Signs you need a boiler repair

Unless you’re a qualified gas engineer, it can be very difficult to see when something isn’t right with your boiler. Regular boiler servicing will help you find these issues before they cause irreversible damage. 

Here’s a list of common signs to look out for...

Not running as it used to 

An inefficient boiler may be indicated by a sudden spike in energy costs without a corresponding rise in usage. This could be the result of deposits building up in the system or wear and tear reducing efficiency. Your energy bills can be controlled with the help of timely repairs and routine maintenance.

Pilot light

Verify the pilot light's colour. It should ideally be a steady blue flame. A dangerous gas called carbon monoxide may be present if the flame is yellow or flickers. In such circumstances, immediately seek professional assistance and turn off the boiler.


Keep an eye out for any odd or unusual smells coming from your boiler. Particularly, a strong gas smell could point to a dangerous problem like a gas leak. You must leave the area as soon as you notice any of these smells and call emergency services.


Check for any rust or corrosion on your boiler. Leaks can occur from corroded pipes or other parts that affect the boiler's operation. It's critical to take quick action to stop further deterioration if you notice rust.


Water leaks that are visible around your boiler or pipes may be a direct sign of trouble. In addition to impairing your boiler's efficiency, leaks can cause water damage to your house. Leaks that go unnoticed could require more involved and expensive repairs.


Think about how old your boiler is. Boilers are more vulnerable to wear and malfunctions as they get older. It could be more economical to replace your boiler rather than make costly repairs if it is nearing or beyond its anticipated lifespan.

If you have noticed any of the above signs or anything else that makes you think you have a faulty boiler on your hands, please call us on the details below. Our heating engineers in Andover, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, and Southampton will be more than happy to help!
