CondenSure Installation London
Remember back in 2018 when the UK was hit with a huge cold weather front, named the ‘Beast from the East’ by the media, bringing massive drops in temperatures and heavy snowfalls?
Many households experienced boiler ‘shutdowns’ due to these zero temperatures, which left them without heating. Freezing conditions coupled with a boiler shutdown is the last thing you need in severe weather conditions. The interesting thing though, is most, if not all of these boiler ‘shutdowns’ in sub-zero temperatures could have been avoided!
No heating or hot water in freezing conditions is usually due to the condensate pipe freezing. Before it froze you had plenty of both as your boiler was working absolutely fine. The cause is the condensate pipe becoming blocked with ice - the result - complete boiler shutdown!
Here’s what to do to prevent your condensate pipe freezing and the boiler breaking down every time the temperature drops below zero!
Your condensate pipe runs from behind the boiler to the outside wall and into a drain or soakaway (the correct distance from the property, and the correct depth, to avoid any dampness returning into the house - always follow manufacturer's recommendations). Ideally, the pipe should be 30mm or 32mm OD (outside diameter) before passing through the wall. So, check the condensate pipe diameter and change to the correct diameter if necessary.
The pipes could be lagged with flexible polyethylene, which is ideal for heating systems or hot and cold water pipes, it protects against frost and minimises the risk of condensation on pipes.
However, if you have a Worcester Bosch boiler fitted they have an accessory called a CondenSure (see below)
