Ideal Logic Heat Only Boiler Replacement
It’s easy for people to assume that when a boiler is being replaced in the same location it’s a piece of cake. And for us, yes, we do consider the project to be a straight swap. But… there are always little differences that need to be considered.
For this installation, there were two great aspects that were to remain consistent: The existing 15mm gas supply was enough to supply the new boiler’s output. And the new flue could use the existing flue hole. However, there were some additional details that needed consideration:
The old boiler was not a condensing boiler, so…
A new condensate pipe needed to be added.
The owner wanted the new boiler to fit into a cupboard so it wasn’t visible.
Why did they choose Grand Union Plumbing & Heating?
Customers get peace of mind when they choose Grand Union Plumbing & Heating because we have a great team of gas safe registered heating engineers. However, not only have they been well trained, but their range of skills, as this project illustrated, extend to working with cupboards and paving too.
What was our new boiler replacement process for this project?
Our first consideration was which boiler to recommend. As mentioned above, the owner wanted the new one to fit in a cupboard, so we had to choose one that was the right size and had a rear entry flue option similar to their existing boiler. That’s one of the reasons we chose the Ideal Logic condensing boiler; the other was because it offers a 7 year warranty.
Though the new boiler was to be in the same location, we needed to add in a waste pipe because it was a condensing boiler. This meant we also needed to fit a soakaway under the paving that ran along the side of the house.
We then fitted a new system filter, bled the radiators, and added an inhibitor back into the system to ensure it operated efficiently. Our final task was to wire the new system into the existing thermostat programmer. We then commissioned the system and registered the new boiler with the manufacturer.
The benefits of our solution
Our engineers understand that aesthetics matter. So ensuring that the boiler fitted into the existing cupboard, without disruption elsewhere, was a priority for them. They were also able to fit a new waste pipe without too much ado, and create a soakaway outside under the paving, and still leave everything looking as it had before.
As part of our a new boiler replacement process, we always like to ensure it will run as efficiently as possible and keep future gas bills low. Thus, we make a point of adding inhibitor to the system in order to increase its lifespan and keep things running smoothly.
In a nutshell:
Our team of experienced gas safe registered heating engineers are great at what they do.
We were able to meet the customer’s needs to fit the new boiler in an existing cupboard.
We chose a boiler with a great 7 year warranty.
We made it look like a straight swap… when it wasn’t; they now have a more efficient boiler.
It is our policy to ensure there is a full handover whenever we install a new boiler. Thus we:
Explained the differences between the old system and the new one.
Took the customer through how the new system works.
Confirmed how to set heating and water timing.
We also took the old boiler and all packaging away to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
Did we go the extra mile?
We did indeed. We made every effort to ensure the paving was replaced and looked just as it had before. And it did.
