The importance of Heating Control

A study was carried out last year on the effects of installing heating control on existing domestic home heating systems. Below there is a quote from the results and a link to the study.

"Tests in a typical UK house, built within an environmental chamber, show that energy consumption by the heating systems can be reduced by up to 40% through the installation of a room thermostat and TRVs, with installation costs recovered in around a year. "

Warranties on Vaillant Boilers

We are aware that there is a little bit of confusion over the 5 year warranty which we offer for the Vaillant boiler range. We are creating a leaflet to explain it in depth but we will explain the matter here.

Direct Line Maintenance offers 5 year warranties on all the Vaillant boile (7 years on the Plus models from the 1st January 2013). Most of the boilers have a manufactures warranty for 5 years. On the Vaillant Eco-Tech Pro range there is a 2 year warranty but we will extend it to 5 years ourselves so its a 5 year warranty.

To qualify for the 5 year warranty you need to have the boiler serviced yearly by Direct Line Maintenance Services Limited. We can no longer guarantee a fixed price service for boilers fitted after April 2013 but we have no plans to increase prices and we are doing as much as possible to keep our prices from increasing. We have never been the cheapest installers in our area but we believe because of the quality and care we take on our installations we will save our customers money over the life cycle of their heating systems.

Switching your gas & electric suppliers

While our company is fitting new heating systems and new boilers, at some point we may try to talk about who supplies the gas & electric e.g. British Gas, Atlantic, Eon etc. If you have never changed your gas & electric supplier this sounds like a strange proposition. Often we hear the reply "We have had the same gas & electric supplier for 10 years and we are very happy". It's hard to get a customer to change from a service with which they are happy with.

Switching is easy and does not interrupt the supply of utilities to the your home. It does require filling in forms either by phone, online or through the post.

We are very enthusiastic about switching utilities and saving money, especially when we fit new boilers, as reductions in gas reflect well on our installation. Too often we see savings made in the use of gas erased by increases in gas prices. We make no money if you switch to a cheaper supplier, we do not receive commission, we just like people spending less on heating. U-Switch makes a small amount every time they make a switch, which is a bargain. What have you got to lose? It's also nice to help someone you know to change there supplier.

You always save the most the first time you switch, so what are you waiting for?

If you want to save some money then let U-switch help you. You call them and do it over the phone on 0800 404 7902 or visit their website.

Binswood Hall - Solar Hot Water System Completed


Direct Line Maintenance Services Ltd has seen the completion of its innovative collaboration with Butterworth’s builders in the installation of Solar Hot Water Technology at its Binswood Hall site in Didsbury. The solar panels, manufactured by Baxi, will help to provide the hot water needs of flat owners and reduce their gas usage. On average the solar panels will generate around 50-60% of the annual domestic hot water requirement**.

The combination of the solar panels with the Alpha CD28C complete with Alphas pioneering Gas Saver unit gives the building project a very green environmental status. The Gas saver boasts independent testing results showing domestic hot water savings of up to 37% and can reduce gas consumption by up to 52%*.

The Gas Saver is a device fitted between the boiler and flue. It recycles heat usually expelled in the flue gases which saves energy, helps the environment and also reduces instances of pluming.

The installation of solar hot water technology will provide financial benefits and environmental piece of mind for the tenants of the Binswood Hall in Didsbury for a great many years to come.

For a look at the installation and the Binswood Development please follow the link below.
