Typical pellet boiler set up

Specialist equipment must be used when servicing these appliances. For example a flue gas analyser used to measure the C0 content of gas may be able to read up to 1000ppm but measurement of up to 100,000ppm may have to be measured with solid fuel biomass boilers making most flue gas analysers unsuitable. To undertake Biomass servicing and not perform flue gas analysis on completion is irresponsible and unprofessional. Flue gas analysis is the only method to ascertain correct function in accordance with manufacturers criteria to establish efficiency and fault find.

Hodgsons Chimney Sweeps use the latest Wohler RP 72 Soot Test Pump for testing through the burn phase.

Hodgsons Chimney Sweeps use the latest Wohler Flue Gas Analysers as part of our servicing protocol.
