When we carry out a quotation visit we check the property to decide what would be the best type of boiler which would suit the property and demand, this ensures that we fit the most efficient heating system that will benefit the customer.
We only fit boilers from the leading manufacturers which Guarantees very little call outs and faults with the products, in the event of faults parts can be sourced very quickly and at a more acceptable price than most other boiler manufacturers, the recommended boilers we supply and fit are as follows:
A combi boiler (or combination) heats water whenever a hot tap or shower is turned on, removing the need to find space for a tank in the loft or the risk of a storage cylinder running cold. Water is fed from the mains so the water pressure is generally better than with traditional boilers.
Combi boilers are now the most popular type of boiler for gas central heating and domestic hot water production in the UK. Reliable, durable, convenient and easy to install, gas combi boilers are also economical to run. They produce an endless stream of hot water, whenever it is needed and only when it is needed
Heat only boilers are used when storage hot water is required, this will usually be used in larger properties with 2 or more bathrooms/en-suites. These type of boilers are more traditional and will also require a hot water cylinder to store hot water and a cold water storage tank to feed the hot water cylinder.
These boilers can also be used with unvented hot water tanks when higher hot and cold water pressures are required, these types of systems are most common with new build house types
Much like a conventional boiler, a system boiler operates using stored hot water. However, there are important differences between the two.
A system boiler contains many major components of the heating and hot water system already built in. This allows installation that is not only faster, but easier, tidier and more efficient. Unlike a regular boiler, a system boiler pumps the hot water straight through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, reducing the amount of time it takes for the dwelling to heat up and as such, reducing running costs. This type of boiler does away with the need for a feed and expansion tank and combined with an unvented hot water tank there is no need for a cold water storage tank within the attic space
These systems comprise unvented cylinders, which are storage water heaters that are connected directly to the mains water supply. This dispenses with the need for water storage tanks in the roof space and results in high pressure hot and cold water to all outlets, including showers, without the need for a pump.
All boilers installed come with 5 year Warranties (Conditions Apply). We also carry out the following services:
It is essential to have a gas appliance checked and serviced on an annual basis, this ensures that the boiler is working at its most efficient and more importantly that the boiler does not present a danger from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
As a Landlord you are required to ensure that all gas appliances and flues within the property are checked and maintained to ensure that they do not present any hazards to the tenants, these checks must be carried out by a qualified Gas Safe Registered Engineer.Discounts on 5 or more Landlords Gas Safety Checks.
We offer Gas Maintenance Contracts from as little as £14.00 per month, T&C's Apply.
We carry out repairs on all the boiler manufacturers and include a same day visit on the day of the call.
We can fit new controls to existing heating systems to get the best out of your system, this can include fitting zone valves, room and cylinder thermostats and new programmer/timers, this will also ensure that your system complies with current building regulations.
The build up of sludge in hot water central heating systems is inevitable, no matter what fuel source is used. Over a period of time this sludge can block pipes and prevent the radiators from distributing heat around your house.
Sludge can also seriously affect the efficiency of your central heating system; it will lead to higher fuel bills and can bring forward the time when you need to replace some or all of the system.
The solution? remove sludge and scale by power flushing your central heating system. Power flushing starts at around £225 for the whole system. Please call for a more accurate quotation
We can replace old in-efficient radiators which could be contributing to higher fuel bills, this can be with the more traditional style radiators or from the vast range of designer radiators on the market.
