Your boiler, just like any other appliance in your home, needs regular maintenance. A quick check once a month will only take a few minutes of your time, and could save you hundreds, if not thousands, over time. When you need emergency boiler repair, it means your boiler has already broken down, and there is most likely already water damage in your house. At the very least, this will involve a considerable amount of work on your part cleaning up the mess, and you will have to pay a boiler breakdown repair service to fix the broken boiler. There will be considerable disruption and cost. A regular monthly check on your boiler and the connecting pipes could save you all this trouble.
You may be thinking that you are not a qualified plumber, and therefore you have no idea what to look for when doing a regular check of a boiler. The good news is, you don’t have to be a plumber to spot the more obvious danger signs, and as soon as you find a potential problem, all you have to do is call a local boiler repair service and they will take it from there.
Not all boiler problems involve water. If you are aware of a strange odour near your boiler, it could be a gas leak. This is potentially a very dangerous situation and it should be dealt with immediately. The most obvious problem signs around a boiler is water leakage. There should never be water leaking anywhere around your boiler, and signs of water near your boiler should raise a large red flag. Another sign that things are not quite right with your boiler could be strange noises. Any unusual noise coming from your boiler should be investigated immediately.
Other signs that there could be a problem include your boiler taking a long time to heat up. If your radiators stay relatively cold and never quite heat up as much as they used to, this is another sign that your boiler needs attention. Check the colour of the flame on your boiler, it should be blue, but if it is yellow, have it seen to immediately, for this could be an indication that carbon monoxide is present. Carbon monoxide can kill, and you won’t know it’s happening until it’s too late!
