There are a few common problems that can occur with your boiler which would be more than enough to make you want to go out and get a new one. The first issue is the inability to start your boiler on a cold winter’s day. This is something that most people are unable to relate to but the fact of the matter is that your boiler needs to warm the water before it will actually begin to heat it. When it does not get this warm water supply from the mains, it will in turn cause your heating to kick off, thus causing the water to become extremely hot.
There are a number of different things that can cause the issue of not being able to start your boiler on a cold day to occur. The first is perhaps that the heating cables coming into the boiler may be faulty, therefore causing them to be unable to reach the hot part of the boiler. If they were to get to the heating element then they may simply break off making it impossible to ignite the fuel and fire it up.
Also, it is very important that the thermostat in your boiler is not letting you set the temperature to the levels you want it to and keeping it at those levels can cause a number of issues with your boiler. If you find that you are unable to get your boiler to warm the water before it begins to boil then you will need to get a new boiler or call a Boiler Repair Gloucester company such as HPR Services to come and help you.
The other issues that can occur with your boiler are ones that can be caused by the pipes that are actually clogged in the boiler itself. When this occurs, the water will actually begin to heat up inside the boiler and cause the problem.
