How do I know if my boiler needs repair? 

Your boiler is an integral part of any functioning household; it controls the hot water capacity for showers, as well as the central heating for your radiators. What many people do not know, is that even if your boiler seems to be working fine, there is a chance that it could be functioning inefficiently and is in need of repair. Fortunately, we have identified a few things that you can look out for to find out whether your boiler is in need of repair.


The production of odd noises is one prominent sign of a failing boiler. Unsettling noises from your boiler, such as pounding, kettling, or screeching, are a dead giveaway that repairs are necessary. These sounds frequently indicate internal problems or the presence of limescale, both of which can reduce the heating system's performance.


Visible water pools or leaks near the boiler may also indicate more serious problems. Numerous concerns, such as corroded pipes, faulty pressure relief valves, or damaged valves, might cause a boiler to leak. Ignoring leaks can result in mould growth, water damage, and more boiler system problems. 

It is best to arrange a boiler repair as soon as you see any leaks to deal with the underlying issue and stop additional damage. Speak with one of our heating engineers in York or Leeds for expert advice by calling 01904 373075.

Boiler pressure

Another wise practice is to keep an eye on your boiler's pressure gauge. It is important to take notice of a low water pressure reading on the gauge as it is a warning sign. In these cases, it's critical to schedule a repair to take care of any leaks or system issues that might be causing the pressure drop. Ignoring this alert could result in more serious harm and higher energy usage.

Water temperature issues 

Temperature-related problems are another sign of a failing boiler. It is a clear sign that your boiler is not working at its best if your water won't heat up or takes a very long time to reach the appropriate temperature. There are several reasons why the heating process can be inefficient, such as malfunctioning parts or silt accumulation in the system.

Inefficient radiators

Likewise, problems extending to the radiators can be indicative of a boiler in distress. If your radiators exhibit a reluctance to heat up or display sluggish heating performance, it is prudent to consider these symptoms as a call for a professional assessment and subsequent repair. Addressing such concerns promptly not only ensures your comfort but also prevents potential exacerbation of issues, ultimately saving you from more extensive and costly repairs in the future.
