Signs that Your Boiler Needs a Repair
If your boiler starts acting up, it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible. Not only is a broken boiler a major inconvenience, but it can also be dangerous. Thankfully, most boiler repairs are relatively simple and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Here are some of the most common boiler repairs that you may need to make:
Replacing a broken thermostat – If your boiler’s thermostat is broken, it will need to be replaced. This fairly simple repair shouldn’t cost more than a spare part and an hour or two of work.
Noisy radiator repair – If your radiator is making a lot of noise, it may need to be bled to remove air from the pipework. This is a simple repair that will only cost labour and often doesn’t require any replacement parts.
Leaking radiator valve – A leaking radiator valve can be easily fixed by replacing the valve. This is a relatively inexpensive repair.
Full tune-up and replacement of several parts – If your boiler is more than 15 years old, it may need a full tune-up. This will involve replacing several parts, such as the burner, heat exchanger, pumps or controls. The cost of this repair will vary depending on the make, model, age and condition of your boiler.

Is it worth repairing a boiler?
The cost of boiler repair can vary greatly depending on the type of boiler, the age of the boiler, and the severity of the problem. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to replace your boiler rather than repair it. However, there are many factors to consider before making a decision, such as the cost of a new boiler, the expected lifespan of a repaired boiler and the disruption caused by having to install a new boiler.
What is the most expensive part of a boiler?
The heat exchanger is the most important part of a boiler. If you are required to replace it, a heat exchanger would cost you £300 – £500 and this is just for the replacement part. It doesn’t include the cost an engineer will charge you for changing the part.
But the cost of heat exchangers varies from model to model and brand to brand. For big brands like Worcester and Valliant, the price can exceed £500
What is the most common boiler problem?
