    Get the boiler serviced. Often, system components pick up dirt and dust to get clogged up/ become sluggish. Boiler service entails cleaning, setting and testing that restore system operation to 'factory setting'. If fault still persists, faulty component can be replaced.

    DP who replied above, covers your area.

    If you speak to him nicely there is always a possibility that he will accept a forward dated cheque with a guarantee card. We often do that for our clients who have a cash flow problem as it gets their boiler sorted out without waiting.

    Unfortunately the cost of card acceptance is very high on a small turnover and we would have to pass that on as an addition and all our clients would prefer to avoid that little extra.
