SOME Boiler engineers can be expensive to call out, not to mention they are often hard to book during colder spells.
There are several things to look out for when you think your boiler isn’t functioning properly. If the heating or hot water won’t come on, that is a giveaway, but other things like low or high boiler pressure, or ticking or clanking noises could also mean your boiler maybe struggling to keep up with demand.
One good indicator is looking at the boiler flame – which should be a healthy blue. If it is yellow or orange then the boiler may not be getting enough gas, or conversely if it is getting too much gas, then this could be a more serious situation.
Check your bills to see your gas usage, if you think it is too high or if it’s higher than usual, then you may have a problem with your boiler.
Boiler servicing and cover
A good option is boiler cover, as this then allows you protection when something goes wrong, without costing a lot of money. With some cover plans you can get boiler service as part of the package, or at least cheaply, so you don’t have to worry if the time comes.
The cost of fixing a boiler can range from £150 for a small repair to several hundreds of pounds for larger scale fixes or replacement parts, so having your boiler serviced can help mitigate spiralling repair costs.
