Any plumber must follow health and safety standards in a very strict manner to ensure the residents of any property are safe. Health and safety should be the priority of any professional plumbing or heating engineer so do ensure you check that the tradesperson that you choose is sufficiently qualified and Gas Safe (previously Corgi) registered for heating and gas projects, and that they are professionally qualified with the relevant electric certifications. Both types of tradesman need different qualifications so you will normally find that at least two people will attend to your project.
Water & Heating Systems – Which to Choose?
Installing Heating & Water Systems
If you have a new home requiring heating systems and water installations, it can be a very large job. There are different types of ways in which you can heat your home and its worth getting good advice from a professional. They will help you plan a new system; decide how big or complex it needs to be, and the most efficient way to heat up your water when you need it.
There are a number of varying ways that you can utilise in order to heat your property, and heat up your water. They are Oil and LPG, mains gas, electrical heating and storage systems.
Electric heating will be a cheaper investment but if you are planning to sell, property buyers generally don’t find this type of system appealing. Mains gas is a powerful way to heat your home and water, however some people may choose both mains and electric if you have a good supply into your property – for example, an electrical shower will heat up your shower water instead of relying on your gas-powered boiler. LPG gas and oil are generally used where there is no mains supply. A large tank is required. Storage heaters are effective and attract slightly different tariffs, as an example you can choose a nighttime tariff where your heat is generated on an evening and is released the following day.
Many people are now opting for underfloor heating throughout the entire home. This means that there is no need to fit radiators and no requirement for a boiler unless you are heating your water using a gas boiler.
