How do central heating systems work and what are the benefits?

Radiators are a fast and efficient method of heating your home and once installed require minimum maintenance and are long lasting.

They work using a closed system consisting of a boiler and connecting pipes which are filled with water.  The water is heated by the boiler to over 87℃.  A pump pushes the hot water through the pipes and into radiators in each room, heating the air around them.  When the water cools down, it returns to the boiler and the cycle begins again.  

Radiators provide a consistent heating method which doesn’t dry out the air or create air currents that carry dust around your home, like forced air systems can.

What heating service do you need today?

Whether it’s a full system installation for a new build, replacing an old system or moving a radiator to a more convenient location within your home, we can help.

We provide a full installation service tailored to your exact requirements, to ensure the system we install for you is both suitable for your needs and will work effectively and efficiently within your property. 

Before any installation work is carried out a full, we carry out a free survey of the property to make sure your home will be heated quickly and that heating loss is kept to a minimum. If needed we can help source and install additional insulation too.

Your central heating system is essential to keep you warm in the cold winter months.  It needs minimal, but regular servicing to maintain healthy operation and to ensure its not working your boiler too hard, increasing your heating bill.  

Regular maintenance includes bleeding the radiators to remove any air that might be trapped within the system, checking the system pressure, which can be an indication of a leak if pressure has been lost, and servicing the boiler to ensure it is running safely and efficiently.  

Should you need a Gas Safety Certification for a rental property or commercial building, all our engineers can provide one as they are Gas Safe registered, and fully trained to carry out a boiler servicing and safety checks.
