These are two old commercial gas boilers, fitted at a church in Guildford, were unreliable and inefficient. So we replaced them with new boilers and controls just before Christmas, ensuring they had heat when they needed it most.
Three new Worcester GB162 85kW boilers were installed on the opposite wall. This was to allow the existing boilers to operate for as long as possible before shutting down the heating. The heating pipework was also insulated to minimize heat loss.
The new boilers were joined to the existing old heating system via a plate heat exchanger, to create two water circuits. This allows modern condensing boilers to operate efficiently when connected to old heating systems, as this achieves hydraulic water separation and avoids the need for sealing the old system.
The boilers are controlled with sequence and weather compensation controllers. These controls ensure the boilers only operate together when there is a high demand for heat and ensure all the boilers run an equal amount of time over the year.
WiFi enabled smart room thermostats were fitted around the church to enable different heating zones/areas to be heated at different times and temperatures. These are connected to the internet to enable remote control of the zones from an app, this is useful as the usage for two church halls and other areas can change at short notice. The app also allows easier operation of the thermostats, especially when there are multiple heating zones.

Premier Heating & Friends take on ‘Its A Knockout’ for Cherry Trees
Cherry Trees is a small charity providing home-from-home specialist short breaks for children and young adults aged 0-19 with a range of complex disabilities including learning, physical and sensory impairments.
Cherry Trees is a unique place, providing professional care in a safe, stimulating and fun environment, where every child is valued for who they are. It is a community that is dedicated to children and young people, enabling them to spend time with friends and enjoy new experiences and opportunities, while their families have a much needed break.
In order for Cherry Trees to continue offering this fantastic service it needs regular charitable funds.
As a local business we like to help with this fund raising, so Premier Heating and Friends are entering a team to compete in Cherry Trees very own “It’s a Knock-out”, taking place on Saturday 8th June at Shalford Park, Guildford. Based on the popular 1970s television show, teams will compete against each other on a giant wet-and-wild inflatable assault course to help raise much needed funds.
We and Cherry Trees would really appreciate any donations you can spare by DONATING HERE thank you so much.
When was the last time you had your gas or oil commercial space heater serviced?
We have recently attended to several warehouses, for new customers, to service their gas or oil commercial warm air heaters and found most of them with cracked heat exchangers.
This means they have been blowing harmful Carbon Monoxide fumes into the areas they are heating, emphasizing the importance of regular maintenance!
We carry out maintenance and installation of commercial and domestic gas, LPG and oil heating. Why not give us a call on 01483 234701 or visit our website premierheating.net to see how we can help you.
One of our apprentices, Sean Mitchell, has just been accepted on the Worcester Accredited Installer (WAI) Apprenticeship Programme.
Sean who is just starting his Level 3 NVQ, was one of 24 apprentices who have been individually picked from around the UK to carry out 11 days of additional training over the coming year working directly with Worcester Bosch. The training will include:
- Information required before, during and after installing a new boiler;
- The different types of boilers including gas and oil;
- Learning about different controls, how they benefit the customer and how they’re wired into the system;
- How to effectively clean an existing heating system;
- How to use a flue analyser and multi meter;
Sean will also have the opportunity to work along side a Worcester Technician working on boilers under warranty, where most of the calls are due to installer error. At the end of the training there will be a presentation for “Apprentice of the Year” which will be awarded to the apprentice who the trainers feel have put the most effort into this programme.
I feel this is a great opportunity for Sean and the other apprentices to improve their knowledge within the industry and help create better engineers for the future. Well done for Worcester Bosch for creating the programme and helping to raise the industry standards.

Do you have or want a combination boiler or mains-fed plumbing system (like a Megaflo) but don’t have good water flow or pressure?
Then we can help!!!
More houses are using the water main to directly feed all the taps and showers, rather than having gravity fed supplies from a cold water tank in the loft.
This can have advantages such as a great flow rates and high pressures from the taps and showers without the need for pumps, although this relies upon the water main being able to deal with the demand.
Where poor flow rates are evident from water mains, an accumulator can be fitted to boost the water flow to the taps and showers. This can also help larger properties where multiple taps or showers are used at the same time, causing a high demand on the water main.
An accumulator is a large vessel that stores water under pressure, which is released into the plumbing system when the water main can’t cope with the demand. This keeps the water flow rate at a constant rate.
Where low water pressures are also evident, a booster pump will also be required to pump the water into the accumulator.
The picture shows an accumulator fitted on the left, along with two unvented Worcester cylinders, to keep constant water flow rates at a large house with four bathrooms.

Landlords will be required by law to install working carbon monoxide and smoke alarms in their properties.
The measure took effect from October 2015, and comes with strong support after a consultation on property condition in the private rented sector.
The move will help prevent up to 26 deaths and 670 injuries a year.
The proposed changes to the law would require landlords to install carbon monoxide alarms in high risk rooms – such as those where boilers or gas fires are installed.
Landlords would also need to install smoke alarms on every floor of their property, and test them at the start of every tenancy.
Ensuring the safety of tenants
Those who fail to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty.
This would bring private rented properties into line with existing building regulations that already require newly-built homes to have hard-wired smoke alarms installed.
