5 signs that mean your boiler needs repairing

 No heat or hot water

Is it taking longer than normal for your boiler to heat up? Or does it never heat up? This is a significant sign that there is a problem with your boiler. Need a competent accredited & approved heating engineer contact us using our details below! 


The leak, no matter how large or tiny, will do more harm to your boiler. Leaks have been linked to humidity, mould, and internal boiler problems. If you discover any leaks, get your boiler checked out as soon as possible.

 The pilot light is off

When your pilot light goes out, it usually indicates an issue with your gas supply. If you see this, make sure you call a Gas Safe registered engineer to investigate. Gas Safe registered engineers are not only taught to perform gas work, but they are also fully qualified.

 Boiler Pressure 

Low boiler pressure is frequently caused by leaks; if your boiler pressure is less than one, contact our heating engineers to come take a look!

 Condensate pipe-freezing 

The boiler will not function correctly if the condensate pipe freezes. The reason for this is that your boiler's sensors will notice that it has become clogged. There are numerous methods for thawing a frozen pipe, but if you'd prefer leave it to the professionals, we're here to help.
