New heating and hot water system
Posted 30 September 2010
Job Description:
We have recently moved into a new house. It is a large property, an old farmhouse, some 650m2 of living space. At present, the heating is being supplied by two separate oil fired boilers, heating half the house each, one is a oil fired cooker/boiler in the kitchen and one is a 9 year old oil fired boiler in the boiler room. The hot water can be provided also by the boilers, or by two immersion heaters that have been fitted, again one for each side of the house. Floor plans are attached to give an idea of scope. We have a number of things we need help with from an experienced plumber: 1) We want to consolidate the two boilers to one new one, still oil fired, in the boiler room, that can provide heating and hot water for the entire house. So a new boiler will need to be installed, and the two existing systems joined up and one of the two oil tanks will need to be removed and the other one linked up to the new boiler. 2) The current system layout is a mess, the result of years of evolution and adhoc extension and repair. We want a new pipe/water tanks/radiator system designing for the entire property, ideally that we can then implement room by room as we renovate the property as we don’t want to tear the whole house to pieces in one go. We will want to be able to provide the design to our building contractors, so they can then implement it as part of the ongoing renovation work. I do not know how to estimate the work involved, so I’ve put a default budget in of £1, 000. In reality, what we are looking for is a ‘labour’ quote/estimate, the cost to do the work of boiler installation with it being set up ready to implement the new design, link up the two systems, link up the oil tank, and then design the new system. Materials can be budgeted separately once a decision is taken on what boiler is appropriate. We are looking for a plumber that is experienced, can work with our building contractors as a team to prepare a design and plan that they can implement over time, that can help in sourcing the right boiler at the right price, and naturally that is competitive in terms of labour costs. If you need further information to be able to provide a quote, just send me the questions, happy to help where I can.
