Gas leaks can be caused by several problems and these may be in your boiler or in the system that leads to you boiler. A few common reasons include:
- A damaged valve
- Loose fittings in the hose leading to your boiler

Boiler leaks may not pose as significant a problem as gas leaks but you should not underestimate this issue. Boilers leaks for many reasons, some simple and others complicated. Your boiler may simply be leaking water due to a loose fitting. The ‘leak’ may also be discharge from the pressure release valve and this is quite normal unless you notice more than the usual amount of water. A higher than normal leakage from your boiler could be a warning that your pressure settings are off. If the water is leaking from the body of your boiler, it could mean that the boiler is damaged. Such a boiler may not be able to withstand the pressure of the steam inside and this can lead to an explosion. Call our experts to take care of such eventualities today.
