Gas Boilers

We are partnered with the leading gas boiler manufacturers and can offer Combi, System, and Regular boilers with a warranty period from 2 - 10 years.

 Add  Smart controls  and  thermostats  to Gas, LPG and Oil fuelled heating systems for your convenience, comfort and energy efficiency.

Add Smart controls and thermostats to Gas, LPG and Oil fuelled heating systems for your convenience, comfort and energy efficiency.

Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you will not require a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.

System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, and a cold water tank in the loft.

  • The core heating and hot water system components are integral to the boiler.

    • They are compatible with solar water heating systems, delivering environmental benefits as well as the potential of lower energy bill

Regular boilers (also refered to as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that have an existing traditional heating and hot water system  linked to a separate hot water cylinder.

  • A regular boiler requires a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder and another tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.

LPG Boilers

A LPG boiler operates in a similar way to a gas boiler with the fuel  stored on site in an external tank, rather than being drawn from a mains supply. The fuel is used to heat water in the boiler, which can then be used for hot water or for heating the home via a central heating system.

We are partnered with the leading LPG boiler manufacturers and can offer Combi, System, and Regular boilers with a warranty period from 2 - 10 years.

Oil Boilers

Modern oil-fired boilers can be very energy-efficient and manufacturers claim net seasonal operating efficiencies of up to 97%.

As with gas boilers, the highest rated boilers will offer the greatest efficiency, and there are many 'A' rated models in the marketplace. It has been mandatory since April 2007 to install condensing oil boilers to comply with Building Regulations.

  • Condensing technology recycles the hot exhaust gases via an additional heat exchanger to pre-heat the water in the boiler system, reducing your energy consumption and costs.

Modern oil fired boilers do everything their conventional gas fired counterparts can.

  • We are partnered with the leading oil boiler manufacturers and can offer conventional heat only or a combination oil boiler with a warranty period from 2 - 10 years.

Every oil boiler installation is unique, our engineer will visit you on a free no obligation basis to assess your requirements.

 

Oil Tanks & Bases

We can replace your existing oil tank or install a new one with an appropriate base. Plastic oil tanks should be installed on a flat, level, fire resistant surface, capable of supporting the weight of the tank when fully laden. Where concrete slabs are used, they should be a minimium of 42mm (recommended 50mm) thick.

The base should extend at least 300mm beyond the widest points of the oil tank and fully support the weight of the oil tank. 

An oil tank needs to be protected from a fire that may originate nearby so, tanks should be sited a minimum of 760mm from non fire rated boundary wooden fencing and 1800mm from:

  • Non-fire rated eves of a building.

  • Doors & windows.

  • Any appliance flue terminals.

  • A non-fire rated building or structure (e.g. garden shed)

All our tank installations meet the current OFTEC regulations and our engineer will visit you on a free no obligation basis to assess your requirements.


Landlord Gas Safety Checks

This is requirement under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, which is enforced by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). Your tenants can die as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning from poorly installed or badly maintained gas appliances and flues. 

Landlords of  residential properties have a statutory duty to organise an annual Gas Safety Checks by a registered Gas Safe installer.

Our engineers can carry out checks to ensure your property's gas boilers, water heaters and fires are safe for your tenants to use.
