Central heating is a system that provides warmth in the whole interior of a building or a proportion of a building to every room in the home from a heating source or a central point. Warm water distributes heat evenly to every area through a piece of network pipes. 

It can also be used combined with other systems in order to control the temperature of the building.

there are several various central heating systems available on the market. Most of them include a central heating boiler, and it is an energy-efficient heat producer which helps keep energy bills down. It peaks at 80-90 degrees, so the water is not boiled.

It doesn’t require any forced air movement, no hot and cold spots, no draughts, or noisy fans to contend with. The heat comes out in an unobtrusive and passive way. It warms both fabrics and objects within the room.

All engineers at Total Gas Services are fully qualified and GasSafe registered who carry an identity card with them at all times with thier GasSafe registration number. Any work on a gas appliance, such as a boiler, is very dangerous if done by an unqualified engineer. The general work that needs doing to a boiler or other gas appliance, whether that is servicing it, installing it, or repairing it, will be dangerous if not done by a gas safe engineer. Not only that, it's illegal too!

Total Gas Services have installed a variety of appliances for happy and satisfied customers all over Hampshire for many years. You're in SAFE hands with Total Gas Services.

As well as annual boiler servicing, we service and repair a variety of appliances including gas safety checks, flues, heating systems for homes and businesses. Total Gas Services have serviced a variety of appliances for satisfied customers all over Hampshire and surrounding areas for many years.

Health & Safety – There is nothing more important than the wellbeing of your family, friends and loved ones. If something is not working correctly with your gas appliances there are numerous dangers that could occur from gas leaks, fires or water escaping. Keeping a regular check on your systems helps to prevent these.

Regular servicing will save you money – Making sure your boiler and other systems are running efficiently means less wastage of energy and savings. Efficient systems mean energy is put to better use – heating your home and water. Running more efficiently means better quality and it is good for the environment too.

Power Flushing is a process carried out by central heating engineers designed to remove sludgy build-up in the boiler, pipes and radiators that make up a central heating system. A power flushing unit sends water through a central-heating system at high velocity to dislodge any build-up of sludge, rust and other debris.

This helps to improve the efficiency and lifespan of the boiler and central heating system and prevent breakdowns. As with so many plumbing issues, regular maintenance (including power flushing) is the best way to keep a system in shape.

A powerful machine called a 'pumping station' is used to remove dirty water and sludgy build-up while introducing clean water. The engineer may add a chemical to the system to break down sludge before the equipment is connected and the flushing process begins.

Air source pumps serve as an alternative way to heat a home, and could be the ideal solution to generate a propertys own heat and potentially save money on energy bills. 

There are other options available if you want to generate your own heat, such as wood burning stoves and solar panels. Heat pumps can save on heating bills. But remember, a well-insulated home is essential – otherwise the heat the pump is generating escapes more easily.

How does it work? An air source heat pump is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces.

The principles of a home’s plumbing are fairly simple. Fresh water comes in under pressure to fixtures such as sinks, bathtubs, showers and toilet tanks. Water is heated by passing through a water heater before traveling to the fixtures. Waste water is expelled from the home through drain pipes and from there into the sewer system.

Plumbing system comprises of two sub-systems. One brings the fresh water in, and the other one (also known as drainage system) takes the waste water out.

When the water enters a home it is under enough pressure, which allows it to travel upstairs and around corners, everywhere it might be needed. In the households, which have a water meter the water passes through the meter and the amount of passing water is recorded. It is also common that the main water stop valve (or stopcock) is located close to the meter, or under the kitchen sink.

In most modern homes there are stop valves especially for the sink, toilet or bathtub so there's no need to turn off the main water supply in case of a problem with one of the pipes.

Once the pressurised water enters the home it is immediately ready for usage, if you cold water is required. If hot water is required, then there is an extra step. A dedicated pipe carries water from the cold water system to the water heater, where the water is heated up and send out to all fixtures and appliances that might need it.

An underfloor heating system heats a room's floor structure, which in turn warms the room itself. This is achieved in a "wet" underfloor heating system by passing heated water through plastic or composite pipes which are installed in the floor. Various installation options are availble to suit different floor constructions. The underfloor heating pipes are routed back to a central manifold, typically one per floor, which is used to distribute heat to the relevant loops as and when required.

Underfloor heating produces a more gentle, even heat than a radiator or blown-air system, with the main component of heat output being infrared heat radiation, rather than convection. This affords comfort at lower room temperatures as the reduced convection results in fewer draughts.

The larger heating area provided by using an entire floor, rather than a relatively small radiator panel, also allows underfloor heating to operate effectively at much lower running temperatures than a traditional radiator heating system.

All of these efficiency improvements mean that a correctly designed underfloor heating system can provide annual fuel savings of up to 25% over a traditional radiator system.

Typically, an underfloor heating system is divided into control "zones" consisting of individual rooms (i.e. bedroom) or groups of rooms with similar heat loss and use characteristics (i.e. kitchen and utility), with each zone being controlled by its own room thermostat.
