Boilers are something that should only be worked on by a Gas qualified professional. But if you want to know a little more about your boiler and its maintenance, here are some of the most frequent questions we are asked.
Most boiler manufacturers will recommend that you have your boiler serviced once a year. This helps to keep all the working parts in good order and spots potential problems that might lead to a breakdown at some point. You can have it done more often if you like but once a year is a good pattern to adopt.
A restart or lock out button is often located on the boiler burner unit. The front door will normally open and this is where the small control panel is located. If the boiler has ‘tripped’ or stopped working, this is often illuminated. The restart button will be there, and you can use it if you are confident in what you are doing. The booklet that comes with your boiler will give you more information.
This is often a sign of an air lock or that your boiler isn’t working properly. Air locks are bubbles of air in the system that stop the hot water flowing properly. Normally, your engineer will ‘bleed’ the radiator to remove the air and then it will work as normal.
No or low pressure is a sign that there is a problem with the boiler. Boilers usually run at around 1 Bar on that gauge. So if you notice it is higher or lower than this, call your engineer to get them to check it as soon as possible.
