When dealing with either electrics or water water works and piping it is best to leave these jobs to the professionals unless you have a lot of experience and know exactly what you are doing.

Power showers / pumps
Who doesn't like a nice hot shower? Especially when it's a powerful spray. A power shower is cheap solution if you just have too little water pressure. Power showers produce a stronger stream than the alternative like an electric shower or a mixer. A power shower mixes the hot and cold water and uses an internal pump to increase the water pressure. They are most ideal for homes that have plentiful hot water. From now on you will probably take longer showers!
We can provide you with up to five different quotes for power showers from local product specialists in your area so that you can compare offers and find the best deal.

Water tanks / Immersion heaters
An immersion heater is an electrical element that is in direct contact with the water usually in an enclosed tank ( water tank ) and heats the water up. This element is a thin metal tube and contains an electrical resistance heater, which is then encased in an insulating material.
This heater will provide the hot water for the property allowing you to have hot water for the bath and shower.

Central Heating Systems
In the simplest sense, a central heating system is a central unit that produces heat which is then dispersed around a building to control its temperature. One of the earliest central heating systems was called a ‘hypocaust’ and was built by the Romans who used large furnaces to produce heat and conducted that heat under floors and through pipes in the wall. Although technology has come along way since the hypocaust, the principle of how the system works is very similar.
The heat in a central heating system is normally generated through the combustion of fuels in a furnace or a boiler. Boilers come in all shapes and sizes and also use many different types of fuel, see what type suits you best. There are also solar powered heat generation as well as heat pumps which convert cold air from outside into hot air. The heat that is generated is then transported around a property through pipes often known as ‘ductwork’. The heat can be transported in different forms; air, water or steam. The system normally then pumps the heat through to heaters or radiators in rooms to boost the temperature, although there are also special underfloor heating systems where the heat comes from pipes under a floor rather than through radiators.
If you choose for a energy efficient way of heating your home or with renewable energy you might be eligible for grants or cheap loans.

Gas boilers are the most common type of boiler with lower running costs. Brand new gas central heating boilers in the UK have to be over 90% efficient and efficient gas boilers normally use the 'condensing' method, using a highly effective heat exchanger within the flue which reuses wasted heat. Often more expensive to install, but provide long term savings for future energy bills. There are a few different styles of boilers available, the most suitable depends on your properties specifications:
A regular central heating system uses the most space as it requires; a boiler unit, controls, feed tank, expansion cistern and a hot water cylinder. It is one of the most efficient systems and a perfect choice for large family homes with no constraint on space.
A very popular choice for new boiler installations as it is highly efficient and space saving. Combi boilers work by heating water directly from the mains, so no water tank required, and provides hot water on demand for both personal use and for the central heating. Ideal for homes with limited space.
Is a device which is normally fitted to a stove or open fireplace to provide heat and hot water.
It is very similar to a regular boiler, except that it does not require a feed and expansion tank, which frees space in lofts. But the boiler itself is a slightly larger as it contains an expansion vessel filling loop and pump. The advantage of these boilers is that hot water is pumped directly from the boiler around the radiator system and hot water tanks resulting in faster response times and lower running costs.

Radiators and Heating system
We all have a basic knowledge and understanding of what radiators do. Though very few of us would dare change one, or have an idea what to do if it appears not to be working correctly.
If the radiator appears not to be working correctly as in it is not heating up at all or only partly heating up, then you can do a couple of simple checks before seeking assistance form a professional. You can check the radiator valve, which is the hand wheel allowing flow of water into the radiator, make sure this is set to open. Also there is what is known as a lock shield valve, this sits at the opposite end of the radiator and controls hot water flow into the radiator, this may need adjusting.
If you are looking to change you radiator, or relocate one or even many then Solvari can help. Just please submit your details and let solvari do the work for you, or you can search for a professional tradesman yourself on our "find a pro" page.
