Some common boiler faults we can help you with
No heat or hot water: One of the most common problems requiring boiler repair in Plymouth and can be for a variety of reasons. You could find you have a problem with the piolet light or diaphragm or a valve might have failed. Other issues could be a link in the system or you simply don’t have your thermostat turned up high enough.
Boiler Leaks: Over time you will need to replace warn seals which will reduce the pressure and inevitably prevent heat and hot water from being produced.
Banging noises: Often caused by sludge in your system which when passing through your boiler creates a banging noise. You could also have air in the system or the water pressure is too low.
Losing pressure: Mainly caused due to a leak in the system caused by a cracked pipe or faulty valve.
Thermostat problems: Thermostats control and regulate the heat your boiler produces. Over time they can become inaccurate causing the boiler to come on at random times causing an increase in your heating bill.
Radiators not getting hot enough: This can sometimes be an easy fix depending on the problem. The most common cause is air in the system that can be released using a blead key. Other problems might involve the water being dirty requiring a power flush. It could also be a problem with the individual radiator requiring a new valve.
Boiler keeps switching off: Often caused by low pressure within the system or a blockage.
