The cold snap is coming, What do you do if your condensate pipe freezes?

So far this winter we seem to have avoided the cold weather. But it seems that eventually, the cold snap might be on its way. While it may be cold outside we can stay indoors with the heating on to keep us warm.

While we are experiencing freezing conditions, you find that your central heating isn’t working, firstly, check the condensate pipe to your boiler (If you have a condensing boiler of course) because it may be frozen. In many cases this causes the boiler not to work.

Follow the helpful advice from Vaillant below:
