Boiler repairs

Boilers that are over ten years old are likely to waste a lot of valuable energy.
Whatever the type of boiler your household has, our team of experts can quickly diagnose and repair it using quality components and parts. All work is covered by our parts and labour guarantee.

Boiler servicing

Annual boiler servicing is a wise precaution, and Property Safety can ensure that your current system is operating to its peak performance. We can ensure against Carbon Monoxide leaks and prolong the boilers’ lifespan. Regular maintenance can also help prevent system breakdowns, which could otherwise prove very expensive to fix. 

Central heating and repairsCentral heating and repairs

  • Do you have a temperamental heating system?
  • Hot water in the header tank?
  • Does it make unusual noises?
  • Do you have cold radiators, or need to continually bleed them?

Our experts can help.
These problems don't necessarily mean a whole new system is required. There are many reasons for any central heating system to degrade and we will advise on the best way to get your heating back to its maximum potential quickly.

 

Gas Safe™ Register

Property Safety take gas safety seriously. All of our engineers are on the Gas Safe Register and carry official identity cards for you to check.

Gas Safe™ Register is the official gas safety organisation in Great Britain. It replaced CORGI on 1st April 2009. Gas Safe Register is responsible for the registration and regulation of gas engineers. Membership is mandatory for any company or engineer working with gas appliances. If you would like to find out more about Gas Safe Register you can call 0800 408 5500 or visit the Gas Safe Register website.

Can you smell gas?

Feeling ill? Suffering headaches, nausea and dizziness?
Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas boilers, cookers and fires can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.

In a gas emergency act quickly and take the following safety steps:

  • Get fresh air immediately. Open all doors and windows to ventilate the room
  • Switch off the appliance and do not use it again until it has been checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer
  • Turn off the gas supply at the mains
  • Call the National Gas Emergency number (see below)
  • If you are feeling ill visit your GP or the hospital immediately and tell them that your symptoms may be related to carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Contact a Gas Safe registered engineer to check and fix the appliance.

National Gas Emergency number: 0800 111 999.

Safety

At Property Safety your safety is paramount. If your appliances show any of the symptoms below you should call us immediately:

Boilers

  • Flames appear irregular or yellow
  • Smell of fumes or gas - turn off gas at the gas meter and contact Gas Emergency
  • Stains or smoke marks around the appliance
  • Overheating - temperature gauge goes above 80 degrees centigrade
  • Pressure drops rapidly - boiler needs refilling more than once a month
  • Fan whines loudly or screeches
  • Pilot goes out repeatedly
  • Poor hot water
  • Radiators don't all heat up at the same time - possibly a boiler fault, or it is equally possible that the system is unbalanced (please refer to central heating)

Fires

  • Flames appear irregular or yellow -(flame effect fires require particular attention)
  • Smell of fumes or gas - turn off gas at the gas meter and contact Gas Emergency
  • Damaged coals or radiants
  • Stains or smoke marks around the fire
  • Failure to ignite on first light
  • Pilot goes out repeatedly or fails to light easily

Cookers

  • Flames appear irregular or yellow
  • Flames appear to lift off the burner or a roaring sound is heard.
  • Smell of fumes or gas - turn off gas at the gas meter and contact Gas Emergency
  • Flame from burner is uncontrollable
  • Stains or smoke marks around the oven door
  • Failure to ignite on first light
  • Pilot goes out repeatedly or fails to light easily

Gas Safety Inspections and Landlord Gas Safety Certificates

Plumbing and Gas Services take gas safety seriously and all of our Gas Safe™ Registered engineers are qualified to undertake gas safety inspections.

In 1996, the government passed a law that requires all landlords renting either part or all of a property to have all household gas appliances and pipes checked every 12 months with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate. These must be kept for 2 years.

What does a Landlord / Homeowner Gas Safety Inspection include?

  • Check appliance for gas tightness
  • Check standing and working pressures if test points are available
  • Check burner pressure/gas rate against manufacturer’s guidelines
  • Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation
  • Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion
  • Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices
  • Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate)
  • Investigate any evidence on unsafe operation and report to the person responsible.

Boiler FAQ's

What is a condensing boiler?

This is a design of boiler which can have an increased efficiency over the more traditional boiler. A condensing boiler makes more of the energy it runs on by using heat normally expelled through the flue.

By converting over 87% of the fuel used (rather than just 50% in the case of some old boilers), a condensing boiler makes your fuel go further. Therefore, a condensing boiler can help to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint.

What is a combi boiler?

A boiler that is basically a water heater which can provide heating and hot water to your home.Combi is short for 'combination' and refers to the way this type of boiler system serves as both a central heating boiler and a hot water heater. That means there's no need for a water storage tank as hot water is provided on demand. As well as saving the space normally taken up by a water tank, a combi boiler saves on hot water costs as well as giving you hot water at mains pressure.

What is a combi boiler good for?

Combi boilersare ideal water heater systems for small houses or flats. They are economical to run and don’t take up much space, as they don’t require an external hot water tank. They are also one of the most straightforward boilers for a Gas Safe engineer to install.

What is a combi boiler not so good for?

You won’t be able to use hot water from many sources at the same time, and this choice is not ideal if your property has low water pressure.

What is a regular boiler?

Regular boilers are also known as Heat Only, Traditional or Conventional boilers and work similar to System boilers (see below) to store water in a Hot Water Cylinder. If you live in an older property and the boiler system hasn’t been updated, it is most likely that you have a Regular boiler installed.

This typically forms part of a conventional heating system, and is linked to a series of water tanks that feed the boiler and radiators. Storing hot water is key to this system, so unlike a combi, a plentiful supply of hot water is always available. Space in the loft and airing cupboard is required for tanks

What is a system boiler?

A system boiler is a boiler that is installed on a sealed central heating system, as the word suggests it is not open to atmospheric pressure and the system is kept with a sealed circuit.

Like a regular boiler system, this uses stored hot water. But because the water is pumped from the boiler straight to the radiators and hot water tank, it's a faster, more economical system. What's more, many of the components of the system are built in, making it easier, quicker and more affordable to install.
