GAS FITTERS WIND DOWN FOR THE WEEKEND

A little on our gas fitters

Today we have a little information on our gas fitters, the evolution of the combi boiler, British manufacturers and mains water supply.

So as this week pulls to a close some are preparing their day off tomorrow or their night out Saturday. At Ability, we set the weekend rota between the Office, phones and Engineers on call. That’s how it is here at Ability, and this is how we continue to grow, with hard work and continuous long hours at times. Our gas fitters are always on call. mains water supply-british manufacturers-gas fitters

We are looking to provide you with an insight into the industry week by week and day by day if we can. So our regular Bolg posts and news feed updates are how we hope to keep up a good connection with our customers and build a relationship based on the truth about us and how we work, to improve our service to you the customer. So please call our gas fitters today.

Today we are going to talk about the Combination Boiler. A concept of the boiler that was not thought to take off in the industry, it was a revolution of its day and today dominates over 60% of the UK boiler market. This has seen us utilise our mains water supply.

The Combination Boiler-British Manufacturers

A combi boiler is both a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler, combined (hence the name) within one compact unit. Therefore, no separate hot water cylinder is required, offering space saving within the property.

A brief history of its arrival and The mains water supply

British manufacturers were aware of what was happening in Europe and in the 1970’s a number of them had a stab at the combination boiler, but it was not until the late 1970’s when the imports started to arrive that the British manufacturers really started to take notice. We realised the benefits of using our mains water supply.

Even though the imports had started to arrive, it was only a trickle at this stage, and one of the main problems was that a mains water connection to a central heating system was simply not permitted and the use of makeup bottles and the like were seen as a poor alternative. A change in water regulations in the 80’s to allow a temporary mains ‘filling loop connection’ to be made to the mains water supply was precisely what the combination boiler market had been waiting for.
