Common Boiler Issues
- Banging whistling gurgling noises coming from the boiler
A noisy boiler can be worrying, and even a little scary. However, a noisy boiler is a fairly common issue. The type of noises coming from your boiler will help identify the problem. A noisy boiler is usually the result of one of the following issues; low water pressure, air in the system, a faulty pump, or a sign of kettling - which can be more serious. Kettling occurs because of a build-up of limescale in the central heating system (see our kettling section for more information).
- Boiler switching itself off
When a boiler switches itself off, there could be a blockage in the system that is restricting water flow, and therefore causing low pressure in the system. Your boiler may benefit from a Powerflush in this situation. The pump could also be faulty, and consequently, it isn't circulating the water. refer to your boiler's manual, or call us for assistance 24/7.
Frozen condensation pipes
All boilers heat water as their main function, a bit like a kettle. The steam that they generate has to go somewhere; otherwise, the pressure in your boiler will increase. The steam is allowed to leave the boiler through the condensate pipe - a small pipe that allows the steam produced to escape safely and turn to water as it cools. In the seasonal, cold conditions that we can experience in the UK, it is common for the water to freeze and cause a blockage in this pipe.
Intermittent heat & hot water
If your boiler is having issues with heat and hot water, it can be caused by many problems that are best diagnosed by a heating engineer. These can be issues caused by a broken thermostat, low water levels, faulty motorised valves, airlocks, broken diaphragms, faulty motorised valves, and more. It is a good idea to get an expert to diagnose the problem for your safety.
Kettling is the term given to the loud banging noises that may come from your boiler. It can be quite scary when you hear your boiler making loud, unusual noises. However, there's no need to panic; it isn't going to explode. But you should fix the problem before the boiler breaks beyond repair. Boiler kettling is usually the result of the mineral deposits left behind in the tank due to hard water, such as limescale. Most homes have some level of hard water in their plumbing supply, but it could be higher than usual in your pipes. - Kettling can be a costly issue for a boiler, as it will likely shorten your boiler's lifespan if it goes untreated. We advise you to call us as soon as possible so our experts can help with your central heating. An engineer can Powerflush your system, or drain the system and remove the unwanted substances.
A boiler leak can happen for several reasons. A leak in the central heating system could also cause issues such as low boiler pressure and water damage to the surrounding area of the leak, (check out our leak detection services). If the leak is coming from the boiler itself, then there could be a damaged internal component such as a pump seal or pressure valve. If the leak is around your pipes or water tank, then the fitting may have corroded due to incorrect installation of the boiler. We will diagnose and walk you through your options to repair or replace your boiler.
Low boiler pressure
this may be displayed on the built-in pressure gauge. Low pressure can impede your boiler's performance. Many things can cause low boiler pressure, but often it is caused by a leak in your system, faulty pressure relief valve, or radiators needing bleeding.
Pilot light keeps switching off
Gas boilers have a pilot light that stays lit under your boiler. The pilot light, can in some situations turn off - this might be caused by the gas supply not being able to reach your boiler. First, you should check other gas appliances, such as an oven or hob, to make sure it isn't the gas supply. If the gas supply is ok, then the gas boiler may have a faulty thermocouple. We highly recommend contacting an engineer to help you rectify the issue safely and correctly.
- Radiators not heating up
Cold patches in radiators is fairly common and is often due to the build-up of sludge or air trapped in the system. If the top of the radiator remains cold, it is likely due to trapped air, like a bubble in the radiator and you'll need to bleed the radiator.
Thermostats may lose accuracy over time, or become damaged or broken. In this case, you will see intermittent temperature fluctuations, or perhaps it won't work at all - temperature may be stuck at a certain setting, or not come on at all. Thermostats are relatively inexpensive (unless they are a smart thermostat) and it is usually cheaper to replace rather than fix the faulty thermostat. First, you need to diagnose if the thermostat is the cause of your issue, and that's where we can help.
