When it comes to heating systems, there are many elements that are needed to ensure the smooth function of appliances. Boilers are an essential part of a household as they control the heating within a property, and there is one feature that is incredibly important. The boiler flue is a vital component of the appliance, but you may not have realised as it’s a single pipe that runs from the boiler to the outside of your home.
Even though it’s just a single pipe, there are a list of regulations that need to be met when it’s fitted in your property. Thankfully for you, we at No1 PHD have a group of Guildford boiler flue experts that can install the pipe correctly and safely. Not only that, but our professionals are on hand to repair your boiler flue or replace it if necessary. For more information about what we can do for you, give us a call on 01425 208031.
To put it simply, a boiler flue is a pipe that sends waste gases and condensation from your heating system to the outside of your home. As these gases are harmful, a boiler flue is essential as it directs them away from your property, keeping you safe. All boilers, aside from back boilers, have flues installed otherwise it would breach Gas Safe regulations.
Here at No1 PHD, we cover the entire spectrum of heating services, including the installation and replacement of boiler flues. In fact, we can take care of all matters relating to your system, including boiler installation and boiler replacement. However, when you are having a new boiler fitted in your home, we will need certain information about the flue.
These ducts or pipes come in a variety of different types, shapes and sizes. So, when speaking to one of our heating engineers at No1 PHD, we will need to know the exit point of your current boiler flue. On top of that, we will need you to inform us of the shape of your flue. The different types are as follows:
Most exit points will be on the wall that is closest to your boiler and they should be easily located. With regards to the installation of a boiler flue, you can trust in our professionals at No1 PHD as we adhere to all of the regulations, ensuring that your system is fitted safely. Due to the harm that the gasses can cause to people and properties, strict regulations are required.
If you feel that your current boiler flue is not in the best condition, then get in touch with our engineers as soon as possible. We are certified and qualified Guildford boiler flue experts, which means that we have the authority to replace your pipe with a new one.

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.
