DO YOU HAVE A CENTRAL HEATING LEAK?
It’s usually around September, after 4-5 months of non-use, that we start to switch on our central heating again in preparation for Autumn and Winter, only to find it’s not working.
From boiler fails to loss of pressure and leaking pipes, it’s only when it doesn’t switch on that we realise just how much we need and use our central heating systems.
Any many cases an engineer may confirm after inspection that it’s not the boiler at fault, but that there is an issue with the piping system.
Further investigation becomes more difficult, with pipes hidden under floors and through walls. It’s at that point you should consider a central heating leak detection specialist.
“After 4-5 months of non-use, it’s common for Central Heating systems to experience problems.”
HOW DO YOU FIND A WATER LEAK ON YOUR CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM?
Many modern homes have expensively fitted floor coverings which make for difficult inspections under floors, the disruption and cost of going on a ‘search and find’ mission does not appeal.
Thankfully modern technology has got some very clever answers.
At Water Loss Solutions we have invested heavily in some of the best leak detection equipment available to help us find your central heating leak with the minimum of fuss.
We use a combination of the following…
- Tracer Gas
- Acoustic Correlators and microphones
- Borescope cameras
- Infrared cameras
In the hands of our experienced technicians you can be assured we will find your leak. Every year we take dozens and dozens of enquiries asking us to find and fix leaks on central heating systems, we can promise to find your leak but we can’t promise how quickly it will take us, as every job is different.
TRACE & ACCESS INSURANCE POLICIES
Most insurance policies have ‘trace & access’ cover.
This means your insurers should cover any costs incurred in finding your central heating leaks.
Once we have found your leak we will produce a professional report which will more than meet your insurers requirements to allow them to make a decision to pay out.
If you have any problems with this then we are happy to talk to your insurers to help clarify any issues around what we have done or seen.
