Why Smart Heating Controls? Take a Look at the Advantages

Standard heating controls allow you to adjust the temperature of your home. It’s your control panel to help you stay warm during the cooler months. If you have a programmable thermostat, as many people do today, you can go as far as changing those settings based on the time of day. For example, your home’s heating system can keep things a bit cooler while you’re at work all day, then warm it up when you reach home in the evening. If you’re already taking advantage of a system like that, is there really any need to move forward with a smart heating control system? Absolutely. Take a look at these benefits.

  • Smart Heating Controls Learn! Programmable controls can only do what you tell them to do. Smart heating controls, though, take any errors you may make out of the equation entirely. They learn both your schedule and what you prefer. That means that they can raise and lower the temperature and humidity levels based on what you teach it. It can detect when you’re home early and when you’re gone late, and that may mean hidden energy savings you couldn’t previously recover.
  • Helpful Reminders: Heating systems require maintenance, and smart controls can help you remember what you should do and when. You can even set it to alert you if there appears to be a problem with your system.
  • Track Usage: Often it’s difficult to understand just how much energy you may be using (or saving) with simple calculations. Smart controls, though, allow you to see exactly what you’ve used, compare it to other users or even yourself in previous months, and truly understand when you’re most likely to use more energy and when you’re most likely to save it. That can help you redefine how you heat your home, which can save you more in the long run.

Keston boilers London

Shopping for a boiler is never an easy process, but among the brands, you’re likely to come across in your search is Keston. A well-known brand, they’re one of the best choices if you’re looking for energy efficiency and real power in one affordable package.

Choices Abound

Keston boilers offer you a number of different output options. From 30kW to 55kW, they have what you need. All of their boilers, though, mean you’re buying into the latest energy savings technology. Each one is Energy Saving Trust endorsed, and they have a high SEDBUK rating. Some studies have even found energy efficiency ratings of up to 110% part load with a turndown rate of 5:1. In fact, the entire Keston range has exceeded the energy efficiency criteria of the ETL, so the possibility of taking advantage of financial benefits from various energy savings schemes does exist when you purchase one of these boilers.

They’re ideal in residential applications, particularly larger ones, and they also work well for light commercial settings, depending on the model you decide to purchase.

Underfloor Heating London https://www.pnpm.co.uk/underfloor-heating-london/ Wed, 27 Dec 2017 09:26:27 +0000 https://www.pnpm.co.uk/?p=29396

Did you know that underfloor heating has become one of the fastest growing home improvements in the UK in recent years? Many heating services, in London and throughout the UK, have said many customers are interested in this type of heat. Wondering why it has become so popular? The benefits of this heating style are nothing short of enormous.

The Benefits of Underfloor Heating

  • Energy Efficient: One of the biggest benefits for many UK homeowners is the energy efficiency they enjoy with underfloor heat. The heat distribution is far more uniform with this type of heat than any other. It manages to envelop a room in warmth at a much lower temperature than many other methods. Radiators tend to circulate heat inefficiently, which means they need to run for an extensive amount of time. With underfloor heat, though, it’s spread across the room, and the heat rises throughout the room. One study found that underfloor heating could save UK residents up to 15% on their heating bills.
  • Creates Clean: Tired of dealing with the dust mites that never seem to go away? Underfloor heating can actually make them disappear. With traditional radiators, the cold tends to stay at ground level, which makes it an ideal breeding ground for dust mites. Underfloor heating, though, leaves those spaces far too warm and dry for breeding, and studies have shown that dust mite populations can be reduced by up to 80% after underfloor heating is installed.
  • Heating Flexibility: Central heating controls mean a single thermostat. Many underfloor systems, though, have a dedicated thermostat for each room, which means there’s no obligation for one room to be any warmer than any other room. Keep your bedroom a bit cooler than your living room or change the temperature of the guest bedroom on an as-needed basis.

Underfloor heating works with a variety of floor types. To learn more about this heating innovation, contact us today.

Emergency Heating Service and Boiler Repairs

Imagine this. It’s one a.m. It’s snowing. The wind is blowing. The temperature is dropping. Suddenly, your boiler is no longer producing heat. Where do you turn in a situation like this? Look to us.

A Common Problem

Many people suffer heating problems throughout the winter months. Remember Doris in February? With 80 mph winds and plenty of snow, a boiler failure there meant some very cold times if your pilot light wouldn’t stay lit or your boiler just kept turning off (both common boiler issues). With plenty of winters still headed our way, ensuring you know what to do when that happens is an absolute must.

The Next Step

If your boiler does suddenly quit working whether it’s during a storm or simply a cold weekend, the first thing you should do is give us a call. Our emergency team will be there the moment it happens, and we’ll be there as soon as we can. Our team will offer prompt, professional service and repair, no matter what the weather outside.

After you’ve given us a call, there are a few other things you can do. First, open your cabinet doors beneath the sink in the kitchen. That will help keep your pipes from freezing. Next, if you have particularly drafty windows or doors, close your drapes or hang a blanket in your windows. This will help keep the cold air out of your rooms. You may also want to close the doors to the rooms you don’t use frequently. That will keep the remaining warm air in the rooms where you need it most. Be sure to minimise those coming in and leaving the house to help keep the cold air in. If you have to sleep while your boiler isn’t working, try to share bedding as much as possible, as it will keep you a bit warmer through the night. Be sure to dress warmly and break out those extra blankets.

Emergency heating service or boiler repairs are no problem. Give us a call today to handle all of your preventative maintenance.

Viessmann Boiler Benefits https://www.pnpm.co.uk/viessmann-boilers-benefits/ Mon, 06 Nov 2017 23:11:13 +0000 https://www.pnpm.co.uk/?p=29201

4 Big Benefits of Viessman Boilers

The cold season is quickly approaching. And, depending on the year, it seems like the “cold season” lasts anywhere from10 to 12 months! This is why it is essential to outfit your home with the best – most efficient – heating system possible. A Viessman boiler is the simple solution you need for a warm and cosy winter.

Simplicity in a Complex World

Heating systems can be complex – just like most things in life. But Viessman simplifies it. By offering state-of-the-art systems, heating your home has never been more easy, convenient – and easy on the wallet. Some of the key benefits Viessman delivers:

  • Better efficiency. By utilising the latest in condensing technology, Viessman delivers superb efficiency and cost-savings for users. Today, all gas boilers are required to be condensing boilers; this means that they condense water vapour in the exhaust gases. This enables them to recover latent heat, which would be wasted otherwise.

Viessman goes a few steps beyond: they harness technologies like Weather Compensation, which adjusts heating depending on the temperature outside. This allows exceptional control of your home’s temperature while maximising efficiency. You can save up to 15% more fuel each month.

 

  • Greater comfort. With Viessman, comfort and efficiency go hand-in-hand. You don’t have to sacrifice (and shiver) in order to save money. Innovations such as Vitoflow Hydraulic Balancing, for instance, ensure that each room is supplied with the optimal amount of heat while energy is used in the most efficient way. Vitoflow increases efficiency by up to 15%. Win-win.

 

  • A solution for everyone. Find the right system for you. Viessman offers a wide array of products, including various gas and oil boilers, as well as biomass and solar options. Talk to a trusted heating and plumbing professional to find the right fit based on the size of your home, your ideal temperatures and how much room you have in your heating/home improvement budget.

 

  • “Future-proof.” No one wants to invest in a system that is obsolete in a year or two. Viessman systems are compatible with many fuel sources. You can, for example, use your gas boiler in conjunction with a solar thermal heating system. This delivers great hot water backup, lower energy bills and unbeatable flexibility. And, given the terrific durability of these boilers, you can be confident that you won’t need a replacement anytime soon.

 

The bottom line: a Viessman boiler will save you money, increase efficiency, run beautifully and last through season after season. Contact us to learn more – and to schedule your own installation.

Radiators https://www.pnpm.co.uk/radiator-systems/ Sun, 05 Nov 2017 21:52:59 +0000 https://www.pnpm.co.uk/?p=29189

When Your Radiator Just Isn’t Warm Enough

Radiator systems offer some real advantages to homeowners. They’re more common, which makes them a bit easier to replace, and they add a level of comfort and quiet that other heating systems simply don’t. In some cases, though, you’ll find that one radiator just isn’t getting as warm as it should, and that can create real frustration. Even if your boiler is in good shape, it’s possible one radiator isn’t fully warming up. Wondering what you can do? There are actually a number of steps you can take on your own.

  • The Valve: Before you do anything else, make sure the radiator valve is open. Even if you didn’t close it, someone else in your home may have shut it off because it got too hot in that room or your child may have been playing with the valve itself. Once you’ve verified that it’s on, you’ll want to make sure the thermostat valve is set correctly. If it’s too low, you may not be getting the warmth you want.
  • The Lockshield: Just opposite the main valve, you’ll find a lockshield that controls the flow of the water into the radiator. The more hot water that passes through the radiator, the more heat you’ll get to that particular unit. Adjust yours to make sure you’re getting enough hot water to keep the room warm.
  • Limescale: With any of these valves, you may discover limescale, which can block them and keep the necessary heat from reaching that room. In that case, it’s absolutely time to flush the system. While this is something you can handle on your own, calling in PNPM to ensure the system is flushed correctly and completely is a great idea.

If you’ve checked everything and you still have a cooler radiator than you’d like, it’s time to call in the professionals. At PNPM, we’re ready to help you deal with your radiator issues now. With an emergency call out services and the best tradesmen in the business, we have the services you need most. Give us a call today to learn more.

Choosing a Plumbing and Heating Services Company Before It Becomes an Emergency

It’s freezing outside the moment it happens. Your boiler begins making a strange banging noise that won’t quit, and suddenly, you have absolutely no heat. This is not the moment to begin researching plumbing and heating service companies in your area.

You can choose the best team to meet your needs right now.

Where Do I Begin?

One of the best places to start as you search for plumbing services is your friends, family, and colleagues. Ask around to figure out who they’ve used in the past, and whether the services were worthwhile. If you can’t find any recommendations, it may be time to do some searching online. Terms like “plumbing services London” or your direct location are a fairly good place to start. After you have several names to consider, it’s time to narrow things down. You’ll want to find out how long each company has been in business, and get a few references. Ask about insurance, and whether each job is guaranteed. You may also want to learn more about whether the plumber you’re considering belongs to a guaranteeing professional body to help offer you a little-added security. After you have some answers, the next step is to reach out to the company. Find out whether they provide services in your area. Make certain they offer written quotes, emergency services, and other features you find important.
