Recently, the central heating in our student accomodation stopped
working. The central heating and hot water are supplied by a single
combi-boiler which passes the hot water directly into the CH and indirrectly
heats the hot water in the tank (i think - its got the separate water in/out
at the top/bottom, and heating in/out on the side).
Whilst the timer and the boiler work fine to produce hot water, no heat
comes from the radiators. Do you think it is a problem with the electronic
valve? (there are two separate ones, one for the hot water that works (i can
feel heat in its pipes on either side that goes into the tank, and one for
the CH which i do not think works as the pipe is always cold around this
If it is a problem with that valve can i set it to manual override for now
until the landlord gets it fixed as it is absolutely freezing here?!
