combi conundrum.

Halstead combi approx 5 years old, has been a good old boiler, except that just lately it's happened a couple of times that after switching it on from cold, the unit will just sit there dormant... and then after approx half an hour or so, will suddenly burst into action. any ideas or pointers as to what might be the culprit, greatly appreciated.
