During periods of extremely cold weather, the main cause of boiler breakdowns is what's known as a 'frozen condensate'. The condensate pipe normally takes away excess water vapour droplets from the boiler to an external drain. The pipe can freeze if installed incorrectly or if insulation is damaged/removed. The video below shows the required steps to safely defrost a condensate pipe.

Mrs Pooley

My wife dealt with MCS Heating and she has written this review. MCS Heating has exceeded our expectations with regards to service efficiency, professionalism and value for money. I rang the emergency number on a Saturday morning (I have boiler cover with them), an engineer came out after lunch to check our boiler, then on Monday and Tuesday an engineer called Richard came out (all day on both days) to install our new boiler, check all the pipe work, repair leaks and flush the system, etc. This was very thorough and the quality of the work was to very high standards. The customer service is brilliant at this company and all the staff are so friendly and helpful. A huge thank you to Richard, who treated my home with respect and went that extra mile to provide exceptional customer service. Thanks MCS Heating.

Fr. Brown - Church Boiler Room

We were very happy with how the project was managed from start to finish; it involved the installation of five new boilers, associated plumbing and removal of the old ones. We had a detailed description of what was proposed and a breakdown of costs, specifying what sums of money were due and when. We have knew the company from previous works here and have found MCS easy to deal with and trustworthy. All the work has been carried out as proposed and on schedule, we never had to chase them up. In short, we are very happy with the result and quality of work and are happy to recommend this firm.

Dear MCS, I am writing to express my absolute delight at the superb level of care my family received from one of your engineers. He was called out to attend to our boiler on two occasions, the second of which proved to be extremely tricky, time consuming and a frustrating problem.

Just a note to express my thanks to your gas engineer who spent the last two days here fitting a new combi boiler. I was very impressed with his attention to detail in what proved to be a challenging job. He kept me informed about what he was doing throughout the process and cleaned up after the work. I will be very happy to have him here in the future.

Marien T - Boiler installation

I am writing to say how pleased we were with the way your engineer installed the new central heating boiler for us on Monday and Tuesday. It was a pleasure to welcome him into our home. He could not have been more pleasant and helpful and we appreciated all he did very much indeed. If everyone who works for you is like him then it is no wonder that you continue to be a successful business.
