The range is now also able to operate with natural gas E, LL and LPG, where previously natural gas was the only fuel accepted. Improved efficiency and reduced maintenance Th... [read full article]

Euroheat boiler helps reduce electricity bill

A heating over-haul carried out by Euroheat approved installers, 4 Wood, has helped a 19th century stone house, set in the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, to cut its heating bills and manage its estate more effectively. To be certain that their timber was up to the job, Euroheat invited the owners of Hendre Farm, St. Davids, to test the product at its headquarters in Bishops Frome. Following a consultation with the design team at Euroheat, it was decided a HDG 50 boiler would be suitable for the project, replacing the existing oil-fired system which had clocked-up running costs in excess of £4,000 per year. The farm boasts 20 acres of scrub willow that the owners were initially concerned would not be a suitable fuel. However, after a trial run with a HDG 50 boiler at Eur... [read full article]

An environmentally friendly solution - Boiler

Boiler condensate should never be put straight to ground or down the side of buildings without first being neutralised. The waste from condensing boilers is highly acidic and can dissolve the lime in cement based mortar. The average domestic condensing boiler may produce 800litres of acid per year at about ph4.0 which adds up to millions of litres of acid discharged nationwide. Therefore, correct disposal of the condensate is important in avoiding serious damage to the structure of your property and our environment. In most installations, the condensate can be removed through the normal gravity drain route to an internal drain connection, in conjunction with the boiler manufacturer’s instructions. However for applications where the boiler has to be installed on internal walls or... [read full article]
