At Leaks & Locks we have been installing, repairing and servicing gas boilers and warm air heaters in both domestic and commercial properties for over 11 years.

In that time boilers have changed from being a lump of steel in the corner that required little or no care and attention, to something that needs regular checks to ensure it is operating at its maximum efficiency.

Servicing and Repairs

Today’s boilers have on-board computers that monitor fuel consumption, flue gas emissions and even how many times the fan rotates in a second and how fast the water is heated.

We use this feedback when servicing a boiler to fine tune the operation of your boiler.

We also check the quality of the water in the system as this is vital to the efficient operation of your hot water and heating systems. Indeed, dirty water will damage the boiler internally, increasing the running costs and causing breakdown.

If the water in your system is found to be dirty we can carry out a power flush which will stop further damage to your system, and increase energy efficiency by removing the magnetite from the walls of the radiators.

We repair and service all makes of boilers and warm air heaters including:



Baxi Potterton


Gledhill Pulsacoils




Johnson & Starley


New installations

We also install new boilers and warm air heaters manufactured by all of today’s leading brands, however if you don’t have a preference, we’d recommend choosing Vaillant boilers who offer a 10 year guarantee as standard.
