What's wrong with my boiler?

Could you have a leak?

Boilers operate with valves and seals to enable the full functioning of the appliance. Because of this, there is always the feasibility that the boiler is leaking. Leaks can be caused by a variety of issues, related to but not exclusive to; rusting, corrosion, faulty pumps somewhere in the system, high temperatures and wear and tear.

Leaks can be quickly diagnosed and solved, however, it is also possible for new installations to have a leak, in these cases you are covered by our new boiler guarantee.

Different types of boiler

Deciding on which boiler is right for you can be its own challenge, there are many types of boiler on the market, and depending on your requirements all could be a good solution.

The most common type of boiler is the combi boiler. It combines the two systems of water and central heating, negating totally the need for an external water tank.

Other types of boiler are more traditional, that have external water tanks. These include a system boiler and a standard boiler. The system boiler uses an external tank - used to store hot water, while heating is controlled through the actual boiler.

Standard boilers need both hot and cold water external tanks. These types of boilers are more common amongst older properties and systems.

Deciding on the right boiler

There are lots of options for a new boiler installation. Large brands have dominated the market for the past 40-years and companies like Hoover, Bosch and Whirlpool are now established with a selection of boilers for all budgets.

Whilst the choice can be stifling, even confusing, you may think that they will all do the same job. This is not the case. When choosing a boiler you should consider, your boiler needs, budget and what is suitable for the space. All come with their own advantages, depending on your needs. Our team can run through these options so you have a clear understanding of what boiler you need.

How often does a boiler need to be serviced

As an integral part of your homes DNA, a boiler should be regularly serviced to avoid disruption and breakdowns. We recommend this boiler servicing once a year. This keeps your boiler in the optimum condition and will avoid any major problems.
