Boiler Christmas Breakdown

Boiler Christmas Breakdown

A Christmas heating breakdown is a lot of peoples’ worst nightmare. To reduce the risk boiler Christmas breakdown book a Christmas boiler service. Every gas appliance in your home needs to be maintained and inspected every year.

Boiler Christmas Breakdown

In a Christmas boiler service and safety inspection, your Gas Safe qualified engineer will:

  • Test the boiler pressure
  • Check for unsafe emissions at the flue
  • Test the boiler controls
  • Visually inspect the boiler’s condition
  • Issue a CP12 inspection certificate

If your boiler has been unused during summer, it could break in a cold snap. A lot of problems that can cause a breakdown are identified and rectified at the service. Trying to book a boiler repair at Christmas is harder. Your newly maintained boiler will be more efficient – and save money on bills.

Common Christmas Boiler Problems

Some of the issues you could find when your boiler is serviced are:

Automatic vent

If this is faulty, you could notice dripping water or a limescale build-up outside.

Limescale build-up

Limescale builds up in central heating pipes in hard-water areas and can cause fluctuations in water temperature.

Blocked pressure relief valve

A failed valve can lead to a constant dripping from the pipe on your outside wall.

Pump failure

Often caused by a sludge build-up, pump failure stops the entire system from operating.

Diverter valve

When a diverter valve fails, the system gets stuck on either hot water or central heating. Turning on the hot taps can make your radiators heat up, but tap water will be lukewarm.


If your radiators are hot at the top and colder at the bottom, it may be time for a Power Flush to clear the sludge.
