Signs of a broken boiler

Aside from discovering a lack of heat or hot water in your home, there are a few other frequent boiler issues to keep an eye out for, including:

- There are unsual sounds coming from your boiler

- The pilot light is orange

- There is loss of pressure

- There are signs of leaks 

What you need to check before calling a heating engineer

Is there power?

Check to see if your boiler is on by looking at the display and ensuring that it is on and the timing are correct. There could be a possibility that your boiler  may have been reset due to a power outage. If your boiler isn't working, try resetting it according to the manual's directions.

Check your gas supply

Try checking the gas stove, is the easiest approach to see if you have a problem with your gas supply. After doing so, you still find additional issues, it could mean that there is a problem with your gas supply rather than your boiler. 


Check to verify whether your thermostat is set to a temperature higher than room temperature. Alternatively, if your heating is controlled by a timer, double-check that the thermostat is set to the correct time.
