Andrew Eastwell talks condensing boilers on BBC Radio 4January 2010


Andrew Eastwell, Chief Executive (September 1998 - April 2014)
Andrew Eastwell, BSRIA Chief Executive, guests on BBC Radio 4 to discuss potential problems with condensing boilers in extreme cold weather.

You and Yours is a radio programme dealing with consumer issues. During the recent cold weather in the UK, listeners contacted them to report failures to condensing boilers caused by condensation water freezing in the drainage pipe. Andrew discusses the merits of condensing boilers and gives practical recommendations to avoid this problem, such as the insulating the condensate pipe and ensuring it has an adequate drop to ensure water flows out.

The BBC iPlayer stores this programme for a limited period. Scroll to 9 minutes into the broadcast for the condensing boilers feature.
