Storage Heater Repairs in Basingstoke

storage heater repairsit’s cold and bleak outside, so you turn up the heating considerably. But what’s that now? The radiators remain stone-cold. No matter what you try, the central heating boiler simply won’t turn on. Very annoying! How can that be? We list the most common causes for you and give you the ultimate solution.

Gas supply is out of order

Most central heating boilers run on gas. But if for some reason there is no gas supply, the boiler will naturally not kick on. Therefore, check the gas valve first. Is it fully open and does your cooker still work? If necessary, have a gas pressure measurement carried out by a central heating engineer.

Is there enough water pressure?

If the water pressure in your boiler is too low, it takes too much effort for the pump to pump hot water around. Check your boiler’s pressure gauge for this. The water pressure should always be between 1.5 and 2 bar. Is the water pressure lower? Then turn off the boiler, open all radiators, vent the radiators and top up your boiler with water. You will see that your boiler will then start.

Do you have electricity?

A central heating boiler simply runs on electricity, so check your meter box first. Did the fuse blow? Then also check the power supply to your boiler. Is the plug properly connected to the wall socket and is the cable still in good condition? Without power, your boiler will not switch on and you will never get hot water.

Is the air supply still OK?

Air supply and return is very important for a properly functioning central heating boiler. However, sometimes the air duct is blocked. Think, for example, of a bird’s nest. In that case, the boiler cannot get enough air in and out, so it will not switch on out of self-protection. Therefore, check whether the drain is clogged.

Faulty thermostat

The thermostat hanging in your room controls the temperature of your radiators. Your boiler will not switch on if the set temperature has already been reached or if the thermostat is broken. Many central heating boilers nowadays also have a wireless thermostat. This works on batteries. Replace it and see if the boiler now switches on.

Boiler broken

Is your central heating boiler not kicking on despite the above action points? Then chances are that a part of your boiler is broken. It could be anything: the heat exchanger, the three-way valve, the gas burner or the condenser. All very complicated. So you certainly won’t manage to fix it yourself.
