The various types and makes of boilers

The UK the boiler market tends to be dominated by the condensing boiler, of which there are several types; these include combi-boilers, heat only boilers and systems boilers. Two of the most popular makes are Baxi and Glow Worm which are both British. They come in a broad cross-section of shapes and sizes.

The vast majority of condensing boilers are mains gas fired. For people who are not on the gas mains grid, there are other fuel sources including oil and biomass. Most people living in the London area should have access to mains gas and therefore have gas-fired boilers, and of course, if this applies to you, an emergency London boiler repair needs to be carried out by a plumber who is Gas Safe registered.

We can also provide you with a service certificate.

South London heating services

With winter now clearly visible on the horizon, now is a good time to start thinking about South London heating services.

When the warm weather is here (not often enough in the UK some might say), heating is probably the last thing on your mind. As long as you have hot water for things like bathing, showering and washing-up, that’s all you need. But when the temperature begins to drop, it will then be time to switch on the heating, and if it doesn’t work for one reason or another, you could be in trouble.

Avoiding cowboy South London heating services providers

There are of course lots of plumbers and heating engineers servicing the London area, but it’s all about finding the right one. You don’t want to suddenly realise you’ve got a heating emergency and nowhere to go. Just picking up the Yellow Pages and picking a plumber at random could land you in trouble.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of cowboy plumbers around. Some might fix the problem temporarily only for you to discover that it comes back again, even after paying out good money for what you thought and hoped was a permanent repair.

It’s not just limited to repair work either. Cowboy posses provide new plumbing and heating installations, and service and maintenance too. Lousy workmanship is never acceptable in any situation, but if it is in relation to gas appliances, it can even be downright dangerous. It is precisely why you should be thinking about South London heating services now – in advance. It will stand you in good stead.

Help with choosing a heating service provider you can trust

Choosing a plumber that provides top quality, competitively priced South London heating services is not easy. There are simply too many to choose from, and they’ll all tell you that they are the best. However, why should you take their word for it? The short answer is that you shouldn’t, which is why we find that the single best way to find a plumber you can trust and rely on is to follow a personal recommendation.

Personal recommendations

Here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating, most of the work we do is on the basis of personal recommendations. We have plenty of good reviews on our website, and an impressive gallery of photos showing some of the work we do and the high standards we always achieve. But that’s not all.

We are also Gas Safe registered, and while that in itself is no guarantee of quality, it is nonetheless a good indicator. If Gas Safe registered plumbers and heating engineers’ standards drop, they would find it difficult to get their annual license renewal. It means you should always check that a firm’s credentials are current.

As well as being Gas Safe registered, we are also certified members of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing Heating Engineering (CIPHE). This is the industry professional body, and they insist on member companies maintaining the highest of standards.

Smell gas? – Call a South London gas engineer

Having gas installed for your heating or cooking at home, is very safe these days. However, from time to time, you do hear the odd nightmare story of gas explosions which demolish properties and are sometimes fatal. So, if you live in South London and you smell gas, what should you do? The answer is of course to call a South London gas engineer.

Gas has an additive to make it smell

Gas in itself is completely odourless. Because of this it can be inherently dangerous (if gas pipes of gas appliances were to develop a leak) so a harmless chemical called mercaptan is added, to give the gas a specific odour. The amount of mercaptan added to gas in proportion, is less than 1%. It gives the gas a smell which most people relate to rotten eggs or hydrogen sulphide.

Gas is a volatile, combustible material that can be ignited by a naked flame, or a spark, if the gas is allowed to build up in an enclosed area. Wherever you live or work, if you detect an odour of rotten eggs, which you think could be the result of a gas leak, act quickly and inform the right people.

Who to call if you smell gas

Who are the right people to call ? If you live in South London, or you are  landlord with a property in South London where a gas smell have been reported, you could call a South London Gas Engineer like us here us here at CW Services Plumbing Hand heating. We are of course, Gas Safe registered. If you live elsewhere here in the UK, or as an alternative if you are a South Londoner, you can call British Gas on 0800 111 999.

Carbon monoxide – an odourless gas to beware of

While we are talking about gas, it is worth mentioning carbon monoxide. In terms of carbon monoxide in the home, is doesn’t occur naturally, Not even if you have a gas leak. Carbon monoxide is a gas that is emitted when a fuel is not fully burnt.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is odourless, which makes it potentially very dangerous. If you have a faulty gas appliance that is emitting CO in an unventilated area, the build up can cause people in that space to fall unconscious. It’s a gradual process, so you might simply go to sleep. The danger is that you might not wake up again; or if you do, you could be left with permanent brain damage.

You can check out the warning signs of CO poisoning on the British Gas website.
