Our central heating service is second to none. All our central heating systems are installed to all building and oil regulations. Our central heating systems are fully guaranteed and fitted by OFTEC registered engineers. You will be issued a fully complete CD11 on completion, this certifies that the system is installed to Part L of the building regulations.
We install three types of condensing boiler systems:
A Combination boiler is two appliances in one – a pressurised central heating boiler and an instantaneous water heater.
Which boiler should I choose?
Each type delivers all the benefits of high-efficiency technology, but which one you choose will depend on several factors, including your property, your lifestyle and the professional advice of an OFTEC registered installer for oil-fired boilers.
What is a system boiler?
Secondly, the hot water is pumped from the boiler through the 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.
What is a combination boiler?
The major difference between a combi and any other type of boiler is that a combi eliminates the need to store hot water – so no hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard. It is both a high-efficiency water heater and central heating boiler, combined (hence the name) within one compact unit which usually sits in the kitchen or utility room, or sometimes in the airing cupboard. The space savings result from the fact there is no hot water storage cylinder, cold water storage cistern or other familiar components of a regular (conventional) heating system.
The further benefits of this are a significant saving on hot water costs, and the fact that hot water is delivered through your taps or shower at mains pressure. So you can enjoy powerful showering* without the need for a pump. Another combi 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.
*a thermostatically-controlled shower safeguards against sudden changes in water temperature.
What is a conventional boiler?
Here are a few examples and guidelines to think about and help you identify the type of condensing boiler most likely suited to your needs:
- You want to use your loft space for a room conversion or other purpose
- You live in a flat or bungalow (have very little or no
- Your home has more than 2 bathrooms
- Your main water pressure is low
- You want to replace an old boiler to improve an existing conventional central heating system
- There is a need to have hot water available on tap without waiting for it to heat up
- REGULAR or SYSTEM boiler
- REGULAR or SYSTEM boiler
- REGULAR, SYSTEM or COMBI
