    Boiler repair or replacement - what do you need?

    Well, this can be a tricky question but we’ll help you get a clearer picture by focusing on a few factors that can be weighed out before the right decision is made.

    Things to consider when hiring a boiler repair expert in London

    Boiler warranty
    If your appliance is in warranty, it makes sense to get any issues with it looked at and fixed by a certified technician, as the boiler is practically quite new. In some cases, however, your water heating appliance can be rather old and problematic, but still in warranty (Bosch and Vaillant boilers come with up to 12-years guarantee). So, depending on the fault it has, a gas  engineer can recommend the right course of action.

    Pressure problems with your boiler
    Not everyone’s got the time, knowledge and experience to fix water pressure issues with their boiler. For instance, you can only try to follow our expert advice on how to repair a boiler that’s losing pressure, but there’s never a guarantee that you’ll succeed. In that case, you can resort to our boiler repair expertise, as pressure problems rarely call for a replacement.

    Minor repairs
    A qualified plumbing or certified gas technician can provide you with cost-effective repair solutions when you’ve encountered small issues with your heater. They can be fixed, so there’s no need for you to consider replacing your boiler, even if it’s been serving you for some years now.

    Issues with your heating system (radiators) 
    A certified technician can power flush your radiators if bleeding them, first, has not resolved your heating problem. Often, various hard particles accumulate in the system, which prevent your radiators from heating up properly.

    Reasons behind the need of a boiler replacement

    You have an old cast-iron boiler that leaks
    Cracks in old cast-iron boilers are simply not worth fixing! Consider getting a new modern boiler and dispose of your leaky water heating unit that will just keep causing you problems.

    Corrosion causes frequently the need for repairs
    The age of your boiler, combined with skipped annual inspections and servicing, can lead to corrosion buildup in the unit. Often, rust appears on the outside of its body walls, too. Naturally, it makes sense to replace your boiler in such a case, instead of spending your hard-earned cash on expensive repairs.

    Combustion issues
    If a Gas Safe Registered engineer determines that your boiler has poor combustion, he may advise you that it’s not worth the risk dealing with it, but you better replace your unit with a new one. You see, the problem can lead to fire risks or leaking lethal carbon monoxide gas. Watch out for signs, such as the pilot light keeps blowing out or there’s some soot on your boiler, and if present, call an expert straight away.

    You have an old and rather noisy boiler
    Strange noises coming from your boiler could mean that the pump or fan have become faulty. Just consider what’s more cost-effective -  to replace those or just get a new, more modern and efficient water heating appliance!

    Dangerous flue
    Replace your old boiler and the concealed and potentially dangerous flue with a modern appliance, which comes with a flue that has an inspection hatch, and thus, meets all gas safety standards. You’ll be most likely advised to do so during your annual boiler servicing.

    Your boiler is well out of warranty
    Old boilers, which are no longer in warranty, naturally break down more often. Add the lack of original parts, as well as the frequency of issues you have with the unit, and you’re faced with constant expenditures on repairs. Well, it’s time for a new boiler, isn’t it?

    Who repairs boilers?

    Depending on the type of fault your boiler has, the repair work may require specific expertise. No hot water or no heating issues involve working with gas, so only Gas engineers are allowed by law to perform any job.

    A heating engineer most often works only on heating systems, making him a specialist in this field, rather than a general plumbing expert.

    If you have problems with blocked pipes and leaks or you need an appliance that uses water to be installed, calling a plumber is the right decision. Many plumbers do possess several plumbing qualifications, and they could be Gas Safe registered too, but this qualification is not required when the problems are not gas related.

    My Plumber works with a team of well-trained and Gas Safe certified plumbers ready to solve any boiler and plumbing issue you may have.
