Here at Abbey Boilers, in Horsham, West Sussex, we come across a number of common boiler problems...
If you got a leaky boiler system then it is absolutely best to call out an Abbey Boiler Services professional. Leaks and drips generally mean an internal component is faulty - like the pump seal or pressure value. If you’re finding leaks around the pipes, radiators, and joints then it’s either because the system has been installed poorly or you are experiencing corrosion.
Definitely not what you want on a cold winter morning! Broken airlocks and diaphragms, thermostat issues, a low water level, or valve failure could all be the problem here. Some of these challenges you could perhaps tackle yourself, but it’s trial and error if you don’t know what you’re doing. Talking to an Abbey Boiler professional would be advisable.
Well, this one’s easy to spot, isn’t it?! No flame/pilot light on the boiler. This could be due to a mechanical issue stopping the gas supply or simply a draught coming from somewhere blowing it out. Before attempting to re-light the pilot flame, please check your gas supply is turned off. If you have any doubts, it’s best to leave it to someone who knows’s what they’re doing.
Thermostats & Timers
At Abbey Boilers, here in Horsham, West Sussex - one of the key areas we see our customers having trouble is unreliable thermostats and timers. With a thermostat located in an awkward place, like an attic, cellar, next to a window or cooker, it can rec havoc with the temperature reading and cause your heating to come on at all sorts of odd times.
Malfunctioning or complicated digital boiler controllers/timers can also make things difficult - especially for older residents.
The benefits of fitting out your house with pipe insulation are two-fold. As we all know, when water freezes, it expands. Now imagine the water in your household pipes freezing during a particularly cold snap in winter. A burst pipe and an ugly situation you don’t want to be dealing with. And you don’t have to. By adding pipe insulation to your boiler system you’ll ensure that the water in your pipes never dips below freezing temperatures.
The second benefit? Pipe insulation is also going to reduce your energy bills.
Ask one of our Abbey Boiler service professionals more about pipe insulation during your autumn service.

A Power Flush is a professional level deep clean of your heating and water system. It’ll clean out all the built up sludge and grime in the pipes and radiators and replace it with clean water and a corrosion inhibitor.
This will vastly improve the efficiency of your central heating system - meaning you don’t need to have it on for such lengthy periods in order to heat your home sufficiently. Save money!
