FAQ's on Boiler Repairs in Harborne

It always feels like a disaster when something goes wrong with your boiler. Naturally, you want your boiler repaired as quickly as possible but there are no doubt lots of questions floating around your head about what you need to do. As experienced plumbers and heating engineers, Bog Standard Plumbing hear these a lot and have jotted down some pointers to help you in managing the repair work to your boiler.

Boiler repairs in Harborne [FAQs]

How do I know what’s wrong with my boiler?

The short answer is: you may not! Boilers are complex creatures, and often need investigating before a solution can be sought. Sometimes it’s more obvious what’s wrong, for example, when your boiler is on but your radiators aren’t heating, it might be a thermostat problem. Or if your boiler isn’t working in winter, a frozen condensate pipe can be the issue. Whatever it is, an experienced heating engineer can get to the bottom of it and do their best to get it sorted.

How long will my boiler repair take?

Again, this one is tricky to answer as some repairs can be carried out immediately whereas others require new parts. Most heating engineers keep commonly needed parts in their van so this doesn’t always involve a wait. Other times a part has to be ordered or collected, but your heating engineer should keep you in the loop and give you an approximate timescale for fully completing the repair. 

Are you Gas Safe registered?

Yes - and anyone who works on your boiler should be. This is crucial for your safety and not something you should compromise on.

What should I look for when choosing someone to carry out my boiler repairs?

As above, they should be Gas Safe registered.
