Freeze protection on a Rental Boiler

Did you know a boiler can freeze up like a popsicle even while it's running? Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Steven about how to protect a rental boiler from the cold.

Even while that boiler is firing away creating steam, pipes on the outside of it can freeze up when there isn't anything flowing through it. You must protect those pipes with insulation and heat tracing. Watch the video as Steven talks through some of the pipes and areas you need to watch out for when you are using a rental boiler in the winter.
