    Not another boiler kettling question

    Hi all Apologies for not getting back sooner. I put the house through that online calculator and it gave me 12kw. The total length of radiators is 16 metres. I have my doubts about whether some of these rads are big enough. Our daughter's bedroom is 10'x12', north facing with a large...

    Central heating "kettling"

    Hi all A few months ago I flushed the system (I forget which product) then added an inhibitor, but have found that it is still "kettling". The boiler will come on then after a minute the pipework starts making sounds like a kettle coming to the boil. A minute later the boiler shuts off (I...
