Common Wigan boiler problems

Some of the Wigan central heating engineers issues you could find when your boiler is services are:

Automatic air vent

If this is at fault, you might notice dripping water or limescale building up at the vent outside.

Limescale build-up

Limescale builds up in central heating pipes is very common in hard-water areas. It can cause fluctuations in the temperature of water from your hot taps.

Blocked pressure relief valve

A failed or blocked valve can lead to constant dripping from the copper pipe located on your outside wall behind the boiler.

Pump failure

Often caused by sludge, pump failure will stop the entire system from working.

Diverter valve

When the diverter valve fails, the system will get stuck on either the hot water or central heating setting. Turning on the hot taps may make your radiators heat up, and water will be lukewarm.

Sludge build up

If your radiators are boiling hot at the top and cold at the bottom, it may be time for a Power Flush to get rid of accumulated sludge, so your radiators work more efficiently.
