Central Heating Repairs

Central heating is important, particularly in moderate climates like the UK, and a failure in that system can—depending on your circumstances—be anything from a mild inconvenience to a life-threatening situation. In many cases, an issue with your central heating will also mean problems with your hot water, adding another level of inconvenience. That’s why you want fast action when such a problem occurs. Fortunately, No1PHD are poised to help with our team of experts ready to put your central heating problems to bed.

Leaking Pipes

One of the most concerning things that can go wrong with a central heating system is leaking pipes. A professionally fit system is unlikely to suffer from such an issue, but radiators are fitted in the rooms of your home, and so the pipes feeding those radiators are exposed. Accidentally kicking or otherwise banging these pipes can cause small leaks to develop. In these cases, don’t panic. Try to catch the leak in a container and call No1PHD so we can get a professional out to fix your problem.

My Radiators aren’t Very Warm…

This can happen for several reasons. Air getting into the radiators is the most common cause of decreased heating capacity. It can also be down to a faulty boiler (which will usually affect your hot water in most combi-boiler homes). Having your central heating system serviced by one of our technicians at regular intervals will generally prevent this kind of problem from occurring, but if you have such an issue already, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can make your life that little bit easier.

Radiator Replacement

It’s not necessary to wait for a problem to develop before calling No1PHD for help. In some cases, you can get ahead of the game by having potential fault dealt with before they fully develop. One such situation is old and/or corroded radiators. Corroded radiators are not just unsightly, they will eventually develop leaks, potentially damaging flooring or staining carpets, not to mention reducing the effectiveness of your central heating system. Having a central heating radiator replaced is no small task, and should always be undertaken by a trained professional.


My Boiler Seems to be Working but my Central Heating Isn’t

Central heating systems are usually installed with either a timer, a thermostat, or both. These switch your central heating on and off depending on the time or temperature, allowing you to both save money and better control the conditions of your home. If something were to go wrong with a timer or thermostat, it could prevent the heating from turning on. It could also prevent central heating from turning off, which can be just as much of an inconvenience. Timers can sometimes be built into the boiler themselves, and thermostats are often connected to a mains power supply. If you’re having this kind of problem, be sure to call us and we’ll get expert out to handle it.

What are Some Signs I Need my Central Heating Repaired?

There are times when a problem is obvious (such as the aforementioned leaking) but if you’re not knowledgable in plumbing and central heating, it can sometimes to be difficult to even notice a problem. Particularly if the problem is minor and has been there for some time, or you’ve just moved into a new home and the problem was already there. Here are some tell-tale signs that it might be time to call No1PHD;

  • Damp patches underneath radiators
  • Unusual noises from pipes or boiler
  • Radiators and/or hot water not heating properly/at all
  • Heating not coming on at all
  • Visibly corroded or damaged radiators

If you notice any of these issues, you should call us to get your system checked out. Ignoring problems like this can result in a minor fault developing into something more serious.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
