At Your Service
Boilers are like anything else in life, they need to be looked after and maintained. Give your boiler a regular service and in return it will last longer and work more efficiently, saving you money and worry. It’s vital that you always use a Gas Safe Registered Engineer (such as ourselves) who will not only check the basic safety of your boiler but will also carry out performance tests and repair anything that needs fixing.
What Could Go Wrong With My Condensing Boiler?
Condensing boilers are the most common type of new boiler. They are a godsend to households fighting higher gas and electricity costs, but can require more frequent boiler servicing due to their complexity. The good news is that condensing boilers are up to 20% more efficient than regular boilers. The bad news, however, is that the system is more likely to freeze up in cold temperatures. For this reason it is important to have regular gas boiler servicing and keep it maintained in perfect working order.
Signs To Look Out For
The most obvious sign of a boiler which is starting to fail or is in need of some maintenance or servicing is quite simply when it’s not heating up water anymore, both through the tap and the radiators. Though this may be an obvious sign, trouble may well start long before complete failure and so it pays to know what to look out for.
One of the clearest signs to look out for is whether your boiler flame is clear blue. An orange or yellow gas flame is a great indicator of a problem and means it’s time to call your boiler engineer.
Boiler pressure is another clear indicator of imminent failure, If your boiler pressure is suddenly dropping or rising, or if the pressure remains too high for prolonged periods of time, it may be time to consider boiler servicing .
It’s also a bad sign if you hear knocking or ticking noises, particularly when your boiler starts up. This could be a mechanical issue within your boiler which may lead to inefficiencies or imminent failure and should be checked as soon as possible.
