Signs you need to look out for
The most crucial part of your heating system is your boiler and when it suddenly stops working, it causes a major issue. There are a few signs that you can look out for, these include...
Boilers are usually known to run quietly but when they start to make clunking, whirling or banging noises, it could mean there is something wrong with it. Different sounds could mean different things, for example, if it is making a whistling sound, it could mean that the water pressure is low. So if your boiler is making strange noises, it is very important to get this looked into.
High Heating Bills
If you have noticed a sudden increase in your heating bills, it could mean that there is a leak present in your boiler. Let our fully qualified Gas Safe engineers take a look at your boiler!
Delays in Heating
After turning your heating on, does it take it longer than usual for it to heat up? If this is the case, it may mean there is an issue with your boiler's circulation.
Over time boilers tend to show signs of wear and tear. Even if they have not caused an issue, it does not mean that it does not need repairing. Looking after it can help increase your boiler's life.

How to maintain your boiler
There are a few things that you can do to help maintain your boiler and prevent the chances of it breaking down on you.
Get it serviced annually
When you get your boiler serviced by a qualified heating engineer, they will ensure that all components are thoroughly checked. Doing this will prevent chances of your boiler breaking down, helping save money on any unexpected repairs costs.
Turn it on during the summer
It is often known for people to turn their heating off doing the summer. Although this is okay, you need to make sure you run it for a brief period of time every 3-4 weeks, this is to ensure all parts are functioning like they are supposed to.
Insulate the pipe
Insulating your condensate pipes will protect them from freezing and bursting. You can also set your thermostat to a lower temperature or an automatic schedule so they do not freeze.

How can I tell whether my boiler needs to be repaired or replaced?
It might be tough to tell whether your boiler needs to be repaired or replaced. We've compiled a list of reasons when you should get your boiler fixed rather than replaced.
When newer boilers break down, people often assume they need to get them repaired immediately. However this is not always required as newer boilers come along with warranties and depending on what the issue is, they can be easily repaired.
If you have had the same boiler for over 7 years and its breakdown, it is still possible to get it repaired. However, if it is constantly breaking down and costing you more to repair, then we may suggest starting thinking of getting a new boiler installed.
Keep it cleaned
Reducing the clutter surrounding your boiler and regularly dusting it can help extend your boiler life. This is because it prevents dust from building up inside the boiler.
Other things that can help you decide that your boiler needs to be repaired and not replaced include:
- There is only an issue with one component rather than several of them
- The radiators do not work but the boiler is working correctly
Make sure you speak to a qualified and experienced heating engineer who will be able to give you their expert opinion.
