Replacing a broken gas boiler
If your hot water boiler is broken or your central heating system is not functioning properly it can cause major upheaval in your home. To avoid problems with your boiler you should have a boiler repair / maintenance plan in place.
It is also important to make sure that your boiler is serviced regularly by a registered Gas Safe heating engineer.
The most common symptoms of a broken boiler are –
- No hot water from your tap
- Radiators not heating effectively or at all
- Pilot light not working
- Boiler pressure keeps dropping or rising
- Strange noises coming from your boiler
It is important to detect any problems with your boiler system early as faulty boilers can release Carbon Monoxide gas. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can be fatal and it is important to have this checked regularly and to have proper Carbon Monoxide monitor installed in your home.
Boilers which are not functioning to maximum energy efficiency will use more power to heat your water and your central heating, which increases the price of gas and your fuel bills.
Before you consider paying for boiler repairs it is worthwhile checking to see if you qualify for a free replacement via one of the Government free boiler replacement schemes.
