Question about Heating & Cooling
The pressure in our boiler is slightly high (should be 1-1.5 and it is around 2-2.5) - it is only 2 years old and we have had someone in to look at it recently as the thermostat was not behaving correctly - so I am confident there is not anything wrong with it - but now that we are starting to use the heat again, the pressure rises up into the 'red' area (3-4) when the heat is turned on. Is this something to be worried about? And is there anything that we can do to release the pressure?
Thanks for any assistance!

You should have a filling loop built in to the boiler or external make shaw this is not letting water in to the system, also being a sealed system hot water will expand. so on your boiler you will have a expansion vessel which has to be filled with air so that the water can expand in to it. undo the valve which will be like a tyre valve off a car and quickly press the pin if u get air spay out with quite alot of pressure u should be ok. if empty you need to top it up to the manufactures instructions normaly about 1 bar. if both the above are ok the expansion vessle is broken

Crack open any joint in the system like a joint to a radiator and let a little water drip out. you should not use when in the red
