There are a wide range of boilers and manufacturers available on the market which can be confusing at times. To make it simpler for our customers, we only fit the best boilers from the most respected of manufacturers including Baxi , Potterton and Worcester Bosch. All newly fitted boilers are condensing boilers, which are designed to burn fuel as efficiently as possible, reducing the cost of heating your home. Condensing boilers can be combi boilers or system boilers.
Combination boilers (combi boiler)— a combination boiler heats the water for your radiators and hot water on demand. Water is not stored in a cylinder, avoiding the resulting loss of heat over time. Combination boilers take up less space in your house, and are highly efficient, but they may not be suitable for large households that require lots of hot water from multiple taps at the same time.
System Boilers — a system boiler heats the hot water and stores it in a cylinder for later use, usually in an airing cupboard. This provides a larger quantity of hot water and is not affected by people using multiple taps at the same time, but it may be less flexible as the water and radiators are usually heated for fixed, preset periods of time.
Why not consider Underfloor Heating?
One call Plumbing & Heating are specialists in Underfloor Heating and will gladly come out and talk to you regarding the installation of UPH in your property.
Why Underfloor Heating Systems? Underfloor heating is far from a new concept, it was first used by the Romans whose dwellings were constructed with voids through which air, warmed by an open fire, would pass, thus heating the structure.
Underfloor heating is not a new concept in this country either. In the past electric heating elements were buried within floor screeds. These were heated over night using ‘cheap rate’ electricity. However, this method was expensive to run and uncontrollable and the building would over heat during the day but in the evening, when heat is generally required, no further heat was available. Utilizing today’s modern multilayer pipes, control systems and high efficiency boilers, the underfloor heating systems of today are extremely comfortable and controllable. Radiators are no longer needed so giving more room space. The heat is more evenly distributed and dust is not circulated.
Underfloor heating from the whole floor area of the house gently warms the air above, eliminating cold spots. The warm air convects from the floor surface losing approximately 2 degrees centigrade at 2.0 meters above the floor, which makes the system ideal for all ceiling heights. Independent tests reveal that the most acceptable indoor climate is one in which the floor temperature ranges between 19-29°C and the air temperature at head level ranges between 20 and 24°C. With radiator or convector heating systems a vertical temperature gradient is produced; colder at foot level than at the head. Underfloor heating has made it possible to reduce energy consumption by using low water temperatures. These systems, based on the development of complex and very high quality plastic pipe, such as the multilayer pipe, now account for over 60% of some European heating markets
