Common faults our engineers deal with
No hot water or heat – Obviously quit a large problem when it occurs and it can happen for a variety of reasons. If you can see it, have a look at the piolet light to check if it has gone out. If it fails to work it might need replacing. You might also have a faulty valve or something as basic (and rather common) as your thermostat not being turned up high enough.
A Leak in the System – Over a period of time you will find the seals within your boiler system become warn, which in turn reduces the pressure within the boiler. This will reduce the amount of heat and can be overcome by having yearly boiler maintenance.
Loud noises – As with the warn seals, over time your heating system can fill with sludge from dirty water. When this gets into the boiler it can start making loud banging noises. You could also have air caught in the system which will cause the same issue.
Loss of pressure – The main problem caused by having a cracked pipe or faulty/warn valve or seal.
Faulty Thermostat – Your thermostat is responsible for regulating heat. With age it will start giving inaccurate readings, putting your heating on at random times and inevitably increasing your heating bill.
Cold Radiators – Another problem that can be caused from air pockets in the system. As the air replaces hot water you could find a radiator that is hot at one end and not at the other. This can be fixed by bleeding the radiator using a bleed key. It could also be due to a faulty radiator valve or dirty water in the system, requiring a power flush.
Boiler turning off – Can be caused by a blockage in the system.
