Graham Collins, Training Support Manager at Baxi, explains the importance of a healthy heating system.
A new boiler is a significant investment for any household and boiler breakdowns are inconvenient and distressing. A clean system reduces the chance of the boiler breaking down, as well as extending its life. Graham Collins, Training Support Manager at Baxi, explains the importance of a healthy heating system.
A few simple steps will help installers meet BS 7593:2019, the British Standard Code of Practice for the commissioning and maintenance of domestic central heating and cooling water systems, which came into effect on 31 May 2019 and is referenced in the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide, which is a supplementary document to Approved Document L of the Building Regulations.
There are also many benefits for the householder of a properly maintained heating system, which the installer can explain while they are carrying out the work. Running a boiler on a clean system if far more energy efficient and heat output of radiators is more effective, so they should see substantial savings on their heating bill. If a boiler breaks down under warranty because of debris and sludge in the system, the boiler warranty may be invalidated. And the more energy efficient the boiler is, the lower its carbon emissions, so the householder will be doing their bit for the environment, too.
To help installers reassure their customers and give them complete peace of mind, the new Baxi 800 range of boilers comes with a compact Adey Magnaclean Micro2 magnetic system filter to protect the heating system and a 10-year parts and labour warranty.
