    I have just dismantled my old oil boiler (22 yrs old) and electrics that go along with it. A new one will be installed later in the year, and moved to a different location due to building works. In doing so, there are a couple of components in the electrics that I have no idea what they are...

    Central Heating always on boiler won’t shut down (Ideal Logic 15)

    Hi, last night our central heating system seems to have developed a problem. Our boiler is an Ideal Logic 15. It appears that the thermostat is working fine (?) but somehow the boiler thinks there is a constant demand to supply heating. For example, thermostat currently at 20c and the flame...

    No central heating on BAXI DUO-TEC COMBI 24 HE

    Hello everyone, My home has a BAXI DUO-TEC COMBI 24 HE. The radiators won't heat up even though the boiler is showing a green light saying they are running. The hot water is still working though. I've tried bleeding radiators and then pressurising the boiler after but I still have the same...

    Leak from boiler/CH losing pressure

    Hello, I moved house recently and one issue that I noticed after a week or so was lots of trapped air in the CH. Two or three upstairs radiators had about 1/2 to 1/3 of the top feel cold. The system also had too little pressure to force this air out when bleeding the radiators (the boiler read...

    I have a very old system with a back boiler, and a header tank in the loft. It has a TF1 filter, fitted 5 years ago, but has largely been neglected over the years. In September I tried the heating and it wouldn't come on. Also, the header tank was full of brown sludge, which I cleared out...

    Boiler Not Firing for Heating - Works for Hot Water

    Hi looking for advice in where to start with fixing our boiler. The boiler doesn’t turn on when central heating only is on, but seems to work fine when hot water is on. Three way valve seems to be fine, in that radiators warm up when hot water and central heating are on, and cool when only hot...

    I've had X400 in for 2 weeks now. It seems to be working, and I've run the heating hot at times during cold snaps, including with one radiator at a time. However, at this time of year the heating is off during the day and not that much at night either. I could drain it now, but want to get the...

    Understanding a Honeywell CM907

    I've moved into a new house and I'd like to upgrade to a smart thermostat, such as the Draton Wiser. Self installation seems do-able but I don't understand my current Honeywell thermostat CM907. Most smart thermostat install guides show many wires coming into the backplate of the existing...
