When your boiler starts to make some of these noises it is definitely time to call the services of Blu Fish. They are a premium Boiler Installation Cheltenham based company that can make sure that if you do need to have a new system added to your home they will fit it correctly and safely.  Hopefully though it will not come to that just yet and you can look at having you bolier around for a bit longer yet. Here are some things to look out for.

  • Kettling noise. This is usually a buildup of steam in the pipes. It is quite natural but can be the state of some underlying issues.
  • The water pump is the most common error that you find with boilers. When you consider the amount of work that the poor pump has to put up with it’s not really that much of a surprise. It has to send the heater water around all of the radiators in the home and if you have a town house then that’s a tall order.
  • Whooshing sound. This could be a lack of gas or gas pressure. Anything to do with the gas supply is very serious so this should be looked at straight away.
  • Deep humming or vibration and rattling. Nothing will happen as there are many safety feature s on the boiler to protect it. However this is a very serious development and someone should be called to come and fix it.

The other thing to remember is to not try and touch any of it yourself. This is one part of the house where DIY is not an option. Always call the professionals.
