Central heating leaks could be the cause of your boiler loosing pressure on a sealed system, this could mean that you may have a hidden leak on your central heating pipework or underfloor heating pipework somewhere in your property.
With advanced modern technology, and state of the art equipment, Leak Detection Specialists engineers can locate your central heating leaks super-fast and accurately.
Central Heating Leaks: In a sealed central heating system, losing pressure on your boiler will be the first tell-tale sign of a possible leak on the central heating system. Constantly topping your system up will be diluting the important corrosion inhibitor in the system and in most modern heating systems can cause severe damage to the boiler itself, including the heat exchanger which can be very costly to replace ! This can eventually lead to failure of the boiler leaving you without heating and/or hot water. On an older system, the central heating filling and expansion tank in the loft (small tank) may be dripping or running 24hrs a day and may go unnoticed for some time until water damage becomes evident in the property, usually spreading throughout a large area making the exact leak location very difficult to identify. In a sealed system, mains water is pressurised usually between 1 and 1.5 Bar in the system, pipework and radiators, an additive is added to reduce corrosion. This is shown on the boiler or the pipework somewhere by means of a pressure gauge.
