RADIATORS TOO HOT


Postby bluemoon » Fri Feb 01, 2008 6:50 pm

I SEEM TO BE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY CENTRAL HEATING. ALTHOUGH THE THERMOSTAT ON MY BOILER IS LOW AT 2 AND THE THERMO TO REGULATE THE RADIATORS IS AT 18, AGAIN VERY LOW FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR - THE RADIATORS ARE TOO HOT TO TOUCH WITH THE HAND. I CAN ALSO HEAR WATER IN THE RADIATORS AND A CONSTANT BUZZING NOISE FROM THE AIRING CUPBOARD (THE WATER TANK IS LOCATED HERE) AND NOISES FROM THE LOFT. THE HOUSE IS ONLY 10 YEARS OLD. I RECENTLY HAD A CORGI CENTRAL HEATING INSTALLER IN THAT ADJUSTED THE PIPE WITHIN THE AIRING CUPBOARD. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME GUIDANCE PLEASE.... :roll:

I understand the sound of water and the buzzing noise being a fault with the pump.

Did the engineer explain how the pump would increase the radiator temperature ? if the boiler stat is set to 4 then whether the pump is working or not - when the boiler reaches the temperarture setting of the thermostat it will cut the boiler off.
