If you have had a new gas boiler installed in the last 15 years, it will most likely be a high efficiency condensing boiler and will have a condensate pipe.
Find out more about how to find your condensate pipe, and what to do if it freezes during winter.

How do I know if my condensate pipe is frozen?
Before attempting to thaw a frozen condensate pipe, it is important to make sure that is the cause of the problem.
The first warning sign that your condensate pipe has frozen may be an error code on your boiler.
On Vaillant boilers, you will get an F28 or F29 code.
Error codes on other makes of boiler may vary, but a tell-tale sign is a gurgling noise coming from the boiler.
If the boiler was working fine up until a bit of a cold snap, there is a strong chance your issue is a frozen condensate pipe.
We all know the feeling.
We flick the heating on as we walk in the door (or if we are a techy before we leave work using our phone), but it does not seem to get as warm as it used to.
What is going on?
The issue may be in your radiators.

When should you bleed a radiator and what do you need?
One of the first signs that you should bleed your radiators is when you have put your heating on, and your home is still cold or if you hear a bubbling sound when you turn your heating on.
If this happens, feel your radiators – you may notice that the radiators are hot at the bottom, but cold at the top.
To bleed your radiators, you need a radiator key so you can open the valves on your radiators – you will be able to buy one of these from most hardware stores, often for less than £1.
Some valves may only need a flat head screwdriver, so double check the shape of the valve before starting.
You will need a bucket or bowl to collect any water and a cloth can be handy to clean up.
Sometimes the water that comes out of an old radiator can be discoloured, so a cloth will help save any light-coloured carpets!
