How to fix boiler problems at home?

Most of the boilers develop problems as they age. Boilers are generally well built and can last a lifetime but it is common for them to develop faults. During the initial years, you won’t notice any problems with the boiler but when used for a long time, faults become frequent. It is a well-known fact that boiler repairs can be expensive and complicated. You need to hire a trusted and reliable company to service your boiler problems or else you will be losing money. Before calling a heating engineer, you can try to fix the problems yourself at home. Here are some of the easy DIY tips to fix your boiler.


Adjust the pressure


Water pressure plays a crucial role in the performance of the boiler. If the pressure falls below the required threshold limit, then your boiler will become faulty. First, check the water pressure on the indicator which is located on the front side of the system. If the reading is less than one, then the pressure is very low. Pressure needs to be topped up to make the boiler work efficiently. Switch off the boiler and attached the hose to valves and open it. The water from the supply will start flowing into the system. Wait till the pressure reaches 1.5 and then close the valve. Make sure it is right and switch on the boiler. This is a simple step can be done at home easily as there are no tools required.


Reset it


If the boiler stopped working all of a sudden and you have no clue why then one simple solution is to reset the system. Though it is highly recommended not to reset without professional assistance, it is worth the try. Resetting the system will help solve the problem if it is minor in nature. If it’s a complicated problem then resetting will not do any harm or good. Refer your official manual before planning to reset. You need to spot the reset button and press it for 10 seconds. This will reset the system and there is a high probability that it might start working again. If resetting doesn’t help you need to call a Middlesbrough boiler engineer.


Bleed radiators


The boiler might be working well but there could be a problem with the radiators. One of the most frequently reported a problem is the radiator is not heating up. If one or more of your radiators doesn’t heat up, there is no need to worry. This could be due to air build-up which blocks the free flow of water. This can be easily solved by the process of bleeding. Radiators which are cold at the top are potential candidates for bleeding. Turn off the central heating system and allow the radiator to cool off. Insert the radiator key to the valve and turn it in a counter-clockwise direction. This will release all the blocked air. Once done do adjust the pressure level to ensure proper function of the boiler.

Though the above-mentioned DIY hacks can save you money, it requires a lot of time and effort. If done wrongly it might cost you more.
