Excelent customer service and efficient work. Areef managed to get a plumber to visit my residence in about 30 minutes for an emergency work, and kept me updated all the way through in regard to the service being done.

Boiler Repair London

There are four major types of boilers:

  1. Combination boiler:
    Combination or combi boilers are usually compact with 4-5 copper pipes connected at the bottom. It is not attached to any external pump or large hot water cylinder.
  2. System boiler:
    You can identify a system boiler by checking underneath. It usually comprises three copper pipes rather than the 5 in a combi. Besides, some also come with a hot water cylinder. You can see a pressure gauge at the front of the casing.
  3. Heat-only boiler:
    Also known as a regular boiler, it has three copper pipes. Two at the top and one at the bottom. This is usually with a hot water cylinder, a cold water storage tank, and an external pump.
  4. Back boiler:
    Using old back boilers is not allowed in the UK unless you update them. Back boilers are often installed at the back of a gas fire.

 

All the above boilers (excluding back boilers) are available in condensing and non-condensing variants.

Generally, all boilers installed in England are now condensing given their high efficiency and cost-friendliness.

Boilers hold extreme pressure, flammable gas and high temperature, making them unsafe for DIY diagnosis. We don’t recommend you attempt to do any work on your boiler. You can only legally service a boiler on your own if you’re trained, competent, and accredited by Gas Safe. If your gas boiler breaks down, make sure you reach out to a Gas Safe and accredited engineer.

Some work like re-pressurizing, resetting, bleeding air out from radiators, or changing thermostat batteries can be done by you. We would always recommend you call a professional plumbing and heating engineer instead of risking your safety. Most jobs need specialist tools, like a power flushing machine, radiator valves, or a thermal camera to view cold spots.

Call Fixcrowd to book a nearby boiler repair in London. You’ll need to arrange a gas-safe registered engineer when:

  • There is no heat at all
  • There is water leakage
  • Strange noises are coming from your boiler
  • The pilot light is off
  • The water pressure drops below the standard level
  • Radiators are not heating properly
  • There is sludge in the system
  • You can’t use your underfloor heating system

 

All gas appliances, including boilers, must be inspected at least once a year. You can flush a central heating system using two methods; power flush or clean each radiator individually.

A power flush is the fastest way to remove sludge and offer the best results.

Radiator cleaning is a time-consuming process. You’ll need to turn off the heating system, to avoid leaks or injury.

The costs of a radiator power flush can vary depending on the number of radiators, and the complexity of the model. Call the Fixcrowd team If you want to know how much a power flush or gas certificate will cost.

Gas Safety Certificate checks vary between £50 to £160 depending on the number of appliances you’re using. The engineer has to check your boiler for repair or replacement. The additional boiler servicing cost may add up to your main cost.

Get in touch with our team for the cost of the gas safety certificate today.

Boiler installations can be complex and depend on a few factors. Swapping a like-for-like combination boiler with another combi unit takes a Fixcrowd gas service engineer a few hours.

Installing a new boiler from scratch can take a day on average or two in some cases.

Fixcrowd can help you book same-day boiler repairs in London, including underfloor heating service, installation, and maintenance for residential, commercial and investment properties.

 

Landlords must provide gas safety certificates to their tenants every 12 months. You can book an urgent annual gas safety check today. Call us or book online for availability.

Note: Homeowners don’t have to renew their gas certificates annually unless they offer lodging services. However, we recommend you get your gas safety checks annually for personal and environmental safety. You can contact your local authorities for any compliance questions.

You also need a boiler installation certificate which ensures your boiler is clean and working.

If your heating system is working fine, you will only need a power flush every 5 to 6 years. This prevents damage to metallic components and flushes out sludge buildup and blockages.

Boiler repair can be classed as an emergency in certain situations. For instance, if the boiler is leaking gas or water, it can pose a severe safety risk to your home and family. In such cases, immediate boiler repair is necessary to prevent further damage or harm. If you suspect a gas leak or water damage, make sure to turn off the boiler and contact a professional boiler repair technician as soon as possible. A quick response is vital in emergency boiler repair situations.

Whether it is worth repairing a boiler depends on several factors, including the age and efficiency of the boiler, the cost of repair, and the frequency of previous repairs. If the boiler is relatively new and the repair cost is low, it might be worth repairing it. However, if the boiler is old and has required frequent repairs in the past, it may be more cost-effective to replace it with a newer, more efficient model. Before deciding, consult with a boiler repair expert to evaluate the condition of your boiler and determine the best course of action.

A boiler repair engineer is a qualified professional who specializes in diagnosing and fixing problems with boilers. Their primary responsibilities include inspecting boilers to identify issues, performing necessary repairs, and ensuring the safe and efficient operation of the system. Boiler repair engineers also conduct routine maintenance to prolong the life of the boiler and prevent future issues. They have extensive knowledge of boiler systems and components, allowing them to provide expert advice and guidance on boiler repair and maintenance.

Some common boiler issues to be aware of include:

  1. Strange noises: If your boiler is making unusual noises, such as banging, whistling, or gurgling sounds, it may indicate a problem that requires boiler repair.
  2. Leaks: A leaking boiler can lead to water damage and mold growth. If you notice any signs of leakage, contact a boiler repair technician immediately.
  3. Inconsistent heating: If your boiler is not providing consistent heat throughout your home, there could be an issue with the thermostat, radiators, or the boiler itself, necessitating boiler repair.
  4. Pilot light problems: A malfunctioning pilot light can cause the boiler to shut down. If you have difficulty relighting the pilot or it keeps going out, seek boiler repair assistance.
  5. Loss of pressure: If your boiler’s pressure is consistently low, it may be a sign of a leak or an issue with the pressure relief valve, both of which require boiler repair.

 

You may need boiler repairs if you notice any of the following signs:

  1. Your boiler is not heating your home adequately or evenly.
  2. The boiler is making strange noises or emitting odd smells.
  3. There is a visible leak or signs of water damage near the boiler.
  4. The boiler’s pressure is consistently low or fluctuating.
  5. The pilot light is frequently going out or difficult to ignite.

 

In any of these situations, it is essential to consult a boiler repair expert to diagnose and fix the issue promptly. Regular boiler maintenance can help prevent many of these problems, ensuring that your boiler operates efficiently and safely. It is recommended to schedule an annual boiler service with a qualified boiler repair engineer to inspect, clean, and maintain your boiler system. This proactive approach will help you identify potential issues early and minimize the need for boiler repairs in the long run.

Being aware of the common issues that can arise with boilers and knowing when to seek professional boiler repair assistance is crucial for maintaining the safety and efficiency of your home heating system. Regular boiler maintenance, coupled with timely boiler repairs when needed, can help prolong the life of your boiler and provide you with peace of mind. Keep the boiler repair engineer’s contact information handy and don’t hesitate to reach out to them if you notice any signs of trouble with your boiler.

Yes, plumbers are trained and qualified to fix boilers. They have the necessary expertise to diagnose and repair various boiler issues.

A broken boiler can be classified as an emergency repair, especially during colder months or when it significantly affects your daily activities, such as providing hot water or heating. It is recommended to contact a professional service promptly to assess the situation.
