Winter can be a wonderful time of year, strolling in the crisp air snuggled under a cosy jacket then grabbing a warm cuppa. Of course, that is assuming your boiler is working, and you can defrost when you arrive home.

There are a few things that can prevent boilers from heating up. This guide will give you a few tips on troubleshooting this problem and indicating when to call a repair service.

Step 1: Don’t panic! Often the simplest solutions go unchecked. Start with a home assessment:

Does the boiler have power?

Is the gaslighting?

Newer boilers have electronic burner ignitions, making them safer for the home. If yours is malfunctioning, you will need to call us (insert thumbs up emoji)

Is there water?

If your electricity, power and gas are all working, try resetting the boiler by flicking on and off the switch.

Check the boiler controls

If your boiler is still not working after troubleshooting this list, you will need to book a boiler repairer to solve it. Luckily for you, Avid Heating has a 24hr boiler repair service and a ‘no fix, no fee’ policy.
