Gas Boiler in Buckinghamshire

Having a gas boiler or any heating source in one’s home is taken for granted by many people. But it was not too long ago that this method of heating did not exist and people had to resort to much more arduous and time-consuming measures to heat their homes. Today, at the flick of a switch we have the ability to heat up not only one room but an entire house within a relatively short period of time. And if you live or have ever lived in harsh winter conditions, you know how truly valuable this is.

Gas boilers in Buckinghamshire have come a long way since the first ones were constructed, as technology has enabled great leaps in both efficiency and lifespans of such boilers. That being said, the system through which the water is heated and travels throughout the house has not changed. Now we will break down the process of how a gas boiler works so you can have a better idea of what is happening behind those walls of yours and what is keeping you and your family warm on those cold winter nights.

  • The Boiler: The boiler itself is where the water is heated by the use of natural gas to around 60°C (140°F) as this is the optimal temperature for the water to effectively heat the house. Once the water has been heated, it is ready to be distributed to the rest of the house.
  • The Pump: In much the same way that the heart pumps blood throughout our bodies and keeps us warm, an electric pump is used to distribute the heated water throughout the byzantine conduit of pipes and radiators that will house the water and give off heat.
  • The Pipes/Radiators: Referring again to the human body, the pipes through which the hot water is transported act much like the veins and arteries of the body. These pipes carry the water to all rooms of the house, ensuring a balanced and equal temperature in each room that your family can enjoy. The hot water will collect in radiators where the water is concentrated and gives off more heat and after giving off most of its heat the water will eventually return to the boiler where the process will start over again.
  • The Thermostat: In the same way our brains will communicate to our bodies that we are either too hot or too cold, the thermostat will ensure that each room of the house remains at a comfortable temperature consistently. Once the temperature drops too low it will tell the gas boiler to kick on again, and vice versa.

While having an idea of how this closed boiler system works in your home can make you more aware of possible problems, it is absolutely imperative that you always consult with a certified professional for any gas boiler maintenance you are unsure of, or maintenance of our oil boilers in Buckinghamshire.
