With every boiler service you get:

What heating system do you have?

Heat only boiler: This is the traditional system where you have a boiler with a hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard . you will normally have a central heating pump along with a 3 port valve or two 2 port valves

Combi boiler: This system is a 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 include 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.

System boiler: This system is like the traditional system where the 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. This system is the main pressure so no need for cold water tanks in the loft space.

What is a condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers are water heaters fueled by gas or oil. They achieve high efficiency (typically greater than 90% on the higher heating value) by using waste heat in the flue gases to pre-heat cold water entering the boiler. Water vapour produced during combustion condenses into liquid form, which leaves the system via a drain. In many countries, the use of condensing boilers is compulsory or encouraged with financial incentives.

What is a power flush?

A power flush is a cleansing process which aims to remove deposits of sludge, rust and any other debris from your central heating system. These contaminants, if left, can seriously affect the efficiency of a heating system and in severe cases a powerflush is the only option available. We install a new magnetic filter if required with all power flushes we carry out.

Signs that you might need a power flush

There are a number of signs to look for before deciding to go ahead with the powerflush process. These include cold areas on radiators, excessive noise from the boiler or the heating system pump, discoloured water when you bleed the radiators and the slow warming of the heating system. You might also notice the tap water getting cloudy, especially if there is a build up of limescale as well.
