First we recommend turning off the water at the main source. This will stop more water from leaking and causing damage to your property. Next, try to collect the leaking water in any way you can for e.g. a bucket or container. This will prevent further water damage. Then give us a call for further assistance.
If you notice a water leak outside where a significant amount of water is running then visit NI Water to report the leak.
If you have hot water but no heating and your boiler seems to be working then the problem is either down to the settings on your central heating system and boiler. Or perhaps one of the components on the boiler (for e.g. the motorised diverter valve) is broken.
The first step is to try and get your central heating back on by adjusting the settings. As silly as it sounds check that the thermostat is turned up properly and that the timers are set properly. You also will want to check what the pressure of the boiler is. If the water pressure is too low then you may have to repressurise your boiler. You could try pressing the reset button or turn off the power and wait 30 seconds and turn back on. We do not recommend removing any casing or covers of the boiler.
If that fails then you will likely need to replace the valve. This is something that we can help you with, however we suggest giving us a call first so that we can troubleshoot the problem for you.
First, check the hot water thermostat and ensure that it has not been turned down. If the electricity supply has been interupted then you may have to reset the boiler or simply just reset the time.
You may have a problem with low flow rates. This is a common problem with combi boilers in the colder weather. You just have to run the hot tap at a slower rate than normal and it should work ok.
You may have a faulty diverter valve. If this is the case then you most likely will require a boiler servicing. If this is the case or you are unsure of what the problem is do not hesitate to give us a call.
If one of your radiators is not working while the rest are working first check that the radiator is actually turned on at the valve. If the valve is on then it is possible that your radiator is air locked. This happens when air becomes trapped inside water pipes and then collects in the radiators leading to a partial or complete blockage.
To fix this you will need to bleed the radiator. If you have a bleed key, then you can do this yourself. If not you can pick one up from the hardware store or we can bleed the radiator for you. You will notice the bleed valve at the top of the radiator. Use the bleed key to turn the valve about a quarter of a turn anti clock wise. You will hear a hissing noise which is the air escaping. When the hissing stops and a dribble of water appears close the valve tightly. We recommend using a container and a towel to collect any excess water.
