Preparing for a Central Heating Installation
When planning to install a new central heating system in Stafford, it’s important to choose the best kind of system for your property, location and budget. There are various types available, such as wet systems and electric heaters. With so many years of experience, our team advise on the most suitable option for your needs.
They type of system you choose will determine what preparations you will need to undertake before installation. Common factors our customers in Stafford will need to consider include finding space for the boiler and removing fragile items and furniture to prevent damage and improve access.
While central heating installations can be disruptive, at Parker & Son Plumbing & Heating, we do everything we can to minimise disruption to your home. To make the process as stress free as possible, we install systems one room at a time, leaving each room clean, tidy and usable at the end of the day. This means you can stay in your home.
Pulling Up Flooring
To fit pipes for central heating installations, our engineers need to pull up the flooring, which we replace after installation. The specifics of this stage will vary depending on the type of flooring in your Stafford property. For example, if you have concrete floors, we may have to dig channels for the pipes. However, if installing underfloor heating, we can place this on top of concrete and raise the floor level.
Many homeowners in Stafford and the surrounding areas don’t want exposed pipes. If this is the case, there are a few different ways we can conceal them during central heating installations.
One option is to chase them into the walls. This is an ideal solution for new builds or homes undergoing renovations. Alternatively, a less disruptive option is to box pipes in.
