Common Boiler Problems and How Regular Servicing Prevents Them

Common Boiler Problems and how Regular Servicing prevents them

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to overlook the care our appliances deserve — take your car, for instance; it gets regular attention – but what about your boiler?

There are many ways regular servicing can prevent common boiler problems, so it’s important to recognise when something is wrong, and when a service may be due.

At Fineheat, we’re committed to providing year-round boiler service, ensuring our customers are well taken care of and the highest standards maintained. Our blogs offer free help and advice, serving as your go-to resource whenever you need it, so let’s get started and find out if you need a boiler service.

Here are a few key issues and how regular servicing can help:

 

Reduced Efficiency: Over time, our boilers can become less efficient due to dirt and debris build-up which often goes unnoticed. Regular servicing with our engineers includes cleaning, ensuring optimal performance and maximum energy efficiency.

Leaking or Dripping: Small leaks can escalate into major problems if they are left unattended. Servicing helps identify and fix leaks early, preventing water damage and potential health hazards that can go undetected.

No Heat or Hot Water: A lack of heat or hot water is a common complaint that we hear about. Regular checks during servicing can detect and address issues with components like the thermostat or pressure valves, ensuring a consistent supply of warmth.

Strange Noises: Unusual sounds such as banging or whistling may indicate underlying problems, if you hear unfamiliar noises contact us as soon as possible. Servicing involves checking and tightening loose components, reducing the risk of noisy disturbances and potential damage.

Carbon Monoxide Leaks: A serious and potentially life-threatening issue. Fineheat’s regular servicing includes inspecting for gas leaks, ensuring proper ventilation, and checking the combustion process to prevent carbon monoxide leaks. Most importantly, this keeps you, your family, and your home safe.

Pilot Light Issues: If the pilot light frequently goes out, it could be a sign of problems with the thermocouple or gas supply. With regular servicing it ensures these components are in good condition, preventing disruptions to the pilot light.

 

Regular boiler servicing is a health check for your heating system. It helps identify and fix small issues before they turn into costly problems, ensuring your boiler operates efficiently, safely, and reliably. So don’t put off your boiler service any longer – if you’re looking for engineers who are efficient, give the best standards and are reliable then contact Fineheat today.

 

We are open Monday – Saturday from 9am – 6.30pm
