We are proud to be Vaillant accredited boiler installers
Vaillant is an exceptionally well engineered boiler with a great customer service standards and is a strong mover in the heating business. Most heating engineers will install or recommend these boilers over any other.
Boiler installation location
If its a straight swap then its simple….In terms of new locations for boilers then the sky’s the limit really. They can go in the loft, kitchen, bedrooms, dining rooms, garages and even in bathrooms. Of course we are governed by regulations so will advice and install accordingly.
The factors we consider include how we get services such as gas, water and heating pipes to the boiler and how to get products of combustion and condense away from the boiler. We also have to consider running an electrical supply to a fused spur to supply the boiler.
If you already have a combination boiler in place then we may only have to bring a 22 mm or 28 mm gas supply to the boiler (if the existing supply is to small) and a condense away (if your old boiler is a non condensing).
We can typically follow the same flue route and connect to the services, primaries and electric.
Running a shower from a combination boiler
Combination boilers sized correctly and operating from good mains pressure can provide fantastic power showers. Have in mind that a good shower needs 12 lts per minute. This means for households or businesses with a mixer shower fed directly off of the boiler a 24 kw unit will be undersized and will not be suitable for showers. Boiler installation Bristol – A 24kw unit such as the Vaillant Eco Tec Pro 24 (ERP) or Worcester 24 I junior will give between 8 lts – 9 lts per minute depending on incoming cold water temperature and incoming mains supply. This is no good for a decant shower, especially if someone draws off hot water at the same time (essentially the flow rate will half). Boiler power (in kilowatts) behind the hot water supply needs to be 28 kw absolute minimum. We would recommend a ecoFIT pure 830 (ERP) minimum, however a Vaillant Eco Tec Plus (ERP) 832 or a Worcester 30 CDI in shower situations will be perfect. Both boilers delivery over 12 lts per minute – which is a good shower.
