Boiler Installation & Repairs:
We specialize in the installation of energy efficient boilers and central heating systems for both domestic and commercial properties, across Coventry, Warwickshire and the West Midlands.
According to a recent study conducted by the Energy Saving Trust many households and commercial offices could save on average £225 on their gas bills by simply installing a new energy efficient boiler.
The first thing you should do is to understand the differences in boilers available on the market, then to pick the one that suits your individual needs.
Having been established for over 25 years we know a thing or two about installing boilers to maximise the amount you save on your bills and more importantly keeping your home warm.
What type of Boiler do I need?
Central Heating is a means of heating your home from one central source – a boiler. The boiler heats water which is then ‘pumped’ to where it’s needed e.g. radiators and a hot water cylinder (if you have a conventional boiler).
You can then operate the system via a set of controls which usually include a clock or programmer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves.
These ensure the heating and hot water operate at a suitable time and temperature to ensure your comfort and reduce wastage.
Conventional Condensing Boiler:
A conventional boiler system has two water tanks in the loft, a large ‘cold water storage tank’ and a small ‘feed and expansion tank’. The ‘cold water storage tank’ draws water from the cold water mains to refill. Water from the storage tank feeds cold water down to the cylinder (normally in the airing cupboard). The condensing central heating boiler will heat the cylinder and converts cold water to hot; this then enables the cylinder to release gallons of hot water to taps throughout the house. A pump will circulate the hot water via the pipes and in turn heat the radiators.
Instant hot water.
Faster flow rates.
Multiple tap operation.
Use of an airing cupboard.
Backup electric hot water heating (Immersion).
Heating and hot water together.
Compatible with solar.
More space required.
Tanks taking up space in the loft.
Time required for cylinder to heat.
Limited amount of hot water.
Condensing Combination Boiler:
Combi boilers are economical to run and are able to produce an endless supply of hot water, although the flow may be limited if other taps are running at the same time.
The combi boiler delivers hot water at the same speed as your cold taps.
As the combi boiler heats water instantly, direct from the mains, there is no need to wait for a storage cylinder to heat up, and you won’t run out of hot water.
There’s also no need for cold water storage tank so it’s perfect if you are limited on space.
A pump will circulate the hot water via the pipes and in turn heat the radiators.
The ideal space saving solution.
No need for a hot water cylinder or water tank.
Heats up hot water as and when you need it.
Delivers hot water at a mains pressure.
Slower flow rates.
One tap operation.
No backup electric hot water heating (Immersion).
No airing cupboard.
Dependant on mains pressure.
