I have a hot water tank at the moment; can I replace this with just a boiler?
Yes this is called a boiler conversion, meaning we remove the old water tank and existing boiler and replace with a pressurised heating system and combination boiler. This is the most common boiler installation and provides you with a much more efficient heating solution. This service would also include a power flush to remove any sludge build up in radiators and pipe work prior to installing the new system.
Why should I consider replacing my boiler?
Most people only consider replacing their boiler when it breaks down, however there are still a number of benefits to upgrading to a modern high efficiency gas boiler.
How often should I get my boiler serviced?
Your boiler should be serviced annually; you must carry out an annual service for your manufactures warranty to be valid.

Where can I put my new boiler?
You can safely install a boiler in most rooms or even the loft; however you need to consider the following: Your boiler should be installed inside a building and be fitted to a suitable wall which is strong enough to take its weight when full of water. The boiler flue must be able to pass to the outside, either through an outside wall or roof. As well as the flue, you must consider where the condensate pipe that takes away the liquid that condenses as the gasses cool inside the boiler. Our heat only boilers don’t require a pump overrun or permanent live meaning you don’t need a power supply to the boiler. If you want your new boiler located in a bathroom you must consider the distance between the new location and water outlets. The boiler may be fitted inside a cupboard and doesn’t require any air vents. When positioning the boiler, you must allow sufficient clearance and access for servicing.
