BOILER FAULT

If you think your boiler isn’t working properly, first check to see if the pilot light is on and, if you have a combi boiler, check that the pressure is between 1 and 2. The instruction manual will tell you how to re-light the pilot and re-set the pressure if you suspect this is the problem.

If you require further assistance please contact ACE Property, on the next working day. If there is a gas or water leak from the boiler, refer to the guidance above and call ACE Property immediately.
