Environment and climate change are the issues of today. We all have a duty to look at how we can reduce our carbon footprint and its effect on the environment. At Central London Plumbers we are committed to applying our understanding of energy efficient heating appliances and where possible advise on the use of renewable energy solutions.

Most homes in London use gas boilers for their space heating and water heating requirements. The need to generate the highest efficiencies has never been more important. The Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK (SEDBUK) is a rating system where a minimum of 90% efficiency is an “A Rating” and is now a requirement under Part L of the building regulations.

The payback period for energy use vs.capital cost can be as little as 7 years.

We also have a duty to suggest measures to minimise heat lost through air infiltration from outside and better insulation properties of building materials.
