Central Heating Sytems & Repairs

Is your heating system temperamental, does your header tank bang and make noises, are your radiators cold or need constant bleeding of air. We can help. These problems are quite common and it doesn’t necessarily mean your system is completely ruined and you need a new one. There are a number of reasons a central heating system can degrade. Our job is to analyse the problems and diagnose the faults so as we can recommend to you the best solutions possible in moving forward with its repairs to get your heating running again to its maximum potential.

Power Flushing

The water circulation in a heating systems can deteriorate over time leading to radiators only getting lukewarm, an increase in noise, poor hot water, and a significant build up of sludge. By performing a task called power flushing and descaling can sometimes either rectify the problem or greatly relieve it so you get a significant improvement.

Benefits from power flushing your system are:

  • Reduced gas bill
  • Prolong the life of your heating system
  • Increase the efficiency by 25% of your central heating
  • Radiators get hotter
  • The system heat up quicker
  • Boiler is quieter
  • Black sludge is removed
  • Less breakdowns being a more reliable system
Radiator Power Flushing

It is a good idea to have this procedure carried out once a year even if you do not have any problems. It will clean and descale you system and by keeping your system free from scaling will maintain it has a longer life and reduce your bills.

When Selecting an Oil Boiler

Oil boilers are a fantastic solution to heat your home especially if you live out in the sticks where there is no piped natural gas supply. The regulations regarding the storage of oil are not as strict as storing gas. You monitor you tank and when you have a delivery of oil ti fill your tank you are aware of the cost for the oil so there is no shock at the end of the year in receiving an unexpected high-energy bill. Another worry is theft. There are plenty of dishonest people out there who steel oil from tanks in the dead of the night so you need a good security system or dogs outside. Oil boilers are common in farmhouse, farms and barn conversions.
