Energy Efficient and Renewable Heating
What is the Greenest way to heat your home? Part 1: Gas Boilers

Compared to older boilers which were able to convert about 60% of the energy used into heat, a new condensing boiler will convert over 90% of fuel into heat.

Can I Save Money by Replacing the Boiler in my Home or Business?
When considering the amount of money you could save on your heating bills by installing a more energy efficient boiler, it is important to remember that about 55% of your total energy costs is spent on the work that your boiler undertakes.
By assessing your current boiler and comparing it to newer A-rated systems you will be able to quickly notice the difference that a new boiler installation can make to your household bills.
The level of energy efficiency of your boiler is rated on a scale of A – G. The most energy efficient boilers are rated A and the least energy efficient models are rated G.
Replacing your older boiler with an A-rated system can save the average home up to £305 per year on your heating bills. Installing a new boiler with a complete heating control system provides significant savings on your energy bills and also reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from your home.

How can an emergency plumber assist me with problems in the kitchen?
Finding that your kitchen sink has become blocked up is a common problem which requires the assistance of an emergency plumber. Kitchen sinks often get clogged up with leftover food and waste products from meal preparation.
A blocked sink can cause the water in a sink to fill but not escape. This is especially a problem if your kitchen is being used for a dinner party or important function where guests are going to produce a large amount of washing up and it will not look very appetising to leave unwashed crockery piled up for the evening.
Calling an emergency plumber saves you the time and inconvenience of attending to a blocked sink with fast results. Calling an experienced and fully trained plumber will help you get the problem solved so that you can enjoy the rest of your evening in peace, not wrestling with your plumbing.

Bathroom Installations in Small Spaces
If you only have a small space available to create your bathroom, wetroom or cloakroom, there are many products which are sold in smaller sizes than the standard model. Hanging storage units and rails from the walls also frees up floor space which gives the illusion of the room being larger than it is.
Glass shelves, hooks and towel rails offer additional wall mounted storage. By installing heated towel rails you can benefit further from freeing up wall space which would be required for a radiator.
