Never replace a 3 amp fuse for a larger size

1111

Having just completed and commissioned another new Vaillant boiler installation, I was setting off on my way home when I received the call to go to a regular client who had no hot water and a smell of burning. When I arrived the symptoms were simply that the house consumer unit (fuse board) kept tripping [...]

Sticky Situation

Untitled-2

We first met this boiler when it was relatively new - some 15 years ago approximately. That particular client sold the property and later moved to another part of Southampton (where we installed a whole new system for them in their new home). The majority of our work is word-of-mouth and so the new owner of this boiler kept [...]

The secret lives of Pipes!

Untitled-1

I keep meaning to share these pictures of various pipes (which sounds very boring to most I’m sure!) but may be interesting for you to see. These instances are common place within most peoples properties, usually unbeknown to the them. The first image shows a system that clearly hasn’t been drained for many years. This particular pipe within the [...]

Water leak devastation averted!

Loft tank

Kevin and I recently installed a new gas boiler system for a client that we had been going to for some years. It was a pleasure to meet the client’s parents on that particular job, who kindly travelled each day to meet us and house sit whilst our work was being completed. In conversation with them we [...]

New Kitchen, New Gas Hob

gas engineer boiler southampton service

Recently I completed an enjoyable new Gas Hob installation – this made a pleasant change as I had to cut the new worktop to suit the new hob also. On this particular installation, an electric hob was installed originally, so the gas pipe was run behind the new kitchen units and connected to the new hob. The [...]

One portion of Fried Mice

Untitled-1

Having had a relatively straight forward morning, I later had a booking from a distressed/very cold new client whom had no heating or hot water. The symptoms were basic – simply no operational boiler. Due to experience, the first port of call was to check that this particular boiler hadn’t tripped its ‘over heat thermostat’ – which [...]

Concealed Pipework Radiator Reposition

Recently I undertook a complex Radiator reposition for a canine friend who wanted better access to the Garden. The requirement was to remove a radiator that had it’s pipework ran in the wall – as this wall was going to be knocked through to fit new patio doors. The radiator was the room’s main source [...]

Traditional Boiler Replacement

Earlier this year I was called to a regular client for an annual service of a Glow-Worm (make) Fuelsaver (model) boiler. The boiler was circa 25 years old and so too was the system/airing cupboard. Unfortunately upon servicing, a major safety issue was quickly picked up. The flue (which passes the products of combustion safely [...]

Sludge build-up

Untitled-2

Another interesting job to start the year. I was called to a client on the Bitterne/Sholing border in Southampton who had no central heating or hot water. The boiler was firing but only for short amounts of time – maybe 1 or 2 minutes. The boiler was operating fine, the timer and room thermostat were [...]

fddd

Very happy new year to all of our clients. My very first job of the 2013 year was to install a replacement combination boiler in the Sholing area of Southampton. In short, the client inherited the Chaffateux et Maury (boiler brand) Britony Combi 80 SE (boiler model). For a long time the boiler worked very [...]
