Why Install Central Heating?
There are a number of reasons why you may be interested in services for central heating installation Bristol. You may be involved in a renovation project where a property has been stripped back and needs to be rebuilt from the ground up. Alternatively, it could be that your existing system is old, worn and needs a refit. More commonly, the majority of people searching for central heating installation Bristol are doing so because they want to make the transition from electric heating to gas. The benefits of this switchover are well founded as central heating is proven to be 3 to 4 times cheaper than electricity.
What makes a central heating system?
The three components of the central heating system are the boiler (this will heat the water), pipes (which will carry the heated water around the house) and the radiator system (which will provide heat to a respective area). If you are looking for central heating installation Bristol our friendly team can help advise on any of the following:
Boiler – As a highly reputable provider of central heating installation Bristol, the boiler is probably one of the most asked about components of the central heating system by customers. There are many different options for choosing a boiler which are detailed on our handy boiler guide page. If you are looking to install a system in a large household with multiple bathrooms then a conventional boiler is best suited as it can pre-heat large amounts of water for simultaneous use. The size of the boiler is also dictated by the size of your property and the typical demands for hot water in the building. Boiler sizes are usually rated in Kws and on average a detached house mostly uses a 30Kw model.
Pipes – The piping system will carry your hot water from the boiler to the where the heat is needed. The most common configuration is the double pipe system where hot water is pumped into a radiator through one pipe and then sent back through an output pipe to the boiler for reheating. This setup is usually more efficient than a single pipe system where hot water is pumped through a radiator and is then mixed back into the main pipe having been cooled down. This results in the next radiator further up the chain being fed cooler water from the main feed pipe.
Radiators – Choosing radiators is usually a very simple task. The main thing to consider is the size and insulation of the room as this will determine how much heating power you will need. From there you can then decide how many radiators you need and how big each radiator should be. You should also think about how you want to furnish the room and plan radiator placement accordingly. An example of why this is important is if you installed a radiator along the wall of a living room only for it to be totally covered by the back of a sofa, heat would be absorbed by the sofa and would not heat the room. If you are still not completely sure about the best radiator placement for your home, we would be happy to advise you on the matter along with anything else relating to central heating installation Bristol.
