Transform Your Home with Underfloor Heating

By on Jul 21, 2015 in News |

Here at Cheshire Plumbers we’re experts at fitting underfloor heating systems in a variety of environments from commercial properties to homes. Underfloor heating has a wide range of benefits for your home and business, and has now become a common and desirable feature for both new build and renovation projects. One of the biggest benefits is the distribution of heat to keep your toes warmed up! The Advantages of Underfloor Heating The underfloor heating works by weaving a large amount of high tech plastic pipes under the floors, which heats up and this heat radiates through the flooring. This means the heat is evenly spread throughout the room, rather than just coming from one or two points. Another advantage is that you don’t need unsightly or large radiators to heat the room – instead all of the heating is done below the surface. Below is one of our most recent underfloor heating projects, which used over 9km of pipe. Underfloor Heating Leak Detection Our expertise fitting underfloor heating also makes us incredibly adept at maintaining or fixing the systems, with our underfloor heating leak detection equipment. It’s very rare that underfloor heating should leak, but factors such as the age, how it was fitted and extreme weather conditions can sometimes cause an issue. If this does happen, our team of underfloor heating leak detection specialists can quickly find the leak using techniques such as thermal imaging, to reduce widespread damage. We can then repair the leak and get your underfloor heating back to full working order.

Here at Cheshire Plumbers we’re experts at leak detection and utilise the highest quality equipment to give you a quick and easy solution to your problem.

Underfloor leak detection is extremely effective to find the source to a square meter, which means that the damage can be localised to a much smaller area.

Unexplained water meter readings? Try leak detection!

By on Jun 24, 2015 in News |

If you’re consistently taking unexplained water meter readings, then you could have a leak in your piping which is causing extra water to be used/wasted. An easy way to find this out is to take note of your previous month’s water usage and compare this with your current month if it seems particularly high. These high meter readings could cause unwelcome extra costs, and if left for long period of time could add up to hundreds of pounds. It’s therefore essential that a leak is found and fixed quickly. The Benefits of Leak Detection Here at Cheshire Plumbers we specialise in pipe leak detection and have a wide range of techniques to find your leak wherever it’s located. We often look for leaks in areas which would usually be inaccessible due to being covered in tiles, concrete, wooden or laminate flooring. With traditional methods these would have to be pulled up which could be extremely costly or disruptive, instead we have equipment which can find it quickly. Through methods such as thermal detection we can quickly find the leak to within a square meter, which we can then find a solution for. Our pipe leak detection specialists are all trained to the highest level to ensure that you receive an exceptional standard of workmanship. They’re trained in all areas of plumbing and so can not only source the problem, but solve it.

Is your Combi Boiler Losing Pressure?

By on Jun 19, 2015 in News |

There’s many reasons why your combi boiler may be losing pressure, one of the most common problems is when a new boiler is added to old pipework which may have an unnoticed leak. The modern boilers work under much higher pressure than older models, and so a fault that could have been undetected in the past could cause disruptions with the new installation. If the pressure drops, the boiler will shut down and as a safety feature they will stop working. A combi boiler losing pressure can be a major inconvenience to your home or business, removing your supply of hot water and heating and so it’s essential that it’s fixed as quick as possible. Don’t put up with your combi boiler losing pressure: If this occurs traditional methods to find the leak could be quite disruptive and could entail a lot of man hours to find – an alternative to this is leak detection. Here at Cheshire Plumbers we utilise the very latest leak detection equipment to find the leak quickly and efficiently.
