Services

We offer the following services and system installations to both homes and businesses. If you have any queries please contact us today.

Full Heating Systems, Domestic and Commercial

Full heating systems fitted to the requirements of your home or business. As well as the fitting of a new boiler, this can include the full installation of new radiators, distribution pipework and system controls.

Boiler repairs and annual servicing is also available at competitive prices.

Sealed / Pressurised Heating Systems

As the name suggests this is a ‘closed’ system, eliminating the need of an expansion (header) tank in the roof space. More commonly, these are installed in conjunction with a ‘pressurised hot water cylinder’ see note, though this is not a requirement. A sealed system also eliminates the problem of air entering the system thus preventing corrosion and sludge build up.

Systems are available that can offer pressurised heating but still use conventional non-pressurised hot water. Alternatively, the system can be combined to offer a pressurised heating and hot water system.

Underfloor Heating Systems

Quality wet underflooring heating systems installed for both ceramic tile (or stone) floors and wood (or laminate) flooring.

Insulation boards are installed under the pipe coils to reduce heat loss into the un-insulated base flooring of the building. These can be installed by the builder or by ourselves.

These systems can be installed in wet areas, such as bathrooms and shower rooms, and are ideal to both heat the room and warm the floor for comfort.

Please note that to use the wet underfloor heating as the primary source of heat in a room, the construction of the room must include good levels of insulation. If this is not possible, it can still be used as floor warming with supplementary heating such as radiators or heated towel rails.

Pressurised Hot Water Systems

In an unvented system the incoming cold mains water typically enters a pressurised hot water cylinder which is heated indirectly by means of a primary heat exchanger, within the cylinder, this being heated by the central heating boiler. The domestic hot water is then forced out by the pressure of the water main, to the outlets, when demand is made: Hence – mains pressure hot water.

Any system utilising a mains pressure supply is only as good as the supply entering the property. A product may boast 30 litres a minute flow rate @ 3 bar – but if your property’s incoming supply only provides 15 litres a minute @ 1 bar then this is the best you will achieve.

Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar Panels or Solar Collectors are fitted to the roof with south facing being the optimum position. They collect heat from the sun’s radiation, even on a cloudy day.

There are two types of collector:

Flat Plate Collectors which comprise of an absorber plate with a glass cover.

Evacuated Tubes that consist of a row of glass tubes each of which contain an absorber plate feeding into a manifold used to transport the heating transfer fluid.

Choosing a system suitable to your needs requires consideration of a range of factors including the area of the south facing roof available, the existing water heating system, and your budget.

A twin coil hot water cylinder is required to couple up to the solar collection via connecting pipework. The bottom coil in the cylinder is heated via the solar collectors and the upper coil is heated via the central heating boiler. Controls ensure that when the solar is available, the heating boiler remains off thus utilising free solar energy as long as possible.

Power Flushing

It is good practice and a requirement of most boiler manufacturers, to ‘power flush’ an existing system prior to the installation of a new boiler. This is to remove harmful deposits from the system which could damage the new boiler.

Heat Pumps

The desire for warmth in our homes is as strong today as it always has been. However, these day, when we consider heating issues, we take into account the effect on the environment as well as how economic a particular system can be.

The development of modern heat pump technology proves that both can become ideal partners. Heat pumps exploit latent energies in the air, water and in the ground beneath our heat. They very cleverly convert this energy into usable energy, namely heat.

For more than 30 years, manufacturers have been investing time and effort into the development of highly efficient heat pumps.

Heat pumps help to protect the environment whilst saving you money. The ratio of heating energy gained to energy spent is quite impressive. For example, 1Kw of electrical power can yield – depending on energy source – up to 4kWh of useful energy. These factors can and do vary depending on the type of heat pump installed, be it ground or air and also the design of the heating system.
