Tell-tale signs

Have you noticed any clunking, banging, whistling or gurgling? These are known as ‘kettling’ sounds and are a sign your boiler may need replacing.
Depending on your boiler type, noises can vary and may indicate small or larger issues.

Trapped air can be easily removed by a qualified boiler expert however more complex issues such as limescale or sediment deposits can lead to leaking, reducing energy-efficiency and eventually resulting in significant damage.

Never attempt boiler repairs yourself, only trust the experts. Contact Warmer Communities for FREE advice if you have concerns over noises or want to improve your energy-efficiency: 01228 812 867

What type of boiler would work for me?

Connected to mains gas and need a low-cost option?

Gas boilers are recommended by The Energy Savings Trust (EST) because unlike other options they heat fuel per kWh.
If you’re not connected to mains gas, you may want to consider a form of low carbon heating such as a heat pump or biomass which may have a lower overall cost thanks to the renewable heat incentive but you CAN get connected, Warmer Communities can help gain access to funding towards whole house energy-efficient solutions, enquire HERE.

Combi, or combination boilers function as an energy-efficient water heater and a central heating boiler in one compact unit, making them ideal for small properties.
They are cost-effective and create powerful showers because water is heated instantly and dispensed at mains pressure – there is no need for a separate cylinder for storage.

These traditional or heat only boilers are linked to a separate hot water cylinder which is fed by a cold water storage tank, usually placed in the loft.
If your home is equipped with a traditional heating system and you use a lot of hot water at once, this may be the most suitable replacement.

Properties with old radiator systems may not be able to cope with the high pressure water that combi boilers supply.

Hot water and heating components are built into these boilers so there’s no need for a loft tank however they do require cylinders to store water.
Environmentally beneficial and economical to run, these boilers are compatible with solar water heating systems to help cut energy costs.
