Regular maintenance on your heating system pays for itself with improved energy efficiency, which saves money on utility bills, and a longer-lasting heating system. A yearly service by a licensed and accredited heating engineer can help not only reduce your monthly energy bill but also help prevent earlier-than-normal system breakdowns. Many manufacturers insist on an annual service by an accredited installer to ensure that your warranty or guarantee for the boiler remains valid!
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels including gas, oil, wood and coal. Caron-based fuels are safe to use - it is only when the fuel does not burn properly that excess CO is produced, which is poisonous. It's essential that you have a working CO detector in your property. Contact us for more information.
Power flushing is the most efficient and effective method of cleaning a central heating system. The principle is to create a powerful fresh water flow under controlled conditions to remove debris from the system. By connecting the powerflushing unit to the heating circuit in place of the system pump, boiler or radiator the system can be thoroughly cleaned of limescale and corrosion debris. Benefits of a power flush include:
improving radiator performance and heat output
extending the life of the boiler
avoiding costly repairs and breakdowns
reducing fuel bills and save money
We have an efficient power flush unit with an experienced team - contact us for more details.
Have you heard strange noises from your heating system? Has your home been taking longer to cool down or heat up? Have you had a sudden increase in energy bills? These are signs that there may be issues with your central heating system and the sooner that you establish the cause of the problem the better. Contact us and we can arrange a qualified heating engineer to attend your property to diagnose the fault and resolve the problems.
A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however, the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself, making it quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft, so it can be an option in a home with little or no loft space or where the space is earmarked for a conversion.
Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.

There are a number of considerations to take account of to improve the accessibility to your bathroom or shower room - in some cases there are legal requirements, or it may only be you would like a bathroom design which makes life easier for someone who lives with you or visits your property regularly. For example, a level access shower is a shower area that doesn't have a step or lip in any way to enter the showering area. This means that people with all levels of mobility can enter the shower easily and safely from children through to grandparents and wheelchair users alike.
We are very experienced in the design and installation of bathrooms and shower rooms of this nature and can easily arrange a requirements and survey visit to your or your family member's property and provide you with a pricing schedule for your consideration.
