  • Noises – most of us aren’t usually aware of our boilers other than the occasional low humming as it fires up for the heating. If you start to notice loud noises, whistling and bang sounds then you should arrange for an engineer to come out and look at your system.
  • Leaks – any dripping water from your heating system should be checked out. It could be as a result of condensation or there may be a valve or a seal that has perished and become damaged and is allowing water to leak out of the system.

  • Low heat – if your radiators aren’t heating up the way they used to you should first look at bleeding your radiators. If the heating issues still occur after this then there could be a wider issue with your boiler that needs to be investigated.
