Maybe you would like to update your system to make it work more efficiently. We can replace your existing boiler to suit your requirements. We keep up to date with the energy efficiency Part L building regulations. Discounts are available if a boiler change and powerflush are purchased together.
We install Worcester-Bosch, Vaillant, Baxi-Potterton, Glow-worm, Ideal boilers aswell as other manufacturers.
When you have your boiler replaced we would recommend the installation of a central heating filter. This helps protect your boiler from future iron oxide/dirt/debris of your system.
Unlike internet boiler companies which quote over the internet without attending the property we come out and visit the property so we can carry out an accurate detailed quote which will suit the requirements of yourself and the property. We believe its important for the client to meet the company in person and the installer can have a more detailed view of what is involved in completing the job to a high standard.
Boilers require servicing annually to ensure efficiency and to ensure that they are safe to use. Servicing your boiler will prolong it’s working life and ensure its safety.
Gas Fire Servicing
Gas fires require servicing annually to ensure that they are safe to use. Flue flow tests and spillage tests are carried out in this service to ensure the chimney is safe and that products of combustion are not spilling back into the room. A Carbon Monoxide detection check of the room can also be carried out.
We install, service and repair gas fires.
Landlord Gas Safety Certificate

Powerflushing will not remedy the design or mechanical faults in a heating system, which should be rectified, but in many cases it will cure the problems caused by these.
It has taken the majority of installers many years to realise the benefits and full potential that powerflushing can bring to old, dirty heating systems. The procedure, if carried out professionally, is extremely effective. Powerflushing is without any doubt BEST PRACTICE when cleaning up old systems. Unlike other flushing methods, powerflushing has the ability to restore circulation most cases, improve system efficiency and to restore sanity to frustrated homeowners who, in many cases, have put up with their poorly performing heating system for years!
A powerflush will remove on average over 3Kg of sludge and other deposits from an old heating system. Where the system has had an incorrectly arranged cold feed and vent pipe, or where no inhibitor has ever been added, anything up to 7Kg of dirt may be removed.
Why do I need a Power Flush?
The problem – black metal oxide sludge (rust) the build up of this sludge in your central heating system over a period of time is inevitable, especially if the system water is left untreated of any chemicals such as a inhibitor.
When the sludge in a heating system starts to build up typical problems are:
Radiators cold at the bottom
Radiators cold at the top and need frequent bleeding
No heat distribution to the radiators or very poor
Boiler cutting out
Noise from boiler
Poor or no hot water
High Fuel Bills
By far the greatest risk to a untreated system is boiler failure – an expensive and disruptive occurrence. A improperly or unprotected system with a build up of sludge may suffer boiler noise (thumping, drumming and knocking) due to excessive or sludge build up. Eventually the insulating effects of sludge will restrict the heat exchanger (the engine of a boiler) to the point where it overheats and fractures.
Sludge will seriously effect the efficiency of a system which will lead to higher fuel bills and premature failure of a boiler and other heating components such as valves and pumps.
Prices vary dependant on system.
