What should I check first?

When you first encounter issues, it’s important to isolate as many common problems as possible. This means working through the following checklist.

1. Check your gas, water, and electricity supplies: Taking the time to check that these are still in place can save you a lot of frustration in the long run. An outage can be frustrating but checking online can give you an update on the action your provider is taking.

2. Check your boiler: If your system is not working, toggle your reset switch to see if it knocks the system back into action again. If you have been affected by a power cut, this could rest your system back to factory settings and may need addressed.

3. Check your clock or timer: Easily overlooked, take a moment to confirm that your system is set to the right time and that it hasn’t been accidentally tampered with.

What if I have a gas boiler?

Working with a gas boiler system also carries a number of potential complications. If this is relevant to your property, take the time to work through the list below.

1. Check your Pilot: If you choose to contact a provider, the first question they will ask is to check your pilot light. If this has gone out, following your instructions on how to light it. If it refuses to light, this could be an issue with the thermocouple and should be detailed to your provided.

2. Check your appliances: If other appliances in your home use gas, take a moment to check if they are still working. If they are affected as well, it is likely an issue with the system and you should contact a professional provider.

3. Check your pressure relief valve: Your pressure relief valve can be located by checking the physical documentation for your boiler or looking online. If your pressure is low, the valve may need replaced.
