What are Worcester Bosch system boilers?

Worcester Bosch system boilers are a kind of halfway house between combination boilers, and regular boilers. They use a hot water storage cylinder, but all of the major heating and hot water components are built into the boiler itself. This means that a system boiler is far easier, and quicker to install than a more complicated regular boiler. And there is no need for a large tank in the loft. However, it’s not quite as easy, or small as a combination boiler. So why would you choose one?

What are the benefits of Worcester Bosch system boilers?

There are many benefits of Worcester Bosch system boilers, for specific households, with a particular set of requirements. The benefits include:

  • Constant hot water for multiple taps at the same time- in a home with multiple bathrooms, this can be extremely beneficial. There will be no need to queue for a shower in the morning!
  • No loft tank- this means that your boiler doesn’t take up as much space, and there is less pipework necessary. You also won’t need to worry about frost or leaks.
  • efficient and economical to run- so you could cut down on your monthly bills

Is your Worcester Bosch boiler pressure high?

The boiler is an essential part of daily life for any homeowner. From baths and showers, to washing dishes, and heating your home, the chances are, you rely on your boiler. So when a boiler breakdown occurs, or it no longer works as it should, this can be a problem. Some of the most common boiler problems relate to boiler pressure, and this can be either too high, or too low. High boiler pressure is likely to cause more damage than low pressure, so what does this damage involve? And what are the signs that your Worcester Bosch boiler pressure is high? Well, here at Mark Vernon Heating and Plumbing, we are leading Worcester Bosch boiler professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to high boiler pressure.

What is high boiler pressure?

So, first of all, what is high boiler pressure? Well, this is where the pressure in the boiler rises above 1.5, which is the perfect setting, and reaches 2.5 or even 3. This can happen when the boiler is overfilled, the pressure release devices in the boiler are failing, or the filling loop is letting in too much water. So what are the signs that you need to lower the boiler pressure?

What are the common signs that your Worcester Bosch boiler pressure is high?

Signs that your boiler pressure is high include:

  • A water leak- if you can see water leaking or dripping from the pressure relief valve, usually located on outside wall where the unit has been installed, there’s a good chance your boiler pressure is too high.  This can cause a range of problems including water ingress and corrosion to your boiler’s pipework.
  • A system failure- if your boiler pressure is too high, there is a good chance that your boiler will not turn on, or will fail to heat your home, or provide hot water. This is usually caused by a damaged valve, or an internal leak due to high pressure.

So,why is a summer service good for your Worcester Bosch Boiler?

Now that the weather has finally improved, here are our top reasons to service your Worcester Bosch Boiler in the summer:

  1. Less active boiler- during the summer, it’s likely that you wont be using your boiler as frequently, with the central heating switched off altogether.

Or the lack of use could hide the potential issues that you might be facing in the months to come. Servicing your boiler in the summer can help to identify any potential problems, and can ensure that your boiler is still functioning effectively and efficiently.
  2. Flexible appointment times- because winter is such a busy period for heating and gas engineers, it can be difficult to get an appointment at a time to suit you. But in the summer, there is a lot less competition. So you can arrange for your boiler to be services at a time and date that best suits your schedule.,
  3. Problems or issues- if any problems or issues are identified when servicing your boiler, it will be much less inconvenient to have no heating during these warmer months, than it would in the autumn or the winter. This means that boiler servicing in the summer can not only help prevent future problems, but can help you resolve any issues over a longer period of time. This might also be financially beneficial too.
