  1. No Hot Water
  2. Your Boiler Is Dripping or Leaking
  3. Strange Noises Coming From Your Boiler
  4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit
  5. Boiler Has Low Pressure
  6. Issues With The Thermostat

1. No Hot Water – Ultimately, your boiler isn’t carrying out its function when this happens, and there are a few possible causes.

  • An airlock or diaphragm is degraded.
  • There is a low level of water.
  • There may be some thing wrong with the thermostat.
  • One of the motorised valves has broken.

The easiest and first things that you can inspect are the thermostat and the boilers water pressure. If it’s any one of these problems then follow the boiler manufacturers guidelines for correcting these issues. If it’s none of the issues above then you should call a qualified and Gas Safer registered boiler engineer to examine the problem safely.

2. Your Boiler Is Leaking Or Dripping

Drips and leaks are an obvious indicator of a potentially much more severe problem, but except when you’re qualified to do so you should not make an attempt to identify the problem yourself. A lot of the causes for the boiler to be having leaks or drips will likely require an authorised boiler engineer to repair them. Leaks and drips are often brought on by a damaged pump seal or pressure valve. After it’s replaced, you might need to turn down your boiler’s pressure, the boiler engineer will be able to advise you on this.

3. Strange Noises Coming From Your Boiler

Maybe easily the most apparent of all boiler issues is when your boiler begins to generate unusual noises, like gurgling or banging. It’s probable that air is trapped inside of the heating system is the issue, but it could possibly also be because of low water pressure. However, the problem can also be a lot more serious, such as the boiler reaching the end of its life and you need a brand-new boiler installed.

4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit

The solution for an unlit pilot light is simple, simply relight it. However, before trying that you need to check out the heating system to determine if there’s a much more dangerous issue first. Issues you might spot include:

  • A close by draft extinguishing the pilot light.
  • Build up close-by or around the {pilot}light which puts it out.
  • The supply of the gas might be halted by a thermocouple that needs repair.

If you do see anything that you think might be a problem then you need to get in touch with your local gas engineer to examine and if required deal with before you try to relight the pilot light.

5. Boiler Has Low Pressure

A loss of pressure in the boiler can be an indication of a problem with your heating system itself. You can easily check out the pressure of the boiler by looking at the gauge and ensuring that it’s over 1. If it’s not, then there’s a problem elsewhere inside of your heating system which really needs to be investigated by an authorised gas engineer.

6. Issues With The Thermostat

An unreliable thermostat can cause numerous problems, so it’s vital to set up a regular routine (at least once a quarter) to make sure that the thermostat is working as it should. It’s an easy test. You simply begin by making sure the thermostat is in the proper position and has the right setting and that the boiler turns off if you lower the temperature setting and then back on again if you raise the temperature setting.

In Conclusion

The above issues are the main ones that our heating engineers are called for. If you’re in any doubt at all then it’s much safer to contact an authorised heating engineer who is on the Gas Safe register to have a look and advise you.
