Central Heating Repair in Stevenage
This lovely home in Aston, Stevenage had leaking central heating pipes in their dining room concrete floor. Using our new thermal imaging camera we were able to detect and locate the leak and therefore pinpoint the leak without unnecessary explorative digging.
After locating the leak, we created a new channel in the floor, repaired the copper pipe and ensured easy access in the future by laying a wooden panel across the pipework. For information, the lime in concrete will erode copper pipework over time so it’s important to protect the copper tube with insulation or lay pipework in ducting.
If you have a problem with leaking pipes in a concrete floor, contact us to discuss how our thermal imaging camera can quickly help to locate the problem and therefore reduce costs.

New Boiler Installed in Welwyn Garden City
The 30 year old boiler in Welwyn Garden City was beyond repair as parts were no longer available. Therefore, a new boiler installation was required. We replaced the old boiler with a new Worcester Bosch standard heat boiler. We advised and carried out a powerflush – this is required to meet manufacturer requirements and to validate a 5 or 7 year warranty.
We replaced the central heating pump and values, then added a new electric emersion heating so they always had hot water during the installation process. In addition, we added a Magna clean that will collect the sludge that builds up over time in central heating systems and can easily e removed, cleaned and put back – this helps maintain the efficiency of the central heating system.
Improved performance of hot water tank in Oaklands, Welwyn
This client near Welwyn had a badly scaled Boilermate II cylinder so we needed to descale the hot water tank. The build up of in the heating coil was providing poor performance in terms of heating the hot water and hot water deliver to taps and especially the shower performance.
A powerflush / descaler removed the build up limescale by using a mild acid solution. The result was much improved hot and cold water delivery.
New hot water cylinder installed in Wheathampstead after replacing rotton floorboards
The boiler in this client’s home had been leaking for sometime which had been slowly rotting the floorboards underneath the boiler. Therefore it was not a straight-forward hot water cylinder replacement. The floor was so rotten it needed replacing before the new water cylinder could be fitted.
The photos show how we created a new floor to fit the space before installing the new hot water cylinder and pipework.
A water leak caused corrosion on a temperature valve
As you can see from the photo this client in Hertford had a corroded temperature pressure relief valve on their Mega Flow hot water cylinder due to a water leak. We sourced and replaced the valve then fitted new copper pipework.
This client in Tewin, Herts needed radiators in their new loft conversion. We teed off pipework from the radiator in the adjacent bedroom with pipes running under the floorboards and through the wall. As well as installing the new radiator we added Fernox system inhibitor into the central heating system and included a temperature radiator valve.
