Which Type of Underfloor Heating is Best For My Home?
Underfloor heating systems commonly offer heat from beneath tiled and stone flooring. These systems can also work beneath a carpeted floor as long as the underlay and carpet density does not prevent the heat from rising through it.
Underfloor heating is more efficient than a single radiator as it requires a lower temperature to be effective since it is distributed throughout the room.
Should I choose electric or water underfloor heating?

Choosing a New Radiator Installation
Many modern home designs include a consideration of how the radiator will fit into the over all decor and chosen style of a room. Although you can choose from a wide variety of radiator colours and styles, one of the most important factors that you should engage in when replacing your radiators or considering the best type of radiator for your home or business, is the way in which it performs.

Central Heating Maintenance
Should I Ensure that I get an Annual Gas Boiler Servicing?
Following a boiler installation or old boiler servicing, you should get it serviced again within 12 months to ensure that it is working correctly. This is a required service that homeowners must complete and many customers wish to understand why they should pay the extra cost.
Most gas boiler manufacturers advise that your boiler undertakes an annual boiler servicing to ensure that it remains operating efficiently. If you fail to carry out a boiler servicing by a Gas Safe registered engineer, you may find that your manufacturer guarantee becomes void.
Getting your boiler serviced on an annual basis requires additional money spent each year but the results of not having your boiler checked and serviced could become even more costly and result in loosing your guarantee, having to pay for costly repairs or a boiler replacement.

How can power flushing improve my central heating system performance?
Power flushing offers a solution to clearing out radiators, boilers and heating systems which are not performing well due to a silt or debris build up.
Power flushing forcibly clears the system using high velocity water at a low pressure. This allows for effective cleaning without causing damage to the system. Additional cleaning agents or chemicals can be added to improve the results.
What are the signs that my central heating requires a power flushing?
Your heating system probably requires a power flushing by a qualified plumbing engineer if you experience cold spots on your radiators, noise in your boiler or your heating is slow to heat up.
