Have you found yourself in need of emergency boiler repair in Leicester? With the warmer weather that we’re having, a boiler breakdown might be the last thing on your mind, but, when it does happen and you’re left with no heating or hot water, it’s easy to panic. So, what can you do?
Firstly take a look at the water pressure level on your boiler, it might be as simple as your boiler pressure has dropped too low – if that’s the case you might be able to fix it yourself by repressurising the system. If, however, you’re a bit nervous about doing this, or it’s not solving the problem, then it’s time to call in some assistance, after all, having no heating or hot water is no fun, whatever the time of year.
Boiler breakdown – what next?
A boiler breakdown in Leicester is considered to be a plumbing emergency, so it’s a good idea to call out a Gas Safe registered engineer. Common boiler problems which might constitute a boiler emergency include the following, in addition to the loss of heating and hot water:
- Pilot light keeps going out
- Drips and leaks
- Boiler is making unusual noises
- Low pressure that can’t be resolved
- Thermostat problems
- Boiler keeps switching off
But, before you pick the first plumber you find who can carry out emergency boiler repair in Leicester, there are a few checks you should make beforehand, to ensure the problem will be resolved safely, efficiently and effectively.
Start by asking friends and family if they have anyone they can recommend to come and fix the problem. Remember, it’s vital that anyone who you employ to come and carry out emergency boiler repair is Gas Safe registered, this is not only a legal requirement, but your guarantee that they are qualified to work safely on your boiler, too.
