Are You Suffering From A Frozen Boiler Condensation Pipe?
With freezing temperatures now increasing in the UK, it’s becoming vital that you protect your gas boiler from a freezing condensation pipe!
Suffering from the crises of having a frozen boiler condensation pipe means leaving your home in the cold with no hot water or central heating and costly boiler repair call out charges - not a nice thought to entertain.
AHP Boiler Services, based in Watford, Hertfordshire, have a solution: there's a few products now available on the market that you can have fitted to almost any condensate pipe. They work by keeping the condensate pipe from freezing up.
Some blow warm air down the pipe work while others have a heating element to keep the pipe work warm and can work with temperatures as low as -20C. Most of these devices activate automatically when temperatures drop below 5C, so you won’t have to worry about freezing condensation pipes again.
Our gas-safe registered engineers are experienced in fitting these devises, often taking as little as 1.5 hours to install, with no major plumbing installation work required.
Just a few of the products we recommend are as follows.
- Worcester Bosh CondenseSure
- Drayton Condensate FreeFlo
- Teddington FrostSentry
