Boiler Repair and Service Costs around Cardiff

Looking for a central heating boiler repair or service within Cardiff? Our engineers in Cardiff are going to offer you the ideal prices for having a central heating boiler repair or service completed.

Boilers are among the most significant areas of any house, offering heat and hot water all year round. This means any problems should be dealt with previous to turning into a significant problem.

In the midst of winter it could cost a minimum of £200 simply in call-out fees for an engineer. This is ahead of the cost of replacing parts.

To prevent spending a significant amount of money, make certain to have your central heating boiler serviced on an annual basis so any faults can be detected at the earliest opportunity. As well as this, having a service will make sure your central heating boiler is operating efficiently, lowering your costs.

The service will also showcase any danger too, such as a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide poisoning is responsible for hundreds of deaths and hospitalisations every year, so make certain this doesn't happen to you.

We're able to offer you as many as four engineers, who'll supply quotations for the work. You'll receive a property visit from experts in Cardiff who'll offer the boiler repair or service for a excellent price.

Average cost

The average cost of a boiler service is around £72, but you could pay anything between £58 and £100. The average cost of a repair is £182 a time, but it depends on the repair. The average cost of a replacement gas valve or expansion vessel, for example, is £300 each, plus labour of around £50 per hour. National companies may charge more than small local companies since they have more overheads. You’ll also find seasonal differences, as companies charge less in the summer when they are less busy than in the winter when they have lots of work.

FAQs

How to service a boiler

During a boiler service, your boiler engineer will perform a series of checks to ensure that your boiler is safe and efficient. First, they will conduct a visual inspection to check for any corrosion or leaks. They will also check the flame in your boiler. They’ll then remove the boiler casing and check all the components, including the heat exchanger, burner and spark probe, then clean the inside. After this, they’ll check the flue for obstructions and ensure that it’s safely fitted. They will then do a gas pressure check to ensure the boiler is working at the right pressure, before firing it up to check for any working faults.

How often should I have a boiler service?

You should have your boiler serviced every year. This ensures that your central heating system is running safely and efficiently, but it’s often also a requirement to keep your boiler’s warranty valid. To avoid disruption to your heating, the best time of year to service your boiler is the summer. You’ll often find that boiler companies will charge less because they have less work.

How to repair a boiler leak

If your boiler is leaking, there are some checks that you can do yourself. However, you should never attempt to repair your boiler yourself – only a Gas Safe-registered engineer should conduct repairs.

There are 3 main reasons why your boiler might be leaking: there’s a pressure valve fault, a temperature valve leak or corrosion in the system. An engineer will be able to spot the problem quickly, but in the meantime there are a few things you can do:

Check the pipe fittings

If your boiler is leaking water around the pipe fittings, it could be an installation fault and you should get in touch with the engineer that fitted it. You can check the pipe fittings by drying the area then waiting to see if the water appears again. If it does, you may be able to do a ¼ turn of the pipe to stop it. However, you should still call the engineer that installed it to ask them to check the PTFE tape on the inside.

Inspect the seals

Over time, the rubber seals on a boiler can start to perish, so if you have an old boiler this could be the source of your leak. If you have a new boiler, it could be caused by your boiler running over pressure.

Heat exchanger corrosion

Unfortunately, if a boiler engineer discovers that the boiler is leaking water from the heat exchanger, this is the end of the road for your system. The heat exchanger is the most expensive part of your boiler, so it makes more financial sense to replace your boiler with a newer, more efficient model rather than try to replace it.

Does home insurance cover boiler repairs?

Boiler breakdowns are common, especially in the winter. That means that insurance companies are less likely to insure your boiler as standard on your policy. Make sure you read your existing home insurance policy to see what’s covered. Usually, you will have to buy emergency home cover as an add-on or extra to your policy. It may cost around £5 extra per month.

There are also standalone policies out there just for boilers. There are plenty of websites available that will be able to show you the market so you can choose the best policy for you.
