Underfloor Heating Leaks

Image
Leak Detection Specialists are experienced in finding underfloor heating leaks

Leak Detection Specialists engineers use thermal imaging cameras to help find underfloor heating leaks. Thermal imaging cameras identify very small differences in temperature on the surface of different materials, highlighting the warmer and colder surface areas providing evidence of where the leak is originating.

Underfloor heating leaks are highly unlikely but can be found on the manifold. Common underfloor heating problems can be caused by air in the loops, debris in the pipes, incompatible floor finish and incorrect set-up.

Thermal imaging works really well when an underfloor heating system with pipes is set in screed, as there is a direct transfer of heat from the pipes to the floor. Depending on the thickness of the flooring and its coverings there may or may not be any surface temperature changes. Thermal imaging results may also be affected by false hot spots due to missing insulation, pipes pushed c…

Can Leak Detection find a smell?

Image
On occasions Leak Detection Specialists are approached to find where a smell is coming from !

Problem: A sporadic Smell affecting a large corporate building in the North of England.
It was first thought that this smell was a drainage issue that would come and go.
The problem had been on going for 2 years during which time many companies had attended to resolve the issue but the problem persisted.
Leak Detection Specialists were approached by the company with the problem. Arrangements were made for LDS engineers to attend the site out of hours on a weekend to prevent any disruption to the buildings employees.
After various testing to soil stacks and utilities LDS Leak Detection engineers found the leak on a capped off stack in the basement area that was used for the air conditioning and boiler condensing water.
It was found that part of the line was running up hill and could not therefore run to waste. The pipeline was found behind a wall in the building.
The exact smell was found in this lin…

LDS help you sleep at night
The Problem
The client approached LDS Leak Detection Specialists Ltd via the website. He was impressed with the knowledgeable & professional response from the UK technical call handler Mark. The client had been experiencing repeated pressure loss on the boiler. A new boiler had been installed yet still the pressure loss continued.
