Boiler Installation

BOILER INSTALLATIONS

Boilers account for around 55% of what you spend in a year on energy bills,  so having an efficient boiler makes a big difference.

Condensing boilers convert over 90% of the fuel they use into useful heat compared to around 60% from older, conventional boilers.

Replacing an old gas boiler with no controls, with an A-rated high-efficiency condensing boiler and full set of heating controls will significantly cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions – and could save you a minimum of 30% per year on your home heating bills, which represents a big saving over the lifetime of your boiler.

Depending on your heating and hot water demand there are different types of condensing boilers that are available. We can supply and fit all types of gas condensing boilers from the leading manufacturers, Worcester, Vaillant. Glowworm, Ideal, Baxi and Potterton.

We offer a full 5 year guarantee on Worcester boilers!

If you are considering replacing an old boiler please contact us for a no obligation estimate.

Information of different types of boilers:

WHAT IS A COMBI BOILER?

A combi boiler provides heating and hot water directly from the boiler.
Here’s an example of a central heating and hot water system layout using a combi boiler:

A combi (or combination) boiler is an ingenious space-saving idea, and an increasingly popular choice in UK homes. In fact, combis now account for well over half of all the new domestic boilers installed in Britain every year.

A combi boiler is both a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, combined (hence the name) within one compact unit. Therefore, no separate hot water cylinder is required, offering space saving within the property.

Further benefits of a combi boiler includes hot water being delivered through your taps or shower at mains pressure. So you can enjoy powerful showering without the need for a pump.

Another combi boiler benefit is that it can generally save you money on installation time and costs, since no tank in the roof space means less pipe work and a shorter installation time.

WHAT IS A REGULAR BOILER?

Regular boilers (also known as conventional boilers) heat your central heating system directly and produce hot water for your cylinder.
Here’s an example of a central heating and hot water system layout using a regular boiler:

Regular Boiler

If you are replacing an older model of boiler, the chances are that you will have a regular (also known as conventional) boiler.

A typical regular boiler system incorporates a boiler, extended controls, a hot water cylinder which is often fed by a cold water storage cistern located in the loft and a feed and expansion cistern – also located in the loft.

WHAT IS A SYSTEM BOILER?

A system boiler heats your central heating system directly and produces hot water for your cylinder.
An example of a central heating and hot water system layout using a system boiler with an open-vented hot water cylinder:

System Boiler Layout

A system boiler, just like a regular (conventional) boiler works on the principle of stored hot water. However, a system boiler differs from a regular boiler in some important respects.

Firstly, many of the major individual components of the heating and hot water system are built into a system boiler, which means that installation is quicker, neater, easier and more efficient.

Secondly, the hot water is pumped from the system boiler through the heating system to the radiators and hot water cylinder, resulting in a fast response and more economical running costs. The system boiler removes the need for a feed and expansion cistern.
