Central Heating System

With Oil Fired Central Heating Systems we are able to off three main options.

A standard fully pumped system.
A sealed system
A Combination Boiler system.
Standard Fully Pumped System.

The standard Central Heating consists of a Potterton Statesman Boiler, Radiators, Copper Cylinder, Water Storage Tanks, Oil Tank and fittings. All Statesman Boilers provide a number of flueing options and they are explained in brief on the Boiler page or in detail on the Potterton Website.

Sealed System.

The Sealed System option is very similar to the above but the small tank in the loft space is replaced with a pressure vessel on the Central Heating which is within the boiler case.

Combination System.

The Combination Boiler System uses a Potterton Statesman Combination Oil Boiler. With this system there is no need for any cold water storage. The Central Heating side has a pressure vessel as with the Sealed System option. The Domestic Hot water is supplied by the incoming household water main and hot water is supplied on demand. Adequate water pressure would be required for this system to work to its full potential.

All of the above options have there own merits and we would be more than happy to discuss your individual requirements.

What is a Combination Boiler?

Combination Boiler Repairs also supply and install new combination boilers.

What is a Combination Boiler?

A combination (or combi boiler) is a compact and highly efficient unit giving all the heating and hot water you need, with significant savings on running and installation costs.

Unlike a conventional heating and hot water system, a combination boiler system does not store hot water. It heats water directly from the cold mains – as you use it. There’s no hot water cylinder, no tank in the loft (and so less risk of freezing and flooding), and none of the connecting pipework. So you not only save space, but also considerably reduce hot water costs- which can account for up to 60% of a domestic fuel bill.

A combination boiler also supplies hot water at mains pressure, giving you exhilarating power showering without the need for a pump. And as, on average, a shower uses considerably less water than a typical bath, the savings on hot water costs and water consumption can be significant.

It was Worcester Bosch who pioneered the concept of the gas combination boiler in Britain.

Manufacturing boilers which can deliver 4 gallons every minute and are able to supply 2 or even 3 hot taps simultaneously Worcester Bosch is one of our most popular manufacturers.
