It’s natural to wonder why your central heating system is leaking when you find out this is happening.

As with gas leak repairs, it’s never advised to repair a water leak by yourself. Always call an engineer and wait for them to deal with the issue rather than take things into your own hands.

There are many reasons your central heating system could be leaking, but most issues can be split into three categories; problems with boiler componentsproblems with boiler installation or problems with central heating pipes. More often than not, if you notice your boiler leaking water from the bottom, this could indicate issues with how the boiler was installed. Perhaps whoever installed it didn’t connect the pipes correctly or use a strong enough seal, and water started to leak through after a while.

However, if you notice your boiler leaking water from the inside, then it might point to internal issues with the boiler itself. There could be a broken valve, corrosion on the inside, and many other problems.

Regardless of what’s causing the leak, as leaking boiler repairs experts, we can deal with any issues that present themselves, and have your boiler fixed and functioning properly in no time.

Central Heating Leaking FAQs

Leak detection is an accurate form of finding water leaks in your central heating sustem. Utilising advanced equipment, leak detection can give an accuracy rate of upwards of 90%. This high accuracy rate means that minimal damage will be inflicted upon your home and that you can get the plumbing issue sorted as quickly as possible.

To check for any leaks, ensure that the radiator is on. Water is only pumped into the radiator once it has warmed up and when it does, you’ll notice drops of water seeping from the radiator.

In 99% of cases, a boiler losing pressure means a leak — it’s as simple as that. Unless the dial sits at 0 even when topped up (which could be a sign of a faulty pressure gauge), there’s a leak somewhere – even if you can’t see it in the boiler or the heating system.
