Has your boiler broken or not working? Sometimes its difficult to know if a boiler needs a fix or replacing.

Modern boilers are considered to be resilient appliances and can provide heating and hot water to a home for years.

But, all boilers feature advanced technology and complicated processes, which means that a boiler can encounter problems from time to time. Here’s a list of the possible reasons why your boiler is broken or not functioning properly.

Reasons for a Broken Boiler

  1. Broken Diverter Valve

A diverter valve is used to control the flow of hot water in the heating system. It opens and closes to control the flow between your hot water and radiators. It’s designed to prioritise heating your hot water over your heating system.

A broken diverter valve is likely to cause your heating system to stop working properly. Here’s some signs to look out for if your diverter valve has become faulty:

  • The water is only hot when the heating is turned on.
  • The water temperature from all taps in the house can only reach luke warm temperatures


  1. Kettling

When hearing a rumbling sound or sound like a boiling kettle coming from your boiler can be quite alarming.

However, Kettling does not necessarily indicate a boiler is broken and can be easily rectified. A boiler begins to kettle when lime scale deposits build up on the heat exchanger. A heat exchanger is necessary to heat the hot water. So, when lime scale deposits heat as the water heats the salts become insoluble.

These insoluble deposits can restrict the flow of water and cause the heat exchanger to become too hot and steam. This and the heat exchanger expanding causes the kittling sound coming from your boiler.

The solutions for this problem are straight forward for your gas engineer. It can range from giving the system a flush to replacing the heat exchange or fitting a magnetic and electrolytic scale inhibitor.


  1. Airlocks

Airlocks in boiler systems are common and disrupt the flow of water within the internal plumbing system.

It will prevent the flow of water coming out of the affected tap and also cause all or some of your radiators to heat.

The good news is that airlocks can be fixed through DIY methods.

If your problem is no water coming through the taps then we recommend you try this DIY method:

  • fix a hose pipe to the hot and cold water taps.
  • Once they are sealed and secured on the taps, turn the cold water tap on.
  • The water flowing into the hot water tap will remove any airlock in the system.

If your problem is the radiators are not heating then we recommend you try bleeding the radiators:

  • You will need a radiator bleed key and a towel or old rag to mop up any drips from the valve.
  • Turn off your heating to avoid a lot of water gushing out.
  • Gently turn the key and open the valve until you hear a hissing sound.
  • Shut the valve when the hissing sound subsides this indicates water is coming back through the system.
  • Check the pressure on the boiler before turning the system back on. You may need to increase the pressure on the boiler after bleeding.


  1. Dripping or Leaking

Dripping or leaking can also result in your boiler system not working properly, or breaking down altogether. This can be caused by a range of issues with the boiler system. We have identified some common causes that can cause your boiler to leak or drip:

  • Pipe or part corrosion – Over time pipes, valves can corrode and weaken. It maybe that a particular pipe, valve or boiler part can be replaced. If the corrosion has spread too far and affects too many areas it might be time to think about replacing your boiler.
  • Joints loosen over time – As we’ve explained and mentioned previously in this article pipes can heat and cool. This causes pipes to expand when hot and contract when cooling. This process over time can cause joints to loosen and water to seap through any gaps.
  • Boiler pressure too high – If the pressure of your boiler is too high then your boiler could lead water. This is simply your boiler trying to relieve pressure. So, give your boiler some pressure relief and reduce until your guage meter is between 1 and 2. (Also, see point 8 below for more information on boiler pressure control.)
  • Pump seals have weakened – If your seals around your pump are not doing its job correctly then leaks will occur. Either the seals or pump will need replacing if the problem persists.
  • Poor boiler installation – If the boiler hasn’t been installed correctly and the pipes fitted securely then inevitably leaks and other issues will occur. Only get a gas safe engineer to install a boiler and inspect any issues.


  1. Boiler Pilot Light Gone Out

A common issue on gas boilers is that the boiler pilot light has gone out.

The pilot light is simply a flame that needs to ignite to deliver heat and hot water.

Gas boilers can be stored in cupboards or areas that are susceptible to drafts which can cause the flame to blow out.

It can be fixed by simply re-igntiting the flame. Depending on your boiler model will depend on what mechanism it has to re-ignite the flame.

If re-ingtiion of the flame does not work or it becomes a persistent problem then contact a gas safe engineer for closer inspection.


  1. Pipes Freezing

An issue you need to be prepared for in winter months.

Condensate pipes can freeze if they’re located outside. When this happens, it blocks the water inside as a consequence.

Fortunately, most modern boiler systems have special triggers that switch off the boiler when the water reaches a certain point to avoid any further damage to the boiler.

To prevent pipes from freezing, place thermal sleeves over the pipes particularly if they are accessible from the outside.

If you suspect your pipes have frozen you can pour warm water over the pipes until the frozen water has melted.


  1. Malfunctioning Boiler Thermostat

As is the case with many older boiler systems, the thermostat is usually one of the first components of a home’s heating system to break down and malfunction.

The older the thermostat gets the less efficient it becomes in giving a precise reading of the temperature of the boiler.

This may lead to the boiler system turning the heating off or on by itself, due to the thermostat’s misreading of the temperature levels of the home.

In this case, it would be best to invest in a new thermostat that’s probably more energy efficient.


  1. Pressure Build-up Or Loss

One of the main indicators of this problem is that the boiler starts making gurgling or banging noises, due to either a build-up of air in the system or low pressure.

If the pressure is too high your boiler wont’t be able to thoroughly heat the water. It will also put internal parts under pressure and cause leaks.

If the pressure is too low then it will result in low amounts of water running through your boiler. This will cause insufficient water to flow through the system and not produce enough hot water.

The lack of water can reduce the pressure through taps and showers and water or heating being luke warm.

It’s easy to check if your boiler pressure is too low or high by checking the pressure guage. They are located on the boiler and should read between 1 and 2 (although refer to your boiler make and model specifications for pressure guidelines).

If your boiler persistently experiences high or low pressure then contact a gas safe engineer to check any further underlying issues.

Broken Boiler

How to Prevent Your Boiler From Breaking Down

The best way to keep your boiler from breaking down unexpectedly is to keep it properly maintained all through the year.

You can do this by having your boiler system regularly checked and serviced by qualified boiler technicians.

This will ensure that your boiler is able to perform at optimum levels at all times and decrease the chances of it breaking down.

Having to replace parts and pay for fixes can be costly and it might come to stage where you have to think about is it worth fixing or getting a new boiler.

Don’t Get Boxed In To Boiler Deals

There’s a lot of noise in the market about different deals and options to replace your boiler. We want to help you cut through the clutter and get the best deal that’s right for you. We want it to be as hassle free as possible from choosing your boiler, the right payment plan to after installation service and customer care.

One aspect where consumers can get boxed in is that some boiler installers only provide boilers from one or two brands.

This means if they only provide Worcester Bosch boilers then their prerogative is to sell their boilers only.

Not taking anything away from the quality of Bosch boilers but we believe in ensuring the consumer has wider choice. This will make sure the customer can receive the right boiler that fits their budget, central heating system and home requirements.

Your boiler installation supplier should be in a position to educate the customers on all types and brands of boilers.


Taking Hassle Away From Finding the Best Deals

A boiler is a significant investment for any household and is likely to be the most expensive household appliance that you will need to purchase.

Replacing your boiler is a decision that should not be taken lightly. You should weigh up your options first to understand which boiler is right for you and your home. Then understanding what payment and finance options will ultimately ensure that you get the best deal for you.

At Hassle Free Boilers, we understand the headache this can cause, particularly at a time when your boiler needs urgent replacing.

Our sales and customer service team can help you decipher through all the clutter and provide you with advice on which boiler and finance option is best for you.

How Much Does A New Boiler Installation Cost

This can depend on the type of boiler, size, the warranty length and how complex the installation is likely to be.

We recommend that for a typical household buyer you set aside a budget of £1,500 to £3,500. But working with a company like Hassle Free Boilers can make sure that you can reduce the burden of a hefty upfront costs with flexible payment plans.

For a true hassle free experience our monthly plan provides manageable monthly payments with installation and service included so you can leave the worry of replacing, installing and looking after your boiler to us. See here for more information on how monthly plans work.

Which? magazine specialises in reviewing and testing many different brands and types of boilers found that paying a higher price doesn’t always mean a better boiler.

The best deal for you is the best boiler for your requirements and home.


What Type Of Boiler Is Best For You?

First of all you need to decide if you need a combi boiler, system boiler or heat only boiler. To give a quick overview:

  • A combi boiler is perfect for small flats and households.
  • A system boiler is great if you have low water pressure.
  • A heat only boiler is ideal if you have lots of space.


Should you install a Gas, Oil or LPG Boiler?

Most households are connected to the gas network and therefore require installing a gas boiler.

There are other options such as liquid petroleum gas, oil or wood burning fitted boiler.

The difference between oil and gas boilers is that your home central heating relies on heating oil. The oil is stored in a tank and relies on periodic oil delivery to keep the tank levels replenished.

Boiler Efficiency is a Key Factor in Your Boiler Deal

According to the Energy Saving Trust a gas central heating system can account for 60% of your homes CO2 emissions. Therefore, your choice of boiler will be a key factor for reducing your home energy bills.

Modern day boilers are up to as much as a third more efficient than old boilers. Particularly if you are swapping a non-condensing boiler with a condensing system.

Guidance on which boiler is the most efficient for your type of house and system will not only be key in your upfront costs but also your on-going costs for heating your home.

What are your Boiler Finance Options?

When it comes to replacing a boiler you have various options on how you can pay for a new one.

With the various options that are available it can become a headache. Particularly, when you also have to consider which type of boiler is right for you and who you need to install it.

At Hassle Free Boilers we provide a wide range of choice on boilers, services and finance options.

We do not believe in a one size fits all, we want to make sure each and every customer gets the right and best deal.

Below we highlight various payment and finance deals to help you make an informed decision.


Option 1 – Boiler Pay Monthly Service

Simply, this is a subscription that you agree with a company like Hassle Free Boilers to manage your boiler installation, service and repair for you. A hassle free way of letting a company look after your boiler headaches for you.

Why You Might Choose this Option

You may not want to pay a significant investment upfront to replace and install a new boiler. A pay monthly subscription or monthly rent scheme will cover the cost of a new boiler, installation, maintenance and service in easy to manage monthly payments.

How does it Work?

The subscription service has become very popular over the last few years. Afterall, many people are used to buying cars and other household items on monthly payments so why not boilers? You will receive:

  • a brand new A-rated boiler,
  • installation and servicing.

The service plan includes:

  • annual servicing, repairs,
  • unlimited call outs,
  • and a lifetime ‘fix’ or ‘replace’ boiler cover.
  • You’ll also get an annual gas safety check, which can prove very useful for Landlords.

Customers agree to:

  • a set monthly fee over 12 years.
  • Hassle Free Boilers running a credit check to make sure you are able to make the monthly repayments.

What type of boilers can I get?

Among the boilers on offer are leading A rated boilers from:

What is the cost?

Our most popular payment plan costs £39.99 and without a deposit.


Option 2 – Flexible Finance

There are a number of finance options on the market from interest free through to fixed APR interest rates. Therefore, it’s important to read the small print and calculate the exact repayment costs.

Why you might choose this option?

It might be that you prefer to own the boiler outright and also look after the boiler yourself. Finance options enable you to do this without having to buy a significant upfront cost.

How does this work?

You pay for the total cost of the boiler over a fixed period of time. Depending on the type of finance package you need to consider:

  • The total price of the boiler and installation cost
  • The length of the repayment period.
  • The amount of deposit that will need to be paid upfront
  • The total interest required to be repaid

Once the above has been taken into consideration you will be able to calculate what your monthly repayment will be.

Typically, finance deals will not include ongoing service, repair or maintenance of the boiler. This will be required to purchase separately either as a package or as individual services as and when you need them.

What is the cost?

Interest free deals can offer lower upfront costs but may have higher interest rates after an interest free period e.g. 12 months. Interest baring finance options may allow for longer term repayment options.

Option 3 – Buy The Boiler Outright

This requires much less explanation than the first two options as it is buying a boiler of your choice for its full price upfront.

However, there’s still plenty to consider when choosing a boiler from boiler type, size, brand, model and obviously what you are prepared to spend.

To help make your choice, take a glance at our boiler search tool to understand the different types and prices available on the market.

 Some Additional Things to Consider

Don’t underestimate the true cost of a new boiler

Most people don’t expect the average cost for a new boiler to be at least £2000.

These latest findings go to show that many people are unaware of the impact of purchasing a new boiler on their annual budget. A broken boiler could cost the same amount as a family holiday.

Often, people do not budget for this type of expense so many are left stranded with a choice of either no heating or paying over the odds for an emergency boiler installation. With hourly plumber rates in London reaching over £200, many families have to use their credit card or overdrafts.

In comparison to this, a Hassle Free Boiler subscription scheme requires no deposit, and you get installation of a brand new A-rated boiler, all for an affordable monthly fee.

A rated boilers energy efficiency

A new A-rated boiler will reduce your energy bills by approximately £30 per month. So, don’t put off your boiler replacement till winter or until it breaks. If your boiler is old, you’re most likely spending more than you need to on your water and heating bills. You could save up to £350 with an A-rated energy efficient boiler.

Payment options when I have bad credit

Don’t be put off monthly payment options if you have bad credit ratings. It is still worth shopping around and getting a quote. We will perform a soft credit check and our sales and customer service team could still find a payment solution to fit your credit rating.
