm and that the room temperature is dropping then this is an indicator that you have central heating circulation problems. Another symptom is if when your bleed or drain a radiator corrosion debris, dirty black or brown water also know as sludge is present.

A central heating engineer is expertly trained to identify and fix any circulatory, clear pipework of air locks or mechanical blockages with your system. They can perform a powerflush to clear sludge, replace specific parts of your boiler or fix stuck thermostat radiator valves, and even fit a new boiler, should the need arise.

What Do Heating Circulation Engineers Near You Do?

Heating circulation engineers are different from plumbers and other home service engineers because they specialise in boiler and thermostat fitting, removal and maintenance. A heating circulation engineer will provide:

  • Central heating circulation service: The issues with heat circulation must first be assessed. Engineers will check if the boiler is operating well and then check the pressure of the burner. They will examine the pumps, radiator valves, feed and expansion cistern for signs of over-pumping or sucking-in through the open vent.
  • Central heating circulation repair: Once the problem has been diagnosed, whether it’s a boiler issue or a faulty pump, the heating circulation engineer can efficiently carry out the repair. Once work has been completed, the engineer will re-examine the whole system, including the water, just to check that there are no further problems.
  • Central heating circulation maintenance: A heating engineer can offer a maintenance service that guarantees your central heating system will continue to properly function after they have fixed or replaced it.
  • Home central heating installation and removal: Engineers can replace any type of central heating system, from a lone gas boiler unit to a full pipework system. They can also offer installation of central heating systems for keeping your home warm, removing the existing system first if necessary.
  • Assessments and safety inspections: Are you concerned your central heating may not be safe or up to required standards? Heating engineers are qualified to carry out checks and inspections.
