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 within 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.
Older thermostats can become less reliable as they age. You may want to consider upgrading to a smart thermostat (such as hive or nest), or installing a new thermostat controller.
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.
How much do Boiler Services Cost?
Two of the main factors that influence the cost of boiler and central heating work is the type of work you require and your location within the UK.
The type of boiler work you need carried out will change the cost due to differing materials and labour time required. For example, a boiler service will require minimal parts and often takes less than an hour, so prices start from as little as £50. However, a new boiler installation will have high material costs and can take several hours to install, so prices are typically start from £800 and increase to several thousand pounds.
Your location in the UK will also determine the cost. Some areas have fewer technicians available to carry out work, which increases demand. Boiler technicians in some of the major cities can also cost more compared with other locations. To check exactly how much a boiler engineer costs in your area, use our quick price checker above.
