Once the worst of winter is over, there’s the temptation to think that the heating system isn’t too much of a worry. You can leave it until later in the year and sort it out then. But if there are certain problems with your boiler, the question is will your boiler make it through next winter? Or even last the rest of this year?
Low pressure is one of the most common boiler problems and can cause a surprising amount of damage. It is also relatively easy for an engineer to deal with. Normally boilers should be around 1.1-1.5 bar. If your boiler is running higher or lower than this, it could be inefficient and even put pressure on the system that could lead to a breakdown.
Boilers do make noise as part of their normal operation. But if they start making different noises, strange sounds like a kettle boiling or rattling sounds, this can be a sign that there is something more serious wrong. A common reason for this is that there is a build up of sludge in the boiler that is causing problems, but it can also mean the boiler is coming towards the end of its lifespan.
Cold spots on the radiators can mean that you have an airlock in the system and can be easily dealt with. But if this doesn’t cure the problem then it might mean there’s something wrong with the boiler supplying the hot water. That sludge can cause lots of problems and mean water isn’t as hot or doesn’t circulate well.
