Lack of warm water suggests you have a faulty boiler

If your shower keeps producing cold water, it doesn't necessarily mean that your boiler is broken, but whatever the cause, leave it to our Gas Safe engineers here at Chalmers Gas to assess the problem. 

Strange noises coming from your boiler?

Boilers that produce unusual noises are often on the verge of a breakdown. If you have noticed sounds such as loud banging, gurgling or kettling noises then it might be time to get in touch with our plumbers in Glasgow. Unusual noises coming from the boiler are often a sign that there is trapped air in the system. 

Any strange smells coming from your boiler?

If when you stand next to the boiler you can smell something strange, get in touch with our plumbers in Glasgow so we can take a look at your boiler ASAP. The smell might be a result of a gas leak; which can be especially dangerous if the gas that's leaking is carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is odourless, transparent, and lethal, making it a real danger to anybody living within the vicinity.

Cold spots on your radiators? 

You may have also noticed that your radiators are no longer as warm as they used to be. As we previously mentioned with the cold water sign, this doesn't necessarily mean that your boiler is broken, rather it might just be a case that your radiators need to be bled. However, if after you've tried bleeding your radiators, they are still taking too long to heat up, then this could well be a sign that then suggests the fault is much larger than expected and is likely as a result of a faulty boiler.


Does your boiler keep on turning off without you doing so?

This one is very straightforward. If you've noticed that your boiler keeps on turning off on its own without warming your home or water to the correct temperature, then it's evident that your boiler probably isn't in the best of conditions. It could be a problem with the electrical circuit, but if the same problem is not happening to any other appliances, then there is a good chance that your boiler is faulty.
