Most common Intergas Boiler Faults

While Intergas boilers are extremely reliable appliances, Intergas boilers only have 2 common faults. #1, One being a common fault that every boiler has and that is a blocked condensate pipe. #2, Two is an error code 1 on the display which is very simple to fix and you shouldn't need one of our gas engineers.

The Intergas error code 1 fix:

The reason why your intergas boiler is showing a error code 1 (Overheating) on the display is because of air in the system. Having air in the system can prevent water from circulating around the heating system. To remove this air, you need to bleed your radiators one by one. Or get one of our boiler repair experts to help out.

Intergas boiler warranties

Depending on what boiler model you have, intergas boiler warranties are between 3 and 10 years. If your boiler was installed by one of our gas engineers we can extend the boiler warranty of up tp 12 years.
