BOILER INSTALLATION

CHOOSING A NEW BOILER

When the time comes for you to have to start thinking about choosing a new boiler, whether it be due to an emergency break-down and you need a replacement boiler in a hurry, or whether you want to plan a pre-emptive boiler replacement so that you can be confident your heating will be working well during the winter months, we are here to help guide you into choosing the best new boiler for your home.

There are many different factors that you need to take into account when selecting the right boiler for your home, these include, the size of your property, how many people live in the home, what are your water usage habits are and what are your future plans for the property.

We install all of the most popular boiler manufacturers that are installed in UK. We install all of the most popular boiler manufacturers that are installed in UK. As well as being accredited Vaillant and Viessman installers, we also install Worcester, Ideal, Veissmann and Main boilers.

As a general rule of thumb, there are three types of boilers which are predominately installed in homes across the UK; combination boilers, system boilers and conventional boilers. Below is a short description of each;

COMBINATION BOILERS

These boilers provide an unlimited, instantaneous hot water supply, in addition to your heating demands. They are great for smaller properties, such as flats or small houses, where space is at a premium. Combination boilers are very energy efficient and cost effective as water is only heated when needed and not heated and then stored. The downside to combination boilers, is that when there is two or more taps opened at the same time, there is a noticeable difference in the flow rate of the hot water as the water comes directly from the mains water supply. That said, if only a single shower is turned on, you will be able to enjoy a powerful shower due to it being driven from the mains supply.

SYSTEM BOILER

These boilers only act as a heat source, which can be used to either heat your radiators or under-floor heating, or to heat the water stored in your hot water cylinder. They are similar to conventional boilers, with the difference being that they contain additional components, such as a central heating pump, pressure relief valve and expansion vessel. System boilers, like combination boilers, are installed as part of a “sealed” heating system, meaning, if also fitted with an unvented cylinder, there is no need for any tanks in your loft.

CONVENTIONAL BOILERS

These boilers also act only as a heat source, as with system boilers, however, they have no additional components in them. They are usually installed in ‘classic’ type of heating system, where there may be a cylinder, along with pumps to boost water pressure to baths and showers. These types of boilers are suited to older heating systems, where increased pressures used in a ‘sealed’ system may cause issues with leaks etc. They are also suited to large properties, where larger expansion vessels and pumps are required than what you will find in a system boiler.

WHEN YOU CONTACT AVENUE HEATING…

When we are contacted to enquire about a new boiler installation, we will take as much information as possible and if necessary, one of our experienced engineers will visit your property to carry out a full survey at a time which is convenient for you. Only once we are sure that the proposed boiler is suitable for you and your property, we will send you a free, no-obligation quotation. 

Once the quotation is accepted, we will agree an installation date and book you in, following which the deposit invoice for the work will be sent to you. We will usually arrive between eight and nine AM on the day of installation and finish between three and six PM. If it is a larger installation, we may need to return for second even third day to complete the work. 

During the work, we will provide regular updates as to what we are doing and any abnormalities or issues we come up against. Invariably while carry out any boiler installation, there is likely to be something that wasn’t accounted for, such as previous poor workmanship or interesting discoveries such as birds and wasps nests! But you can rest-assured, no matter what we find, we have the skill and experience to find a suitable solution to the issue! 

Once the installation is complete, we will fully test and commission the boiler and provide you with the completed manufacturers’ benchmark, after talking you through any user controls or other information that you may need to be aware of with your new boiler. Provided you are completed satisfied, we will leave your home clean tidy, get the final invoice sent to you and request a review of our services! (for which we will do whatever is possible to receive a 5* one!)
