During the winter days if something unexpected happens with your central heating you will be in big trouble. First, you won’t have any hot water, then all of the radiators will be cold meaning you will be left with an icy cold home and the only solution will be to use electricity to warm yourself up or just cover yourself up with blankets.
Heating on electricity might be expensive, it depends on the size of your home. Covering yourself with blankets is not so effective solution, as you won’t be able to move freely or perform any normal activity.
The only solution is to fix the issue by yourself or simply call a professional to deal with the problem.
In order to fix something, you must know the source or the cause of the issue.
These are the most common heating problems people face and how to solve them.

The first thing to do is to simply check the valves on either side of the radiator, and check the control of the flow of water through the radiator.
If this doesn’t solve the issue then it could be a buildup limescale and you would have to descale the system.
In general, water is related to all of the issues.

Solution: If loud noises are coming from the boiler then you definitely need to professional help. Before you call a professional to deal with the problem you can check the thermostat and see if it’s too high and is overheating the water in the boiler.
