For example, spare parts don’t last forever, so there are many things that may need to be repaired over the life of your boiler.
Some common problems with central heating are:
- A boiler that switches off
- Faulty thermostat
- Radiators are not heated completely or with cold spots
- Freezing of pipes
- Heating works, but no hot water
- A gas boiler that is leaking or making loud noises
If you have any of these problems or have other problems with your boiler or central heating system, it is important to contact a registered Gas Safe heating engineer as soon as possible. While in most cases they can identify the problem and fix it quickly, gas can pose a serious safety risk, so you shouldn’t delay checking a worker by a professional.
A gas engineer has the necessary skills, qualifications, and experience to perform specialized work on gas central heating systems. Qualified heating engineers are also registered with Gas Safe, which means they have been tested and approved to perform all gas work in homes and businesses. In addition to repairing all boilers and central heating, a heating engineer can also install and maintain new boilers every year.
