Common Boiler and Radiator Faults and Failures
It’s easy to forget about your boiler, with it being tucked away in some nook or cranny in your home, but it’s the essential heart of your home’s heating and hot water supply.
Unfortunately, with it being “out of sight, out of mind”, many people tend to forget to schedule much needed maintenance at required intervals, or they’ll just keep pushing it further and further down their list of priorities since the boiler is still working… until it stops working one day, that is. This lack of maintenance is yet another common cause why many boilers eventually suffer from a breakdown, causing you to call an emergency boiler repair service.
However, just because it’s a cause doesn’t mean that it’s the only cause: boilers are complicated pieces of equipment with many intricate components and working parts, and just one breaking down or wearing out for one reason or another can render your entire boiler inoperable. They also have a set lifespan between ten to fifteen years, and as your boiler reaches old age, faults and failures will become a more common occurrence as its performance begins to decline.
Over the course of his careers, our emergency gas safe engineer has encountered and solved pretty much every problem you could think of – outside of the fantastical or bizarre, of course.
If you’re facing any problems like those detailed below, or if you think your boiler may be faulty because of another reason, don’t hesitate to call us at any time – we’re here to help you. Our emergency heating engineer is fully gas safe registered and offers out of hour boiler repairs and urgent boiler repairs.
Automatic Boiler Switch Off
If your boiler is regularly switching itself off, you should keep it switched off for safety’s sake until it can be assessed and repaired by one of our urgent gas engineers.
This is one of those pesky problems that could have many different causes – it could be that your thermostat has become faulty, that the water pressure inside of your boiler is too low, or perhaps it’s because there’s an obstruction or fault of some kind preventing water from flowing, such as trapped air.
If you experience this issue, contact us for a same day boiler repair or a one off boiler repair.
A boiler that can’t ignite is as useful as a freezer that can’t freeze – and if this happens in the colder months or at night when the temperature drops, this would be detrimental to your and your family’s comfort and perhaps even your and their health!
Be sure to check your boiler for any signs of a notification or warning, and remember to give your home’s fuse box a check to see if any safeguards have been tripped. If you can’t figure what the issue is, call our out of hours gas engineer for an emergency boiler call out.
Minerals, Air, and Debris:
Have you noticed that your radiators are slow to heat up? Are there strange, cold areas instead of the whole thing being piping hot throughout? Are some areas just lukewarm instead of being blisteringly hot? The culprit could very well be disruptive air leaking into the closed system from a degrading pipe or valve, or it could be that a gradual build-up of debris, minerals (such as limescale from hard water), and sludge is causing havoc inside by obstructing what should be hot, flowing water. Our emergency central heating engineer can deal with central heating radiator leak repairs and other gas central heating repairs.
Frozen or Cracked Condensate Pipe:
A by-product of your boiler is a type of acidic wastewater – this is subsequently flushed away into one of your drains. The specialised pipe that bridges your boiler and your drain is called the condensate pipe.
Unfortunately, as it’s more exposed to the elements than other boiler components, the pipe itself is capable of freezing during periods of low temperature. What’s worse is that the pipe itself can become damaged because of water and moisture freezing and then thawing, leading to cracks and breaks.
If there is a fault with your condensate pipe, your boiler should display a warning or a code to help you and our gas boiler engineers identify the issue very quickly. They can come out on short notice and do a 24 hour boiler repair in Stroud.
Your Home – Your safety
Is your home being flooded like from an old 2012-era disaster movie? Is your boiler making bangs, moans, and groans straight from an old horror film? Don’t panic.
Here is an important and helpful safety checklist of what you should do while waiting for our urgent boiler repair engineers or emergency call out plumbers to arrive.
- Check your other taps, fixtures, and toilets – is there any other leak that you missed?
- Turn off your boiler! If possible, keep your boiler switched off until the professionals arrive to restore it to tip-top condition.
- Shut off your home’s water supply at the mains – after quickly checking every other fixture or toilet, shut off the water at the mains or to those affected fixtures if possible.
- Shut off your home’s gas supply at the mains – for the sake of safety after switching off your boiler, turn off the gas at your home’s mains if possible.
- Photograph any useful or relevant pieces of information, such as boiler notifications, error codes, or breaks in your pipes, and send them to the local emergency plumber or engineer if at all possible – not only would this help your plumber or call out gas engineer, but they can also gather the correct tools and materials needed for the job. They could also guide you through courses of action you need to urgently take, such as shutting off your water or gas supplies at your home’s mains. Even a picture of your clogged toilet may be useful, so don’t hesitate!
Remember, these small acts of preparation will greatly reduce the time needed for our 24 hour emergency plumbers serving Stroud and emergency gas call out engineers to resolve your plumbing and boiler woes.
Do I need an Emergency Local Plumber or Engineer?
A cracked or burst pipe emergency is one of the most common emergencies we are often called out for, and they always run the risk of severely damaging your home’s structure and decor through water damage – the longer you leave it, the more damage is done, and the more it’ll cost you in repairs not just for your boiler but your personal effects, too. Worse still, if it’s your toilet or drain that’s flooding for one reason or another, your home will be contaminated with filthy wastewater that’d reek of utterly unmentionable things.
To top it all off, you may have to pay for hidden costs that wouldn’t immediately come to mind during the crisis, which could range from your water bill being higher, a loss of wages from not being able to work, or something as simple as your waterlogged groceries having to be chucked in the bin and later replaced.
You can contact us if you need an emergency plumbing repair service, day or night. We can carry out emergency pipe repairs if you need them.
How soon can a 247 emergency plumber arrive?
When you call us, we’ll give you an approximate time of our arrival over the phone, and depending on various factors like distance, traffic, and the need to gather the required tools and supplies for the task at hand, a normal response time from call-to-arrival is typically between thirty minutes to two hours. Our 24 hour call out plumber will get to you guaranteed for any 24 hour plumbing repairs you need.
Please note that while we aim to offer a 24/7, 365 days a year service as one of our core principles, there may be times when a plumber or engineer is not available.
Are emergency plumbers and engineers more expensive?
Since emergency plumbers and engineers are on-call 24/7, and because they’re available to work over holiday periods where others wouldn’t be taking calls, it’s only natural that their rates would be more costly – however, compared to fixing thousands in water damages or the replacement of household items ruined by water, or instead of just freezing in the dark, hiring a 24hr emergency plumber or engineer is not just the smartest move but a necessary one.
Depending on the time of day or night, and depending on whether it’s a holiday, the price of an emergency plumber or 24 hour boiler call out professional in Stroud can vary between £190 and £250 per call-out, with there being an increased charge if called around a major holiday such as Christmas or New Years Eve/Day. If you need a plumber in Stroud, call us.
