High Efficiency Condensing Boilers: As of April 2005, the government has insisted that all new gas boilers shall be high efficiency models. This is to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. With high and rising energy bills installing these boilers will save you money.

These boilers are called condensing boilers as they recover a lot of otherwise wasted heat by using the hot flue gases to preheat the return primary water in the system.

This heat recovery means that the invisible water vapor in the combustion gases is condensed back into water, which creates a plume of water vapor (like a cloud). Heat efficiency of these boilers is rated at 90-91% efficiency. These boilers reduce gas bills by up to 30%.

Should I repair or replace my boiler?

At some stage, all Gas boilers suffer corrosion and wear, leading to eventual failure. If there are several faults on an old boiler or a fault requires expensive work and parts, we sometimes recommend installing a new boiler.

We cannot guarantee replacement parts to old boilers will fix the problem permanently, often when boilers start going wrong everything starts to go and it costs more to replace the parts than go for a new boiler.

Our fully qualified Gas Safe central heating engineers will advise you on the best possible course of action and will prepare a competitive quote for any domestic or commercial Gas boiler installation

1st Call offer qualified Gas Safe engineers.

All manufactures recommend that your boiler should be serviced once a year. Our gas safe qualified engineers perform very thorough services on all types of boilers. We take pride in our work and perform each service to the highest standard. Not only will the boiler benefit from being cleaned during the service, it will give you added peace of mine knowing it is safe. All boilers benefit from a service whether they are old boilers with pilot lights to more recent condensing boilers (they regularly need their condense trap cleaned out, that is done with the service).
