I'm not an expert or specialist but your problem sounds like a faulty thermostat to me. I guess that it only responds when the demand is high enough.

All I know is that it tends to be cheaper in the summer than winter. Some of the gas safe engineers on here do special deals in summer for a service.

There is a dedicated section, and your
post may get moved.

where a condensing boiler flue exits through the roof are there any restrictions on how close the flue terminal can be to things such as the boundary, other chimneys, vertical walls?

I'm just wondering where I could site a replacement boiler if I do some alterations later this year.

Thanks

Just wanted to recommend Jon at JB Heating (forum name: JBradleybz) to anyone who may need boiler service or repair (etc). He has done mine recently and fixed the problem of water leak inside my boiler. Ace job. Reasonable price, honest and efficient. Thanks, Jon.

Is there anyone in South Sheffield who does boiler / central heating cover? I have used British Gas before but they tried to con me, so won't have anything to do with them. I have also used Failsafe but now they won't cover the Ideal boiler. Cheers

Afternoon all,

Just had Vaillant out to diagnose and replace a blocked heat exchange plate on my Vaillant Ecotec 831 boiler. They said it should be ok, but recommended I get a system flush (not included in protection plan).

Can anyone recommend someone?

Thanks,

Rich

Recently had a boiler service and complex heating controls replaced with new hive system by Jon Bradley (JBradleybz) and have to say the service, price and efficiency of the job was fantastic. He comes highly recommended.

I paid £55 for a simple service, I have seen gas engineers advertising £60/£70; but I did see a van parked up on a main road in Leeds, advertising a service for £45

Is Jon (JBradleybz) at JB Heating services still on the go? He's not posted for about a year and the website link on his old posts go nowhere

I was looking for a quote for a combi replacement for a valliant, seeing as he did a good job on my external expansion vessel about 5 years ago.

They'll be in the M.I. of the boiler you're having fitted/moved

This started around my old boiler breakdown but can't remember before or after.

The noise seems doesn't connect to any use of water, like flushing toilet, using cold/hot water, or central heating is on/off. The noise appears at random times day and night even when water or central heating both not in use.

We’ve bleed all the radiators, switch the main water supply to lower lever. No change.

Anybody can explain this? I can't call a plumber in standing for hours to waiting for the noise coming up.

If lucky enough, it will settle down after sometime?

Or, any plumber here can fix it please send me a message with your plan and quote, please.

Probably water hammer!

When it next occurs turn off the main stop tap completely, if this stops the noise then that's the problem!
One of the plumbers on here will sort you out!

@zaci
You are right. Turning off the main stop tap stopped the noise.
Also,I seem lucky enough that the noise has getting weaker and not as often as before.
A PRV installation maybe need if the noise getting louder again.
