Frequently Asked Questions
Can any plumber fix my boiler?
No, only Gas Safe Registered plumbers are qualified to work on gas boilers. Search your postcode to find out if we have a Gas Safe plumber available in your area.
Why has the pressure dropped on my boiler?
The pressure drop in your boiler could be caused by a leak in the system, or from releasing air or water from a radiator when bleeding it. If your pressure has dropped you should look for leaks, stop using the system and call a Gas Registered engineer.
Why is the pressure too high on my boiler?
There could be many causes of high pressure on your boiler, below we’ve listed some of the most common reasons.
- If you’ve repressurised your boiler because the pressure was low, it may have been overestimated
- If there’s too much water in the system
- Parts within the boiler might be broken or not working correctly
- A leak in the pressure release valve (PRV)
Why don't I have any hot water?
There are a few common reasons that can affect hot water coming from your boiler. Below we’ve put a list of the most common questions, to have you troubleshoot the problem before calling a plumber.
Is there a problem with the power?
Check your fuse box to make sure a switch hasn’t tripped.
Is the pilot light on?
If not, try relighting it following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Is there a water pressure issue?
A typical boiler should be between 1 and 1.5 bar, if yours isn’t you can adjust it carefully following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Is the thermostat set high enough?
Depending on the type of boiler, it may need a higher temperature to switch on.
Is the timer correct?
Power cuts or accidental knocks can change the time setting on your boiler. Check that yours is still set to the current time and date.
Do you have a water tank or cylinder?
If so, the problem might lie with it and not the boiler. Check your settings are still showing as you would expect.
Does the boiler need to be reset?
Locate your reset button and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Is there a frozen pipe?
In cold weather, the condensation within the pipes may have frozen.
If you’ve tried all the above and still have no hot water, it’s time to call a Gas Safe registered plumber. Search our postcode to find your nearest Metro Plumb plumber.
