Boiler leaks biggest causes are often issues with an internal component, such as a pressure valve or pump seal. If the leak stems from your pressure relief valve, your systems pressure has likely become too high. Corrosion can be a factor causing leakage, developed by your pipes' surroundings or perhaps, there could be an issue with your boiler's instalment.
Here at East London Plumbing and Heating, we are available 24 hours to offer our advice, prices on offers and instalments and identify any problem at hand. If you suspect the leak in your boiler is due to a more serious factor, it may be in your best interest to inquire about quality, affordable new boiler instalment.
Low Boiler Pressure
When looking at your boilers built-in pressure gauge, you can identify whether its pressure is too low. Your boiler cannot function if under 1 bar, and you should set it to 1.5 bar if possible. Bled radiators, system leaks, and failed components result from low boiler pressure and vice versa. It's helpful to know and look for any visible signs of leaking before going ahead and not attempt to remove any boiler casings.
Should you discover any leakage, we are Gas Safe and registered to help in these cases. Feel free to book an appointment or contact us for a local boiler repair service, and we are open to offer you a quote.
No Heating or Hot Water
Faulty motorised vaults, airlocks and broken system diaphragms, along with broken thermostats, are all causes of no heating or hot water in your home. To check which of these, we suggest fast checking to see your boiler is below 1; if it is, it may result from the previous problem and thus needs repressuring.
If the problem is infrequent heating or hot water, it may be useful for you to check your thermostat metre, and the manufacturers' guide inside could be your solution. If not, then your next best step is to contact specialised heating system engineers or us. Broken valves and faulty diaphragms require professional attention of the highest standard.
Frozen Condensate Pipes
During the winter times, your condensate pipe can freeze up and create blockages. A condensate pipe's job is to carry the condensate from your boiler through pipes and down into the drain. If your condensate pipe in a colder area or is external, it can be easier for them to freeze up and get blocked. If not treated, your boiler could potentially break down and stop working adequately.
Build-ups or sludge or Air can often cause the heat of a radiator to distribute unevenly. There are several different reasons why your radiator may have cold patches or could not be thoroughly heating all over your house. It could be that your thermostat is set too low; if cranked up, heat may begin to distribute more. The timer isn't working, or there is a circulation fault. The radiator valve may be closed, or there may be blockages within the system.
Boiler Not Responding to Thermostat
If your boiler is entirely unresponsive to any of your requests, your controls may be old or even broken. It seems very obvious; however, it is useful to try changing out the batteries. It may also be worth, if that doesn't work, try moving your thermostat closer to your heating boiler - it could be that there is an electrical interference between the two that is preventing it from functioning as necessary. If this fails, check the device's manual or contact the manufacturers or plumbers.
Gurgling, Banging or Whistling Noises Coming from Your Boiler
It is entirely possible and routine for your boiler, significantly when activated, to make some noises when working. However, if your boiler begins to make banging, whistling or gurgling noises, it would be wise to contact professional heating engineers. It could result from build-ups of limescale, referred to as ''kettling.'' Air in your system, faulty pumps and low water pressure can sometimes cause strange noises to emit from your boiler.
Pilot Light Keeps Switching Off
If your pilot light continues to go out, there may be a faulty thermocouple that could be cutting off your gas supply. The pilot light is there to light a large burner and should stay permanently lit. Draught build-ups can blow out these lights, and there could be a deposit build-up that also affects the light's consistency.
You may feel the urge to fix the pilot light yourself, which is doable. Please follow all the instructions given in your boiler manual; upon doing this, ensure there are no issues with your gas supply and ensure that your gas stopcock is on. However, if this continues to happen and your pilot light will not stay on, it may be better to have it taken care of by getting a new boiler installed by gas safe engineer professionals.
Boiler Won't Turn On
If you have noticed this problem, it is best to check all of your other power appliances. Check to see if they are all working; if they are, check your fuse boxes. It could be that your boxes have tripped or failed. If this is not the case, the boilers pressure could be low, or perhaps there is a blockage in the system, preventing your boiler from turning on. If you reach this point, it is important that you contact and book an experienced Gas Safe engineer to oversee the situation, and they will resolve it for you.
If your boiler entirely breaks down, it may be getting old or perhaps be an old brand or could slowly be deteriorating in its efficiency. A new boiler is your best bet in this situation and ensuring the new boiler is serviced regularly. Maybe you could look into an energy-efficient model that might last longer. All previous incidents could result in the boiler breaking down.
