Heating System Upgrades.
Most boilers fitted within the last 10/15 years will be high efficiency condensing boilers but having the right controls for your heating system can achieve upwards of 5-10% saving on fuel bills and help increase comfort levels within the home.
These valves help to regulate the temperature in each room, they operate by opening & closing the valve when the room temperature changes. This helps to reduce excess heat being pumped into radiators in rooms which are already at the desired temperature.
These devices are a clever bit of kit and can help to protect your central heating boiler from future water quality issues by collecting & removing the debris from the system water and holding it within the filter’s body. They are usually installed on the heating return pipe by the boiler to ensure they catch as much debris as possible before it gets into the boiler and back into the system. These should be cleaned annually to remove the debris – this is very simple, and we can show you how to do this to achieve maximum efficiency, or they can be cleaned by your Gas Safe engineer as part of your annual boiler service.
There are many different controls on the market now, some boiler manufacturers recommend that you use their controls with their boilers (and this can sometimes give longer warranties). Smartphone controlled units are also available for installation. These require the controller to have internet access to function correctly, and so may not be suitable for all users, although they tend to offer the user greater flexibility with the heating & hot water controls.
