Is boiler repair the right move?
The reason boiler emergencies are so stressful is because they come without warning. This then leaves you without heating or hot water and no idea when it will come back. If you are looking for someone to carry out a boiler repair, rely on Warm.
We find high quality people in your area who can carry out the work you need at any time. You may also be interested in arranging your annual service with us. By caring for your boiler, this will reduce the likelihood of more issues developing so that you can depend on your system.
What Could Have Caused This?
Without taking a look, it is incredibly difficult to determine the cause of an issue. The problem may help to indicate what is behind it, but ultimately it could be anything. This may include a broken critical component, a dangerous issue or something very minor which has a simple fix.
Some common issues include:
- You have no hot water or heat
- The boiler is switching off by itself
- You hear odd noises like banging, gurgling or whistling
- The pilot light has gone out or changed colour
- There is a problem with the thermostat
- You have lost pressure
- There is a leak
- The condensate pipe has frozen
- Kettling (a rumbling noise like a kettle boiling)
Informing the engineer of the problem will help them find the solution faster. Depending on the cause, the price and solution will change. It may be better for you to get a new boiler rather than a repair. With a modern model you will have better control and energy efficiency. It may also be more cost effective if your current appliance is old and will continue to require more repairs in the future.
The engineer will be able to advise you on the best course of action to take. This includes helping you pick a new boiler that will suit your needs. You can then have a reliable and energy efficient system once again.
Is It The Boiler?
If your radiators are not heating up or are only doing it at one end, then it may not be a boiler repair that you need. The more likely scenario is that gas or sludge has built up within your heating system. This prevents heat getting where you need it.
When you bleed your radiators, you can release anything that has collected and is stopping them from heating up. So, you should try this to see if you can restore them. It is not a complicated task, however if you are unsure, you may want to look for someone to help you with it.
Sometimes only some of your radiators will heat up because they have become unbalanced. Fixing this can be complicated and tedious. Therefore, if you think that this is the issue, then you may want to call in a professional. They will have experience and be able to get it right.
There could be many other issues in regards to your heating like a problem with the thermostat or pipe work, but we can help. An engineer will inspect your boiler and central heating to determine the root of the issue. They will then find a way to fix this, even in an emergency. You need to think both short and long term though, as you don’t want to pay for a boiler repair if you are going to need it again next month. So, listen to what the engineer has to say as they have specialist knowledge in this area.
