What are the most common Boiler Repairs?

As with anything, there is always the opportunity and chance that things will break and need to be repaired. Boilers are very technical pieces of equipment and are usually active at least once every day throughout a year. With this amount of work being produced it is important to keep an eye out for any problems that may need to be repaired. Some of the most common boiler problems that we have come across are outlined below.

  • One of the main and often annoying faults is when your boiler produces no heat or hot water – This can be caused through a broken diaphragm or airlock
  • Thermostats can often cause issues with boilers which may warrant a repair. A loss in accuracy or lack of the heating turning on and off when instructed and scheduled too can show signs of a problem. First, you should try to increase this at small levels and if the problem persists then it may need to be serviced by a gas safe engineer.
  • Radiators not heating up – Although this can be extremely frustrating, it is usually caused by a build-up of sludge or air in the system – A common way to fix this is by bleeding the radiator. You can check out this guide on how to bleed your radiator – If this fails to fix the problem then it may be something that an expert will need to look at.
  • The boiler is switching off – Occasionally a boiler will switch itself off – this is usually due to low water pressure within the system, problems with the thermostat or a closed valve within the boiler itself. With this, it is usually something that a gas registered engineer would need to fix as it requires someone with experience.

When You Should Replace Your Old Boiler 

Whether your boiler is ten plus years old or only been around for a couple of years its working life may be coming to an end without you even expecting it to. Small issues may just be the first indication that your boiler is on its way to breaking down. Anything from the boiler switching itself off to low boiler pressure are key signs that it may be time to replace your boiler. It’s very important that you notice these signs early and act fast to ensure your not left without heating when you need it most. If you notice any small signs of wear and tear we highly recommend that you have one of our heating engineers out to help find you a solution for you before it’s too late.
