Dear Neighbour... Happy New Year! Welcome to the February edition of your Abbey-Link. So how are the New Years Resolutions going? Have any of you stuck with them into February I wonder? Dry January was a bit of a non starter in this house…. but I have actually joined a gym this year and so far I’m still going - ok, It’s only been about 3 weeks now, but I am hoping that I can keep this up, at least for a few months! So I wonder what this year will bring for you? Perhaps you may be on the move this year….. Michael Tuck, on the front cover and The Property Centre on the back cover are both locally based estate agents, give them a call to help sell your home. If you are looking to have your house cleaned, Time 4 You on page 30 and Helping you Services on page 16 can both to help get your home ready. If you are thinking of sprucing up your home this New Year, perhaps investing in new doors, windows or a conservatory then C&L Windows & Conservatories on page 19 can help give your home a make over, or if it’s more of an internal make over then Interior Needs on page 18, can help with all aspects of interior design, pop along to Eastern Avenue and take a look.

Dave’s top tips Frozen Condensate Pipe Over the last few cold months I have had a number of calls from people who have had problems with their boiler breaking down. The culprit boilers tend to be the modern and now common condensing combination type boiler. This is the type that heats water on demand with no immersion tank or loft header tank. The problem has been due to the extreme cold weather we have had over the last few years causing the condensate pipe to freeze and causing the boiler to shut down. This affects both hot water and heating. The cure should it happen is usually to thaw the pipe with warm water untill the condensate within the pipe runs freely, then a quick press of the reset button upon restarting the boiler and all should be well. However prevention is better than cure, So wherever possible exposed condensate pipe should be treated in the same manner as exposed water pipe and be properly lagged to prevent the ice forming within the pipe. An even better solution is to relocate the pipework so as it runs inside the building and flows into an internal trap such as you would find under the sink. This then mixes the hot waste water from the sink with the cold condensate and is in much less danger of freezing. Things to bear in mind are to ensure the new pipework runs downhill with no air traps as this can in itself cause a boiler to shut down. Also the water should be expelled into a sewerage drain rather than a fresh rainwater drain. A little bit of thought now could save many a cold night with no heating and a lot less aggravation in the future. Regards Dave Stevens. If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself.
