These services will help us to identify
your needs and offer you a tailor made installation,
full central heating and hot water system.
* A new condensing boiler
* System update including new energy saving controls
* New Radiators
* New high performance quick recovery cylinder
* Under Floor Heating
* Solar Hot Water
All work is supervised by experienced
personnel and all installations are carried out by our
own Gas Safety Register Registered engineers, trained and qualified
in Energy Efficiency and the New Condensing Boiler Building
Our aim will and always has been to ensure customer
satisfaction from the moment of contact to the completion
From the 1st April 2005 new changes
were made to the Building Regulations for England
and Wales, they stipulate that:
With very few exceptions all new
domestic boilers installed must be high efficiency condensing
boilers, rated Band A or B using the SEDBUK rating scale.
SEDBUK is the Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers
in the UK. Central heating boilers now come with an
energy label, as do other appliances such as washing
machines. Band A is the highest and most efficient,
90% and above.
All new gas installations must satisfy new minimum
requirements for heating control.
Installers must be Gas Safety Register Registered, trained and qualified
in energy efficiency and the new condensing boiler
On completion of the new installation you will receive
a certificate from your local authority confirming
that the boiler complies with the new Building Regulations.
This document is important should you ever decide
to sell your property.
What is a High Efficiency
The term "condensing" or high
efficiency applies to the technology, which is used,
so the boiler uses less fuel for more heat. By recovering
and using heat the best high efficiency boilers can
operate with seasonal efficiencies in excess of 90%.
These boilers are given a SEDBUK rating of A.
In simple terms for every £1 of
gas you put into a condensing boiler at least 90p is
converted into heat for your system. Compare this with
your old boilers efficiency, many have a SEDBUK rating
of E, 70% and F, 75%, ONLY 70-75p of your £1 is
converted into heat for your system but some have a
rating as low G, 50%
THINK OF ALL THAT MONEY LOST OUT
OF THE FLUE
SO WHY NOT GIVE YOURSELF AN IMMEDIATE
SAVING AND INSTALL A NEW HIGH EFFICIENCY CONDENSING
Which type of Condensing
boiler is best for me?
Combination, System or Conventional.
This will depend on your property and your needs. But
with our professional advice your new boiler / installation
will meet all your hot water and heating requirements.
This has all the benefits of an instantaneous gas water
heater and conventional heating boiler, combined ( hence
the name ) into one compact unit.
The main difference is that it does not store any hot
water as it heats it directly from the incoming mains
so no need for a hot water cylinder.
This boiler can be installed almost anywhere in the
property, kitchen, garage or loft due to new fluing
options. Other advantages are no stored water in the
loft, therefore no risk of freezing pipes and the hot
water is delivered at mains pressure therefore you can
have a power shower without the need of a separate pump.
This is different to a combination boiler, firstly it
has stored water held in either a low pressure hot water
cylinder or an unvented hot water cylinder and secondly
major components like the pump are built in. The system
is pressurised, therefore no feed expansion tank required,
resulting in the radiators heating up faster and with
lower running costs it make this a very economical package.
This type of system is installed when a greater volume
of hot water is required and is more suitable for larger
properties with two or more bathrooms.
These boilers are not pressurised but just like the
system boilers incorporate a hot water cylinder. The
cylinder is fed from a cold water storage tank and there
is a separate feed expansion tank for the heating circuit,
both tanks are usually located in the loft space.
This is another system that can be used when a greater
volume of hot water is required and is more suitable
to larger properties with two or more bathrooms.
Power flushing is now recommended by all
manufacturers prior to the installation of a new boiler
to ensure a trouble free installation.
After the removal of your old boiler the
machine is temporarily connected into your system, the
high water flow rate combined with a flow reverser device
dislodges and mobilises sludge and corrosion deposits
which resist traditional system cleaning methods. Chemicals
are introduced via the machine and by isolating each
radiator individually we can ensure that not only each
radiator but the entire systems pipe work is thoroughly
