Un-vented cylinders: Similar to conventional cylinder but providing hot water at mains water pressure, therefore eliminating the need for cold water storage in the loft.  Standard features are high performance heat exchanger, Faster heat recovery times (as low as 15 minutes), Minimal heat loss (reduced boiler fire up) Powerful mains pressure showering, faster filling baths and some manufacturers offering a 25 years guarantee.

Power flushing: This is the most efficient and effective method of cleansing a central heating system.  The principal is to create a powerful fresh water flow under controlled conditions to remove debris from the system. The Power flushing unit is connected to the heating circuit and chemicals added and heat from the existing boiler used to enhance the cleaning process. After the cleaning process a protector is added to prevent future attack from corrosion or lime scale. The central heating system is then rebalanced to ensure even heat distribution at all radiators.  It is important when installing new boilers into old systems that all sludge is first removed from the system or this could accumulate in the new boiler and lead to premature failure.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves: TRV’s are used to limit the temperature in individual rooms. They also prevent overheating from solar (direct sun light) and other incidental gains (cookers & fires). In this way, they cut down on unnecessary gas consumption.

System controls & zoning: We can look at your existing controls and provide you with cost effective solutions to ensure your system complies with current building Regulations Part L1 and best practice as set by the government.  Effective controls and zoning will increase operating efficiencies, especially when older systems are being updated. They also provide the householder with the opportunity to minimise energy consumption by ensuring the right comfort temperatures are maintained and so reducing overheating.
