Central Heating Leaks


Central Heating Leaks UK

 We have engineers all over the country enabling us to provide a fast response to central heating leaks this winter.


Don't be without heat or hot water this Winter
call Leak Detection Specialists today.

Central Heating Leaks in a residential or commercial property can be frustrating to locate because in most instances, the central heating or under floor heating pipework from the boiler will be hidden under floorboards, inside boxing’s or buried in a concrete floor.

Central heating leaks, under floor heating leak, solar power system leaks and other water leaks can all be detected by our engineers who carry state of the art equipment utilising thermography, tracer gas, dye testing, acoustics and other leak detection methods.  Here at  Leak Detection Specialists we pride ourselves in being the UK’s leading leak detection company for central heating leaks.

The engineers at Leak Detection Specialists will find central heating leaks with minimum fuss , saving on expense and water damage to your home, weather your system is old or new, tanks in the loft or new condensing combi’s and megaflows, vented or unvented systems.

We specialise in all heating systems oil, gas, LPG and renewable energies as our engineers are trained in all heating and pipe work systems.

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.

It's important to service your boiler every year as some central heating leaks are caused by faulty parts on the boiler.

So if you are experiencing heating problems such as the boiler loosing pressure contact us at Leak Detection Specialists to find central heating leaks and give you peace of mind.

Non Destructive Leak Detection

LDS Leak Detection Specialists Ltd offer a leak detection service providing a non destructive solution to finding leaks in any pipe work in both domestic and commercial properties.

Tracer Gas Leak Detection
LDS engineers use tracer gas to accurately find and locate water leaks to 1 square meter. The tracer gas used to find water leaks is a safe mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen. The tracer gas containing hydrogen, which is the lightest and smallest molecule in the atmosphere, will exit at the leak point and make its way to the surface where it is detected using gas sensitive detection probes.
Hydrogen, at 5% in a balance of nitrogen has the smallest and lightest molecules so permeates all surfaces including concrete, tarmac, block paving and grass, rising quickly to the surface.
  • A non-invasive leak detection technology
  • Tracer Gas permeates all surfaces
  • Accurately locates leaks quickly
  • Non destructive leak detection technology
Thermography Leak Detection
Using modern Thermal Imaging technology a leak can be located on a burst pipe behind obstacles with minimum disruption and no damage to your property.
Thermal imaging cameras record light as heat and can show this in a picture. The Infrared energy (thermal) is a light we can’t see but we can sense as heat. Thermal imaging cameras identify very small differences in temperature on the surface of different materials, highlighting the warmer and the colder surface areas providing evidence of where the leak is originating.
Our engineers have many years of experience in detecting leaks and use their knowledge to analyse thermal imaging results against their other findings.
Thermal imaging cameras can look at large areas quickly compared to other types of leak detection methods and can see major losses of heat or potential damp problems on the exterior of your property.
  • Non destructive leak detection
  • Detects moisture in ceilings, flat roofs, behind walls and under floors.
  • Reduces your energy consumption and saves on your heating bills
  • Records exterior property heat loss and damp detection
Acoustic Leak Detection
Pressurised water pipes with leaks produce noise. Using electroacoustic ground microphones, or listening sticks, LDS  engineers can often hear this noise and identify where the water leak is. This leak detection technique works well both indoors and outdoors.
LDS engineers use Sewerin's advanced digital and electroacoustic technology to successfully locate water leaks. Utilising highly sensitive electric microphones and digital instrumentation leak noises can be amplified, filtered and processed to assist in identifying a leak’s location.
  • Non Destructive Solution
  • Minimises downtime to your business
  • No need to turn off the water or drain the system.
Correlation Leak Detection
LDS engineers use Correlation Leak Detection as a method of finding and pinpointing leaks in water pipes. A leak in a pipe under pressure creates noises that travels through the pipe. Correlators are a very accurate sound-testing device that are used to identify the acoustic frequency caused when a pipe is leaking.
The correlator uses two identical sensors located along the pipe to calculate the leak location by logging the signal delay, sensor distance and sound velocity. If they can both “hear” the water leak, the correlator, (combined with other data entered by our LDS engineer) calculates the position of the water leak. Correlation leak detection is best suited to larger pipe networks such as network distribution pipes
  • Non Destructive Solution
  • Minimises business downtime.
  • No need to turn off the water supply
  • No need to drain the water system down.
LDS Leak detection Specialists Ltd utilise specialist equipment coupled with our engineers technical expertise to locate hidden leaks quickly and accurately, saving both time and money. We have engineers all over the UK enabling us to provide a fast response and offer International Leak Detection Services.
