Do I Need A New Boiler?
Boilers are complex pieces of engineering and are heavily relied upon on an almost daily basis. We have been providing new boilers in Bristol and Bath for many years and can are always on hand to answer any questions you may have about arranging a replacement. The inevitable fact is that over the years, constant use can result in faults some of which are repairable, some of which are not. There are a number of faults that could be signs that you need a new boiler. You should especially look out for
No blue flame/pilot light
A clear blue flame should always be showing as this indicates the complete combustion of gas. A yellow or orange coloured flame could mean that the gas used to heat your boiler is not fully burning and could be producing deadly carbon monoxide. If you are seeing this then you must call a qualified plumber immediately.
It takes a long time for the boiler to heat up
The heat exchanger unit in your boiler is pivotal to heating up your home. Over time this can become damaged or burned out resulting in inefficient heat transfer from the unit to the water which is then pumped around your heating system.
Boiler becoming noisy
Excessive clanging and banging is usually a sign of bad boiler health and can be attributed to a number of factors. A common occurrence is when a boiler’s heat exchanger is caked in limescale thus blocking the flow of water through the boiler. The banging noise heard in many faulty boilers is this trapped water expanding as it boils.
Fuel bills are increasing
If you have noticed a jump in your fuel bills even though household usage has remained fairly constant, it may be time to look into a new boiler. Over time boilers will function less efficiently and it will take more gas to achieve the necessary levels of heat. This is due to the gradual wear and tear of individual components inside the boiler.
What Is The Best Boiler For Me
Anyone looking for a new boiler in Bristol should be aware that there are many different kinds all suited to certain household sizes and usages. Our highly trained and experienced Gas Safe engineers will ascertain your requirements and will make a suitable recommendation. The main types of UK household boilers are:
Combi Boilers – This type of boiler is very common in UK households as they only produce hot water as and when is needed eg. turning on a tap or running a shower. This eliminates the need for large hot water storage tanks.
Conventional Boilers – Cold water is drawn from a tank, heated and then stored in a hot water tank ready for use. This model is very popular in big houses with multiple bathrooms where simultaneous usage is common.
System Boilers – Don’t require a storage tank as they take water directly from the mains. System boilers maintain a constant stream of hot water to multiple taps.
