Boiler installation and repairs whenever you need them

Boiler

Most of the major news stories in the UK at the moment are related to the snow. The weather has been incredibly bad, causing all kinds of traffic problems as well as school and business closures. Consequently households are demanding more from their boilers to keep homes warm. This has raised concerns about gas supplies. It also makes people worry about what they would do if their boiler breaks down. Here is some useful advice on this topic from the specialists at warm.co.uk to ease your worries.

Underfloor heating

Installers can now benefit from greater ease of installation and improved performance of underfloor heating (UFH) systems in individual rooms following the launch of Room Packs by JG Speedfit.

 

While conventional multi-room UFH projects can be installed with an individual heating circuit in each room, together with a central manifold, wiring centre and pump pack, this approach is less suitable while installing UFH in just one room.
