Boiler repair and service
Boiler repairs and service
Our heating systems are one of the most important features of our home, providing heat and hot water throughout the year.
In fact a boiler breakdown is almost inconceivable, as to be left without heat for days during the height of winter would be a nightmare. But this happens because homeowners neglect their boiler whilst it’s working without a hitch.
The problem is a fault could strike at any time, without warning. When this happens you don’t want to be paying the world to have the issue repaired.
A boiler service should be carried out annually, to ensure the system is working efficiently and there isn’t a hidden problem that could cause a fault.
Services will also bring up other dangers such as carbon monoxide leaks. Monoxide poisoning affects hundreds of residents every year and is almost impossible to detect because the gas is both odourless and colourless.
Apart from the yearly service, notable reasons why a boiler service would be wise include:
The pilot light extinguishing regularly
The pilot light’s flame being unusually small or partly yellow or orange
There is soot or staining on the boiler
By having a service as soon as possible you’ll ensure:
Avoid missing out on heat and hot water if there’s a fault
Sometimes the worst does happen and our boiler will breakdown. Getting the problem fixed as quickly as possible is a top priority so you’re not left without heat and hot water for longer than necessary.
A boiler fault could unfortunately be anything, and the cost associated will change depending on the problem.
In the middle of winter the price of call-outs and repairs can double and a boiler of over 10-years-old is more likely to fault at this time.
Our advice would be to consider investing in an A-rated efficient boiler to replace your old, inefficient system. This way you’ll reduce your bills and ensure a fault doesn’t happen in the near future.

Energy Performance of Houses
The below data demonstrates the energy performance of homes in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating comes into play heavily if you want to sell your household, as possible buyers will see what amount they're probably going to be paying for their home heating bills. Property upgrades including insulation help to significantly boost a home's EPC rating.
