At Surrey Gas & Services Ltd, we understand that there is never a good time to suffer a boiler breakdown. A broken or faulty boiler in the winter months, however, can cause all manner of difficulties. Whatever the season, being without heating or hot water for any length of time can be a real concern for homeowners, particularly if they have children, or if there are elderly people living inside the property.
As former British Gas engineers, our personnel have more than 16 years of combined experience. We specialise in boiler repairs for Epsom and the surrounding Surrey area.
We always aim to complete diagnostics within the hour so we can get down to fixing the problem as soon as possible. Acting quickly will not only get your system running efficiently a little sooner, but it also stops problems from getting worse.
Below, our gas engineers have compiled a list of signs that indicate you may need to book in for boiler repairs.
Certain noises indicate that a boiler is on and working. If you hear unusual noises coming from the boiler of your Epsom or Surrey home, however, then it isn’t functioning properly. Sounds like mechanical clunking, whistling, sloshing or gurgling may indicate a damaged heat pump, a faulty fan, a blocked system or a broken heat exchanger.
Please contact us for boiler repairs sooner rather than later. A fast response to an issue helps you avoid permanent damage which could leave you needing a new boiler installation.
Because carbon monoxide has no odour, gas companies add a sulphur smell to their supply, and this makes it easier for homeowners to detect leaks. Gas leaks are incredibly dangerous so, if your boiler is emitting an ammonia smell and there are dark spots on the casing, call our gas engineers immediately.
This is an instance where you’ll need to call us for emergency boiler repairs as urgently as possible.
Hot Water Delays
Whether you’re a homeowner, a tenant or a landlord, if it takes a long time for water to heat up, be it for taps or the central heating system, then you may have a circulation issue. Book in for boiler repairs and we’ll get the hot water in your property to flow more efficiently. We offer responsive 24/7 callouts in Epsom and all surrounding areas.
In the event of cold spots or underperforming radiators, you might need our gas engineers for powerflushing instead.
Damaged components and internal malfunctions can cause boilers to leak, which can then result in water damage to your Surrey property. If you notice that the pressure of a boiler drops, or if you spot a leak (even if it’s just a single drip), call our gas engineers and book in for emergency boiler repairs.
It makes sense to be pre-emptive about leaks, however small, before they turn into something much more serious.
Higher Energy Bills
If there’s a sudden spike in your energy bills, or if they are slowly increasing and costing you more than they usually would, this could be due to an inefficient or faulty boiler that’s in need of repair. Whatever the problem, Surrey Gas & Services Ltd has the experience needed to handle it.
Our gas engineers offer 24-hour callouts for emergency boiler repairs in Epsom and Surrey, but we also troubleshoot on an appointment basis using diagnostic equipment.
