Frozen Condensate Pipe Manchester
CONDENSING BOILER PROBLEMS. Recent excessively cold winters has brought many problems to modern condensing boilers, one of them being frozen condensate waste pipes. This has caused many boiler breakdowns and much anguish for customers. When a condensate waste pipe becomes frozen this can cause the central heating boiler to shut down completely and will not work again until the problem is rectified often after severe damage has been caused to the boiler and property.
Christie Gas and Heating have Gas Safe engineers in Manchester. We are installers of central heating in Manchester and surrounding areas and have a permanent solution to the problem, after investing in a modern and effective remedy for frozen condensate pipes we offer a service to rectify any freezing that occurs within them. We are now installing heating trace kits to condensate pipes, these kits consist of a cable which can be attached to the length of the condensate waste pipe, they are connected to the central heating boiler via a safety cut out. A small electrical current is passed down the cable causing slight heating along the length of the condensate pipe,
with the correct type of external lagging this can prevent freezing and thus avoid expensive central
heating boiler breakdowns.
We can normally rectify any size or length of condensate pipe. Often this will result in re piping the condensate waste to match the length of the heating trace wire. You can also find information on how to defrost your condensate pipe on many of the manufactures websites.

I originally contacted Christie Gas and heating early last year to carry out an annual service on our old boiler, Having been let down by another company. Richard carried out the work. We were extremely impressed by how professional and tidy he was (Dust sheets in all necessary areas) He has since been back this year as the boiler was becoming very inefficient to run and installed a new Worcester Bosch boiler. Whilst doing the install he also upgraded a few radiators with some changing position. All in all a highly recommended company.

I telephoned Christie Gas to arrange for an annual service on my condensing combi boiler which is over 10 years old. Richard came on the date and time arranged. He carried out all the necessary work, explaining some adjustments that he had made to pressure etc. He checked and bled radiators where necessary and all was very clean and tidy. Richard was very pleasant, professional and very reasonable in his charges. I would certainly recommend him and asked for his business cards.
