Install or replace a new Portobello heating system for less
A New Portobello central heating has a number of advantages, with the biggest one being even heating throughout your building. Old systems can be unsafe to use, and also tend to use more energy than models that are available today. Save money, ensure your safety, and stay warm and toasty by having new system installed today.
When it comes to fuel, you can choose from gas, oil, electric or geothermal heat to name just a few. Electric systems operate quietly, but do not produce as warm a heat as other types do. Gas and oil both burn cleanly, but the price of these fuels can fluctuate a great deal, thereby making it more difficult to budget. Geothermal heat is environmentally friendly, but could require extensive digging before installation can take place. One of the contractors in our network can explain the advantages and disadvantages of the different types to help you make the right decision.

Many advantages can be enjoyed when you install Portobello central heating, including:
Most boiler systems found in UK homes were originally designed for zone heating. This simply means that each unit can be modified via a knob or thermostat to allow a certain amount of heated water to flow through the radiator, thus allowing the homeowner to control the temperature of that zone. Central heating is different in that it’s possible to set a centralized thermostat and allow the radiators to warm the home to that set temperature. The thermostat controls when the boiler unit heats up and when it cools back down again. Although each radiator in each zone can still be adjusted manually, it’s possible to set one temperature, adjust the radiators accordingly, and simply let the boiler and thermostat work together to keep your home or office comfortable.
Often the best option for heating your home - and the most efficient - is the combi boiler. This boiler type provides two different outputs; one is for potable water used for cooking, bathing, and other household tasks. The other heat output goes directly into a heating system, which is run via a thermostat that tells the unit when to produce heat and when to stop. Combi boilers are typically condensing boilers, as well, which are among some of the safest and most efficient of them all.
Typical central heating installation prices vary based upon the size, type, and efficiency rating of the unit. Models that are more energy efficient will cost more initially, but can actually save enough money to pay for this cost difference over time. The location and condition of existing utility lines will also play a role, as making repairs or re-routing lines will add to the overall bottom line as well.
Although it may look straightforward and relatively easy to install in your home, the truth is that this project should only be performed by a qualified professional. Hiring a professional may seem expensive at the time, but you will certainly save money over the long term because the unit will be correctly installed. A qualified Portobello expert will also ensure that the right-sized unit is installed as well, ensuring that you are able to get as much use out of your unit as possible for many years to come.

Yes, central heating can actually be installed in any Portobello building, including garages and outbuildings. If you do not have any existing ductwork, you may need to install some first.
Yes. It can be quite costly to have installed, but once you have been using it for a while, you will wonder how you coped without it. It will however pay for itself by means of convenience levels within a few years.
Yes. If your existing boiler is not set up to work with a central heat system, it’s possible to convert your system or install a new one that is compatible.
Absolutely! In fact, installing a programmable thermostat can pay for itself in the first month’s energy savings alone. These allow you to set specific temperatures for certain times of the day. For example, you may choose to set your temperature a little cooler while you’re away at work, on holiday, or even in bed asleep. Then, the thermostat can gradually increase the temperature before you arrive home or wake up, so you won’t even notice the difference. That small fluctuation in temperature can save you hundreds of pounds annually, too.
The cost of installation will depend on the size of your home and the unit being installed to keep your property warm and comfortable. Any of our network of qualified engineers will be able to let you know more or less how long the installation will take after you have accepted a quote from them.
While this may seem possible, it is strongly recommended that you leave the installation of your central heating system to a qualified and experienced Portobello professional. This will ensure that the unit is correctly installed and that you obtain a full warranty on it - many homeowners’ insurance policies will not pay out for losses or damages if a qualified professional has not installed a system.
We only need a few details about the type of heating installation you're considering. If you're not sure the professionals can help advise.
