This project was a complete Heating source and Hot Water refurb, a re-pipe of the airing cupboard from start to finish, and another incredibly satisfying job to do as the customer also took advantage of the fantastic combination of products and controls available from Vaillant.
The existing open-vented boiler was old and tired, The gravity hot and cold water system just didn’t work well, pumps had been added to solve flow issues but the noise was a nuisance.
Yeoman (SW) Ltd completely re-designed the system, using the best options for this scenario. A Vaillant Exclusive Green IQ has been installed with a Vaillant Unistore unvented cylinder, complete with a Stuart Tuner mains water boost accumulator. The results are absolutely phenomenal. The home owner can now run every water outlet in the two bathrooms and kitchen with no fluctuation whatsoever in the flow of water.
In addition to the massive upgrade to the hot and cold water, the Heating system is above and beyond what it was before, the 240v time clock and thermostats have been removed and a Vaillant vSMART has been installed. The home owner now has full control of their heating and the temperature of the stored hot water cylinder via their mobile devices. Unlike regular 240v controls or other ‘Smart’ controls, the vSMART modulates the output of the boiler as required. These intelligent controls use weather and load compensation to ensure the boiler runs as efficiently as possible, using the minimum energy required to heat the home and reducing fuel bills.
In addition to the Vaillant controls, a Vaillant Protection pack has been installed, increasing the 7 year warranty to a 10 Year Warranty.
As with all our installations, the heating system has received a full flush removing suspended iron oxide and dirt from the radiators and associated pipework.
