5/5

”Thames Boilers have just carried out a boiler replacement for me. They quoted promptly with a competitive rate and carried out the work neatly, thoroughly and efficiently to a high standard of workmanship. Engineer George Lane was courteous, explained in advance what he was doing and when he would do it, cleared everything away and left things in a tidy state. I have no hesitation in recommending Thames Boilers.”

People In Forest Hill Choose These Boiler Brands

Vaillant Boiler

Vaillant Boilers

Vaillant are one of the most popular boiler brands in the UK. They were apparently the first company to make a “combi”also known as a “combination” boiler back in the early 1960’s. So they’re a well established company.

Worcester Bosch Boilers

Worcester Bosch are one of the best known boiler brands in the country. Although now owned by the big German brand, Bosch, Worcester is still very much a British company. Worcester Bosch’s boilers are still made in Warndon in Worcester.

Viessmann Boilers

Viessmann are the greatest boiler manufacturer you’ve never heard of. We’re big fans of Viessmann here at Thames Boilers because their build quality is as good as (if not better) than Vaillant or Worcester Bosch, but their prices are a little lower. This makes Viessmann great value – and Which? agrees, giving Viessmann several Best Buy awards in recent years.

Baxi Boilers

Baxi Boilers are another great British heating manufacturer, whose roots go back to Richard Baxendale, an iron founder, who began the Baxendale Company (now Baxi) in 1866, based in Preston in Lancashire. Today, Baxi also makes well known Main and Potterton boiler brands, as part of the Baxi group. We usually recommend Baxi boilers as the least disruptive replacement for some heat-only boilers – and their Main brand for people who want to keep costs down.

Common Questions From Our Forest Hill Customers​

Generally, if you have one bathroom and also great water pressure at your kitchen tap or outdoors tap, a combination boiler is generally the very best option.
If you have got over one bathroom in your home, a conventional, also called a “heat only” boiler (or even a system boiler) with a hot water tank would be the most effective option.

No. For existing residences, if you need to change your central heating boiler from 2035 onwards, you won’t be able to replace it with another gas boiler. Going by current government plans, you would need to install a Hydrogen boiler or a heat pump. Nevertheless, if your gas boiler is working in 2035, you won’t need to do anything until it needs to be replaced, such as if it’s broken down and irreparable.

It can differ hugely depending upon what you require.
But as a rough estimate, to take your old boiler out and put a brand-new one in the exact same location ranges from roughly ₤1800 to ₤3000.
And to take out an old sort of heating system with a hot water cylinder {and} install a combi boiler costs between roughly ₤3000 to ₤5000.
If you require other work carried out at the same time, such as a power flush, a new gas pipeline, or brand-new radiators, this will add to the estimated price.

If you have only got 1 bathroom and also great water pressure, yes.
If you have got more than 1 bathroom or inadequate water pressure, then no{, you should look at a conventional boiler or a system boiler}.

Yes. There are a number of kinds of smart thermostats that can connect to the internet so you can regulate your boiler from your phone. Some brands customers go for are Nest, Honeywell, Tado, and also Hive.

6 Benefits You Get With A New Boiler

1. Save Money On Your Heating Bills

If you’ve got a old G-rated boiler and you replace it with a new condensing boiler and controls, you can save up to £570 a year on your gas bills. That’s upto an extra £47.50 a month in your pocket, and not your gas company’s.

2. Stop Paying For Boiler Breakdowns

There’s a misconception that modern boilers are more complicated making them more liable to go wrong. With low quality boilers, that may be the case. But with good quality boilers, the opposite is true. They’re engineered with minimal moving parts and all the necessary moving parts are designed to last for as long as possible.

3. More powerful showers and faster filling baths

When we think about boilers and central heating, most of us think about radiators. But did you know your central heating effects how good (or bad) your hot water is? An added benefit of upgrading your central heating is piping hot powerful showers and hot baths that fill in minutes.

4. Stop running out of hot water

If you find you keep running out of hot water, then your hot water cylinder may be too small – or it may be full of limescale. To fix this, you can either replace your hot water cylinder for a newer efficient one, or if your home is suitable, you can take out your old boiler and hot water tank and replace them both with a combi boiler. This will give you as much hot water as you need and save you space because you don’t need a seperate cylinder and tanks in the loft.

5. Create space at home

Extra storage space seems to be the thing that everybody wants. And a new gas boiler can help you get it. Modern boilers can be installed safely in spaces old boilers couldn’t, like the loft, basement, or garage, so you can get your boiler out of sight. And if your home is suitable for a combination boiler, you can take out your hot water cylinder and water tanks in the loft, because a combi boiler doesn’t need these things. This means you can use your whole airing cupboard for storage – or in some homes – you can take it out completely and install a small shower. So why not use this oppourtunity of replacing your boiler to do some clever space saving in your home? If you’d like some ideas for inspiration, please get in touch.

6. Never worry about switching the heating on or off again.

Everything takes care of itself all year round, so you won’t feel chilly and need to turn the heating on manually. Furthermore, you’ll never use more gas than you need to stay warm and cosy. That’s because modern heating controls use basic artificial intelligence and inside and outside sensors to keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year round. Clocks changed? That’s not a problem, your controls will automatically change the time. Want to change the temperature or programs? It’s easy – if you can work a tablet or Netflix, you’ll find these controls really easy to use.
