Heating Upgrades

What is a heating upgrade?

A heating upgrade consists of the installation of a new efficient heating system which is suitable for gas and oil. Existing pipework can be utilised or new pipework can be installed. To get the best out of the new boiler it is advised that the radiators are also upgraded as they are more efficient and produce more heat. The provision of a new hot water cylinder is also installed which is factory insulated which helps retain hot water for longer periods.

New heating controls are installed which help maintain the temperature of each room, these are also known as room stats. The use of zoning which is a very cost-effective way of saving energy. 

Once the heating upgrade is installed a member of our team will explain to the homeowner how the new system works and how they can get the best out of it. At CDM Contracts, we aim to provide an efficient and high standard of work with as minimal disruption as possible.
