When your boiler breaks down it can be a real emergency – especially if you have no heating or hot water. It can also be a nightmare if you’re stuck trying to find someone reliable and professional to help you. Often you can end up getting messed about by people who either don’t turn up or charge a fortune. And when you do finally find an engineer, they might not even be able to fix your boiler.
The best thing to do in a situation like this is to call a trusted and experienced engineer who’ll be able to get your boiler back up and running in no time at all. Ideally, they’ll be able to come out and provide you with an emergency boiler repair Milton Keynes that will leave your home warm and comfortable again as soon as possible.
What constitutes an emergency boiler repair
Although you can consider your boiler to be an emergency if you have no heating or hot water at all, there are other issues that could also warrant an urgent call out. For example, if the boiler is making kettling noises (like a kettle whistles with boiling water), this can be an indicator of lime scale build up and deposits on the heat exchanger. Leaving this to worsen can eventually lead to your boiler exploding or developing a fault that requires a replacement part.
If your boiler is leaking water, this could be due to a faulty seal, valve or other internal component. In most cases, a qualified heating and boiler engineer should be able to diagnose the problem and recommend ways to prevent this from happening again in the future.
Another common issue with boilers is that they may start switching off without any warning. This can be caused by a number of things including air lock in the system, a broken diaphragm or a defective thermostat.
Other common problems include the pilot light not lighting or flickering on and off, an odour of gas or carbon monoxide detector displaying a high reading. These can all indicate that there is a fault with the boiler or gas supply and you need a gas safe engineer to visit your property and fix the problem.
