In the balmy weather of the spring and summer it can be difficult to remember just how essential central heating is. Then, autumn arrives, bringing rain, wind and a chilly bite to the air.
It’s often at this time that you’ll flick on the heating switch only to discover half of your radiators aren’t working. Sometimes there’s a problem with the boiler itself, but often the issue is localised to individual radiators themselves. Before you rush out and spend money on a central heating powerflush, it’s important to ask yourself a number of questions.
