Boilers are at the heart of every heating system as they help to regulate how and when your appliances operate. Older boilers are prone to breakdowns, which can cause untold disruption in any property. As such, it is prudent for new homeowners, or those living with older heating setups, to invest in a new boiler. To ensure that this piece of equipment works correctly from the get-go, it is imperative that it is fitted by proven plumbing and heating contractors.

The boiler is, arguably, the most important part of any heating system. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to regulate when your hot water when radiators are turned on, rendering most of your appliances useless. There a few types of boilers available for homeowners, all of which serve the same function but in different ways. Below are the three main types of domestic boiler you can invest in.
Combination or ‘combi’ boilers are incredibly cost-effective boilers that have continued to grow in popularity over the years. They serve the purpose of heating water directly from the mains instead of through a hot water cylinder. Combi boilers are small in size, so they do not require a lot of space to be fitted and can, therefore, be installed in more accessible areas of your home. The lack of pipework needed for combi boilers also means that the fitting process is typically cheaper.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

System boilers have the major heating and hot water systems built into the model itself, meaning they are quicker to install than comparable units. While system boilers do need a hot water cylinder, they can produce a large amount of hot water at a time, making them ideal for home with two bathrooms. These boilers are very economical to run and are even compatible with solar water heating systems if you already have these set up in your home.
For homes that already have a traditional heating setup, regular boilers are often the best option. The boilers require both a hot water cylinder for storing heated water and a cold-water storage tank. Installing such a model is easier for homes that have an older radiator setup, as it is merely a matter of swapping the old boiler out for a new one. These models are also ideal for homes where hot water is used at the same time throughout the property.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
