If you read the manufacturers installation instructions for any boiler, you’ll read that it’s a requirement for the system to be thoroughly cleaned/flushed prior to the new boiler being installed. This is part of the process of qualifying for your warranty. The other necessary part is having the benchmark commissioning checklist completed at the back […]
Ok, So I’ve found out I’m REALLY bad at updating my website with new posts! I’m not one for New Years resolutions as let’s face it, we hardly ever stick to them. BUT! I will make myself a promise to post and update my website with a bit more regularity. “Why will I care?” I […]

Thanks to the lovely firm I work for who put me on the course to become Gas Safe, I’m just a few jobs shy of completing – hurrah!! I’ve passed all of my theory and practical exams and am now just completing my portfolio. There is so much to learn and remember but an absolutely […]
