Check your boiler pressure

When everything is running smoothly, your boiler pressure will be between 1 and 1.5 bar.

Bleed your radiators

If there are cold spots on your radiators, you may need to bleed them. Cold spots are caused by trapped air and bleeding them is the best way to remove this air. Having healthy radiators prevents your boiler from working harder than it has to in order to heat your home, which can hel0p it to last much longer.
