One of the most important items in your home is your boiler. If the boiler goes then you will be without heat and without hot water. The boiler works by using natural gas to heat up water that is stored in your water tank in the airing cupboard. This hot water is for washing and it also goes into the radiators to warm the house. However, wherever you are, Gloucester Boilers, Swindon boilers, Cheltenham Boilers and Tewkesbury Boilers all need some love and attention. What they really need is a yearly service.

There are many things that can go wrong with a boiler and the service will ensure that you do not have any of the following issues.

  1. If you do not have hot water then it could be problems with the airlocks or that the water pressure is too low and not enough is entering into the system.
  2. Leaks and drips. This could be that water is getting through a worn seal.
  3. The boiler makes an odd gurgling noise. This is usually due to excess air in the system.
  4. The strange kettling sound. This is due to a build up of limestone in the pipes. If you live in a hard water area this can be a real issue. The service will clean it out.

Do not worry, there are many safety and cut off features fitted into the boiler to prevent disaster.
