A regular serviced Boiler can last up to 10 to 15 years. Whilst servicing your Boiler can increase its lifespan the older they get the less efficient they can become.
Heres some signs yours may be due a repair or Boiler Replacement.
Strange Noises: Your boiler heating up fades into the background noises until something’s not working properly. If you notice popping or hissing noises it could be a sign of a problem.
Pilot light keeps going out: There are a number of reasons your pilot light may go out and it is easy enough to reignite it however if it keeps going out it could mean there is a problem and you should contact a Gas Safe engineer to investigate.
Losing Pressure: If your boiler keeps losing pressure it could be due to a leak in your system or air seeping through a valve. It could be a simple problem your Gas Engineer can talk you through and will be able to provide you with more information once they have assessed the boiler.
No Heating or Hot Water: This definitely shouldn't be happening. If this is continuously happening it may be time to get your boiler assessed to see if you are due an upgrade.
