Worcester Bosh 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)

What's not included in this service?
The CondenseSure™ accessory is a simple and low-cost solution to reduce/eliminate the chances of externally routed condense pipes freezing in harsh winter conditions, even when temperatures have dropped as low as -15⁰.
The device is compatible with any condenser boiler and works with both new and old gas boilers. Don’t get caught out during winter, be prepared!

Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation.

Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorization before proceeding.
Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

How do refunds work?
You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.
What if I want to cancel the appointment?
We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.
(1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.
Do I need to provide parking?
As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
