Whether you are installing a totally new central heating system or you need to replace or repair your central heating, we can help you to find technicians to help create a warm and efficient home.

How disruptive is installing central heating?

There is no way around it. Installing central heating can be disruptive. Depending on your home, there could be a lot that needs to be removed or adjusted in order to access the pipes. If you are getting central heating installed for the first time in a property then it can take longer.

Floorboards may need to come up, and there might also be some requirement for redecorating or touching-up after your central heating installation.

If you just need central heating boiler replacement, but the pipework doesn’t need to be replaced then it doesn’t have to be overly disruptive. In cases where the whole home needs to be altered then it can take many days of upheaval.

Some of the best central heating contractors can install everything in a day, but there may be work left for you to do afterward in terms of carpeting or redecorating. A consultation with a heating system installation professional near you can ensure that you know what you are getting into, how long it will take and what your costs will be before you get started.

Consider the age of your home, too. Older houses don’t tend to be easy to install newer central heating systems.

Benefits of Central Heating Systems

Obviously, there are a number of benefits of central heating to weigh up with the costs:

  • It can reduce the growth of mold in your home.

  • It can be more energy-efficient than other heating options.

  • Central heating can be cheaper to run than other types of heating.

  • HVAC systems can also cool in the summer.

  • A good system can last decades if treated right and serviced correctly.

How do I check the Central Heating Installer’s credentials?

Central heating installers in the USA can be checked with a state’s contractor licensing board. This way you can see if they have a license to install heating and air conditioning and also see complaints about the company (if they exist).

It is always a good idea to check multiple contractors and get quotes from them. In some cases, heating and air conditioning unit brands will have certain contractors they recommend and a network of specifically-trained companies.

You can also use online directories and review sites to ensure that you are working with trusted tradespeople. There are a number of assessments and background checks that can be carried out. You can also ask what training their staff have before opting to go with one specific quote.

Should you get the central heating system serviced?

Central heating replacement is not cheap. It is recommended that you get the system regularly serviced as this can extend the life of the furnace and other parts of your heating system.

Of course, a service does come with a cost, but it is worth it if it gets extra life out of your system. You should aim to get it serviced once a year.

Despite the majority of the UK population having central heating, so many of us have no idea how it works! Put simply, a central heating system produces heat from a single source (usually a boiler), which is then distributed through your home in the form of hot water or air. While it sounds fairly simple, installing central heating can be a complicated process, not to mention dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing! While it’s always best to hire a professional to install your central heating safely and efficiently, maintenance is fairly straightforward and can be carried out by most homeowners, as long as they know the basic principles of how boilers work.

Central heating takes around 3 days to install on average, although this can change depending on various factors, including the size of the property, the number of radiators, and the type of flooring. As with any home improvement project, always allow time for the worst-case scenario - 4 to 5 days is sensible.

Struggling to strike the balance between a cosy home and low energy bills? Read on to find out how you can stay toasty in your home and save money at the same time:

  • Ensure that your radiator system is clean - A clogged up radiator can significantly increase your energy bills, so it pays to keep on top of it. One of the first clues that your radiator system is dirty is cold spots on your radiator or a radiator that takes a long time to heat up. You can easily test your radiator for dirty water by bleeding some of the water into a small container.
  • Check that your boiler is on the right setting - While the darkest days of winter may call for you to crank up your radiator to the highest setting, this isn’t necessary most of the year. High temperatures are one of the main culprits for wasting energy - don’t let your radiator setting catch you out!
  • Keep furniture away from radiators - The foam in upholstered furniture is one of the biggest culprits for retaining heat and preventing it circulating in your home. Always leave a few inches between your radiator and furniture to allow heat to be distributed freely around the room.
