Boiler Breakdown

There are a range of different components within your system and different situations that can cause your boiler to break down. There is also a range of methods that you can use to prevent system breakdowns and ensure maximum operating efficiency.  When your boiler breaks down, it’s usually best to call an engineer as soon as possible. This will help to minimise further harm being caused to your system. Here at Origin, our engineers are highly experienced in locating and repairing all types of common boiler issues. Here, we’ll take a look at the most common boiler issues and what to do if they happen.

Common Boiler Issues

No Heating or Hot Water

One of the most common and inconvenient boiler issues is having no heating or hot water. There can be many possible causes for this breakdown so it’s usually best to call out an engineer to find a solution.

Water Leakage 

A boiler leakage can be caused by a variety of issues and determining the cause can become tricky. It’s important to learn where the water is leaking from.  Usually, an internal component of the boiler such as a pressure valve is broken. However, sometimes a leak can come from the tank or pipes due to improper fitting or corrosion. When experiencing a boiler leakage it is important to call out an emergency plumber as soon as possible. This will prevent damage from being caused to your home and get your system repaired quickly and efficiently.

Boiler Cutting Out 

Your Boiler may turn on just fine, but cut out during operation. This is usually caused by irregular pressure. Start by checking your pressure gauge, if this is fine then bleeding your radiators can help to alleviate pressure. Always call an engineer if you are unsure.

Low Boiler Pressure 

A boiler can begin losing pressure for many different reasons. Checking your boiler pressure is quick and easy. Simply look at the built-in pressure gauge on your boiler and take the reading. If the needle is below one, this means the pressure is too low and that is why central heating systems are not functioning properly. How to reset your boiler pressure should be explained in your systems manual.

Frozen Pipes 

Frozen pipes are an extremely common boiler issue. Every system has a condensate pipe. This pipe transports acidic water produced as a result of waste gas and usually runs outside into the drain. Depending on the location of the pipe, it can be susceptible to freezing during the winter. Boilers will usually display a warning notification for a frozen pipe.

Burst Pipes

Burst pipes are one of the most devastating boiler issues. They can be caused by a range of issues such as freezing, water pressure, or failure to complete regular maintenance checks. There is a range of methods to prevent burst pipes, such as annual servicing or insulation. At Origin, we are highly experienced in burst pipe repair and are happy to offer any advice on preventing them.

Unusual Boiler Noise 

Your boiler producing a low hum is normal. However, a loud boiler or an unusual sounding boiler could be a sign of a serious problem. Different noises indicate different issues. A whistle or a gurgle usually means that air is trapped inside system pipes or the boiler itself. Bleeding your radiators should solve this issue. If this doesn’t work, it’s best to call an engineer to locate and repair the issue which should fix the noise.

Boiler Emergency

At Origin, our plumbers are on hand to help you with your boiler when it breaks down. Some cases are more severe than others, but it is always best to call an engineer as soon as possible. This can help to minimise further damage being caused to your home and system, leading to more costly repairs. Getting your boiler fixed quickly will also mean your family is not uncomfortable for too long, and you can return your home to comfort. For a trusted, Gas Safe engineer, contact Origin today.

How Do I Find a Gas Safe Engineer?

Gas Safe Engineer

GassafeEnsuring you find a gas safe engineer to complete any work you have planned is incredibly important. Having an engineer that holds this qualification means you can ensure your work is carried out as safely as possible. Here at Origin, all of our engineers are Gas Safe registered and highly experienced in boiler installation and emergency plumbing.

If you need a Gas Safe Engineer in East Kilbride, Clydebank and all the surrounding Glasgow areas, contact Origin today.

What Is a Gas Safe Engineer?

Gas Safe Register is the official list of businesses that are legally permitted to carry out gas work. Every registered business employs an engineer(s), who is issued with a Gas Safe ID card. Not all engineers are qualified to do all types of gas work. This means that before your engineer begins carrying out your work, you need to check their ID card. All the work they are qualified for will be noted there. You can find our Gas Safe listing on the Gas Safe Register website.

How to Check a Gas Safe Engineer

It is now a law requirement for engineers to be on the Gas Safe register to be able to work on gas appliances. Someone not registered could cause catastrophic harm, and yet according to the Gas Safety Register, one million gas jobs are completed illegally every year. Plumbing work carried on your boiler by an unregistered engineer could result in issues such as carbon monoxide leaks. If left unchecked, carbon monoxide leaks can prove fatal to your family. Therefore it’s vital you use Gas Safe Registered engineers.

How to Check If an Engineer Is Gas Safe Registered

Here at Origin, all our engineers are Gas Safe Registered. You can check this by using the database on the Gas Safe Register website. You can also check if an engineer is Gas Safe Registered by checking their ID photo card upon arrival. You should always request to see this card with an engineer before they do any work on your boiler, to ensure they are safe. If for any reason your engineer can not produce their ID card, make sure you delay the work until they can.

When the card is presented to you, you need to ensure all the details are correct. Check that the correct company and engineer names and photographs are listed. Unscrupulous operators will try to mislead you into believing they are registered by presenting you with a fake card, or a real card containing false information. Therefore, you must check this information carefully.

How to Evaluate a Gas Safe ID Card

Once your engineer presents their ID card, you should immediately look for the Gas Safe security hologram. Fake cards will be unable to replicate this hologram. You should then check that the photograph on the ID card matches the engineer who turned up to the job. Once you have established that the engineer is who they say they are, you should then check the details on the card itself. For example, engineer and company name. Ensure that the card hasn’t expired and that a license number has been embossed on the card.

On the opposite side of the ID card, you will find a list of appliances your engineer is qualified to work on. Some engineers are only qualified for specific appliances. Ensure that your engineer has the qualifications to carry out the work you hired them for. If you do not see your appliance listed, do not go forward with the work. An unsafe engineer can cause serious damage and safety issues in your system.

Here at Origin, all our engineers are Gas Safe Registered and trained to the highest standards. For boiler installation, repairs, or maintenance, contact Origin today.

Step-by-Step Boiler Sizing Guide

Origin GPH Boiler

At Origin Plumbing and Heating, we understand that choosing and sizing your boiler can be complicated. When working out what size boiler you will need, the first thing to consider is,how much heat and hot water do you and your family require. This will help you to determine the correct boiler size and minimise the stress of the boiler installation process. It is important to choose your system size correctly so that you can have hot water at your disposal and heat your home efficiently. This will also avoid creating high energy costs. Here at Origin our engineers are highly trained and well experienced in all aspects of boiler installation and repairs.

Boiler size also affects what type of system you will need.

Combi Boilers

Combi boilers, short for combination boilers, are one of the most common boilers installed throughout UK homes. This type of system will fulfil both your heating and hot water demands. The size of your combi boiler will be determined by your family size, demand for hot water and the amount of bathrooms in your home. The correct sizing is crucial with this type of system. However, when sized and installed correctly they are practical, versatile systems. Other benefits of the combi boiler include being efficient, easy to maintain and low cost to run.

Combi Boiler Size Calculator

Before looking at the factors which decide the size boiler you will need, understanding how boiler size is measured first is key. You need the output of the boiler in kilowatts (kW) and not the physical dimensions of the boiler. A kilowatt unit is used to measure how much energy is emitted from a boiler in heat. The more hot water and heat your home requires, the higher the boiler output will need to be. These three factors will determine what size boiler you will need: 

  • The number of radiators
  • The number of bathrooms (with non-electric showers)
  • The number of people in the home (the demand for hot water)

combi boilers

It’s always best to book a consultation with a gas engineer to size and install your boiler. This will ensure you have the correct system for your needs and that it has been installed correctly. Visit our website to find out what boiler models and sizes we offer. Contact us today to book a consultation.

Gas Boilers 

Installing a gas boiler can be a little more complicated. Using natural or propane gasses, gas boilers heat the water in the boiler to boiling point. Once the steam is created, it is then transferred using the pipes in your system to the individual radiators throughout your home. A gas boiler that is too small for your home will not fulfill your needs. It will struggle to cope with demand and therefore will not provide hot water and heat efficiently. Installing a gas boiler that is too big, will leave you with more than you require and expensive energy bills. When it comes to sizing this kind of system, the process is a little more technical and will involve calculating the square feet in your home.

Gas boiler size calculator 

To calculate a gas boiler, you’ll need the size of your house to hand. You were likely informed of this when you brought your home, however, if you do not have this information, you’ll need to measure your home. To begin, measure each of your rooms by beginning in the corner. Measure the two walls that meet in this spot and then record the dimensions. Complete this step for each room, once you’ve finished you’ll need to convert all of your measurements into square feet. The next step is to calculate the BTU’s (British Thermal Units). 

gas boilers

Your boiler system will need to produce 50BTU per square feet of your home to heat it efficiently. To get a rough size estimate multiply the measurement of your home by 50. Other factors can affect boiler size and therefore, it can become complicated. Variables such as heat loss and boiler installation can affect the amount of work your boiler needs to do. To ensure you have the best sized system for your home, it’s best to contact a reputable engineer.

The Most Common Boiler Issues and How to Prevent Them

Origin Baxi Boiler Service

Unfortunately, boiler breakdowns can be common and are never convenient. There are a range of different components within your system and situations that can cause your boiler to break down. There are also a range of different methods that you can use to prevent system breakdowns and ensure maximum operating efficiency. Here at Origin, our engineers are highly experienced in locating and repairing all types of common boiler issues. Here, we’ll take a look at the most common boiler issues are, and what you can do to help prevent them from happening. 

Annual Servicing 

Boilers work hard to keep our homes warm and to make sure they continue to do so efficiently, they need to be maintained. A boiler service every 12 months will ensure your system continues to work as it should. 

During a boiler service, your engineer will check all components of your boiler and if they are operating correctly. This will help to highlight any potential problems before they become an emergency. You will be able to schedule any necessary repairs at your convenience. Often, customers avoid annual servicing on the pretense that they are saving on their energy costs. However, emergency repairs are often a lot more cost demanding. 

All kinds of boilers require annual servicing and here at Origin we are highly experienced in the field. Schedule an appointment at a convenient time and we will attend your property well equipped and ready to complete the service swiftly. 

Common Boiler Issues and solutions 

We’ve outlined some of the most common boiler issues and preventions/solutions below:

  • No Heating or Hot Water 

One of the most common and inconvenient boiler issues is having no heating or hot water. There can be many possible causes for this breakdown so it’s usually best to call out an engineer to find a solution. Start by checking your thermostat. If this isn’t the problem, it could be a broken part. Said broken part will simply need to be replaced to get your boiler back in working order. 

  • Boiler Cutting Out 

Your Boiler may turn on just fine, but cut out during operation. This is usually an issue caused by irregular pressure. Start by checking your pressure gauge, if this is fine then bleeding your radiators can help to alleviate pressure. Always call an engineer for advice on any boiler issues you’re not sure on. 

  • Water Leakage 

A boiler leakage can be caused by a variety of issues and determining the cause can become tricky. It’s important to learn where the water is leaking from.  Usually an internal component of the boiler such as a pressure valve is broken. However, sometimes a leak can come from the tank or pipes due to improper fitting or corrosion. When experiencing a boiler leakage it is important to call out an emergency plumber as soon as possible. This will prevent damage being caused to your home and get your system repaired quickly and efficiently. 

  • Low Boiler Pressure 

A boiler can begin losing pressure for many different reasons. Checking your boiler pressure is quick and easy. Simply look at the built in pressure gauge on your boiler and take the reading. If the needle is below one, this means the pressure is too low and that is why central heating systems are not functioning properly. How to reset your boiler pressure should be explained in your systems manual. However, if you are wary of doing this yourself, call an engineer. 

  • Frozen Pipes 

Frozen pipes are an extremely common boiler issue. Every system has a condensate pipe. This pipe transports acidic water produced as a result of waste gas and usually runs outside into the drain. Depending on the location of the pipe, it can be susceptible to freezing during the winter. Boilers will usually display a warning notification for a frozen pipe.

You can fix this problem yourself by locating the pipe and pouring warm water over it or placing a warm cloth on top. Once the pipe is cleared, you’ll need to reset your boiler so that it starts working again. You should find system rest information in the accompanying manual. As always, if you feel unsafe doing this yourself for any reason, Origin Plumbing and Heating are happy to help. 

  • Burst Pipes 

Burst pipes are one of the most devastating boiler issues. They can be caused by a range of issues such as freezing, water pressure or failure to complete regular maintenance checks. There are a range of methods to prevent burst pipes, such as annual servicing or insulation. At Origin, we are highly experienced in burst pipe repair and are happy to offer any advice on preventing them. 

  • Unusual Boiler Noise 

Your boiler producing a low hum is normal. However, a loud boiler or an unusual sounding boiler could be a sign of a serious problem. Different noises indicate different issues. A whistle or a gurgle usually means that air is trapped inside system pipes or the boiler itself. Bleeding your radiators should solve this issue. If this doesn’t work, it’s best to call an engineer to locate and repair the issue which should fix the noise. 

  • Radiators Not Heating Up 

Built-up sludge or air in the system could prevent your radiators from heating up efficiently. If the top of your radiator remains cold your radiators need bleeding. This process is simple and shouldn’t  require the help of an engineer. If some of your radiators are heating up but others aren’t, they may need balancing. This can be done by adjusting the valves on all of your radiators to make sure they’re receiving enough hot water. 

If neither of these solutions solve your issue, then it’s usually built up sludge in the system preventing the hot water flow. It’s not safe to try and remove this sludge yourself. You’ll need a professional system clean or chemical flush to repair your system. We offer this service at Origin and all of our Gas Safe engineers are more than happy to help. 

  • No Pilot Light 

The small blue flame in your boiler that keeps the burner lit is known as the pilot light. If this keeps going out, then your system will not work efficiently. Usually, the thermocouple is broken and is disrupting the gas supply. If you’re going to attempt to reignite the light yourself, make sure you check the gas supply for issues. There should be advice on reigniting the pilot light in your systems accompanying instructions manual. If there is a gas issue, this is a sign you need to call out an engineer.

The Most Common Boiler Issues and How to Prevent Them

A Step by Step Guide to the Boiler Installation Process

Origin GPH New Boiler Glasgow

Your boiler is the heart of your home and responsible for making your home warm and cosy, as well as fulfilling your hot water needs. Therefore, it is essential your system is installed properly and has been correctly suited to your needs. This will help prevent future breakdowns and costly repairs. At Origin, we pride ourselves on installing boiler systems efficiently and effectively.

Once you have found the engineer to install your new boiler, the next step is to get a quote. This will enable you to work out how much money you’ll need to finance your new boiler. The engineer will also be able to explain potential running costs to you, once the type of system you need has been decided.

It’s also helpful to know exactly what takes place during the boiler installation process, just so you know what to expect on the day. Our quick guide to boiler installations will run through what takes place, all step-by-step.

What Happens on Installation Day?

  • Removal of Old Boiler

Firstly, your engineer will remove your old boiler system. The length of time this will take depends on the system your engineer is removing and the complexity of the job. 

  • Flush/Clean

Once your old boiler has been removed, the system will need to be flushed and cleaned. When having a new boiler installed, it is important to ensure that the water in the system is as clean as possible. A flush prior to installation will help prevent any damage being caused by debris from your old system. 

  • Upgrades to Your Pipework

Your pipes may need to be replaced or updated to ensure the efficiency of your new system. This isn’t always a simple job and can take up a large amount of your engineer’s time if this action is necessary. 

  • Fitting Your Boiler

Once all the preparations have been completed, it’s time for your engineer to install your new boiler. You can change the location of your boiler if you wish, but this may add extra time to the process. It’s always best to ask for and listen to an engineer’s advice on where would be the best location for your system within your home. 

  • Filter Installation

It is usually recommended to install a filter system alongside your boiler. This will collect any debris or sludge that builds up over time and protect your boiler. This will ensure your system remains clean and runs efficiently. 

  • Commissioning 

Once everything has been installed to standard, your engineer will need to commission your boiler. This will ensure everything is installed and running correctly. 

  • Handover 

Once all the above steps have been completed and your boiler is running efficiently, your engineer should then complete a handover with you. This includes explaining to you how your system works and any warranties it comes with. Regular maintenance checks you’ll need to complete during the boilers’ lifespan should also be explained to you. 

  • Registration

Once the installation is complete, either the homeowner or the engineer will need to register the boiler. This will ensure your warranty is valid, making sure you are covered if you were to experience any issues.

Ensuring your boiler is installed correctly is essential in preventing any unnecessary breakdowns or repairs. You can contact us to book your boiler installation/get a quote or answer any relevant questions you may have.

A Step by Step Guide to the Boiler Installation Process

Why do you need annual boiler servicing?

We can all agree that a working boiler is a necessity when the weather is out of sorts, and all you can do is dream about walking into a warm, welcoming home.

It is also nice to have hot water because of creature comforts and all that.

In all seriousness, though, even though boilers these days are very reliable and will last for years, it is still a good idea to have them serviced regularly.

Honestly, it should have a spot on your yearly home maintenance checklist.

Maintenance vs Safety Checks

Annual boiler servicing keeps your family safe and protects your home from potential damages. When seeking out a professional to check for issues, always verify that it is a Gas Safe registered engineer doing the work.

Safety checks let you know that everything is working correctly and safely, but it is not the same thing as servicing your boiler. Proper servicing includes inspecting the combustion chambers are in working order as well as all other internal components.

Servicing must be done by a professional.

Warranty Requirements

New boilers have warranties or some sort of guarantee for the first several years after installation. Should you choose to purchase an extended warranty, it is not unusual for one of the requirements to be mandatory annual boiler servicing.

You will need to check the requirements because, in some instances, there are additional requirements stating that only approved engineers can perform the servicing.

Remember to read the fine print, so you do not haphazardly invalidate your warranty.

During the Service

When getting your boiler serviced, several steps are followed to ensure the unit is working as designed. They will typically start with the controls to verify that they were working correctly.

The boiler is also inspected for any leaks or corrosion that could cause future problems. The casing is then removed to examine the inner components. Gas pressure is also checked and verified for what is expected of your model.

A boiler servicer will also test your flue for noxious or dangerous fumes that could harm you or your family. If they detect anything, they will let you know so you can decide what to do next.
In the end, the casing will be popped back in place with a final check of any exposed seals. If everything passes the inspection, then you would typically receive a report or checklist of everything that was examined.

Getting Your Boiler Serviced

Having your boiler serviced is undoubtedly best practice, but if you see other signs indicating service is needed earlier, do not hesitate to call on your local boiler repair specialist.

Some signs include a yellow flame instead of a blue flame, marks or stains around a gas boiler, a pilot light that refuses to stay on, or an increase in the amount of condensation in your boiler room.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and difficulty breathing. If you suspect a gas leak, get your boiler inspected as soon as possible and vacate your family and pets.

Everything you need to know about Burst Pipes

Origin gph Burst Pipes Repair

Burst pipes can be a nightmare, especially if left to their own devices. They can quickly do damage to electrical work as well as structural elements such as floors and ceilings if not fixed promptly.

A common misconception is that pipes only burst in winter when they become frozen. However, this is not always the case as pipes can burst at any time of year due to general wear and tear.

This article will indicate what you need to look for and what action to take once you have a burst pipe on your hands.

Burst Pipe Symptoms

When most people think of a burst pipe they think of water gushing out of a huge hole in the side of a pipe. Whilst this is indeed the case sometimes, often a burst pipe can be a lot subtler, causing damage without you necessarily realising until it’s too late.

Things to look out for:

  • Water pressure issues or intermittent water supply to taps
  • Water damages patches on your walls or ceilings
  • Damp patches of flooring
  • Bulges in walls

Once you realise you have a burst pipe you need to act fast.

What to Do When You Discover a Burst Pipe

The first action you must take is to turn the water off. This is usually controlled through a stopcock that is generally located under your kitchen sink, underneath your boiler or in some cases is located outside. You’ll need to switch off your central heating too.

Once everything is off, open up all of your taps to drain the system and then close them back up once there is no more water left to run off. At this point you need to call an emergency plumber whilst you mop up the water and make sure any electrics are safe.

We offer a rapid response service for burst pipes in and around North London, so if disaster does strike, call us on 020 3984 9531 and we’ll get out to you as soon as possible.

What to Do After a Burst Pipe Is Fixed

Once you have a plumber on-site, it’s time to ring your insurance company and start the process of totting up the damage to your property and your belongings. Make sure to take photos of everything and receipts for anything that needs replacing.

If your flood is particularly severe you will need to wait for your insurance company to send a loss adjuster out to you. They will begin the process of sorting out repairs and drying out your flooded space. In the meantime, move any possessions out of harm’s way.

Make sure to never throw anything away that you’ve had to replace without first documenting it and sending it through to your insurers.

Conclusion

Suffering a burst pipe can be catastrophic if not acted upon quickly. If you are inside your home and it happens to you, now you know what to do in order to limit the damage.

In this emergency situation, it is crucial to call for a plumber as soon as possible, particularly if you cannot locate the water supply to turn it off. We offer a rapid response burst pipe repair service for the North London area should the need ever arise.

Common Boiler Problems

Boiler Installation

We understand that a broken boiler results in nothing but bad news for every homeowner, especially if it occurs during the winter months. However, issues always arise and sometimes the homeowners may be able to fix them. On the other hand, we always do recommend giving professionals like Origin a call just to be on the safe side and ensure everything runs smoothly. It is always a good idea to have an inclination towards the cause of the problem.

Common Boiler Problems

Here are 7 common boiler problems you may come across.

1. No Heat or Hot Water

It becomes very difficult when your boiler ceases to do the very opposite, which is providing your home without any heating or hot water. This issue can be caused by anything from a faulty valve, to a broken system and even low pressure within your boiler.

To determine whether this issue is caused by low pressure, you should check your gauge to see if it is below 1. If so you may need repressuring, however if it is caused by your thermostat check the devices manufacturer guide for a possible solution. If none can be found, we then recommend that you call your manufacturer for help.

2. Condensate Pipe Freezing

The second common problem is during the cold weather your pipe may freeze and can cause a blockage. This will then make the condentstate back up into the boiler and cause a shutdown. Your system is responsible for transporting the condensate from your boiler to your outside drain. During the colder seasons the condensate can freeze and cause a blockage to occur. This is particularly the reason for where your condensate pipe is fitted externally or if it’s in an unheated space such as a garage.

If you are having a problem with your boiler’s condensate pipe freezing up in winter. You can ask your heating engineer to install a thermal warming kit called a heat track condense pipe kit. Which then eliminates the problem of your pipes freezing.

3. Pilot Light Going Out

The older the boiler may have a permanent pilot light which needs to stay lit in order to light the larger burner within your boiler. This can imply that there is a faulty thermocouple that is cutting off the gas supply. Which means that there could be a build-up or a draught blowing the light out.

Common Boiler Problems

You could try to reignite the pilot light yourself if you are comfortable in doing so. If you do please follow the instructions in your boiler manual. Before you do this you should ensure that your gas stopcock is on and ensure there are no issues within your gas supply. You can check other gas appliances to confirm this. We recommend contacting a Gas Safe registered engineer to help solve this issue.

4. The Boiler Keeps Switching Off

One of the reasons for why your boiler keeps turning off may be due to error codes. Each boiler model comes with a range of error or fault codes, their manual should come with a list of these. As a result, when a code appears on your boiler this can refer to the manufacturers manual to identify the issue. They could also be shutting down randomly due to the low water pressure with the thermostat and air within the system. In order to fix this issue the best alternative to do is to call Origin today to help you fix the issue.

5. Strange Noises Coming From Your Boiler

Don’t be alarmed, it is normal for your boiler to be making noise whilst it’s in operation, especially if it’s just firing up. However if you realize that your boiler suddenly begins to make an unusual gurgling and banging noise we therefore recommend getting in touch with a qualified gas safe engineer. The noise can be caused by the air within the system, a faulty pump, low water pressure or even build up of limescale.

6. Leaks

A boiler leak can be caused by an issue within your internal component, such as the pressure valve or pump seal. If the leak stems from your pressure relief valve, it is less likely that your system’s pressure becomes too high. A leak that has been developed around the system pipes could be caused by corrosion.

There could also be an issue with the way your boiler has been installed. We always recommend that you should consult with a trained engineer to help identify and fix the issue. If the leak is caused by a serious fault, your engineer may recommend you to install a new boiler.

8. Radiator Faults

One of the most common problems that always pop up out of nowhere are radiator issues. Cold patches and other problems are usually caused by a buildup of air or sludge inside your radiators that can cause the heat to be distributed unequally. Cold patches are in different areas which can also indicate different kinds of issues. Find out more today just give us a call. A great deal of radiator issues can be resolved by bleeding the radiator, a simple task that you can undertake yourself.
