When looking at a boiler flue it can be easy to dismiss it as a simple component that doesn’t need much thought. After all, it’s little more than a pipe. Unfortunately, the reality is a little more complicated than the simple form would have you believe. There are several regulations regarding the placement of boiler flues for one thing. Not to mention the risks of improperly installing a component that, despite that simple appearance, is actually very important to the safe usage of your boiler. That’s why you want experts handling your flue repair and installation needs. Call No1PHD to book an appointment with our Southampton Boiler Flue Experts today on; 08006906777
It can help to think of a boiler flue as a small chimney, as it serves more or less the same purpose. The boiler burns fuel to heat your water or power your central heating, and the flue transports the waste gasses from that process safely out of your home. Depending on the location of your boiler, the flue may exit as a short horizontal stub well above the height of any passing pedestrian heads, but can also be required to follow a path that will take it away from areas it could potentially cause damage, such as near parked cars or other buildings.
The exhaust gasses coming from your boiler can be harmful, both to people and property. In particular, vehicles are susceptible to damage from the output of a boiler flue. And, depending on the distance travelled from the boiler to the end of the flue, the gasses can still be hot enough to injure. The placement of boiler flues is very strictly regulated for this reason, and fitting should not be attempted without full knowledge of those regulations. Fortunately, No1PHD are completely versed in all the relevant regulations for fitting and repairing boiler flues in Southampton.

We would not advise anyone to try and verify a potential fault in a boiler flue, leave this to the boiler experts at No1PHD. The most likely fault you will experience is some kind of leak, and it is unlikely you’ll be able to properly check such a leak without getting close to the flue while the boiler is running. As mentioned above, this is a bad idea. The gasses in the flue—and as a result, the gasses escaping any potential leak—could be hot. Hot enough to injure. If you notice a gaping hole in the outer wall of your flue or a mounting bracket that has come away from the wall, it’s pretty obvious what the problem is. But if you suspect a leak, and in particular if the suspected leak is close to the boiler itself, it’s best to just call No1PHD. Our heating experts can advise you on how to proceed and we’ll have a professional out to repair your boiler flue in Southampton in no time.
Hopefully, we’ve impressed upon you the potential seriousness of a boiler flue fault, as well as the need to have knowledgeable experts handle your boiler flue repairs and installations. To have our knowledgeable experts handle your boiler flue needs, call us today on Southampton; 08006906777.
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.
