Common Boiler Problems that Call for Boiler Repairs

For homeowners relying on boilers for their heating needs, encountering boiler problems such as lack of hot water can be more than just a minor inconvenience. Rowlen offers fast boiler repairs Putney residents can rely on to address a boiler breakdown and cater emergency call-outs.

Situations that typically warrant emergency boiler repairs include:

Low Water Pressure

Experiencing low water pressure in your boiler? This issue could lead to insufficient heating throughout your home. Often caused by leaks or failing safety devices like the pressure relief valve, symptoms include a boiler struggling to heat up and radiators warming up slowly.

Radiators Not Heating

Cold radiators can be a significant problem, particularly during the chilly winter months. This could stem from trapped air in the system, a malfunctioning pump, or incorrect thermostat settings.

Unusual Boiler Noises

Strange noises like banging, whistling, or gurgling may indicate air in the system, limescale buildup, or an impending pump failure. Putney homeowners experiencing these should consider seeking emergency boiler repairs to address the issue promptly and prevent further damage.

Pilot Light Complications

A frequently extinguishing pilot light or one that burns with a yellow flame rather than blue could signify ventilation problems or a faulty thermocouple.

Boiler Leaks

Leaks from a boiler are primarily caused by high boiler pressure, faulty heat exchanger, loose joints, or high temperature, resulting not only to property damage but also corrosion of parts or worse, exposing electronics to the dangers of short circuit.

Frozen Condensate Pipes

In the cold snaps typical of Putney winters, condensate pipes may freeze, disrupting your boiler’s operation. This common problem requires immediate attention from a qualified engineer to prevent a complete system shutdown.

Thermostat Communication Issues

If your boiler is not responding to your thermostat, it could be due to misconfigured settings, a malfunctioning thermostat, or communication issues between the device and the boiler.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I do before the heating engineers come?

    For a smooth and hassle-free service, make sure the entry for the heating engineers is facilitated especially if you live in a building with restricted access.

    Before the engineer arrives, clear any obstructions around your boiler and secure pets or children away from the work area or the boiler rooms for safety purposes.

    If you suspect a gas leak, ventilate the area well without using electrical switches. Also, take into consideration that the engineer has unobstructed access to your home’s water and electrical supply.

    Most importantly, make sure someone is available to grant access to your home and have the warranty documents or service records ready for review. List any issues you’ve noticed with your system beforehand, including the make and model of your boiler, to assist in diagnostics.

    It is also important for you to think of any questions that you might have regarding the repair or maintenance of your boiler. Rest assured that all our engineers can provide you the necessary information that you need.

  • Can my boiler be repaired in one visit?

    With Rowlen, we take pride in delivering fast, reliable, and cost-effective results. While minor boiler repairs can often be completed within a single visit, more complex issues may require additional time.

    Our Gas Safe registered engineers come prepared with common boiler spares and aim to resolve most issues promptly. Our vans are stocked with an array of boiler spare parts, enabling us to perform a majority of domestic boiler repairs without delay.

    However, should your heating system require specialized parts, like a Vaillant boiler repair kit or Halstead boiler component, that are not available onhand, we will provide a fixed price upfront and schedule a follow-up repair.

  • Do you use original manufacturer parts for all the repair services?

    Yes, we prioritise using original parts for boiler repairs in Putney, ensuring quality and compatibility with the boiler manufacturer. If an original part isn’t available, we’ll source the best equivalent to keep your boiler running smoothly and working safely.

  • What happens if my boiler cannot be repaired?

    Rowlen will assess your boiler first. If the heating engineer finds it impossible for repair or if repairing your old boiler will cost you more, we will recommend replacing it with a new boiler.

    Don’t worry; we will guide you through selecting a new, energy-efficient boiler that suits your Putney property and provide a professional boiler installation service.

  • How can I prevent frequent boiler repairs in the future?

    An annual boiler service is the best preventative measure against frequent boiler issues. Regular servicing offers many benefits for safety and efficiency.

    Through regular boiler servicing, you can detect and address minor problems early on, maintaining your heating boiler’s efficiency. Getting your boiler regularly checked also helps you keep your family’s safety, especially from the horrors of unmonitored gas leaks that could cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Have your boiler serviced with Rowlen and experience peace of mind and hassle-free service.

  • Should I repair or replace my boiler?

    The decision to repair or replace your boiler hinges on factors like age, condition, and efficiency. While repairs might be a short-term solution, investing in a new central heating boiler might be more economical over time especially in dealing faulty old boilers.

    Our heating services in Putney can help determine the best course of action, and our heating engineers can perform both boiler installations and repairs that aim for the satisfaction of our customers.
