What does emergency boiler repair cover?

Emergency boiler repair is a service provided to resolve emergency boiler issues including, but not limited to:

  • Full boiler breakdowns- if your boiler is not working at all, with no heating and no hot water, and no response on the main hub, you should phone for urgent boiler repair. Especially in a property home to young children, vulnerable people or elderly people, for whom it is an essential priority for the boiler to be repaired in a timely, efficient way.
  • Extensive boiler leaks- if your boiler is leaking a lot of water, enough to damage your property, you should call a boiler repair team immediately for an urgent response. For small or minor leaks, you will still need to call a professional heating team to repair this, but with careful management, this wont need to be fixed as urgently.
  • Gas leaks- if you can smell gas or your carbon monoxide detector has discovered a leak, you need to get in touch with gas safe professionals as soon as possible for the safety of your property, and your household.

Which boiler problems are not an emergency?

Some boiler problems will certainly need repairing and maintenance carried out, but these will not need be treated as an emergency. These include:

  • Boiler thermostat issues
  • Broken pilot lights
  • Strange noises from the boiler
