Over 90% of UK households use wet heating systems, making them the most popular choice. Wet systems use a fuel-burning boiler to heat water which travels through your house in St Albans via pipes, before returning to the boiler to be reheated.
At Boilerman Herts Ltd, our central heating services include full installation, maintenance and repair of all system types. We can advise on the best option for your needs before supplying and fitting components. Because we are experienced plumbers, we ensure effective hot water connections throughout your home.
Wet heating systems can use different types of fuel to power the boiler:
Gas is the most common type of central heating in St Albans and the UK. This is a cost-effective, convenient and efficient option that suits the needs of many households.
Gas systems require a connection to the gas grid, and it is essential for Gas Safe engineers to carry out all gas boiler services. This include installations, maintenance and boiler repairs.
If your property in St Albans does not have a gas grid connection, oil may be a suitable alternative. An oil-fuelled system requires you to store oil on site in a tanker that you can rent or buy from your supplier.
For customers with an oil system, an annual central heating service should include an assessment of the storage tank.
Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Similar to oil and another alternative to gas, LPG systems require you to store fuel at your property.
Some boilers burn solid fuel, such as coal or wood chips. However, this is a dated system which is rare in modern homes.
Whatever type of system you have in your home, it’s vital to take proper care of it. An annual boiler service is the best way to maintain safety and function because we catch any minor issues early, carrying out boiler repairs before problems become serious and expensive.

Storage heaters are another form of central heating that is common in St Albans homes. Wired into the electric system, storage heaters use cheaper off-peak electricity to warm up overnight. They then release this heat during the day.
Because storage heaters do not require pipework, they are cheaper and easier to install then wet systems. However, they are more expensive to run. With over 35 years of experience, our plumbers and gas engineers provide unbeatable advice for your home and needs.
