BOILER REPAIR LONDON
Looking for boiler repair London? We’re here to help. We are WPJ Heating and we are South and West London’s leading heating company. All our heating engineers are registered with the Gas Safety Register which means that they are accredited to work on and repair your gas boiler.
COMMON BOILER PROBLEMS
Below are a few of the most common boiler problems and faults we repair daily:
- Radiators failing to heat up: Radiators may not get hot enough because of trapped air, dirty water in the system, or faulty radiator valves.
- Faulty pilot light: If a pilot light keeps going out, this could be due to a broken thermocouple, gas valves or air seal, or debris may be obstructing the pilot light.
- Low boiler pressure: When boilers continuously lose pressure or switch off, the culprit may be a leak on the central heating system or automatic air vent, a faulty pressure relief valve or a failing expansion vessel.
We can make recommendations on how to improve your boiler’s energy efficiency. We also provide reminders on when your boiler or gas appliances are due for annual servicing. This gives you the peace of mind that comes with proper boiler maintenance.

BOILER SERVICING AND GAS APPLIANCE CARE – CRUCIAL FOR SEVERAL REASONS
Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to any gas appliance in your home. The only way to ensure your boiler or appliance is functioning efficiently and safely is through proper maintenance and professional servicing every year.
Warranty. Annual servicing is a requirement in order to maintain your gas appliance’s warranty. If boiler repair or replacement should become necessary, a yearly service is the only way you can make a claim to the manufacturer.
Economic performance. For all gas appliances, such as boilers, gas fires and hobs, professional servicing is essential to guarantee the best economic performance. Proper maintenance will prolong the life of your appliances.

4 TOP TIPS FROM THE GAS SAFE REGISTER TO STAY SAFE
Who’s doing the work? Only employ a legal Gas Safe registered engineer when having gas work carried out in your home.
Ask for the Gas Safe ID card. Every registered gas engineer carries a Gas Safe ID card. Always ask to see the card and check their unique licence number with Gas Safe Register. The back of the card will also show which gas appliances they are qualified to work on.
In case of a gas leak. If you smell gas or think there might be a gas leak, call the free 24 hour national gas number immediately on 0800 111 999
Illegal fitters. If you suspect that someone is an illegal fitter or are worried about gas work carried out in your home, contact Gas Safe Register.
CERTIFIED GAS SAFE ENGINEERS
All our engineers are Gas Safe registered and qualified to inspect and certify all gas appliances. Through meticulous flue gas analysis and combustion analysis, our team will immediately flag any incomplete combustion or potentially dangerous scenarios, and undertake the necessary repairs as soon as possible.
If a gas appliance isn’t properly serviced or maintained, not only may it be performing poorly, but it could be highly unsafe. Faulty or damaged equipment may emit lethal carbon monoxide gas (CO), putting your family or tenants at serious risk.
ANNUAL GAS SAFETY INSPECTION – A LEGAL REQUIREMENT FOR LANDLORDS
Gas safety inspections are a legal requirement for landlords. Each appliance in your rental property must have an up-to-date Landlords Gas Safety Certificate CP12. There’s just too much at stake to miss an inspection, especially as tenants may easily become complacent or be unaware of the danger of faulty gas appliances.
