Condemned boilers in Croydon

Condemned boiler in Croydon, owner left in cold after service; it could be the headline about central heating in a consumer magazine. To most people it sounds like they automatically need to fork out for a new boiler. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

How to avoid the most common cons and rip offs

A condemned boiler may not be as bad as it sounds

Condemning sounds ominous, but really only means one thing: the installation did not pass the test. There are lots of unscrupulous people in South West London there that try to sell home-owners things they don't need. I believe doing a good job and delivering something that people want and need, is a more sustainable business than ripping people off.

That is why I specialise in repairing central heating where possible. By and large, the big label on the appliance and the scary paperwork are a typical case of: the bark is worse than the bite. There is usually only one form an engineer uses, so you get more or less the same warning for "the boiler service is past due" as that you get when the house is about to explode. The main difference in the paperwork is the ticking of different boxes.

A condemned boiler may just need more ventilation

Lots of older boilers in South West London have what is known as an open flue, and they need ventilation to work properly. The combination of tighter legislation and the way these old things work, makes them more prone to not passing the inspection. In the vast majority of cases, a proper service and some minor adjustments have them going again. They might be a bit heavier on the gas bill than a new boiler, but it will take a long time before you earn back the money you pay for a replacement.
A lot of people with a condemned boiler in Croydon, quite like what they have and would much prefer to keep it if they can. They may not be terribly efficient. They are not particularly pleasing to the eye. They are often quite big and lumpy, not to mention very heavy. And because they are so simple, you could still get many years out of a lot of them.

Because I specialise in repairing central heating systems, I can re-instate a condemned boiler in Croydon at least in 9 out of 10 cases.

Condemned boilers can often be repaired

How is it possible that one central heating engineer says you need a new boiler, and I say I can solve the problem so that you can keep what you already have. Can we both be right? The answer is: yes. The other chap was right when he labeled your installation, and turned it off. It is quite possible that he implied that it was the end of the ride, but did not literally say you must have a new one. "I think it is time for a new one" may sound that way, but it does not actually mean that there is no other option. The other plumber might really think it is not worth repairing because it is old. It is possible that his main work is servicing or installing, and he does not know that much about fault finding and repairing. Many things are possible.
So how do you know that all this is true?
After finishing the remedial work, I follow a rigorous testing procedure. As a central heating engineer who is a member of the Gas Safe Register organisation, I can issue you an official safety certificate.

I will happily supply you with all the contact details of organisations appointed by the Government to ensure the safety of gas installations.

Any gas user in England can request an inspector if they have safety concerns. It doesn't cost anything, and even the phone call is free to an 0800 number.

I am so confident about all this, because you really are not the first home owner with a condemned boiler in Croydon.
Sometimes it is fairly easy to make them safe again, and sometimes it is hard work. And, true enough, there are cases where it really is not worth the outlay. But they are rare.

So remember, if you don't want to spend hundreds, or even thousands for something you don't need,
