How to know when to call a Boiler Engineer

Do you need to call a boiler engineer?

Think your boiler is faulty but not sure if you need to call an engineer?


Follow these simple steps first and afterwards you should be certain if you require any boiler servicing from us.


Step One - Check the power and controls. If you have no power at all, or the controls are turned off, that’s a clear sign that you are in need of a boiler repair or boiler servicing. 


Step Two - Check the reset button on your boiler. Most modern boilers come equipped with a reset button. They are usually located on the boiler’s display. This will be located near where the fault code is being displayed. See if the reset button has gone out or alternatively check if the pilot light is alight.


Step three - Check the pressure. For boilers that have pressure like combination or “Combi” boilers, the pressure needs to be around 1 to 1.5 bar. If you’d like to know how to repressurise a boiler, check out this handy tutorial link:
