How will I know which boiler is the best choice for me?

We can discuss your lifestyle, home and requirements and come up with the perfect boiler for you and your family’s needs.

What is a condensing boiler?

A condensing boiler is able to extract more heat from the fuel it uses than a standard efficiency boiler. It also means that less heat is lost through the flue gases.

The term ‘condensing’ boiler refers to the fact that the boilers produce condense from time to time.

Condensing boilers use heat from exhaust gases that would normally be released into the atmosphere through the flue. To use this latent heat, the water vapour from the exhaust gas is turned into liquid condensate.

In order to make the most of the latent heat within the condensate, condensing boilers use a larger heat exchanger, or sometimes a secondary heat exchanger.

How do I contact you to arrange for you to inspect my boiler?

You can phone us on either 01202 366455 or 01425 460267, we will arrange to come out whenever it is convenient for you.

How long will it take to install a central heating system?

This really does depend on the type of installation required and the size of the property, typically for a three bedroom house this can take from 2 to 3 days. Our experienced engineers will do all the pre-work before to enable you to have your water and heating on for as long as possible.

Can you just supply a radiator or new boiler?

Absolutely, no job is too big or small for us, whatever your requirements you can be sure that First Choice will be able to complete it for you.

Do you offer a warranty on the work carried out?

Yes we do, we will outline these details at the time of putting a quote together for you.

I have an old boiler, can you service it?

We can service any boiler, if our engineers on inspection of the boiler feel that there is a need for repair or upgrade then we estimate costing at time of service.

Can I replace my ordinary radiator with a towel radiator?

Yes it is possible to replace your conventional radiator with a towel radiator. They both work exactly the same. Hot water enters the radiator from one side of the radiator, travel through and exits from the other side of the radiator.

How does solar technology work?

The idea behind technologies which use solar energy is to harness the freely available rays from the sun in a useful form.

Do I still need a boiler with solar water heating?

Solar water heating, on a normal domestic scale in the UK, will provide around 50-70%* of the average annual household hot water requirements.

Although the solar panel system may provide most of the hot water required in the summer, the winter results, due to the lower intensity of the sun and the shorter daylight hours, will be reduced.

As such the householder will need a boiler (or suitable alternative) to make up the difference in domestic hot water requirement and for the central heating of the house.
