Common Central Heating System Repair Examples

Radiators have cold patches

The repair required is often suggested by where the cold patch is. If your radiator is cold at the top, this is likely to be trapped air and the radiator needs bleeding. However, if it is cold in the middle or at the bottom, this is often caused by a build up of scale or rust etc. or something blocking the flow of water; either way might require flushing through. It’s worth noting that if your radiators on one floor are hot, but on another floor are cold, this again suggests a blockage. However, if they’re cold on the top floor, this could also be to do with boiler pressure, and if they’re cold on the bottom floor, this could be to do with the pump.

Boiler problems

Typical boiler issues include:

  • You have hot water but no heating
  • You have heating but no hot water
  • You have neither heat nor hot water
  • Your boiler is leaking
  • Your boiler is making strange noises such as bubbling, hissing, or banging
  • Your boiler won’t ignite
  • Your boiler switches off too soon
  • Your boiler pressure is low

Leaking pipes

When you have a leaking pipe, sometimes it is as simple as tightening something up. However, that sounds easier than it can be in reality, for joints etc. get stuck and you risk damaging the pipework. Often, additional sealant is required as well or the leaky pipe actually needs to be replaced. So unless you’re totally confident in what you’re doing, it’s best to give us a ring so we can have a look.

Water tank overflow problems

System and regular boilers get their water from a tank, usually stored in the loft. If the ballcock becomes faulty or jams, this can cause an overflow and may mean the ballcock needs replacing.

If your property is in or around Milton Keynes and you have a problem with your central heating system, please just give us a call on 01908 034194. It’s always best to get it checked out sooner rather than later… before the cold weather sets in!

If you’re a landlord and you need experienced and swift action taken to replace an old cranky boiler, please don’t hesitate to give us a ring on 01908 034194. We’ll work quickly to get the problem resolved and keep your tenants happy.

What Our Customers Say

I’ve used Grand Union 3 times and every time the service is excellent and the price very reasonable. Engineers are very good at letting you know what they are doing and there are no hidden charges. They even managed to do a job at short notice. They work tidily and even followed up with a message to check my heating was still ok the following day. Highly recommend

Tom Holland
Highly recommend Grand Union Plumbing & Heating. We called Mitch after getting nowhere with the first 2 heating engineers we contacted. In contrast to them, Mitch quickly diagnosed the fault, ordered the part and replaced. Totally professional and good value for money.

Mitch was honest from the get go. Came round and gave me quote got the worl done within a couple of days once parts came.

Highly recommend the team to fix any plumbing or heating issues. They arrived as scheduled and it was great to have such a high standard of service. Will definitely be my contact for anymore plumbing issues and for boiler services.
Owen Thomas
Contacted them after having three boiler services being cancelled by a Big Five company only resulting to a wait till May for the 4th appointment. From the first day I contacted them Andy came around in a week’s time and provided excellent customer service and serviced our boiler very efficiently and quickly. The appointment ran a bit late due to another emergency call but both Mitch and Andy were apologetic and polite. Appreciate there excellent customer service on top of a job done well. Will be calling on them in future again for sure. Thank you.
Kaanita Khan
Would highly recommend Grand Union plumbing, really knowledgeable team. They were able to identify the problem with our heating pressure gauge, and release valve really quickly and stop our leak straight away. Thanks
Emma Thompson
Love these guys, have been using them for years and will keep using them for years in the future. They’re helpful, do amazing work each and every time, and are respectful of your home, both Andy and Cory took their shoes off when they came into the house recently, Cory put down dust sheets when he was fitting my new radiator in the bathroom (tiled floor wipes clean, but still put it down).
100% recommend them for any and all plumbing works and looking forward to having them do more work for me later in the year.
Ian Kockelbergh

It’s not very often that you find a quality tradesperson who is reliable, honest, and competitive on his pricing. Mitch has done a number of jobs in our house, including installing a new boiler, water tank and radiators. All to a brilliant standard. I will happily recommend Mitch and Grand Union Plumbing!

I have called Mitch out twice since moving into our new house a month ago. Both times he has managed to fit in an appointment fairly quickly to resolve our issues. He has been professional and friendly, offering advice on other issues that I have seen. I would definitely recommend his services.

Hannah Manners
Great company would highly recommend for any heating & plumbing issues

Definitely recommend these guys. Had a job done by them and they wasted no time to get it done and made sure I was completely happy before any payments. Nowadays companies just want to rush and take your money. Big thumps up

We always use Grand Union for serving and any other unforseen problems. The service and professionalism is 1st class. Would definitely recommend!!
Stephanie Horne
A great company to do business with… I used them recently for an emergency with a domestic heating system which was rectified very efficiently. A second problem (some months later) and there was no decision to make, called them and they sorted it in no time with minimum fuss, mess and very reasonably priced.
