Emergency Repairs

Your boiler and central heating are essential. Without them you won’t have any hot water and will struggle to keep the property warm. This could lead to all kinds of issues, including damage to your health. If you encounter a problem it is best to arrange emergency repairs as soon as possible.

What problems can occur with my boiler?

Boilers can stop working for a number of reasons. It can be due to a single critical malfunction or a series of little issues that have combined. Even if the machine seems to be working properly there could be some hidden problems getting worse behind the scenes. This is why it is advised to get regular servicing.

The top issues that can occur with your boiler are:

  • No heat or hot water
  • Leaks or dripping
  • Kettling (banging noises coming from the appliance)
  • Lost pressure
  • Frozen condensate pipe
  • Thermostat malfunction
  • The pilot light has gone out
  • The boiler switches itself off

A professional engineer will be able to resolve each of these issues, even if they have to replace parts. You should contact a specialist at the earliest opportunity to ensure a fast response.

Why does my central heating stop working?

There are also a number of potential issues with central heating. The most common ones are:

  • Radiators won’t heat up
  • The tops of radiators are cold
  • The bottoms of radiators are cold

Again a professional engineer should be able to provide emergency repairs. Most of them can be traced to issues with machinery such as valves or pumps. Blockages of dirt or trapped air can result in many issues with them.

When an engineer arrives at your home they should start by doing a full inspection of the boiler. The check can help them to find the problem (or problems) and determine what course of action is necessary.

You should take the time to speak to the engineer and find out what they recommend. Generally you will want the quickest possible response so you get the heating and hot water back on. It is worth thinking long term though. For example it may be better to consider a new installation, especially if the cost of the repair is substantial.
