If you notice water leaking from your boiler unit, or from the pipes, it's important that you do not attempt any repairs yourself. It could be due to an internal part which came loose due to incorrect installation or corrosion, and should only be replaced by a qualified engineer.
No Heat or Hot Water
This is perhaps the most obvious sign that your boiler is having problems. This can be caused by several issues, such as a faulty thermostat or other broken parts. This can cause a major inconvenience in the colder winter season so it's important that you call us without delay.
No/Uneven Heat in the Radiator
If you don't notice any other symptoms, it's likely that there could be something wrong with the radiator itself, such as a build up of rust and sludge. Rather than repairing the boiler, you might only need to flush or bleed the problematic radiator.
Types of boilers
The three most common types of boilers you may find in the UK are combi boilers, regular heat-only gas boilers and system boilers. Each has its unique heating uses and specific benefits.
System boilers provide the space-saving of the combi boiler with the capacity of a conventional heat-only gas boiler. The boiler itself contains many of the external components found in traditional gas boiler heating systems.
System boilers can then provide hot water to multiple places in your home, as well as heating, without the need for a cold water tank in your loft. However, they are expensive to install and, like conventional gas boilers, will lose heat from the water when not used.
Conventional heat-only gas boiler systems can provide multiple tasks with hot water all at once. Unlike combi boilers, they have components external to the boiler itself, such as a water tank in the loft or a circulation pump.
In this type of gas boiler, a hot water coil or storage tank will store the water, so you will need to actively heat the water before using it, meaning a conventional gas boiler can not provide you with hot water as quickly as a combi boiler can.
Combi boilers are the most popular form of boiler in the UK. They provide hot water on demand, yet they are not the best boiler for all situations.
While a combi boiler is compact and neat, with no need for an expansion tank, it can only service one task at a time with hot water. Combi boilers also contain many parts, meaning more can go wrong.

Benefits of regular boiler servicing
When it comes to your boiler's health, prevention is the best form of defence.
