These services will help us to identify your needs and offer you a tailor made installation, albeit a:

* New 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 Regulations.

Our aim will and always has been to ensure customer satisfaction from the moment of contact to the completion of work.

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 Building Regulations.

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 Condensing Boiler?

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 BOILER

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.

Combination Boilers

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.

System Boilers

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.

Conventional Boilers

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

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 cleaned.
