What Are The Most Common Issues That Cause Broken Central Heating?
We’ve seen it all, after decades of servicing South Wales and Bristol there is nothing that surprises us. Just some of our most commonly seen issues with central heating we’ve seen over the years include:
Air in Radiators
This is one of the most frequent central heating issues that we see. If you feel that your radiator is not heating up properly or has cold spots in patches, this could be down to the air that has been trapped inside the radiator. Fixing air in your radiators requires controlled bleeding of the air, from every affected radiator.
If you hear strange banging or clanging noises emitting from the central heating system pipes, this could indicate a leak somewhere along the line. Our team can detect and repair the leak efficiently and with little fuss or disruption to your daily schedule.
The Pilot light has gone out or is an odd colour
If you see that your pilot light in your boiler has either gone out or appears to be an unusual colour, this could mean that your stopcock is broken or working incorrectly. This issue is highly dangerous and requires immediate fixing, luckily we are highly experienced and qualified in boiler repairs.
If you can hear or see that your water tank is continually working, this could mean that your ball cock has become jammed so that the overflow does not know when to stop, causing an overflow. Issues with the pump itself can also cause this issue, which needs to be fixed quickly.
Low system pressure
If you notice that your boiler’s pressure has decreased or is behaving oddly, this could mean a number of issues, commonly a water leak or gas leak.
Repairing Your Central Heating In The Time Saves You Money
You should check your central heating before the cold really begins to set in. This is especially true if you are checking the system for an elderly relative or if you have younger children. We recommend running your central heating as summer ends to ensure any potential problems are flagged as quickly as possible.
This not only means you loved ones never have a cold home, which can be dangerous but also that the damage to the central heating system is reduced. This helps soften the blow to the bill when it comes to repairing your central heating, especially when the cost to replace a boiler can have serious financial strain if wholly unexpected.
