Based in Exeter, England, Stovax Ltd was established in 1981 to design, manufacture and distribute wood burning stoves and fireside accessories. By 1988, a decision was made to diversify into the manufacture of gas-fired versions of Stovax stoves and a separate company, Gazco Ltd was formed to develop and produce them. Today, as sister companies, Stovax and Gazco continue to work very closely together. Each company has developed continuously its product range such that the combined businesses have grown to become one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of stoves, fireplaces and fires, with exports to countries worldwide.

In 2006, Stovax Ltd purchased Yeoman, a long established manufacturer of wood-burning stoves which specialised in more rustic, rural styling. The company continues to produce a distinctive and separate range of wood burning, multi-fuel, gas and electric stoves and fires under the Yeoman brand.
Stovax is also the UK and Republic of Ireland distributor for some additional fireplaces and stove brands including Dovre, Lotus, Nordpeis & Varde.

Stovax high-efficiency stoves and fires will continue to help provide ‘green’ heating for the 21st Century, while the company commits itself to research the alternative technologies that will provide heating in the years ahead.

Annual boiler servicing is an important part of servicing boilers and heating system maintenance. It’s more than just a safety check – boiler servicing will check the condition and performance of your appliance to ensure it’s operating at peak performance, as well as making sure any seals, gaskets or the heat exchanger aren’t showing any signs of wear and tear. Your Ability engineer will also check that other parts of your heating system – such as your flue – is operating correctly and safely. We will ensure that your safety is our priority.

Plumbers work within residential, commercial or industrial properties to install and maintain water systems, including disposal, drainage and gas systems. In new construction, they work with blueprints to configure and install the plumbing systems. For maintenance and repair jobs, plumbers sometimes need to perform minor carpentry, such as cutting holes in walls to access pipes or hanging supports to hold pipes in place. They also install fixtures, such as shower-heads, sinks and bathtubs, and appliances that use water, such as dishwashers and water heaters.
Pipe-fitters generally work in power and industrial plants, within the plumbing field or gas industry, where they install and maintain the pipe systems used for industrial purposes, such as manufacturing, power generation or large-scale heating and cooling systems. They work with both high-pressure and low-pressure systems. Pipe-fitters also install the automated controls that are used to regulate industrial systems, and they generally specialize in one specific type of system. so look for the gas industry and you will find your engineer in the plumbing field.
Today’s maintenance consisted of 5 home visits for 3 regular customers and 2 new also we are carrying out boiler maintenance and boiler pressure on all boilers old and new, a vast spectrum of performance and capability’s in operation and efficiency. Tom our senior engineer has finished for the day and Daniel is now on call. So we are always available and on hand to help you with your plumbing needs.
If you are unfortunate enough to end up with frozen pipes your heating will come to a standstill, but luckily it’s a problem that’s easily fixed.
The best thing to do is to place a hot water bottle on the pipe, or pour warm water on it and then reset your thermostat.
Alternatively, you can boil a kettle and pour the boiling water over your pipes. You may need to do this a few times to properly thaw them though. This might take a while, but it will help keep your boiler service and maintenance cost low.
The most obvious sign of a dodgy boiler is quite simply when it’s not heating up water anymore. There’s no surer sign of a boiler not working than the heating not coming on, but the trouble may well start long before that, so it pays to know what to look out for.
One of the clearest signs to look out for is whether your boiler flame is clear blue. An orange or yellow gas flame is a great indicator of a problem and means it’s time to call your boiler engineer and we can carry our annual maintenance.
Today we have a little information on our gas fitters, the evolution of the combi boiler, British manufacturers and mains water supply.
