It’s a great thing your gas boiler. There is sits, hidden away in the cupboard, calmly doing what it’s told to do by the timer or even your smart phone application. But, have you ever wondered how it works and what it does? Getting the thing put in correctly is vitally important and Cheltenham Boiler installation company http://www.combi-man.com/ could be your best bet. Better to understand what the boiler does first though, that way you won’t look like a total idiot when they come around to fix it (might be an idea to not ask too many questions and leave them to it!)
The basic idea behind a gas boiler is that it should heat up the water for your radiators. So far, so easy to understand. The way that the water is heated is by burning natural gas. This is big improvement on the situation from the past when we used coal and wood. These generated a lot of smoke and where environmentally questionable. Burning natural gas is not the best solution as it is a limited fossil fuel as well but at least it doesn’t make stinky smoke. When the water is heated it needs somewhere to sit radiating out the heat it gives off. You might have guessed from that clue in the sentence that the place this water goes to is the radiators. These sit on the side of walls, or even up them if you have the special arty types and get warm to the touch from the hot water inside. This warmth spreads throughout the room or radiates to use the proper terms.
So, we know that the boiler heats the water using natural gas and we know that the water goes to the radiators but how does it get there? The hot water, once it reaches the set temperature in the tank, starts to flow through pipes to the radiators. It does this by using one of the most important elements of the system, the water pump. Without this the water is going nowhere and you’ll find that the only way you can keep is warm is if you and the family all sit around the water tank which is not much of a solution as it’s hard to get the Television installed on the landing.
Right, so now you’ve got an idea of what works you can give them a call and get one fitted if you haven’t already.
