Is my faulty boiler dangerous?
Among the many common boiler issues you may experience, very few are considered dangerous. However, some problems are more urgent than others, because leaving them too long can result in even more costly repairs for you further down the line.
Low boiler pressure (not dangerous)
If you are lacking hot water, then low boiler pressure may be the culprit. There are some quick fixes that you can try yourself by following your boiler guidelines, but if you can’t fix your boiler pressure yourself, it is time to call in a boiler repair expert in Dorchester.
Boiler is leaking (potentially dangerous)
If your boiler is leaking, it is a sign that a component inside is damaged and requires repair. If the boiler is not turned off immediately, you run the risk of an electrical short circuit, plus water damage to your property. It is highly recommended that you call a boiler repair specialist in Dorchester to undertake the repairs.
Pilot light changes colour (needs urgent repair)
Your pilot light should be bright blue or green in colour. Weak flames that are orange or yellow in colour are a sign of poor combustion. This can be very serious, especially if you can smell gas or soot. If you suspect a gas leak, call our boiler repair team in Dorchester immediately on 01202 08411.
