Types Of Boiler Repair
There are common Boiler faults which we regularly fix in Billericay. First of all the pressures checked. Boilers must run at a certain pressure to low, and it won’t run too much pressure can break pressure relief valves.
The pressures set correctly and observed if the pressure continues to fall, then there could be a leak in your boiler or the surrounding pipes, a blockage in the system or a faulty pressure valve. If your boiler keeps switching off, this could be down to incorrect pressure.
Next, we’ll remove the Boiler case and visually inspect the working parts. We’ll quickly establish if a leaks present usually caused by faulty seals or pressure valves which can be replaced quickly.
Leaks can occur in the pipework also due to poor fitting or corrosion. Faulty pipework and fittings are either refitted correctly or replaced. Always get a suspected leak seen to ASAP even if your Boiler still functions, it’s only a matter of time before the leak causes your boiler to fail. Leaks can short circuit your boiler, cause internal damage and also damage other areas of your home.
If there are no leaks present, you could have a blockage somewhere in your system. Over time debris and limescale (like what you find in your kettle) builds up in every central heating system, caused by internal corrosion within radiators.
A large piece of debris can block parts of your boiler, preventing the correct flow and pressure. Any blockages will be identified and removed by clearing or replacing the internal part where the blockage has occurred.
Loud and unusual noises prior to boiler breakdown are an indication that the heat exchangers blocked, causing the component to overheat and eventually fail. It’s always best to get your boiler inspected if you start hearing loud noises. Investigation and rectifying will prevent any damage from being done to your boiler when it eventually fails.
On discovery of severe sludge build up in the central heating system, we can carry out a Powerflush if you wish. A power flush will clear the whole system, so it runs and heats properly, saving you money on heating and boiler repair bills.
Other causes of unusual noises are excessive air in the system or a faulty boiler pump. Sometimes pumps reach the end of their life and fail or become blocked, we unblock, repair and replace pumps as necessary.
For a boiler to function correctly, the pilot light must be on. You might call us because your pilot light keeps going out. The first thing to check is the thermocouple a device that regulates the gas going into the boiler, making sure there’s the right amount to keep the boiler running.
Faulty thermocouples will continuously fail, so must be replaced. If the thermocouples in order, then there could be an issue with the gas supply. Your Billericay Gas Engineer will establish the cause of the problem and rectify it, so enough gas always gets to your boiler keeping it running.
Sometimes we attend a boiler breakdown and find the boiler in full working order an external element has caused it to fail. In winter we deal with many frozen condensate pipes. This pipe deals with the wastewater expelled from modern-day boilers when they are not insulated properly freezing conditions will cause them to freeze solid, preventing the flow of wastewater, stopping the boiler in its tracks.
We’ll defrost your pipe and apply the insulation, so it doesn’t happen again. Make sure any pipes in areas exposed to the cold are sufficiently insulated; this will help protect you from boiler failure.
Faulty thermostats can prevent a boiler from working, as they age they can become inaccurate and can fail. Replacing the thermostat will get your boiler working again.
Once your boiler is running, we’ll check your radiators to make sure they’re heating properly. Radiators that heat at the bottom only, likely have excessive air in the system, bleeding will remove the air allowing your radiators to heat up all over.
Radiators that heat only at the top or the top and middle are probably clogged with sludge. We can remove any sludge with power flushing if you want a fully clean and fully functioning central heating system.

Service Your Boiler Annually
The best way to prevent a boiler breakdown is to have your boiler serviced every year. Having no hot water or heating is always inconvenient and highly unpleasant during the colder months. A regular service guarantees your boiler runs smoothly and efficiently, so you get the most out of your energy spend. During a service, we can identify and rectify any faults minimising the risk of any failure in the future.
