Why are there noises coming from my boiler?

Usually, boilers are known to make noises on a daily basis, however, you need to be able to understand that some sounds indicate there is an issue that needs looking into.

Types of boiler noises

Clunking and Banging

This kind of noise usually means there is a build-up of limescale in your heating system, which could lead to blockages. If this is not looked into, it could lead to increasing the pressure in your boiler, making it unsafe for you and your family.

Whistling Noises

Whistling noises are usually triggered by trapped air in your heating system. You can simply fix this by bleeding your radiators if they have cold spots. If this still does not fix the issue, get in touch with a qualified heating engineer to carry out further inspections.

Gurgling Noises

Similar to whistling noises, gurgling noises are also caused by trapped air. It could also be caused by a blockage in the heating system or a frozen condensate pipe. If your boiler is showing these signs, then you need to make sure to get an engineer to carry out a powerflushing service.
