For most domestic central heating requirements in Shropshire A to C and elsewhere in Shropshire a more than 90% efficient condensing “combi” boiler and domestic hot water package, is the perfect solution to all your hot water needs. Its space-saving wall hung design provides high efficient heating for all Salop household needs, including hot water and radiant systems for heating the home. Ample domestic hot water production and space heating are provided when the boiler is sized correctly for your Shropshire home providing a supply for showers and washing the dishes while eliminating the need for a separate storage tank.
Central Heating and Boiler Basics
Natural gas*, supplied to the home by an underground main line, is fed through a small pipe leading into your home. When the thermostat triggers the boiler to heat the house, a valve opens, releasing the natural gas into a combustion chamber in the form of small jets. An electric spark ignites the fuel. The fire heats the water-filled pipes that circulate through your home. The pipes connect to a radiator where the heated water emits heat energy into the room. Once the heat is exhausted into the air, the cooled water returns through the pipes leading back to the boiler to be reheated and circulated again.
- – Other fuels such as Oil, Biomass and LPG may be used, but the principle is the same for all.
Boiler inspection, servicing, and maintenance is essential as modern heating systems are quite complex and the malfunctioning of any component may cause the whole system to stop working.
Worst of all failure of heating is most likely to occur when the system is working the hardest, on the coldest days of winter, unless it is properly serviced. Don’t make it more likely that you will shiver! Get your boiler inspection done annually!
What You Always Wanted to Know About Combi Boilers
Combi boilers have a lot of advantages over conventional boilers, but also a few small drawbacks. This article will open your eyes to the things you should consider when purchasing a cheaper model. There are many models of combi boilers available in the market, and like in every other product, the price usually matches the quality and determines the results (you get what you pay for).
1) Possible scaling of the DHW heat exchanger
If the water company in your area, supplies you with hard water, chances are that your DHW heat exchanger will scale with time. In that scenario, you will have two choices; either replace it with an original piece from the manufacturer (which won't be cheap), or replace the whole boiler. Of course this problem can occur with any conventional tank as well, as this is one of the effects of hard waters. The latest and more expensive combi boilers are already designed to reduce scaling as much as possible. Another thing you could do is run softened water through it, but that would definitely invalidate your warranty.
2) No option of electric immersion heater
With a conventional water storage tank, if for some reason the boiler fails, you have the option of using an emergency electric immersion heater. But the combi boiler is tankless and this option would not be valid.
3)Possible incompatibility between gas pipes
You may need to upgrade the gas supply pipe, because the diameter may not comply with the regulations for installing combi boilers.
4)Good showers, slower baths
Although one of the combis' strengths is to be able to deliver high pressurized water in both your hot and cold taps, a cheaper model may have a modest flow rate of hot water. That is no problem if you are a shower person, because it will supply just what you need to take a nice hot shower. Nevertheless, it maybe a little slower for your bathtub to fill up.
5)It does not deliver instant hot water to all taps
If the boiler is far away from the tap you are using, it may take a few minutes for the hot water to come through, as it has to travel through many meters of cold water filled pipes. This is not a problem when filling up a tub or taking a shower, but if you just want instant hot water to wash your hands or fill up a basin, it may be irritating to have to wait and see an amount of cold water being wasted down the drain.
