Emergency Boiler Repair


Having to deal with an emergency boiler repair is a nuisance that most householders will have to face at some point. Unfortunately, boilers don’t always break down between the hours of nine and five, Monday to Friday.

Emergency boiler repair can be expensive – emergency boiler engineers don’t tend to come cheap. If your boiler breaks down, you will want your heating and hot water to be restored as soon as possible – especially since the most common time for boilers to break down is in the winter months, as they are switched back on for the first time after the summer.

Before you call

Before you call an engineer to your home to carry out an emergency boiler repair, carry out some checks to make sure that you won’t be wasting your money on an out-of-hours call out that just isn’t necessary.

  • Check the power supply – your boiler may have been accidentally switched off, or you might have had a power cut. Check the switch at the wall, and also ensure that your other appliances are working before calling out an engineer.
  • Check the gas supply – be sure that the mains gas supply is still on. If you have an oil fired boiler, check that you haven’t run out of oil.
  • Check the pilot light – if this has blown out, your boiler will stop working. You can relight this yourself easily – check your boiler manual to find out how.
  • Check the boiler controls – the thermostat may have been turned too low, or the timer could have been knocked onto the wrong setting.


If none of the above bring any resolution, you should call an out-of-hours boiler engineer. Make a note of any information they might need, such as how long the boiler has been out of action for, and whether there were any problems preceding the breakdown.
