A boiler engineer can carry out a range of services to ensure your boiler and central heating work perfectly all year round. Different types of boilers may require a specially trained technician to carry out any servicing or repairs that may be required. Boiler engineers can also replace boilers, radiators and even install smart heating devices.
How much does a Boiler Engineer Cost?
One of the main factors when calculating the cost of a boiler engineer is the work that they will be carrying out. For example, boiler engineer prices for repairs and maintenance will be far less than the cost of a complete boiler replacement. This is primarily due to the added cost of purchasing a new boiler as well as the longer job time.
Another important factor is your location within the UK. Unfortunately, prices do often fluctuate throughout the nation, with some cities and towns having cheaper costs than others. You can check the prices of boiler engineers in your area of the UK by using the quick checker tool below.
In most cases, basic repairs and servicing can cost as little as £50. However, a complete boiler replacement will typically range from £800 to several thousand pounds.

Common Boiler Repair Faults
Below are some of the common boiler faults a boiler engineer can fix and repair.
No heat or hot water
There are a number of reasons this can occur. Some common causes include there being no pilot light, there is a problem with the diaphragm, an airlock or a motorised valve has failed. In some cases the thermostat is not turned up high enough or there is a leak in the central heating.
Cool or cold radiators
A common cause of cold radiators is trapped air. In most cases, this can be quickly fixed with a radiator key which allows the air to escape and the warm water will then properly circulate throughout the radiator. The radiator valve may also need replacing, and in some cases a power flush can be used to clean the radiator.
This problem is caused by limescale building up withing the system, and is particularly common in locations with hard water, such as London. This can be fixed by fitting a scale reducer, and your boiler engineer may also suggest a power flush to clean out any built up limescale.
Leaks can occasionally occur within a boiler or throughout a central heating system. In most cases, leaks can be prevented with regular boiler servicing. Leaks typically result from faulty or old seals.
Pilot light turns off
When pilot lights don’t ignite or keep turning off there could be a broken thermocouple or a problem with the gas valve. In other cases the pilot light may need to be cleaned if it is being blocked by debris. It is also a good idea to check that there isn’t a draught that could be blowing out the pilot light.
Banging noises are commonly caused by either debris or air within the system. A build up of limescale within the system can also result in a boiler producing unusual sounds. Low pressure is another cause of banging sounds. A boiler technician will be able to quickly diagnose and fix the problem.
A boiler system losing pressure is commonly caused by a leak within the central heating. Other possible problems include an issue with the pressure relief valve or the expansion vessel.
Frozen condensation pipe
Condensing boilers use a condensate pipe that takes away excess water away from the boiler. In some cases, this pipe can freeze which will stop the boiler from functioning correctly.
Boiler keeps turning off
This could be caused by one of the problems listed above, such as air in the system or a blocked condensate pipe. If you need the problem fixed fast, get in touch with one of our emergency boiler engineers.
