I’ve got a 7 year old house with a sealed system (so I’ve been told) and a 18 month old condenser boiler which I had put in (the old one was burning gas like there was no tomorrow and then broke). The new boiler is in the garage.
Since then I’ve had a number of problems and I don’t know what to do or what to get a professional in to do.
My issues are :
1 – My system does not really get piping hot water into the radiators until the hot tap is run. I don’t remember this happening until I put some insulation around 2 of the pipes coming out of the boiler, but I’m not saying it did not happen before. Would this cause this type of problem?
2 – Once the really hot water starts flowing the tops of the Radiators get nice and hot but the bottoms of them are noticeably cooler. I always believed that they should be a even temperature from top to bottom.
3 – 2 of my Radiators never get above warmish, one down stairs and one in the room above it. They are not the furthest from the boiler but I think they are the last to get any warmth so I assume they are at the end of the system.
Any suggestions would be appreciated and I’d put my DIY skill level as very basic.
