Signs which show your boiler needs repairing

Unusual sounds

Unusual clanking or banging noises from your boiler are a dead giveaway that something is wrong.

Not heating properly

The diminished ability to heat suggests an issue that requires quick care.

Frequent cycling

Regularly turning on and off boilers is inefficient and has to be repaired.

Pilot light issues

The functioning of your boiler may be hampered by a broken pilot light.

Strange Smells

Unusual scents, like a lingering burnt smell or a sulphurous smell, may be signs that something is wrong with your boiler. These odours can indicate a gas leak or issues with the combustion process. 

Since safety is the top priority, any odd smell should be investigated right away by a licenced heating engineer in Newcastle or Northumberland who can identify and resolve the problem.


Evident leaks surrounding your boiler or on the pipes that connect to it are unmistakable signs that something is wrong. Water damage, corrosion, and decreased efficiency can result from leaks. Finding and sealing the leak's source early on is essential to limiting more damage and preserving your boiler's peak efficiency.

Fluctuating Water Pressure

The efficiency of your boiler may be impacted by irregular water pressure. A malfunctioning expansion vessel, a leak in the water supply, or problems with the pressure relief valve could all be the cause of any variations in water pressure you observe. 

More serious issues later on can be avoided by routinely checking the water pressure and taking prompt corrective action in the event of any abnormalities.


Wear and tear is indicated by rust or corrosion on the boiler's exterior or in the pipes. The boiler's structural integrity may be jeopardised by corroded parts, which could result in inefficiencies and safety risks. 

Frequent checks for corrosion and rust can help identify problems early, enabling prompt repairs and halting more degradation. Our boiler services in Newcastle and Northumberland will find the corrosion and fix it. 

Higher energy bills

A decrease in the efficiency of your boiler may be the cause of an abrupt increase in your energy bills without any accompanying rise in usage. Energy usage rises when boilers that are older or broken have to work harder to generate the same amount of heat. Monitoring your energy bills regularly and taking care of any unexpected rises might help you quickly detect and fix boiler problems.

Old boiler

Boilers gradually lose efficiency with age and become more prone to problems. If the manufacturer's estimated lifespan for your boiler is being reached or beyond, it can be more economical to consider a replacement instead of making regular repairs. 

An expert engineer can evaluate your boiler's overall state and offer advice on whether replacement or repair is the more sensible course of action. Our boiler installers in Newcastle and Northumberland can be out to replace your boiler quickly. 

Uneven heating 

A symptom that your boiler is not dispersing heat evenly could be that some parts of your house are always warmer or colder than others. Possible causes for this include problems with the pump, radiator, or valves. 

Dealing with uneven heating as soon as possible can protect your boiler system from potential harm and guarantee that your entire space stays comfortably warm.

Should I repair or replace my boiler?

Choosing Boiler Repair

In some cases, repairing your boiler is the best choice. Here are situations where repair makes sense:

Minor Issues: If the problem is minor and the boiler is relatively new, repairs can be a cost-effective solution.

Limited Budget: If you're on a tight budget, repairing the boiler might be a temporary fix until you can invest in a replacement.

Choosing Boiler Replacement

Opting for a boiler replacement is advisable in the following scenarios:

Aging Boiler: If your boiler is nearing the end of its expected lifespan, it's wise to invest in a new, more efficient model.

Frequent Breakdowns: If your boiler requires frequent repairs, the cumulative cost and inconvenience may justify a replacement.

Energy Efficiency: Upgrading to a high-efficiency boiler can result in long-term energy savings and reduced environmental impact.
