A boiler needs to be regularly serviced so it doesn’t run into problems. If you’re living in a flat or rented accommodation, then your landlord should be making sure that the boiler is serviced in accordance with the law. If you’re unsure about this ask your landlord about it.
There are a number of problems your boiler can run into and you don’t want to be left with no hot water or heat once the freezing weather arrives. Not having any hot water or heat can be down to a number of issues such as a dodgy thermostat or the water pressure is too low. There could be problems with airlocks and valves, and unless you have your boiler regularly serviced, then you’re not going to know about any of this until it breaks down.
Leaking and Dripping
Leaking and dripping is a common problem and there could be a number of reasons behind this, if your boiler is leaking or dripping then please get in touch as soon as possible with your landlord.
Noises, Low Water Pressure
Any noises could be caused by air in the system or low water pressure, there is also the possibility of pump failure. If the pilot light goes out you could be looking at a broken thermocouple or a build-up of deposit, or a draught has blown the pilot light out.
Loss of Pressure, No Heat
Loss of pressure, frozen pipes, problems with the thermostat, kettling and boilers switching themselves off are common problems. Another common issue is radiators not coming on and heating up, often the only solution for this is flushing the system or chemically cleaning it – something that should only be done by a professional.
