Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my boiler making a lot of noise?
A noisy boiler is not a good sign and is likely an indicator that something isn’t quite right. ‘Kettling’ refers to the clunking and banging noises a boiler sometimes makes when lime scale builds up on the heat exchanger, causing the water to boil and expand – just like in a kettle. Kettling will cause significant damage to your boiler over time, so it’s best to get it looked at in order to extend its lifespan for as long as possible. One of our boiler specialists can get your boiler back in proper working order in no time – call us for help!
How often do I need to service my boiler?
It is recommended that you have your boiler serviced annually in order to keep it working safely and efficiently, just like you would your car. If it’s time that your boiler had a service, our boiler experts can help. Our services are fully comprehensive and take between 2-3 hours – call us to book an appointment.
Why is my radiator not heating up?
The most common cause for radiators failing to heat up is trapped air. You can tell this is the case if your radiator is hot at the bottom but cold at the top; in this case, you’ll need to bleed your radiators. The process is simple, simply use your radiator key to unscrew the bleed screw at the bottom of your radiator enough to cause a hissing sound. This is the sound of the trapped air escaping; once the noise stops, screw the bleed screw back in place. If this still doesn’t fix your radiator’s problem, one of our plumbers would be happy to assist you further – call us to book an appointment.
How do I know if I have a gas leak?
A gas leak can be incredibly dangerous to your health if undetected. Carbon monoxide caused by a faulty boiler is a ‘silent killer’, being completely odourless; installing a carbon monoxide detector will ensure you are alerted to any traces in your home. Old and damaged cookers can also cause gas leaks; the most tell-tale sign of this type of gas leak is the smell.
If you notice the smell of gas in your home, avoid lighting any sparks or matches, as this could cause a fire or small explosion. A gas leak will require the urgent attention of a trained professional. Expert Plumber can usually get a member of our team out to you within 4 hours.
What do I do if a water pipe bursts?
If a water pipe bursts in your home, you should immediately turn off your water supply by finding your stop cock and electricity in the affected room, as well as remove any furniture from the affected area to avoid damage. You should then contact an emergency plumber, such as ourselves, immediately.
