Common boiler problems found by our boiler repair team in Bolton

If you're asking yourself 'does my boiler need a boiler repair?', these are some common boiler problems and faults BHE's team deals with:

❌ No heating or hot water, or unreliable heating or hot water supply

If you have hot water but no heating, your combi boiler may be set incorrectly and you'll need to set it to heat both water and provide central heating. This can often happen after summer, when you use hot water but don't need the central heating. It's also worth checking the times that your boiler's set to come on, and bleed your radiators to release any trapped air.

No hot water or heating at all? You'll need a boiler repair. Your boiler could be disconnected from power, gas or water supplies, your boiler's pressure may need to be checked or your may have issues such as a frozen condensate pipe or airlock.

❌ Low boiler pressure

Low pressure in a boiler will result in poor hot water supply and no heating in your radiators. Low boiler pressure might be caused by bleeding radiators or by a leak in the system which reduces the amount of water running through your central heating. Some homeowners choose to repressurise their boiler themselves by opening the boiler filling loop which lets more water into the system.

Just contact BHE's boiler repair engineer team for advice if you suspect your boiler's pressure is low, or book a boiler repair callout for a fast response.

❌ Leaking boiler

A leaking boiler can be a cause for concern, leading to many boiler repair callouts. We tend to find that leaking boilers are caused by too much boiler pressure, corroded components such as pipes, faulty parts or leaking seals. Leaks in a boiler often cause other issues such as corrosion, water damage or failure of electrical and other boiler components, and leaking boilers should be repaired quickly.

If you've found a leak in your boiler, contact our boiler repair team for a fast response callout. Book your boiler repair callout now!

❌ Boiler pilot light keeps going out

Pilot lights are often a problem in older boiler models - newer boiler models don't have pilot lights. A pilot light needs to be lit continually in order to light the main boiler burner, but occasionally components such as the thermocouple fail which causes the pilot light to go out.

Firstly, check that other gas appliances such as your gas hob or fire are still working to make sure that there are no gas supply problems. If they're fully-functioning, call BHE to book a boiler repair callout where we can investigate further to indentfy faulty parts.

❌ Unusual noises, like whistling, gurgling, banging or whooshing

If your boiler's making an unusual sound, it can signal a number of issues such as trapped air in your central heating system, pressure that's too high, or blocked air intake pipes or air filters. Whistling sounds, like a kettle, are an indication of 'boiler kettling' where water is heating too quickly to boiling point which results in steam and trapped air. Boiler kettling is often a sign of limescale build-up or a faulty component.

Regular boiler servicing will clean and maintain your system, but if you're suddenly experiencing unusual noises, book a boiler repair callout to have the system checked and fully investigated.
