Underfloor Heating and Boiler Repairs in Battersea | Installing and Servicing a New Boiler

Reputable manufacturers build their boilers to last. Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd specialises in boiler repairs and boiler servicing for domestic and commercial installations. When a boiler comes to the end of its serviceable and repairable life, or if we can no longer source parts, our domestic and commercial gas engineers and plumbers can perform a new installation instead. For domestic clients in Battersea in particular, our plumbing company can combine boiler services with underfloor heating repairs and installations, as well as plumbing repairs and other plumbing services.

This page contains key information about choosing a new boiler and having one installed.

Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd has covered the Battersea and Fulham areas since 2010. Located in Balham, we have plumbers with City & Guilds qualifications and heating engineers with Gas Safe registration. Together, we have 30+ years of experience in boiler repairs, boiler servicing and boiler and underfloor heating installations.

Choosing a Boiler Type

There are three boiler types to choose from:

A regular boiler uses gravity to feed itself from separate hot and cold water tanks. We only recommend regular boilers for properties in the Battersea area that already have these tanks fitted, and only for those with multiple bathrooms used at the same time. This type of boiler installation is more expensive and better suited for local properties with three or more bathrooms.

A combi boiler is the best choice for small properties because it doesn’t need separate tanks and heats water direct from the mains supply. This makes it the cheapest installation, and the most popular, but it can struggle when heating multiple bathrooms. Customers with larger homes, and businesses like guest houses and hotels, may want to go with a system boiler instead. These boilers still use separate water tanks, but they also have heating elements within the unit.

Our plumbers and commercial gas engineers can handle installations on all three types of boiler. Don’t forget that our plumbing company can also handle all boiler repairs and boiler servicing in addition to underfloor heating repairs and plumbing repairs.

Choosing a Make and Model

Once you have decided on a boiler type, you need to choose a specific make and model. There are a few factors to consider here, such as:

Also, think about other installations, such as radiators and underfloor heating, and whether or not the model you have in mind might require you to upgrade other systems, involving potentially disruptive plumbing services.

Insist on a Good Warranty

If you use an approved boiler installation company, like Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd, you have access to appliances from major manufacturers. We guarantee all boiler installations for a minimum of 12 months but on models we have approval for, we can usually offer you an extended warranty. This is good news for our customers because it negates the cost of boiler repairs in the future.

Just keep in mind you could invalidate a standard or extended warranty if you don’t book in for boiler servicing on an annual basis. Our plumbers and heating engineers can fit boilers from Baxi, Potterton, Worcester Bosch, Vaillant, Vokera and more. Furthermore, our heating and plumbing company also provides a 12-month warranty on underfloor heating installations, giving you peace of mind should you need underfloor heating repairs.

With a good warranty, and as long as you book in for servicing at intervals specified by the manufacturer, you’ll have cover for most boiler repairs. Modern boilers suffer far fewer problems than their predecessors, but a warranty still gives you a certain peace of mind that is hard to put a price on.

Even if you know the type, make, model and warranty that you want to invest in, it pays to get a second opinion from Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd, Battersea’s experienced plumbers and heating engineers. Our domestic and commercial gas engineers are always happy to assist you, and to help you find the perfect boiler or underfloor heating system for your home or business.  With three decades of combined experience, we can offer you the very best independent advice.

Of course, we are also happy to advise on plumbing repairs and other plumbing services.
