Signs Your Boiler Could Be Due a Repair

Knowing when your boiler needs a repair is vital, as it can save you the stress and money of having to deal with a boiler breakdown. As well as this, it is key to keeping you and your family safe, as a broken boiler can cause all sorts of problems. If you notice any of the below issues in your home, feel free to get in touch with our team today...


1. You have no heat

If you are getting no hot water from your system, it is clear there is something not quite right. This can be caused by a range of different issues, so it is better to just call out a gas engineer to take a look for you. We aim to have the issue fixed within the same call-out!

2. Leaks coming from your system

If you have noticed a leak, this can cause water damage to your home, as well as causing more issues with your boiler. When you first notice a leak, locate it and try your best to prevent the water from dripping, by using a towel or bucket. Next, call a gas engineer to take a look at what is going on.

If there are strange noises coming from your boiler, such as kettling, banging, gurgling or vibrating, then you need to get it checked out. Different sounds are caused by different problems, so there is no one way to diagnose what is going on- instead, leave it to the professionals.

5. Radiators not heating up

If your radiators aren't heating up, you can try and correct this by bleeding them. This is a simple process that is done in minutes and often is enough to fix common radiator problems. If this doesn't work, a gas engineer may suggest getting a powerflush, to cleanse your system,
