Reports on the plumbing or central heating system are often requested in conjunction with quantity surveyor reports and in the past there has been overlap between these with no clear instructions as to precisely what is required and why. Sometimes the request is simply for providing a quotation for a necessary repair or upgrade of boiler, cold water storage cistern, hot water cylinder, oil tank or pipe work.

We can calculate boiler output for boiler changes as heat calculations are required to be made to ensure that the new boiler will meet your whole house heating requirements.Your chosen installer may have done this but you should ask for evidence that these calculationshave been undertaken. Too many installers are either guessing or matching the heat output of your old boiler that may be historically either under sized or over sized by the original installer. A boiler too large is more costly to purchase and inefficient and a boiler too small will not deliver theheating requirements of your home.A report on the plumbing system includes a visual inspection of the installation and an operational check on the system. It should be noted that a plumbing and heating report will check that the boiler works but not if it is a solid fuel boiler (which is not fired up), but would not normally include a detailed inspection or any tests on the boiler.Perform an inspection of the problem Identify possible causes of any identified problem Advise on the likely consequences Make proposals on what can be done to solve or alleviate the situation Produce a report to summarise Estimate the likely cost to rectify or investigate further By carrying out checks on your home, Russell Surveying Services will point out any maintenance that may be required.
