As we love our customer, so we let you know some fact about your heating system and the important roles they play, more so to pay more attention to gas appliances safety check and gas appliances servicing
Carbon Monoxide- (Co) is know as the ‘silent Killer’ as it toxic, colourless, tasteless and odourless. It is difficult to detect and even in small quantities can prove fatal within a few minutes.
What makes Co poisoning and extremely dangerous is its insidious onset. It affects mental ability, rendering a person incapacitated without them knowing anything is wrong. Any sudden exertion by the affected person may cause collapse, preventing escape from the contaminated location. The result is often fatal.
|% Volume of Carbon Monoxide(Co) in the air
||tightness across the forehead with prolonged exposure
||flushed skin, headache, breathlessness, and palpitations on exertion within 4-5hours
||severe headache, nauses,weakness of knees, increased respiration and pluse,collapse on exertion
||coma,weakened heart and respiration. Death within a few minutes.
|0.4% volumes of C0 in the air equates to 60% saturation of haemoglobin in the blood by carbon Monoxide! A deadly situation
Because of C0 and lack of Gas appliance servicing, there is a Minimum standards of combustion have been laid by the British standard inststitution.
All ‘approved’ Gas appliances must conform to this specifications: BS5258. standards in Britain are based on the ratio of the amount of carbon monoxide produced to the amount of carbon dioxide produced. The ratio C0: C02 must not exceed 0.02 under laid down conditions. For installed gas appliances operating at the maximum setting the ratio should not exceed 0.004. under standard conditions the C0:C02 ratio must not exceed 0.02:1
If you have a Gas fire, gas stove etc ventilation play a major role in your Gas appliance. There should be a sufficient permanent supply of air available to the gas appliances for proper combustion and correct operation of the flue. An adequate air supply also assists the performance of any gas appliances. British Standard BS 5440-2 specifies the ventilation requirement for majority of Natural gas, domestic, new or replacement gas appliances.
Power flushing is the most efficient and affective method of cleansing a central heating system. The objective is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation. Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they cause.
What are the symptoms indicate that power flush its needed?
- Reduced heating output
- Noisy Boiler and along it pipe work
- Heating Circulation Problems high scales up
- Leaking radiator valves or leaking from pin holing
- Radiators that frequently need venting or bleeding
- Cold spots on your radiators
- Pump Failure repeatedly
- Overall heating system is slow to start up or warm up
