The Most Common Boiler Repair Signs To Look Out For
If you encounter a boiler breakdown or your boiler experiences a fault, it can sometimes be a stressful experience. Boilers are by far one of the most dependable heating systems for your home and commercial premises. Although boilers are meant to withstand wear and tear and are built for longevity, you can always encounter an issue with your boiler. With over 40 years of experience in providing a first-class service for boiler repair in Cardiff, here are some of the most common signs that our fully qualified gas engineers have found to warrant our boiler repair service:
- No heating or hot water is available from radiators or taps
- Odd noises from the boiler, such as banging, whistling or gurgling
- The pilot light has gone out or is an unusual colour
- The thermostat is not working correctly and not showing the correct temperature
- Low boiler pressure due to a leak or a new relief valve being required
- Odd smell emitting from the boiler or around the property
- Water leaking or rust appearing around the boiler
- Energy bills are getting higher than normal
The best way to avoid the need for boiler repair is to have an annual boiler service by a team of experienced heating engineers such as ourselves. This will ensure that your boiler is working efficiently and will help to detect faults early on before they escalate further where you will require boiler repair to be carried out.

Simple Checks To See If Your Boiler Is Broken
We strongly advise against you taking on a boiler repair yourself and should always seek a professional repair service to be carried out by qualified and Gas Safe registered engineers, such as the team here at Eric Collier & Son. However, there are some simple checks that you can carry out yourself before calling a heating engineer. If you require boiler repair in Cardiff, call us now on 02920 508711.
One of the first checks that you can do for your boiler is to see if there is any supply of electricity. Check to see if it’s plugged in and if it is but still has no power then contact your electricity provider. If you have experienced a power cut, there is a good chance that your boiler may just need a reset again.
If you suspect that your boiler is broken, one of the easiest checks that you can carry out is to check if there is any water supply in your home by simply running a tap. If there is no water running then your boiler may be broken.
For those with a gas boiler, if you have other gas-run appliances in your home, such as a stove, you can check to see if they are working. If the gas stopcock is switched on but there is now gas pulling through, then this will mean that there is a gas supply problem.
If you think your boiler is broken, checking the pressure gauge is always a good idea. When checking, you should take a look at the manual to see the correct pressure for your boiler. If the pressure is at the right level, then you may have a gas supply problem, which is when you should call a Gas Safe engineer to come and take a look.
If your boiler is running fine and fires up properly but your radiators don’t seem to be heating up then you can try bleeding them. Air can become trapped in radiators which are very common and bleeding them allows the trapped air to escape. This is possible to do by yourself and won’t need the assistance of a professional heating engineer. When bleeding your radiators, always ensure that your heating is switched off before as hot water could spray out.
Most modern boilers will contain a digital display pad where you can check to see if there are any error codes displaying if you suspect that your boiler is broken. Each boiler will have different error codes, usually displaying letters so you should always refer to the boiler manual.
Boiler Repair FAQ’s
In this situation, our gas safe registered engineers will address the issue and walk you through why the boiler cannot be repaired and then will offer you some other options. When a repair cannot be carried out, then a new boiler may be required. Check out our boiler installation service.
The cost of a boiler repair will be dependent on the extent of the damage and the repair needed to fix that damage.

The most effective way to avoid encountering boiler issues and needing to pay for a boiler repair is by having an annual boiler service to be carried out by a gas-safe registered engineer. Having an annual boil service will ensure that your boiler is running efficiently and to see if there are any potential harmful leaks.
If your boiler is between 10-15 years old and you encounter damage, then it can be quite expensive as spare parts are getting harder to come by. In these cases, a new boiler is a sensible investment as new boilers today are A-rated for energy efficiency and the risk of encountering any issues is very minimal.
The length of time a boiler repair service takes will be dependent on the type of repair needed for your boiler. For a simple replacement of a single part, the job can be carried out on average within one hour or two hours, however, a more complex repair that requires more parts could take up to a whole day or even more.
It is best to contact our team either by calling or by filling out an online contact form to receive a free no-obligation quote and estimate for your boiler.

Unsurprisingly, a broken boiler can be very inconvenient and can leave you without any hot water or heating in your home or office premises. However, a broken boiler also has the potential to become a harmful health risk as a broken boiler if left unchecked, could cause monoxide poisoning, fires or even explosions.
If you do happen to suspect a gas or carbon monoxide leak from your boiler, open all the doors and windows in your home and switch off your gas supply located at the meter immediately. You should not use any kind of naked flame, electrical switches or any other ignition sources in your home or office.
