Boiler installation in Roydon, Essex

This is how LH Gas Ltd came to the rescue of an existing client whose boiler stopped working just before it was due for its routine annual service.


When we got to the house we discovered that the gas valve had failed, so we used the ipad app “Parts Arena” to search for availability nationwide and try to source a new valve. This is a brilliant app as we can stay on site and advise the client on how quickly we can resolve their problem.


All new installation


In this case, unfortunately, the part had been discontinued because of the age of the boiler, so our client agreed that a completely new installation would be best. We recommended a Worcester Bosch 24i heat-only boiler, for two good reasons. Not only are Worcester Bosch one of the best makes on the market — they have won the WHICH? “Best Buy” award for the past 7 years — they also offer up to a 10-year guarantee.


As soon as our quotation was agreed we arrived the very next day to carry out the work. The new boiler was connected onto the existing gas, electrical and heating supplies. A new condensate discharge pipe was installed to the nearest available drain point, in accordance with the manufacturers’ guidelines and a horizontal flue kit was added.


Cleaning the system


A Worcester Bosch central heating system filter was also installed on to the return pipe from the radiators and positioned above the boiler. This helps prevent the boiler’s heat exchanger from clogging up with sludge and debris from inside the radiators. This also adds an extra one year guarantee on the boiler.


LH Gas then carried out a chemical power flush that uses a machine to jet chemicals around the heating system to remove as much sludge and debris as possible from the radiators and pipe work. An inhibitor protector chemical is added to the system to help prevent future sludge build up.


The boiler was then commissioned and all legally required paperwork completed. This included registering with “Gas Safe” as compliant with Part L Building Regulations. We also registered the boiler with Worcester so that our client received their extended guarantees.
