Your expansion vessel needs topping up or replacing. As the gauge rises around to 2.5 bar with the heating on, check the pipe outside (copper), this usually goes straight down or curls back to the wall.

This is also very much depends on how its installed, as well, some are better than others. But to this date I have never known a combi to go more than 8 years without something needing replacing. Most do not see the 15 year mark, except well installed looked after systems (rare)
