Types of Boilers
Typical savings & the types of central heating systems
How much could you save?
This will depend on how old and inefficient your existing boiler is.
Typical annual saving based on your present boiler rating
G ( < 70%) £300 plus
F (70–74%) £200 plus
E (74–78%) £150 plus
D (78–82%) £105 plus
These are estimated figures based on installing a new A-rated condensing boiler in a semi-detached home with three bedrooms.
Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. All well-maintained boilers burn their fuel very efficiently, but they inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue. A condensing boiler has a bigger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.
Installing a new boiler
If it is time to change your boiler, then the first thing is to decide what type of boiler you need.

The right boiler
Most old gas boilers are regular boilers - they have a separate hot water cylinder to store hot water, rather than providing it directly from the boiler. When you replace your boiler you have a choice of buying a new regular boiler, and keeping your hot water cylinder, or buying a combi boiler that doesn't need a cylinder.
A regular boiler is actually more efficient than a combi at producing hot water in the first place, but then some heat is lost from the hot water cylinder, so a combi may be more efficient overall. The best option for you will depend on a number of factors:
How much hot water do you use?
A large family using lots of hot water could be better off with a regular boiler – a smaller household using less may be better off with a combi.
Are you short of space?
A combi boiler doesn’t need a hot water cylinder, and so needs less space.
Firstly, consider which type of boiler you have or may need from the following three types:-
2. Combination (Combi)
Whether you're on a low budget or require a high end installation, then we have some of the best offers available anywhere.
New finance options available
Buying a new boiler can be a big investment for any household and you may not always have the funds at your fingertips. It is because of this that we have put together a competitive finance solution designed to help you get the benefit of a more efficient heating system now and spread the cost over a period of time to suit your budget.
As a Worcester Accredited Installer, we can handle the entire process, installation and finance.
Regular servicing is an important part of maintaining tip top condition of your boiler and it's very important to have an annual service, not only for safety reasons but also to prevent future breakdowns when you least expect them.
Some of the reasons / symptoms that might require your boiler to be serviced.
This is an outline of the service procedures we do.
1. Every service we undertake has a visual check to comply to building, electrical and gas safe regulations.
2. We then do a pre-service check where we fire the boiler up, check basic operations and identify faults if any.
3. All main components will be checked, must be clean and free from damage. The main components we check are burners, injectors, heat exchangers, condensing syphon and fan. Also as part of our routine check we inspect pipework and electrical connections.
4. We use our flue gas analyser to check the gas valve and make sure we have complete combustion.
5. Our final check is to analyse the boiler with our flue gas analyser to make sure it is running to manufactures specification.
6. Should we find a fault with any of our checks then we will advice you if there are any additional costs for the repair.
7. Finally we will issue a benchmark Gas safety certficate and a print out from our analyser to confirm the readings.
reads Our standard service charge for a condensing boiler is £85 including VAT, excluding any parts should they be required. Older non-condensing boilers are subject to a higher service charge and before a price can be agreed we would need to know the make, model, age, and any existing problems prior to booking.

Freezing condensing pipe (How to keep your boiler operating)
Scientists have said that potentially we could be in for the coldest winter for nearly a century. This fact sheet will help you identify what to do and how to prevent freezing should these very low temperatures be reached.
We would like to advice you what you can do to prevent your Worcester Boiler condensate pipe from freezing and how you can protect your home internal hot and cold water supply pipework from freezing. How can I tell if the boiler’s condense trap/discharge pipe has frozen?
If all 3 statements are true, you should now try to reset your boiler. This can be done by holding in the ‘reset’ button (this can be found on the boiler control panel) for 10 seconds. Once you have released the button you should wait 2 to 3 minutes to see if the boiler refi res.
If the boiler does not re-fire and it is emitting a gurgling sound, then it is almost certain that your condense is frozen. If you cannot hear a gurgling noise you should still proceed to check your condense pipe.
The condensate pipe is a plastic pipe (black, white or grey), coming from the bottom of your boiler. If this pipe is less than 32mm in diameter and runs outside of the property or through a non-heated area then it should be fully insulated with waterproof lagging. If it is not fully lagged and the 3 criteria (in step 1 above) apply then it is likely that it is frozen and needs to be thawed.
How can the condensate pipe be thawed?
You should exercise extreme caution at all times when attempting to identify and thaw a condensate pipe.
Compact Convector Radiator
We supply the compact convector radiator which is one of the most energy efficient designs on the market. It only requires a small amount of water to function; it heats up very quickly and is easy to control. The large convector plate within the design means that heat is expelled across a greater surface area, distributing heat more effectively around the room. With straight lines and quality finishing, the Compact is a sleek asset to both traditional and contemporary interiors. The radiator is hardwearing because of its smooth and solid scratch resistant coating, and easy to clean.
Every radiator we supply is guaranteed for ten years from the date of installation against defects caused by faulty materials or manufacture. We will replace the defective product with a similar or technically corresponding convector subject to the terms and conditions below.
The guarantee will not cover damages that are due to faulty storage and handling after delivery, nor damages that are due to faulty use of the convector, such as inside and outside rust, use of corrosive substances, too high pressure or damage due to freezing.
This guarantee does not cover costs incurred for change of product, production loss, loss of profit or any other indirect costs.

Portfolio Building for new engineers wishing to enter the Gas Industry
One of the many problems facing engineers who want to become qualified in the Gas industry, is that they must produce a portfolio of work before they can sit there Gas qualification and this is not easy for many students to do.
This is where Midland Central Heating are unique and can help.
Midland Central Heating run a Fast Track porfolio program, which includes everything that the engineer requires prior to sitting the ACS Exam.
Evidence for your portfolio will be produced and documented in the following way.

Maybe you only require a few more jobs to finish off your portfolio then this is also possible.
How to make sure your home is Gas Safe
Gas Safety Week: Fighting for a Gas Safe nation We work alongside Gas Safe and are proud to support Gas Safety Week. Gas Safety Week is an annual safety week to raise awareness of Gas Safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It is coordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on gas. Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Every year thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning. It is a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning. By taking care of your gas appliances properly you are taking care of your home and your loved ones. Follow these few simple checks to keep you and your family safe.
For gas safety advice or to find and check an engineer visit the Gas Safe Register website at www.GasSafeRegister.co.uk. Alternatively call the free helpline on 0800 408 5500.
