Boiler Turns Off
This can happen for a number of different reasons, including low water pressure, thermostat issues, or if you have a frozen condensate pipe, air in the system or a faulty pump.
Pilot Light Keeps Going Out
The most common reason for this happening is a faulty thermocouple, although it can also be caused by damaged seals.
Noisy Boiler or Noisy Central Heating
A noisy boiler is often caused by “Kettling”, which is a build up of limescale in the heat exchanger. Banging, gurgling, rumbling or whistling pipes can be caused by a build up of limescale or air in the system.
Thermostat Doesn’t Work Correctly
This could be caused by a faulty thermostat. Older thermostats tend to deteriorate over time, and can cause issues for your central heating system.
Boiler is Leaking or Dripping
There are a number of reasons why this may happen, from loose connections inside the boiler, to broken parts.
Boiler is Losing Pressure
If you have a pressurized system, you may notice that it keeps losing pressure. This could be caused by a water leak, or a problem with the expansion vessel.
A boiler is one of the most important appliances in the home, which is why you should keep an eye out for any of these common boiler problems.
