Signs your oil boiler needs repairing...

Common Oil Boiler Faults
Incorrect oil boiler pressure
Oil boilers need to be at the correct pressure in order to operate correctly. Incorrect pressure can even cause your oil boiler to not switch on. Oil boilers typically operate between 1-3 bar, with the ideal pressure usually being around 1.3 bar. If you suspect too high or too low pressure in your boiler system - get in touch with our expert oil boiler repair technicians.
Condensate pipe blockage
Condensate blockages caused by freezing is a common occurrence in oil boilers within the winter months of the year. We carry out defrosting and can also prevent freezing from occurring in the future.
Issues with your oil boiler fan often lead to your oil boiler not turning on. Due to the fact that the fan in your system acts as a safety mechanism, it is important to call a reputable oil boiler repair service as soon as you suspect a fan issue.
Air pressure switch fault
As mentioned, in the event of a fan failure, your oil boiler will not turn on as a safety precaution. The air pressure switch is how your boiler checks whether your fan is functioning correctly. Your boiler not turning on could also be the result od a faulty air pressure switch.
Radio Frequency issues
If your boiler is working is not responding to the thermostat, it could be a sign that your oil boiler FR transmitter is faulty or there could be a radio frequency crossover.
Printed Circuit board (PCB)
The PCB acts as the brains of your boiler and is what causes your oil boiler to shut down in cases where there is a dangerous issue with your oil boiler. Sometimes, these PCB units can be faulty and cause your oil boiler to shut down even when there are no issues throughout your system. One of our qualified oil boiler engineers will be able to diagnose a faulty PCB in your oil boiler system.
Benefits of oil boilers
