Gas Central Heating
We undertake central heating repairs, replacements, and new installations. We can take your old unit and replace ducting with more efficient ducting with less heat loss. New furnaces are more energy efficient and have lower running costs.
A standard installation will require a new gas line installed under the building or gas meter and run it to the new location. A return air duct will be taken to the hallway and new ducting taken from the central heating furnace to the new outlets, usually situated near windows and outside walls. The grills are 300mm x 100mm and have a closing damper on each one.
We install a thermostat in the hall and connect it to the furnace.
Gas furnaces can be fueled by different types of fuel including LPG and diesel. But we recommend natural gas as it is cheaper fuel and is environment-friendly.
Buildings with central heating should be insulated in the ceiling but also in the walls and under the floor. The windows should be double glazed.
