back boiler removal

Back boiler removal 27th March 15There are still many of the old style back boilers out there in residential dwellings – the ones usually sat behind an equally prehistoric radiant style gas fire. These were installed on a major scale during the 70s and beyond as gas central heating became more accessible, affordable, and cleaner than using solid fuels to heat our homes. They were simple in their design, and didn’t really have many things on them that could go wrong, hence many of them still being in place, and regularly used, in today’s 21st century world. On the downside, they were extremely inefficient compared to the A+ ratings on most, if not all, of the boilers being produced today. Many people looking to undertake renovation work to their homes typically look for a back boiler removal service prior to carrying out work, with a view to upgrading to a new system in the process. One of my customers recently had a problem with the pump on the heating side of her old system, and had intended on upgrading the boiler at some point soon anyway, so decided to take the plunge, and install a new boiler at the same time. There was only a couple of options as to where the new boiler could be located, one of which was in the loft. It’s worth taking into consideration that, these days, with the utilisation of a remotely located heating controller, the boiler itself can go pretty much anywhere, as long as it meets the regulations as set out by both the gas industry, and the manufacturer. Needless to say, it was the loft that was chosen as the location for this installation. The old back boiler and fire was disconnected and removed, then the pipework was reconfigured and modified to accommodate the new boiler positioning. Electrical supplies were removed and installed respectively, and the gas supply was also upgraded to account for the extra consumption required by the new boiler. It’s also worth noting here that, although the new boiler was practically double the output of KW/hour compared to the old boiler, being so much more energy efficient, it will still consume much less gas whilst still providing the same performance in terms of both heating and hot water.

The customer was highly delighted with the end result, and now has a clean, energy efficient, and reliable system that hopefully won’t let her down for the foreseeable future. Not only that, but this particular boiler was purchased with a manufacturer’s 10 year parts and labour warranty, for ultimate peace of mind.
