Symptoms that indicate a boiler needs to be repaired

Radiators that have cold spots

 If you've turned on the heating and the radiators haven't warmed up after recently bleeding them, there's probably a problem with the heat exchanger or the thermostat that has to be repaired by a competent gas engineer.

Unusual boiler noises

Boiler noises such as kettling, loud bangs, and gurgling indicate that there is either trapped air in the system or limescale that has to be cleaned from the heat exchanger.

You notice the smelly odour of a gas leak

 If you notice an egg-like odour in the air, please call our gas experts immediately as this might indicate a gas leak anywhere in the system, which is clearly highly dangerous.

If you repeatedly have boiler breakdowns

Consider if the cost of repairs and call-outs outweighs the cost of a new boiler if you need to call a Gas Safe licenced engineer more than once a year. Regular maintenance on your current boiler should keep it running well all year, so a replacement is only necessary if it persists to malfunction.

How Much Does a Boiler Repair Cost? 

The cost of a boiler repair depends upon the type of boiler you have installed in your home. Moreover, it also depends upon the broken parts of the boiler, as well as the area of the unit. A rough estimate of the boiler repair costs approximately £300-£500. This estimation can significantly go up to £800 depending on various factors. 

The boiler repair can further depend on the contractors you are working with and whether they charge call-out fees. 

Common Causes of Boiler Breakdowns:

Boiler breakdowns can occur for a variety of reasons, and it's important to understand the common causes so that you can take preventative measures. Here are a few common causes of boiler breakdowns:

  • Low water pressure: If your boiler is experiencing low water pressure, it may struggle to heat your home effectively. This can be caused by a leak in the system or a problem with the pressure valve.
  • Faulty thermostats: If your thermostat is not functioning properly, it may not be able to accurately detect the temperature in your home, leading to inconsistent heating. This can be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat or improper installation.
  • Pilot light problems: The pilot light is responsible for igniting the gas that heats your boiler. If the pilot light is not working correctly, your boiler may not be able to heat your home at all. This can be caused by a blockage in the gas line or a malfunctioning ignition system.
  • Mineral buildup: Over time, minerals can build up inside your boiler's heat exchanger, reducing its efficiency and potentially leading to breakdowns. This is especially common in areas with hard water.

By understanding the common causes of boiler breakdowns, you can take steps to prevent them from occurring. Regular maintenance and inspection by a qualified professional can help identify and address any issues before they lead to a major breakdown. If you do experience a boiler breakdown, the experts at Green Flame Plumbing and Heating can diagnose and repair the issue quickly and effectively.

  • If you have an electric boiler, you will be investing approximately £100 to £400.
