    How to tell if your boiler is faulty


    Faulty boilers in an office block can increase the risk of accidents at work. All business owners should comply with the relevant health and safety guidelines to protect their workforce from work injuries and work-related  illnesses. If you have a boiler at home, it’’s also essential to make sure it’’s in good working order. If your boiler is faulty, it can have serious implications for your health.

    How to tell if your boiler is faulty

    If your boiler is faulty, there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is often referred to as a silent killer, as it is an odourless, colourless gas.

    Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include severe headaches, lethargy and drowsiness and breathing difficulties. Carbon monoxide poisoning can also affect pets, so look out for low energy levels and changes in behaviour.

    Here are some signs to look out for if your boiler is faulty:

    • Gas flames that are orange or yellow instead of blue      
    • Strange noises
    • Soot stains and black marks around the boiler
    • Flames going out or reduced power
    • Drips and leaks
    • Lack of heat or low pressure
    • Pilot light is out

    What to do if your boiler is faulty

    If your boiler is faulty at home, or the heating isn’’t working at work, seek expert help. Report any problems in the office to your manager. If you have issues at home, contact an engineer and arrange for them to come and have a look. Never attempt your own boiler repairs, as this carries a risk of electrical injuries.
