Boiler repairs in Harpenden [FAQs]

How do I know whether I need to call a professional if my boiler stops working?

The short answer to this question is, most times, you won't know! Although this answer might not be exactly what you're looking for, we have to preface it by explaining that boilers are often quite complex, and not all brands and models are the same. 

Sometimes though, it is more obvious what’s wrong, for example, when your boiler is on but your radiators aren’t heating, this could mean that there is an issue with your thermostat. Or if your boiler isn’t working in the winter as there are freezing temperatures outside, it is possible that you could have a frozen condensate pipe. Whatever it is, our experienced heating engineers at Vital Plumbers Ltd can get to the bottom of it and do their best to get it sorted.

Why should I trust you if my boiler in Harpenden breaks down?

Our team is fully insured to work in your home and we don’t charge call-out fees to Harpenden, so you can rely on us for boiler repairs.

How long will it take you to fix my boiler?

Most boilers can be repaired between 1 and 2 hours, but boiler repairs may require new parts in some cases. We always try to keep commonly needed parts in our van so that you aren't made to wait, but in some cases where your boiler's brand is a model that we don't have the correct parts for, the repair could take longer. If a part has to be ordered or collected, it is hard to predict how long this may take, but our heating engineers will always ensure that we keep you in the loop and give you an approximate timescale for fully completing the repair. 

Are all of your staff Gas Safe registered?

YES, and anyone who works on your boiler should be. It is hugely important that anyone you employ to work on your boiler has Gas Safe registration to ensure the safety of all those living in your home.
