A boiler is a heating system that uses water or steam to distribute heat throughout a building. It heats water, which is then circulated through pipes and radiators or radiant floor systems to provide warmth.
There are various types of boilers, including conventional boilers, combi boilers (combination boilers), and system boilers. Each type serves different heating and hot water needs.
Regular boiler maintenance is important for safety, efficiency, and longevity. We recommend an annual service to ensure optimal performance and catch potential issues before they escalate.
Signs of a malfunctioning boiler include irregular heating, strange noises, water leaks, a decrease in hot water supply, and an increase in energy bills. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to seek professional assistance.
Boiler size depends on factors such as the size of your home, the number of rooms, and your heating needs. Our experts can conduct a thorough assessment to recommend the appropriate size for your space.
Modern boilers are designed with energy efficiency in mind. High-efficiency boilers can provide significant energy savings and lower utility bills compared to older models.
Yes, many boilers are designed to provide both heating and hot water. Combi boilers, for example, can heat water for both radiators and taps, offering convenience and efficiency.
Radiant floor heating provides even, comfortable warmth throughout a room. It eliminates the need for visible radiators and reduces allergens since there’s no forced air circulation.
The lifespan of a boiler varies, but with proper maintenance, a well-maintained boiler can last around 15 to 20 years or even longer.
