Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator

Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator in Liverpool

Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator with a HIGH EFFICIENCY PUMP as of JANUARY 2013 to save money today in Liverpool

In January 2013 there was a pumping revolution across the UK as contractors and installers working with new build developers, on renovation projects and self build new home projects started to observe new regulations when it comes to fitting small circulating pumps on heating systems with an external small pump and it s all because of the ERP Directive from Europe. 

Old CH PumpThe European Union has recognised that for us to achieve its requirements for carbon emission reductions, and energy use reductions across the twenty seven member states, it has to act now.

By 2020 the total electricity consumption of all glandless circulating pumps operated in the European Union for heating and air conditioning has to be halved. This also includes the normal small circulating pumps that we still have in many homes that pump water around our central heating systems . This is the objective of an EU ordinance under the European ErP (Eco-Design) Directive which now regulates the energy efficiency of this type of pump as of the 1 January 2013.  Further  requirements are being planned for the 1st August 2015 when these regulations will apply to the small pumps incorporated in combi and system boilers installed on new systems or in renovation projects where a new boiler is attached to an existing heating system.

An overall reduction of 11 million tonnes per year is estimated as these changes are thought to be likely to provide a reduction in EU-wide carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

In order to achieve this goal set by the European Commission, the EU ordinance prohibits the sale of technically outmoded, inefficient pump models from 2013 onwards. That included the basic static speed pumps that are outside of the boiler in domestic properties as of 1st Jan this year and pumps in Conbis and system boilers as of August 2015. So now you have to Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator. 

The important thing to recognise while determining which pump models can continue to be used from now on is the energy efficiency index (EEI).

Why do we now have to Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator in Liverpool

As of January 2013, the limit EEI value of glandless circulating pumps installed outside the Boiler – external pumps – not those incorporated in combi or system boilers at this stage – will be defined as 0.27.  Pumps will be better than the minimum requirements of the current A rated pumps as the energy efficiency classes specified at present will then become superfluous.

I the near future (August 2015) the EEI limit value will be reduced to 0.23. This will also apply to glandless circulation pumps, designed to operate in newly installed heat generators or solar thermal systems (integrated pumps). In the last implementation stage, from 2020 the regulations  will also apply to the replacement of integrated pumps in existing heat generators and domestic boilers.

How much could you save if you Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator in Liverpool

Many energy efficient single pumps offer potential electricity savings of up to 90% compared to standard pumps without speed control. They already comply with the first stage requirements for 2013 and with the limit values of the second stage of the glandless circulating pump ordinance due for 2015.

The new regulation on circulators will shift the market towards the intelligent high efficiency circulators that are capable of adjusting their performance to meet the specific needs of the heating system.

By 2020 across the 27 European member states, the EU Commission estimates that inefficient circulators are responsible for about a 20% share of household energy bills and removing them and replacing them with intelligent circulators could save as much as €2.2 billion – equivalent to the total annual electricity consumption of Ireland!

The Circulation Pump the the heart of your heating system and without it your system will fail and leave you out in the cold.

To make savings of up to 18% of your electricity Install New CH Pump uk with an ‘A’ Rated Domestic Heating Circulator in Liverpool. This along with other energy efficiency controls (that are set correct) could save you even more.

Faulty boiler in liverpool

Get Your Boiler Ready for Winter:- 5 things you must do…

Faulty boiler in Liverpool

Get Your Boiler Ready for Winter now before it is too late and you end up with a heavy repair bill…

Yes it’s that time of year again when the Central Heating begins going on in houses across the nation including here in Liverpool, as the temperature falls and winter time is well and truly on the way.

Of course this is just the season when we need our central heating boilers the most – and it’s the actual season we’re likely to run into issues as well. The unexpected requirement we put them under can expose issues, and the dropping temperature can cause issues of their own as well.

Here are some guidelines to ensure you decrease the possibility of a faulty boiler this winter time.

1. Get your boiler serviced now

This is the best time for a boiler service. It will make sure everything is functioning effectively and if any maintenance that is needed, they can be done before the really cold weather sneaks in.

2. Turn your heating on at least once each week

Don’t delay for the really cold weather to hit before you put your Central Heating on. Even if you only run it on for a few hours one day per 7 days, it gives you a chance to see if there are any issues with it before you really need it.

Get Your Boiler Ready for Winter3. Insulate your pipes

Frozen pipes and joints can be a big problem for homeowners, avoiding the CH system and the boiler from functioning effectively. You should protect them all if you have not already done so – Including -if you have a condensing boiler- the condensate pipe if it runs through to the outside of your home.

4. Keep the heating on consistently but on a low setting

Lots of people only turn their Central Heating on in Liverpool when they really need it. However, when they do, they put it on high and it can take ages to warm the whole home. Then they turn it off again. Instead of doing this, have the boiler and Central Heating system on very low and keep it on for longer. It allows the home to accomplish a awesome temperature continually and it can mean less boiler issues because it will not have so much demand of it.

5. Your heating Boiler is ready for winter

Make sure you have our contact details in case your boiler breaks down when you least expect it. Print out our “Contact” page and put it close to your boiler.

As you can see, none of these guidelines are particularly unpleasant. Actually they should offer a fundamental element of getting your home prepared for the winter that is ready to pounce upon us… You will come to depend on your boiler a lot in the months to come, so ensure you put it on every now and again to make sure it all works and to get the best out of it when you need it most.

Sludge in your CH System

Sludge in your CH System

Our guide to Sludge in your CH System

Are your partially heated radiators getting on your nerves? Is your boiler noisy and your home taking longer to heat than normal? These are all signs that we don’t want to see in our central heating systems over the winter months, and can often set the alarm bells ringing with fears of a broken boiler 🙁
It may sound scary, but don’t be alarmed! These are all symptoms that could suggest your central heating system is suffering from Sludge in your CH System. Over time, many central heating systems develop sludge, and AJF Services 999 will be able to diagnose and treat your system to eradicate the problem and treat is so it should not get that bad again.
Known technically as Black Oxide Sludge or magnetite, system sludge is the result of debris and corrosion of some of the components within your heating system. In other words your radiators are rusting and causeing a rusty sludge that slowly clogs up your system and starts making it worse and worse. that is what Sludge in your CH System is.

What causes Sludge in your CH System?

Sludge is caused by the rusting of radiators and other parts of the heating system.
As water flows past the debris, it creates a circular pattern moving the rusty sludge around your radiators. This causes cold spots in the centre of the radiator to appear where the sludge is moved to, leaving only the top, bottom and side of the radiator to warm your rooms.

Sludge in your CH System can also find its way into your boiler, restricting flow rates, and in rare, extreme cases causing failure to key components. It is something many central heating systems will develop in time and thesymptoms should not be ignored.

What are the symptoms of Sludge in your CH System?

Sludge in your CH System presents itself in a number of ways. The tell-tale signs to look out for include:

    • A reduction in the overall heat in your home
    • Your  taking longer to heat up
    • Cold spots in parts of your radiators
    • Radiators only working in some of your rooms
    • Excessive noise from your boiler including drumming, knocking and thudding
    • Over of the boiler
    • Blocked valves
    • Blocked heat exchangers
    • Build up of hydrogen gas in radiators and pipes
    • Having to bleed radiators excessively
    • Pumps and valves sticking and needing replacement to often

Untreated sludge can lead to an increase in your heating bills, less heat, key components in your heating system being damaged and blockages. If you think you have Sludge in your CH System it is important to contact us now for more advice.

AJF Services 999 - contact us for Plumbing  Drainage Building Maintenance

Treating system sludge

The treatment of heating system sludge requires thorough boiler cleaning which we carry out using mains water and a specialised cleanser, the system is power flushed using a big industrial pump. Professional treatment can take just a couple of hours for a basic system flush, through to a full day if each radiator requires individual treatment. The treatment type is dependent on the amount of sludge in your system and the problems it has caused.

When a new boiler is installed it is also important that the system is flushed to prolong the life of your boiler, in addition to treating the system with a chemical inhibitor to prevent future corrosion. The less sludge in your system, the more efficient your heating will be through the cold winter months.

So if your central heating system isn’t operating quite like normal this winter, don’t panic or ignore it, your system could just be in need of a good clean and a bit of TLC from me.

The solution is to Powerflush a Central Heating System and treat with corrosion inhibitor.

flush equipment, normally set up outside, connects to your and cleans the whole  without having to take off all the radiators. WE normally just remove one radiator and do it all from there.

flush cleaner is added to the  water and starts to loosen the rust. The is turned on and radiator surfaces checked for cold spots. By  water through each radiator and vibrating cold spots the sludge inside is rapidly loosened. The sludge flows from radiators and is pumped out of the and replaces with clean fresh water.

All pipe-work, radiators and the boiler are  flushed until water samples are clean and free from sludge and other deposits or debris

An effective corrosion inhibitor is added to the fresh clean water in the CH , radiators are balanced as required and checked that are all up correctly.
