Water heater installation in London

Water heater installation

If you need a water heater installation in London carrying out, you should get in touch with us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating. We are based in London SW2 and have been installing boilers of all types for many years. If you want a quality job at a competitive price, with the minimum of fuss and disruption, we are the plumbing firm of first choice.

There are several different types of water heaters or boilers. They include:

  • Standard water heaters that hold large volumes of water which they heat ready for use when required.
  • Water heaters that do not have tanks and supply hot water on demand.
  • Solar water heaters that incorporate tanks that hold water which is heated by solar energy. Not used frequently here in the UK.

The type of water heater installation you chose will depend on your individual needs and circumstances.

Choosing the capacity of water heater

The size of the water heater best for you will depend on two things. First is the amount of hot water that you require to be on tap. Second, is the type of water heater you choose.

Would you like help in calculating which type of what heater installation will best suit your needs?  If yes, we here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating would be only too pleased to offer you advice. We can help you with information about the various flow rates of different devices. This will determine how many boilers you will need to provide you with enough hot water to meet your needs.

Tankless water heaters, for example, are rated on a wide range of inlet temperatures. This varies from living space to living space. We can do the necessary calculations for you and tell which boilers would be appropriate.

With a traditional water heater installation, the calculation is much simpler. It revolves around deciding on the volume of water that has to be collected to satisfy your demands at peak times.

Choosing the type of fuel your boiler will run on

When it comes down to choosing which fuel your boiler should run on, the choice is relatively simple. It mostly depends on whether or not you have a ready supply of electricity or gas. While these two fuels tend to be the mainstays, there are other options such as LPG or solar power.

As a rule of thumb, an electric water heater installation costs less to install than gas. However, it is more expensive to run. On the other hand, If you don’t have a good reliable source of gas or electricity, you might opt for LPG of solar.

Again, we emphasise that if you would like help with making a decision, CW Services Plumbing and Heating can offer you non-obligatory, free professional advice.

One thing you must bear in mind is that if you elect for a gas-fired water heater installation, you ought to employ a Gas Safe registered plumber. This is for the health and safety of anyone inhabiting your home.

CW Services are fully Gas Safe registered.

Time for a new boiler installation in London?

Boilers don’t last forever. It means that at some time in your life you will probably be faced with having to have a new boiler installation in London or wherever else you might live. If you live in London, CW Services Plumbing and Heating cannot be beaten for top quality work at a competitive price.

Take prompt action to avoid a complete boiler breakdown

If your boiler is making weird noises, it could be a sign that it is on the way out. The best thing to do is to take immediate action and get it checked out by a professional plumber. The last thing you want to happen is that your boiler breaks down altogether. It will leave you without hot water and maybe heating, if it drives your central heating system too.

The benefits of a new boiler installation in London

If you do need a new boiler there are several benefits that a new boiler installation in London will give you. The first one is reliability. Most reputable new boilers come with a guarantee. Also, if you use us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating to do the work, that too will be guaranteed for 12-months.

The other benefit is from a cost perspective. Yes, a new boiler will cost you money, but you could well find that your operating costs come down. If for example, your old boiler was running inefficiently, (say the element has become furred-up) your heating bills would have been higher than they should have been.

Another thing is that most good quality boilers today are well insulated. This means that any hot water in them stays warmer for longer.

One more benefit you could enjoy from a new boiler installation in London is water pressure. If you suffer from low pressure through some of your taps, you could correct this. You can have the plumber install a water pum. Alternatively, you might like to consider installing an unvented boiler.

We install all types of boilers

One of the best-unvented cylinders on the market today is made by Megaflo. CW Services Plumbing and Heating, are not only Gas Safe registered, we are also G3 qualified. This means we are approved to install pressurised systems.

As well as being able to help you with a new boiler installation in London, we also do boiler repairs and servicing. We also handle all types of boilers: unvented, vented, combi, biomass, gas or electric.

Regular servicing prolongs a boiler’s life

Regular servicing is of course especially important if you have a gas fired boiler installed. It will prolong your boiler’s working life and will help you to ensure that your boiler operates efficiently. This will not only help you to keep your heating bills down. It will also prevent your boiler from emitting poisonous carbon monoxide. Using a Gas Safe approved plumber like CW Services is however essential to guarantee your safety.

We also offer an emergency call-out service

If you find you have a critical situation, you’ll be pleased to know that we offer an emergency call-out service. To take advantage of this or to organise a visit for a plumbing survey and free no-obligation quotation, all you have to do is call 020 7733 6812 or 07949 095 184.

Who does MEGAFLO installation in London

Are you fed up with having low water pressure from some of the taps in your home? If so, you would benefit from a MEGAFLO installation. What, you may ask, is MEGAFLO and who does MEGAFLO installation in London?

Let’s take it one step at a time. First of all, what is MEGAFLO?

What a MEGAFLO cylinder is

MEGAFLO is what is known as an unvented hot water cylinder. This type of cylinder can be used exclusively as a hot water boiler, or, as is more usual – as part of a central heating system.

A MEGAFLO cylinder has an air bubble built into it. This is used to absorb the water expansion which takes place when water is heated. Unvented cylinders do not have this feature. They rely on another external cylinder being present to take up this absorption. Of all of the types of unvented cylinders, MEGAFLO is the best known and most well-recognised trade name.

The air bubble that is built into all new MEGAFLO cylinders, will dissipate over time. However, when you have your boiler serviced (which incidentally you should do every year), the air bubble can be restored to its original size.

The other thing you should be aware of is that all MEGAFLO cylinders are well insulated. They incorporate a 60mm layer of polyurethane foam. This helps to ensure that once heated, the water in the cylinder stays warmer for longer.

Only use a G3 qualified plumber for your MEGAFLO installation in London

Unlike vented boilers, a MEGAFLO cylinder works under pressure. It means that you can be sure of great water pressure from all of your taps. Unvented boilers, however, are therefore more expensive to install than vented. Also, you need a G3 qualified plumber to carry out your MEGAFLO installation in London; someone like us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

It’s not just the cylinder that works under pressure. All of your plumbing pipework must also be graded to work safely. This is why using only a G3 qualified plumber is not only recommended; it is required by law here in the UK.

How to find someone to carry out a MEGAFLO installation in London

One of the ways you can track down a recommended, G3 plumber to carry out a MEGAFLO installation in London is to go to the Green Age website. If you click on this link, it will take you there.

However, as we have already mentioned, we here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating are not on only one of the recommended installers, we are also one of the best.

Not only are we G3 qualified, but we are also Gas Safe registered. This is a key consideration if you have gas fired heating.

Worried about needing a London boiler repair specialist this winter?

The importance of regular boiler servicing

The best way of avoiding having to call out a London boiler repair specialist is of course to have your boiler regularly serviced. All boilers should have an annual safety check, and if you have gas it’s really important. Without checking, you and anyone in the room with you might be at risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. You might not realise it until it’s too late.

If you have a gas fired boiler, it’s important to ensure that the London boiler repair specialist you use is Gas Safe registered. This is the best way of getting the peace of mind that your appliance will be properly serviced. That way it will be checked for gas safety, and if appropriate, tuned so that it doesn’t emit any toxic fumes.

The danger of CO poisoning

The worst thing about CO poisoning is that unless you are a Gas Safe registered professional, it is undetectable. The fumes do not smell. Also, if they are allowed to build up in an enclosed environment, they can lull you to sleep and cause permanent brain damage. If allowed to continue building up, they can be fatal. You go to sleep and never wake up.

That’s why it’s so important to ensure that the London boiler repair specialist you use is Gas Safe registered like we are here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

Tenants, landlords, home owners and business owners

Whether you are a tenant, a landlord, or a home owner, you can avoid a boiler breakdown by having the appliance serviced every 12 months. In the case of gas boilers and landlords, this annual testing is a legal requirement.

Here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating we also carry out boilers repairs in commercial premises in London too.
