In order for any heating system to function correctly, it is essential that all components, both large and small, are working. One of the more minor features is boiler flues. These pipes are connected to your boiler and pump our exhaust gases from your heating system. The upkeep of this feature is essential to ensuring the continued running of your heating setup as it helps to prevent potential breakdowns from occurring.
Whether your installation a new flue or having your current one repaired, it is vital to consult with heating experts. At No1 PHD, our team in Basingstoke can carry our everything from boiler installations to radiator replacements, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require assistance with your boiler flue.
Boiler flues are arguably the most understated aspect of any heating system, as they carry the necessary burden of transferring harmful chemicals away and fumes from your home. Most heating systems in the UK rely on the use of fossil fuels which give off fumes that are incredibly dangerous for residents to inhale. Flues are connected directly to the boiler and carry these gassy bi-products away from your home.
If your home has a combi, regular, or system boiler, you will already have a flue installed into your home. It is identified as a pipe or duct that sticks out of the side or roof of your property. Observing it will show that it is constantly pouring out gases that would otherwise be harmful to those living in your home. Maintaining it doesn’t require much effort as flues should only require cleaning every now and again.
However, flues aren’t invincible, so it is important to keep an eye on them to make sure that they continue to function. For example, if you notice black stains on or near your boiler, it may mean that there is a leak in your flue. To ensure that your flue has less chance of breaking down, it is vital to invest in a suitable model for your home. The types of flues that are available include:

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
