 Emergency Boiler Repair Abbots Langley 

Should I bother servicing my boiler or repairing a boiler?

Abbotts Maintenance Boiler servicing & repair in Abbots Langley is essential since the colder climate requires frequent use of boilers during the winter months and sometimes, even during the summers. Using a faulty boiler is not only dangerous, but can significantly contribute to increased utility bills.

A boiler that is not functioning to standards specified by the manufacturer can cause gas leaks that are dangerous for both the occupant as well as neighbours. There is also the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be prevented by regular servicing of your boiler.

Why does a boiler need repair or servicing?

As with any other appliance, regular use of a boiler will lead to decreased efficiency and deterioration over a period of time. This occurs for two main reasons: as the boiler is used, excessive soot, which is a by-product of the combustion process, can coat the inside components of the boiler leading to reduced efficiency, and the air-to-fuel ratio, which needs to be maintained for optimum performance, changes over a period of time due to component wear and tear. Boiler repairs & servicing is particularly important, since the boiler is being used daily almost throughout the year.

Abbotts Maintenance entails a service that will come to your home, clean the soot from your boiler and ensure that the air-to-fuel ratio is readjusted to optimize efficient running of your appliance. This will prolong the life of your boiler and will reduce the risk of expensive repairs in the long run.

Another critical reason to carry out proper maintenance on your boiler, is to prevent exposure to carbon monoxide, which, when inhaled over a period of time can lead to illness and even death. Incomplete combustion of fuels such as oil or gas in infrequently serviced boilers can lead to the production of carbon monoxide.

This gas is odourless and colourless and therefore hard to detect. Regular servicing can alert you to the presence of carbon monoxide and help keep you and your family safe.

Who will service my boiler and what qualifications should I check for?

At Abbotts Maintenance Abbots Langley boiler repairs are carried out by a service engineer or technician who is specifically qualified to work on your particular type of boiler. All qualified service technicians should be Gas Safe Registered, all our engineers are. This is a certification that ensures that the engineer has been adequately trained to service your appliance from both a legal as well as a safety stand point.

Every Gas Safe registered engineer will have a Gas Safe identification card that will specify the company name and contact details, the engineers license number, whether he is qualified to work on domestic or commercial applications and his area of expertise – gas, LPG or oil boilers and other appliances.

There are several online services that allow you to check the credentials of the technician prior to permitting him to work on your boiler. Even though a registered technician might be more expensive, it is well worth the additional expense to ensure that the repair is carried out in a safe and professional manner, thereby preventing more problems in the future.

When and how often should I get my boiler serviced?

Abbotts Maintenance recommend servicing your boiler annually to ensure that it is running smoothly and to carry out any repairs that might be required in a timely manner.

By doing this potential problems can be detected early and repaired before they lead to bigger problems. It is recommended that regular servicing be carried out in the summer months, when boiler engineers are readily available so that the boiler is functioning well during the cold winter months when you will need to use it regularly.

Make sure you ask your technician for any safety tips; most technicians will also give you advice on how to maintain your boiler for superior performance and longevity.

What will the boiler engineer do when he arrives for the service?

The first task a technician will perform is a visual check to ensure that the running, fixing and positioning of the boiler complies with laws relating to installation, building codes, electrical, water and gas regulations laid out in the current legislation.

Next, the technician will fire up the unit to ensure that it is running properly and check for any faults before he opens the casing. Once the casing is opened, your service technician will check all the components of the boiler including the electrical parts, pipes, joints and interior surfaces for damage. He will also clean the inside surfaces of the boiler and readjust the air-to-fuel ratio to optimum values. If there are any faults, he will inform you of additional costs to repair or replace any parts.

Before replacing the boiler casing, he will carry out tests to ensure that there are no gas leaks. The entire process should take between 30-60 minutes, at the end of which you should receive a service report stating what checks and servicing the technician has performed.

Frequently Asked Pumbing & Heating Question

Emergency Plumbers & Boiler Repairs

Alternatively, if you want to detect a water leak in your home, you can check your water usage. If it has gone up significantly without reason, then this could be a leak. You can also take a meter reading and wait two hours ensuring not to use any water and take another meter reading. If your usage has increased, this indicates a leak.

Perhaps something most homes have encountered is the drip, drip, drip from a tap. This can happen for a variety of reasons such as general wear and tear, a build up of debris or when someone doesn’t turn the tap tight enough. It can even leak if someone over-tightens the valve as it can lead to damage to the washer in the tap. If you have a leaking tap, then it is wise to inspect the tap to determine the cause. Firstly, switch off the water supply through an isolator valve or the stopcock. Then if you feel comfortable to do so, open up the tap and inspect the washer. You may notice that it has a build-up of debris which you can clean away. Alternatively, the washer may have damage, and it is time for a replacement. Only replace the washer if you feel comfortable to do so. If you don’t, a competent handyman or plumber will be happy to assist.

Another common water leak is through a leaking radiator. A leaking radiator can cause significant damage to your floor, ceiling and even wiring, so it is vital to fix it right away. A water leak in the radiator could be from a number of different causes such as a leaking valve or valve spindle. Alternatively, it may be leaking because of corrosion or pipe coupling. Most of the fixes for a leaking radiator will require draining the system and refilling it. Furthermore, the components of a radiator are relatively fiddly and can be difficult to master. For a leak in the radiator, determine where you think the leak is coming from, then turn off your water supply and then it is usually best to call a plumber to resolve the issue for you.

If you spot a leak from a plastic/PVC water pipe joint, then the good news is that you may be able to fix the issue yourself. Remember, water can travel a long way before it drips as a leak, so you need to make sure you know exactly which joint the leak is coming from. Start by drying the area thoroughly and working out exactly where the water is coming from and whether it is the pipe or water pipe joint that is leaking. Once you know the source of the leak, turn off the water for the affected area, or turn off the water at the mains supply if that is easiest. Then get to work in fixing a leak. If you feel competent, remove and replace the affected section of the pipe. However, this may require cutting tools and equipment you may not have. Alternatively, you can make an easy temporary fix using rubber or silicone repair tape which is quick and easy to use. Repair epoxy can be even easier to use around plastic water pipe joint leaks, and it can mould to fit the shape of the joint.

If you have a leaking plastic water pipe, then the process is much the same as how to fix a leaking plastic water pipe joint. First make sure you know exactly where the leak is coming from, turn off the water supply and then either replace the affected water pipe or use a quick fix such as tape and epoxy. Alternatively, for a super quick fix, you can use a rubber and hose clamp to give you some time before you can call a plumber out to make the fix.

The problem If your heating system doesn’t have enough water, this fault can occur as its pressure could become low. The solution It is usually possible for you to fix this issue yourself by topping up your boiler’s water pressure to 1.5 using the in-built in filling loop. If you’re still facing issues, contact a Gas Safe registered engineer.

The problem This usually means that there has been a flame loss during operation. This issue could be caused by deeper system errors such as incorrect gas pressure, an issue with your flue, a faulty gas valve, an incorrect adjustment of a valve or a fan fault. The solution Firstly, check other gas appliances and you could try to reset your boiler. This fault typically occurs with older boilers and low-efficiency systems, so it may be worth considering getting a new boiler installed.

The problem This fault is caused by a loose or damaged fan. This issue could be related to deeper problems such as loose or damaged connections, water damage from a boiler leak, a fault with the air pressure switch or a problem with the printed circuit board. The solution This fault will require the help of a qualified engineer. As the issue can stem from a range of different causes, costs can vary.

The problem The F4 fault code tends to signify a problem with your boiler’s flow thermistor or an issue with its operation. The fault will typically be related to circulation issues. The solution This fault will require a call out to a Gas Safe registered engineer.

The problem This refers to a fault in the return thermistor or its operation. related to a faulty NTC return thermistor, a damaged connection, a differential in temperature that’s too high between the flow/return thermistors, or a faulty printed circuit board. The solution This fault will require a call out to a Gas Safe registered engineer.

The problem Your boiler takes resistance readings which are then sent to the printed circuit board and if the temperature reading is too low or too high, the boiler will cease to work as a safety precaution and display a fault code. The solution Reset your boiler. If this doesn’t help, you should then contact a qualified engineer. Overheating is generally an issue that happens with older, less efficient boilers, so it may be worth investing in a new heating system.

The problem Your boiler has ‘locked out’ as a safety precaution. The cause behind this will need to be identified. The solution Reset your boiler. If there’s rumbling coming from the system, this suggests your condensate pipe is blocked or that there is an issue with your flue. This requires a call out from a qualified engineer.

The problem This fault code typically indicates that someone has changed the printed circuit board (PCB) and used the wrong boiler chip card (BCC). The solution This requires a call out from a qualified engineer.

The problem Like L1, this code could indicate that the temperature on your resistance reading is too high. The solution Check your system’s pressure reading, you could also bleed your radiators to see if this helps. If not, we recommend contacting a Gas Safe registered engineers as the overheating could be a result of a deeper issue with your boiler’s pump or dry fire stat.

The problem Your boiler may have ‘locked out’ as a safety precaution. The cause of this will need to be addressed. The solution Check that other gas appliances in your home are working, if so, we recommend that you then reset your boiler. If your boiler is rumbling, there could be a blockage in your condensate pipe. Contact a qualified engineer to fix the issue.

The problem This could occur if someone may have reset the boiler 5 times in 15 minutes. The solution Turn off the boiler’s power at the fuse spur, then turn it back on again. If the issue continues, contact a qualified engineer.

The problem This usually happens when your flame comes on before your gas. The solution Reset your boiler. If the boiler still fails to operate and your system is still covered by your warranty, you could contact your manufacturer for assistance.
