No Heating....
« on: November 14, 2017, 04:05:51 pm »
That was us on sunday/Monday...hot water was fine..but no heat coming on...we tried it all...the valves...buttons...switches. read the maual...went on line..but to no avail.. nothing...log burner not on as Brads decorating the back room so would be a bit hot for him....well we were cold but when I took madame Phoebe for a walk on Monday afternoon...spoke to a chap doing his house up who I often see on our walk...he gave me his mate the plumbers number and iphoned him...to cut a long story short...you will all laugh...the batteries had gone in the thermostat...what dopes...we didn't even notice...LOL...I was on the verge of calling someone out..but I knew it was something silly coz we still had hot water...he talked me through it...so by the time brad and the boys got back it was lovely and warm!!! I was so grateful to him...just that bit of advice saved us a packet ..the boiler is only 2 and a half years old....I am going to book it in for an annual service now....LOL ;D :P

With the weather turning colder you do need your heating!

Mum and Dad told me their boiler had stopped working and showing a strange error message on the display - well fortunately my brother was visiting and when he opened it up he found all the wires had been chewed! - was their bird who they let out during the day he had managed to get into the utility room and into the back of the boiler and started stripping all the wires. They found bits in the bottom of his cage - he was so lucky he didnt electrocute himself :-\ :-\

gosh that could have been an expensive escapade... I was going to say the bird may have been rby the heat... but as he chewed the wires and stopped the boiler working it couldn't have been that then!

Well Alison we have finally had our central heating put in and it feels like St Lucia on a good day.
Gone are the calor gas fires which are rubbish for your health and thank goodness this will be a winter I do not have to put layers on and that is inside the home ;D
