Replace existing central heating - Central Heating job in Birmingham, West Midlands
2Replace existing central heating
We are about to replace our bathroom and would like a power shower rather than the weak gravity fed one we have now. The existing boiler is about 10 years old, and it is in good working order but it is not a condenser. Our radiators are fairly old and the pipe work is all microbore (10mm I think). We have been advised that if we replace the boiler to a condenser we are at high risk of leaks as the system is under much more pressure.
As a result I would like a quote for a complete new central heating system. I really need an estimate from the details below rather than a request to come and price the job. I realise it will only be an estimate, but it will save us both time and effort if you are not in the right price bracket. If you are missing any info please just ask.
The house is concrete ground floor and floorboards upstairs.
New boiler in a different location (still within easy reach of the utilities needed).
Supply of 10 new radiators/pipework as follows (assumed the size of the old ones is about right, although that will obviously need to be checked):
New small radiator to heat small toilet room size is 100x140
New small radiator to heat small linen cupboard-smallest one they do!
Pipework only two radiators which have been replaced recently
6 radiators upstairs, 6 downstairs. Boiler will be downstairs.
Removal and disposal of old radiators boiler, immersion heater/roof space tanks.
Please specify what boiler you think would be suitable to ensure we can run the 12 radiators, the hot water and a power shower.
- Feedback left for Total Heating
A really top notch job. Great advice before the job in a simple no nonsense way.
On the job itself I could not be happier. Nothing too much trouble. Chris and Mark wanted to make sure everything was 100% before leaving the job. The odd issues that cropped up were explained and discussed before proceeding with the agreed solution. They were not the cheapest quote I had, but I am certain they were the best value.
All in all, Total Heating take some beating!
