Noisy boiler? – Find a good London boiler repair service

If you have an efficient boiler that is well maintained, it shouldn’t be making any noise. If it is, it is probably an indication that something is wrong. It may well mean that you need to find a plumber like CW Services Plumbing and Heating who offer a London boiler repair service

A noisy boiler may carry on working for a while. But in all likelihood, it is a sign that it is going to fail at some point in the not too distant future. The types of noises that boilers make vary quite a lot. To help, we are going to describe the most common ones and give you an indication of what could be causing them.

Banging and “clunking” noises

When you hear banging and clunking noises coming out of your boiler, it is an indication that there is a build-up of limestone on the boilers heat exchanger. The noises are referred to as “kettling” noises in the plumbing trade, and you need to take notice of them.

These noises occur because the build-up of limestone (sometimes referred to as fur) interferes with the flow of water. If not addressed and it is allowed to accumulate over time, it will create a blockage which causes the water to boil, steam and expand.

Modern boilers today are fitted with what are known as pressure relief valves. If steam is building up inside, the relief valve will let it out and thus stop the boiler from exploding. In the meantime, however, the efficiency of your boiler will be significantly impaired, causing further damage in the long run. You can, of course, prevent this by organising a London boiler repair with someone like CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

Whistling noises

Whistling noises can also be an indication of “kettling,” but they can also be caused by air becoming trapped in the water pipes. You can try and release any trapped air in a central heating system by bleeding the radiators. If the air is trapped inside the boiler, however, you will then have to have a London boiler repair carried out.

Gurgling type noises

If you have a gas-fired boiler, gurgling noises can be caused by trapped air. They can indicate a blockage or a build-up of sediment. It could also mean that your condensation pipe has become frozen. This can be cured by applying a hot water bottle, but you should only attempt to do so if you know what you are doing. If you don’t, organise that London boiler repair.

Call the top London boiler repair specialists – CW Services Plumbing and Heating

According to recent research, approximately one in every ten boilers are unsafe. So, if you do detect any noises, you should take action and book a London boiler repair. Don’t forget, however, if you have a gas-fired boiler; you must only use a Gas Safe registered plumber; someone like us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

We also offer a 24/7/365 emergency call-out service. Whether it is an emergency or not, all you have to do to book your London boiler repair is call us on 020 7733 6812 or 07949 095 184.

How to avoid a costly boiler repair in London

There are two ways in which you can avoid a costly boiler repair in London, or anywhere in the UK. The first one is to take out a regular maintenance contract with a local boiler repair specialist. The other way if you do have to have a boiler repair done is to choose a plumber like CW Services Plumbing and Heating. Someone who charges fair, competitive prices.

Thinking ahead

When your central heating is running smoothly, the last thing on your mind is getting it serviced or maintained. It’s very much a case of, “If ain’t broken, there’s no need to fix it.” However, this sort of thinking is very short-sighted. The fact of the matter is that having your boiler regularly serviced has many benefits. These benefits include:

  • Extending the lifespan of your boiler
  • Detecting any carbon monoxide emissions (if it is a gas fired boiler)
  • Preventing the need for costly boiler repairs

You should take-out a yearly maintenance plan with someone like CW Services Plumbing and Heating. This way a plumber will carry out servicing to detect potential problems before they worsen. This will help you to avoid what might otherwise lead to a costly boiler repair in London.

Managing your boiler repair costs

If you don’t have your boiler checked regularly, minor faults which don’t immediately affect performance will over time develop into major problems. You might think that by not having your boiler maintained or serviced that you are saving on costs. But if the boiler is developing an ever worsening fault you could be in trouble. The resultant repair cost might far outweigh the routine service cost.

When a boiler repair in London can be costly and inconvenient

The majority of boiler repairs are done on the spot. However, if your boiler is significantly old, the parts may not be readily available. They may have to be specially ordered. This could prove expensive. Also, the time delay could be very inconvenient as you will be without heating and hot water.

So what it all boils down to is that taking out an annual maintenance/service contract with say CW Services Plumbing and Heating could forestall a costly boiler repair in London. We service all types and makes of boilers and we are Gas Safe registered. It’s the perfect solution.

How to ensure a London Plumber doesn’t overcharge you

How can you make sure that the London plumber you use doesn’t overcharge you? It’s something that many people worry about but that few actually ask the question until it’s too late..

Plumbers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some do a great job for a fair price while others; how can we put it politely? – Oh yes – they try to extract the urine. Even worse; sometimes you might get a plumber who not only charges extravagantly high prices, but who also does poor quality work. There’s nothing more infuriating than paying someone for a bad job and then having to pay more to a good plumber to come and put it right.

We here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating have been plying an honest trade as a London plumber for many years now. We are pleased to say that our customers are always satisfied with the work we do for them; and we charge competitive prices too. So, here are a couple of tips on what you can do to try and make sure your plumber does not overcharges you.

Top tips of how to avoid being overcharged for plumbing work

Firstly, when you do call the London plumber of your choice in, ask them for an estimate before any work is carried out. It’s something we do for all our clients.

However, what we do is to give the customer the best case and worst case scenarios. Then at least they know the sort of ballpark they’re in.

Compare estimates

Another possibility for ensuring your London plumber doesn’t overcharge you is to get several estimates. Okay this might not be that easy in as much as you may not have the luxury of time if you have an emergency plumbing problem. However, you don’t have to get the plumber to visit your home. You always try phoning to them to get a clue as to how much the repair could cost you.

Going by recommendation

The best way of ensuring a London plumber doesn’t overcharge you is to get a recommendation from someone you know and trust. We here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating find that the majority of our work does indeed come from recommendations and this is something we are proud of.

There is one other thing you can do to find a London plumber who won’t rip you off, and that is to take a look at their websites for two things. Firstly, are they CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing Heating Engineering) registered? If they are you’re probably on to a winner.

The other thing is to check out is whether or not they are Gas Safe registered. Even though you might not have gas in your property, the fact a plumber is Gas Safe certificate speaks volumes for their quality of work.
