1. No Hot Water – Essentially, your boiler isn’t carrying out its job anytime this happens, and there are a few probable reasons.

  • An airlock or diaphragm is broken.
  • There is a low level of water.
  • There could be something wrong with the thermostat.

2. Your Boiler Is Leaking Or Dripping

Drips and leaks are a common indicator of a likely much more severe problem, but except if you are trained to do so you should not attempt to identify the problem for yourself. A lot of the reasons for the boiler to be having drips or leaks will most likely call for a trained boiler engineer to fix them. Leaks and drips are frequently brought on by a malfunctioning pump seal or pressure valve. After it’s repaired, you might need to turn down your boiler’s pressure, the boiler engineer will be able to advise you on this.

3. Strange Sounds Coming From Your Boiler

Possibly one of the most noticeable of all boiler situations is when your boiler begins to produce weird noises, for instance, banging or gurgling. It’s very likely that air is trapped inside the heating system is the problem, but it could additionally be because of low water pressure. However, the problem may also be more serious, such as the boiler getting to the end of its lifespan and you need a new boiler fitted.

4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit

The remedy for an unlit pilot light is simple, just relight it. However, right before trying that you need to take a look at the heating system to establish if there’s a much more dangerous problem first. Problems you may spot include:

  • A close by draft putting out the pilot light.
  • Build up close-by or around the {pilot}light which puts it out.
  • The supply of the gas might be prevented by a thermocouple that needs repair.

If you do find something that you think might be a problem then you need to speak with your local gas engineer to look into and if required fix before you try to relight the pilot light.

5. Low Pressure Boiler

A loss of pressure in the boiler may be an indicator of a problem with your heating system itself. You can check out the pressure of the boiler by taking a look at the gauge and making sure that it’s over 1. If it’s not, then there’s a problem someplace inside your heating system which really needs to get checked out by a trained gas engineer.

6. Problems With Your Thermostat

An inaccurate thermostat can easily cause many issues, so it’s very important to determine a regular schedule (at the very least once a quarter) to make sure that the thermostat is operating as it should. It’s a simple test. You simply begin by making sure the thermostat is in the correct position and has the right setting and that the boiler switches off when you reduce the temperature setting and then back on once more when you raise the temperature setting.
