Resources for occupiers

We strive for a problem-free environment, but if you do need help...

 
Every occupier at the Courtyard has Bill Reed's mobile and home telephone numbers in case a problem does arise, but this page has been compiled as a starting point for self help. Please remember that past performance does not necessarily indicate future success, and all approvals will need to be obtained in the normal way. This resource is continuously updated, and any additions or comments are welcomed. Reedspace wants occupiers to share their experiences of local firms, both good and bad, for the benefit of everyone at the Courtyard

Boilers & Plumbing Your boiler is a gas combination boiler that provides hot water for both central heating and sinks / basins. Please remember to have the boiler and gas installation serviced and "safe checked" annually.

There is a water pressure dial displayed inside the boiler which should be kept between 1 and 2. If the pointer falls below 1, it is probable that the boiler will not fire up, so please check the dial at least monthly, and if it falls below 1 use the small black plastic tap underneath the boiler to release more water into the system.

The system will then re-set itself which may take up to 30 minutes. The heating time settings at hand over are as follows, but can easily be changed by referring to the appropriate instructions in the user manual.
