• Pilot Light – If the piolet light goes out this could be due to a problem with the gas valve. We have also found that if there is a faulty seal around the boiler it is being blown out by a draft. It’s also worth giving the piolet light a clean as debris can also effect its reliability.
• Losing pressure – while conducting boiler repairs in Plympton we often come across a loss of pressure due to a leak in the heating system. Secondly you will need to check the pressure relief valve or if the expansion vessel fails this can reduce pressure
• Frozen Pipes – In Cold weather condensate pipes can freeze resulting in a blockage in the system. This will cause the boiler to fail but is a relatively easy fix.
• Brocken Thermostat – You will find older boilers have a problem with their Thermostat as they start to become inaccurate. This will lead to the boiler turning itself off randomly without you knowing.
• Radiators – If you are having a problem with the heat generated by your radiators you could find you have air in the system. This can often be released using a bleed key or by having a power flush.
