The A.C.E. Group is a registered member of Gas Safe and all our plumbing and gas operatives are also members. This qualifies them to carry out all types of gas work, including boiler installations, for which we provide Gas Safe certification to confirm compliance with current regulations. Our highly qualified gas engineers also carry out fault finding and boiler repairs. Armed with years of experience working with both conventional and Combi boilers, our engineers are skilled at diagnosing faults and carrying out any necessary repairs.
Our fully qualified gas engineers are adept in carrying out small and large boiler repairs. With many years of experience, our engineers investigate and diagnose the problem. The safest and most cost- effective solutions are recommended to the client and, where more than one option is a possibility, this is discussed with the client, making clear all the advantages and disadvantages. We always use good quality materials which are sourced from our reliable and competitively priced suppliers.
New Boiler Installation:
New boiler installations are carried out by our fully qualified and certified engineers. Prior to installation, we diagnose and liaise with the client to ensure that the most economical and best suited type of boiler is installed. We will also provide you with information and advice, such as, the advantages and disadvantages of different boilers, benefits of fitting appropriate filters and advantages of power flushing the system, if applicable.
The A.C.E. Group provides you with a detailed estimate, which includes separate costs for materials and labour. This gives you a ‘no-surprises’ clear and accurate description of the works, together with associated costs.
Sometimes a boiler has reached an age or condition where it is more economical to replace it than repair it. If this is the case, we will explain our findings to the client, together with the options available. For example, different types of boilers available will be discussed, such as conventional boilers versus Combi boilers.
Furthermore, whether it be a new boiler installation or replacement, there are always various considerations to be taken into account, for example –
How big is the property?
How much space is available?
How many people live there?
What is the budget?
These are the type of questions we can help you with.
Combination boiler installation:
A combination boiler (or Combi) provides heating and hot water requirements effectively and efficiently to certain homes. The heating works similarly to a conventional boiler, where it can be set to come on at a particular time and particular temperature. However, with a Combi, the hot water does not need to be set as it will come on automatically once a hot tap it turned on. This way you get hot water on demand. A Combi boiler will also save you space since it runs directly from the water mains, you will not need a hot water cylinder or a cold water service tank. Furthermore, you will not need a pump as the water will be operating at mains pressure.
The A.C.E. Group follows strict safety regulations and procedures when carrying out any type of gas work. Any work that involves gas must be carried out by a certified engineer and/ or a company registered with Gas Safe. The A.C.E Group and all our gas engineers are fully qualified and certified with Gas Safe and have many years of experience. Works involving gas can include locating, investigating, and remedying a gas leak, running gas supplies from a meter, fitting a landlord meter, connecting to a central heating system, fitting a gas hob or oven, to name but a few.
General Heating and plumbing:
General heating and plumbing covers a wide range of services which include maintenance or repair works on a boiler, pipe work, bathroom services, radiators, valves, taps, etc. Our fully qualified engineers are experienced in carrying out this type of work promptly and efficiently, ensuring our hourly or daily rates are kept to a minimum.
Central Heating installation:
The installation of a new central heating system involves a boiler installation and can include the installation of a hot water cylinder, depending on the type of boiler suitable for the property. It can also entail the installation of feed and return pipework to service the radiators and hot and water services. The A.C.E. Group are able to advise you on the best options for your property, for example, type of boiler, types and numbers of radiators to effectively and economically heat the premises. A detailed estimate will be submitted and we will liaise with the customer to deal with any concerns or queries promptly and efficiently. All work will be carried out to comply with and in accordance to Gas Safe regulations, and the appropriate certificates will be issued on completion of the works.
Water tank replacement or removal:
Replacing or removing a cold water service tank is sometimes necessary if the old tank is corroded, contaminated, leaking or becomes redundant due to changing the system from a conventional boiler to a Combi boiler. Tanks are usually located within the loft space of a property and the benefits of having a tank removed is that it provides more space in the loft. The A.C.E. group ensures that when removing/ replacing the tank we protect the areas we are working on, in order to keep the premises as clean and tidy as possible.
Hot water cylinder installation/ repair/ removal:
Hot water cylinders are fitted as part of a boiler/ central heating installation and they provide the hot water necessary for the water and/ or heating system. The A.C.E. Group can advise you the different options and types of cylinder available, ensuring you get the best solution suited to your property.
Our services also include diagnosing a fault within an existing cylinder installation and reporting to the client what is needed to remedy the problem. Repairing any faults is carried out professionally and efficiently by our qualified and experienced engineers. Removing a hot water cylinder becomes necessary when replacing it with a new cylinder or when the existing cylinder has become redundant due to changing the system to a Combi boiler. In the latter case, the benefits of this would be the creation of more cupboard space as a hot water
cylinder is usually quite a bulky item.
As usual with The A.C.E. Group, we carry out all hot water cylinder installation, repair and removal professionally and with the minimum of mess, ensuring all areas worked on are clean and tidy on completion.
A central heating system usually consists of a heat source (for example, the boiler), a hot water storage area (for example, the hot water cylinder), pipe work that links these two items to each other and subsequently to the radiators that supply heat throughout the premises. Over the years on an older system, debris can accumulate which can affect the pipe work and radiators causing blockages and inefficiency of water running through them in order to heat the system. As the boiler is having to work harder in pushing the water through the congested system it means more gas is being used, hence, a larger gas bill for the customer. Periodically, power flushing a central heating system in order to clear and produce a cleaner more efficient central heating system can be economical as it allows the system to run more efficiently, thus reducing your gas bill.
