Know Your Enemy: The Frozen Condensate Pipe Boilers are the unsung heroes of our homes, faithfully providing hot water and keeping our toes toasty during the winter months. Condensate pipes are integral to this operation, transporting the wastewater that forms during the condensing process. But what happens when the mercury drops? The chilling truth is that these pipes can freeze, often resulting in boiler malfunctions, costly repairs, and some very cold nights. Signs of trouble include a non-functional boiler, gurgling sounds, or even an ominous ‘EA’ error code on your boiler’s digital display. No need to panic, though! Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to bring your boiler back to life:
  • Locate the external pipe connected to your boiler (usually a white plastic pipe leading to an external drain).
  • Safely pour warm (not boiling) water along the pipe.
  • Reset your boiler. If the pipe is defrosted, your boiler should return to normal operation.
However, remember that prevention is better than cure. Westflow Heating Services is here to help you insulate your condensate pipes and prepare for the cold months ahead.
