Indeed it is! As the seasons change we generally switch to central heating in another month or so. When we do, will our heating system be working up to capacity? When you want to heat your home, you switch on the boiler with an electric switch. Voila, it works each and every time…right?
What is supposed to happen is that a valve will open then gas enters a sealed combustion chamber in the boiler through a myriad of small jets, and an electric ignition system sets them ablaze. The gas jets play onto a heat exchanger connected to a pipe carrying cold water. The average life expectancy of a gas boiler is 10-15 years.
