Boiler Repairs

There is never a good time to have a boiler problem, especially when the cold weather sets in! Luckily, we can help. We know that most central heating and boiler problems occur after being idle through the summer, so we would always recommend having a Gas Safe engineer investigate any issues and carry out boiler repairs before they cause a problem.

How do I know my boiler is not working correctly?

Whether you have a conventional or combi boiler, there are some common problems that you can identify yourself. Here is our simple list of symptoms that may indicate that your boiler is not running smoothly, and a more serious problem requires investigation.

Is your boiler using more gas than usual?

Energy bills often fluctuate month to month and you might not think twice about the fact that your gas bill has increased, but if your gas bill dramatically increases, this could indicate a problem as your boiler is using more gas than usual.

Is your boiler unusually noisy?

If you’ve noticed that your boiler is unusually noisy, it could be a sign of a problem. Banging, whistling, or gurgling noises can indicate various problems such as air in the system, low water pressure, a faulty pump or ‘kettling’, which is a build-up of limescale in the system. Kettling can be easily treated with a descaler but this problem needs to be addressed quickly to avoid causing long-term damage to the boiler.

Noises from pipes or radiators can usually be resolved with a power flush. This process will cleanse your heating system and help to ensure even heating throughout the home and also maintain the warranty of your boiler.

Do you still have heat and hot water?

It may be a silly question, but it can be difficult to tell, especially in the summer months. You can’t always tell if your boiler or heating system is working properly just by looking at it. That’s why we recommend testing your boiler and heating system throughout the year. It’s especially important to use your heating during the winter, even on a low setting, to avoid the pipes freezing.

Does your property have cold spots or radiators that are not heating up?

If your property has cold spots or radiators that are not heating up, it could be a sign that your boiler is not functioning correctly.

Alternatively, it could be a blockage in your heating system. Cold patches in radiators are a common problem and usually the result of sludge or trapped air within the system.

Has the boiler’s pressure dropped?

Checking your boiler pressure gauge regularly is an important part of keeping your heating system in good shape. If the pressure drops below 1, your heating system will not function correctly. A low pressure gauge can be commonly caused by a water leak, a failing pressure relief valve or if the radiators have recently been bled.

If you notice that the pressure has dropped, don’t ignore it! Look for any visible leaks first and then fix them as soon as possible. If you can’t find anything or are unsure how to fix the problem on your own, contact us so we can help you out with a consultation or initial repair.

Does the boiler switch itself off?

This could indicate a pressure issue caused by a faulty pump, or blockage in the system that is restricting water flow. It’s important for the boiler to be able to maintain a steady pressure, so that it can provide consistent heat output.

Top Quality Service!

Josh was absolutely 100% professional and helped me every step of the way with my over complicated air source heat pump when another local company let me down.
He explained everything, how to use it and he even set it up for me.
Highly recommended, thank you Josh!

Amber Heating is THE best plumbing firm

Alister worked ceaselessly to discover what was the cause of the toxic smell in our en-suite and solved the problem. We cannot thank him enough for solving a problem that had blighted our lives for a number of years. Several well-known plumbers came to our property and failed to identify the source of the fumes. If there were ten stars we would use them all.


Highly Recommend Amber Heating

I would highly recommend Amber heating. Always on time always polite and friendly and helpful Staff.
Always do an excellent job.
Thank you.
