Have you noticed that your boiler has lost pressure? The good news is that this is a common issue. It’s natural for a boiler to lose pressure over time. Usually, this can be fixed by using the filling loop that is located underneath the boiler. You can open the black taps here to increase the pressure.

However, if you notice that your boiler is constantly losing pressure this might point to a more significant issue. So, what problems could you be facing and how can you fix them?

A Boiler Fault

It’s possible that the problem is due to an issue with the boiler itself. This can be an internal component or a leak. Whether you need a repair or replacement will depend on the extent of the damage. That’s why it’s best to call a Gas Safe registered engineer to check for issues here and assess your boiler. They’ll recommend the right action to take. You can check for a leak by removing the cover of the boiler, but it’s possible the main problem is inside.

Other Issues

It’s also possible that the problem is caused by a leak somewhere else in the heating system. To identify this, you’ll need to trace the pipes around your home to check for a leak. Usually, a leak will occur in bends or joints as this is where the weak spots are likely to be.

We hope this helps you understand some of the reasons why you might be having issues with your boiler pressure.
