Central Heating Information Sheet
What is central heating?
A central heating system provides warmth to the whole interior of your home via a system of radiators and associated pipework to create an even temperature.
How does it differ from other forms of heating?
The heat generation occurs in one place (e.g. a combination boiler or a wood heater with wet-back) and is then distributed from that ‘central’ point to the radiators.
Combination boilers are fuelled by gas
Natural gas where available, or LPG in rural areas.
Radiators are unobtrusive steel panels that are usually fitted under windows to provide optimum efficiency. Each radiator is individually and thermostatically controlled giving you greater flexibility. All pipework can be concealed.
Why would I choose to have central heating?
If your home is currently heated by a conventional wood heater or heat-pump you may find that there are significant differences in room temperatures around the house. With an even balance of temperatures in each room you can relax in a homely atmosphere at any time of the year.
If you choose a combination boiler, a central heating system can provide all domestic hot water for greater convenience.
And with rising electricity prices, you will also have peace of mind in using wood or gas to heat your home.
Who can install central heating?
Central heating must be installed by qualified and experienced plumbers and gas-fitters who have competence in this field. Installation would take around three days.
