What Do Our Customers Say?

”George at Thames boilers has been great. Have used him on a couple of occasions and was always prompt , efficient and very friendly. He was even great with my nosy cat trying to get in his way. Had a hiccup with our new thermostat after he first visited and he immediately came within a few hours to fix it for us. Great service”

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.”

What Boilers Do We Recommend To Customers In Greenhithe?

Vaillant Boiler

Vaillant Boilers

Vaillant are one of the most popular boiler makes in the UK. They’re a German firm, with their headquarters in Remscheid, Germany since 1874.

Worcester Bosch Boilers

Worcester Bosch are probably the best known boiler brand in the country. Although they’re now owned by the big German brand, Bosch, Worcester boilers are still very much a British company. Its boilers are still made in Warndon in Worcester.

Viessmann Boilers

Viessmann is the greatest boiler brand you’ve never heard of. We’re big fans of Viessmann here at Thames Boilers because they’re as well built as (if not better) than Vaillant and Worcester Bosch, however their prices are a little lower. This makes them fantastic value – and Which? agrees, giving Viessmann boilers several Best Buy awards in recent years.

Baxi Boilers

Baxi is another great British boiler brand, founded in the industrial revolution by Richard Baxendale, an iron founder, who began the Baxendale Company (now Baxi) in 1866, based in Preston in Lancashire. These days, Baxi also makes boilers under the Main and Potterton brands. We usually recommend Baxi boilers as the least disruptive replacement to some heat-only boilers – and their Main brand for people who are on a budget.

FAQ​

As a rule, if you have got one bathroom as well as great water pressure at your kitchen tap or outside tap, a combination boiler is usually the best option.
If you have got more than one bathroom, a conventional boiler (or even a system boiler) with a hot water cylinder could be the best option.

No. For existing residences, if you have to replace your central heating boiler from 2035 onwards, you will not be allowed to put in another gas boiler. According to current government plans, you would have to get a Hydrogen boiler or a heat pump. Nevertheless, if your gas boiler is operating in 2035, you will not be required to do anything till it needs to be replaced, such as if it’s broken down & irreparable.

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

If you have only got 1 bathroom as well as 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 numerous types of clever thermostats that can connect to the internet so you can control your boiler from your phone. Some brands people opt for are Nest, Honeywell, Tado, as well as Hive.

6 Benefits You Get With A New A-Rated Boiler

1. Slash Your Gas Bills

Did you know that old fashioned G-rated boilers waste 45pence of every £1 you spend on gas? That’s a big waste of gas and money. But if you get a new A-rated boiler, only 8-9pence in every pound is wasted. That’s a big saving that can total up to £570 every year.

2. Stop Paying For Boiler Breakdowns

Some people mistakenly think that modern boilers go wrong more often than older boilers. That’s because newer boilers can be more complex than their predecessors. For cheap, low quality boilers, this may be true; cheap boilers are unreliable. However, high quality modern boilers are very robust and breakdowns are rare. Plus, new boilers come with manufactuer’s guarantees of up to 12 years, which include all parts and labour.

3. More powerful showers and faster filling baths

Does your shower just dribble? Does the water run so slowly it takes ages to get all the shampoo out of your hair? A new boiler could fix that. Combi boilers and unvented hot water cylinders can give you great pressure to all your taps and showers. This is because the water comes straight from high pressure mains water and not a tank in your attic. So not only do you get a boiler that saves you money and keeps you nice and warm – you also get a powerful shower as an added bonus!

4. No more running out of hot water

Do you find you keep running out of hot water? It can be a pain, especially in the mornings when everyone is using the bathroom. With a modern boiler this doesn’t happen any more. If you had a combi boiler, you could leave the hot water on all day (no that you’d want to) and it wouldn’t go cold. This is because combi boilers heat hot water on demand. Even with a conventional system, if you get a propely designed hot water cylinder, it’ll seem like your hot water will last forever.

5. Free up more space in your home

Extra storage space seems to be what everybody wants these days. And a new gas boiler can help you get it. Modern boilers can be safely installed in places old boilers couldn’t, like the attic, basement, or garage, so you can get the boiler out of the way. 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 to give you heating and hot water. 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 while you’re replacing your boiler, why not do some clever space saving in yout home at the same time? If you’d like some ideas for inspiration, please feel free to get in touch.

6. Never worry about switching the boiler on again.

With advanced heating controls like the Nest thermostat or the amazing Honeywell Evohome control system, you’ll always be warm enough, but never waste money on gas either. They’re easy to use, but are full of advanced features to help keep you comfortable and save you money. Geo-fencing, for example, knows when everybody has left the house, so it turns the heating down to save money. Then, when anyone is getting close to home again, it turns the heating up again, ready for when you’re home. Contact us today to learn more about the latest heating controls and boilers.
