Look out for these common signs that might call for boiler repair

Better to catch things early than end up with all the extra costs for emergency boiler repairs and breakdowns. Here are some warning signs to watch out for:

  • Unusual Noises: Banging, whistling, or gurgling sounds can signify air trapped in the system, kettling due to limescale build-up, or an imminent pump failure.
  • Water Leaks: Any sign of water leaking around the boiler suggests that an internal component is malfunctioning and requires immediate attention.
  • Erratic Heating: If your radiator is not heating up properly or the heat is sudden, it could be a sign that something is wrong inside your boiler.
  • Pressure Problems: If your boiler has little to no pressure, it might spell out poor circulation. If it has too much, the pressure relief valve is malfunctioning. Both scenarios warrant a professional assessment from a Gas Safe registered engineer.
  • Pilot Light Issues: The pilot light should be steady and blue. If it’s flickering, keeps going out, or has turned yellow, something is not right. It’s one of the most common boiler mood swings, but it still needs fixing.

If any of these sounds familiar, you should instantly contact a technician that offers excellent service and spare your home and property from any safety risks.

Save Money on Boiler Repairs with Rowlen's Annual Maintenance

Rather than keeping your toes up for the next boiler breakdown to happen, the most cost-effective solution in avoiding costly emergency repairs on your system boilers and keeping your Croydon property safe and warm is to schedule for annual boiler services.

Here’s what you can expect during your regular boiler checks done by our fully qualified and experienced team of heating engineers in Rowlen:

Visual Inspection

Your boiler and its surrounding areas will be carefully checked for a visual inspection. Our Gas Safe registered engineers and technicians will check for any signs of gas leaks, corrosion, or damage that could affect the boiler’s overall performance.

Checking Boiler Controls and Components

If the surrounding area looks good, the boiler’s controls and components will be checked next to make sure every part is functioning correctly.

Cleaning and Maintenance

They will then clean the essential boiler parts to remove any debris or build-up that could cause emergency breakdowns or reduce the efficient performance of conventional boilers, gas boiler, or combi boilers.

An annual service ensures that your central heating system is properly running and performing its fucntions. Once the servicing session is complete, we’ll schedule your boiler for a reminder one month before the next regular service is due. You don’t even need to do a single thing!

Boiler Service FAQ

We hope you can find the answers to your questions below or call our friendly team on 020 8395 8616.

  • Do you provide emergency boiler services in Croydon?

    Yes, we understand the critical nature of boiler breakdowns, particularly during the cold seasons. Our boiler experts in Croydon is always ready to respond with a 24/7 emergency call-out service. Contact us anytime, and we’ll promptly send our experienced engineers to resolve whatever issues your boilers are facing.

  • How long does it take for regular boiler servicing to be completed?

    It sounds scary but it’s actually a really quick process! Every boiler service typically takes 45-60 minutes and includes venting your radiators as well as a CO2 assessment. This ensures that you’re safe and there are no toxic gas leaks that may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

    However, a comprehensive service and some additional boiler repairs may be performed if the technician discovers an issue that needs immediate attention.

    Carrying out a boiler service provides the opportunity to check for any potential problems, allowing repairs to be completed instead of facing an untimely boiler breakdown.

  • How often should I get my boiler serviced?

    If your boiler is making unusual noises, such as banging or whistling; if you notice a decrease in heating efficiency; if there are leaks; or if the pressure drops frequently, it’s time for maintenance.

    However, it is more practical to stick to your regular annual service to avoid the previously mentioned issues.

  • Can I perform any maintenance tasks myself?

    Yes, you can perform simple tasks such as checking the pressure, bleeding radiators, and ensuring the surrounding areas of the boiler is clear. However, more technical tasks should be left to a professional and qualified technician to avoid any safety risks.

  • What should I do if my boiler breaks down?

    If your boiler breaks down, check the thermostat and pressure first. If these are not the issues, contact Rowlen to accurately diagnose and fix the problem.

  • What is the expected lifespan of a boiler, and how does maintenance impact this?

    The average lifespan of a boiler is around 10-15 years. Regular maintenance can significantly extend this lifespan by ensuring the boiler operates efficiently and by preventing wear and tear.

  • What are the risks of neglecting boiler maintenance?

    Boiler maintenance offer many benefits but neglecting it can lead to even more problems such as failure of operating safely, decreased efficiency, higher energy bills, potential carbon monoxide leaks, and the increased likelihood of costly breakdowns and repairs.

  • How does an annual boiler service help me save money?

    Regular checkups for your property’s heating system optimize its performance, saving you from extra costs of frequent boiler repairs or replacement. Annual servicing extends your boiler’s lifespan, preventing sudden breakdowns and costly repairs. A healthy and well-maintained boiler system also consumes less energy compared to a central heating system that does not undergo any routine maintenance.

    Although the initial expense of servicing may seem scary, understanding its benefits makes it a worthwhile investment. Regular servicing in Croydon maintains efficiency, prolongs lifespan, and ensures safety, providing peace of mind. Factor the cost of annual boiler service into your budget—it’s an investment in comfort, safety, and efficiency. Prevention is not only better but often cheaper than cure.

  • Is boiler maintenance covered by homeowners insurance?

    This depends on your specific policy. Some insurance policies may cover boiler repairs or replacement if it breaks down due to a manufacturing fault or wear and tear, but not all include annual maintenance checks. Contact your policy service provider to learn more.

  • Does Rowlen also offer boiler installation?
