New Boiler & Boiler Installation
Your Boiler Installation and Us
Our local heating engineers can be relied upon to use their experience and industry knowledge to help you choose the boiler installation that is right for you.
Local & Experienced
We have over 40 years’ experience in the heating industry and are 3rd generation heating engineers. As well reviewed members of the South Tyneside Council recommended “business approval register”, we won the award of excellence for 2019. This was based on our 5 star, verified reviews from our customers in Seaham, South Shields, Sunderland and the surrounding areas.
We cater to homeowners, landlords & commercial installations and are experienced in using both natural gas (such as a combi boiler installation) or LPG (Liquid petroleum gas) fuel.
As Worcester Accredited Installers for almost 20 years (since 2001) we can offer not only what we feel is the best boiler on the market, but we can do so with up to 12 years manufacturers guarantees and 10 months interest-free finance. Although we do recommend and specialise in Worcester Bosch, we do install other boilers including Baxi, Viessman & Alpha.
Upon completion of each new boiler installation we register the boiler with both the manufacturer & The Gas Safe Register. Therefore, you can be assured your boiler installation is complete with both, a valid Manufacturer’s Warranty and it’s Building Control Compliance Certificate.
What fuel type does your boiler installation require?
At Housewarmers, we regularly install boilers of different fuel types. Therefore, we have the experience to ensure that we can install the boiler that is right for you.
Gas boilers are powered by natural gas brought directly to your property via a gas main. Many properties will use gas powered boilers, especially in built-up areas. One of the easiest ways to check is, if you have a gas meter and receive bills from a gas utility provider.
LPG boilers require fuel deliveries. LPG boilers often look like gas boilers, so the easiest way to know if you have one is to check if you have an LPG tank/cylinder on your property. This could be large and filled with fuel delivered directly to you. LPG tends to be used in more rural locations where a gas main is not available.
Oil boilers will have a storage tank somewhere outside of the property. This is filled with oil which is normally delivered to you by truck. Oil boilers are normally larger than gas boilers, standing on the floor rather than being wall mounted. Certain models can also be located outdoors rather than inside a building. Oil boilers are generally used in rural locations where there are limited or no gas networks. Unfortunately, currently, we do not install oil boilers.
An Electric Boiler is a Boiler which operates using electricity rather than a combustible fossil fuel such as gas or oil boilers.
Electric Boilers can sometimes be confused with electric water boilers. Electric water boilers are small appliances which are used to boil water for a tea or coffee. An Electric Boiler is a device used to heat your home.
Discover the benefits of each type of boiler installation
The combination or ‘combi’ boiler is usually the most economical type of boiler installation and the one that we carry out most regularly. A combi is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single unit. It heats the water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap. They come in a variety of outputs and can cater for homes of varying sizes.
They do not need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold-water storage tank in the roof space thus they are perfect for homes with little or no roof space, or where a loft conversion is being considered.
They are energy efficient as they do not heat and store water that is not being used.
Generally, they are the least expensive boiler installations and require the least amount of time to be installed. Some combination boiler installations can be carried out in as little as half a day.
They use mains water pressure; this can mean that you may experience a loss of pressure if more than one outlet is used at once. For example, you may experience less water pressure in the shower is someone were to wash their hands. If this is likely to happen and you have the space, you may wish to consider a system boiler.
We offer these boilers with up to 12 years manufacturer’s warranty
System boilers use a cylinder for storing hot water, however, the major heating and hot water system components are contained in the boiler itself.
They are perfect for a home with multiple bathrooms where there may be a high demand for hot water, i.e. if more than one shower/bath were running at the same time.
There is no need for a tank in the loft making it ideal if you have no loft space or if you are considering a loft conversion.
They are compatible with solar thermal panels if you are looking for an even more eco-friendly installation.
As they do require a hot water cylinder, you must have room for this. If space throughout your property is at a premium a combination boiler may be for you.
Less efficient as water is heated and stored, not produced only on demand.

Regular boilers are the ‘simplest’ type of boiler, they require a hot water tank and may also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder. Without a cold water tank the heating system is operating as an unvented hot water system (sealed system). This means they are working on mains pressure taking advantage of a bubble of air within the cylinder (or a separate expansion vessel) to allow for the expansion of the hot water.
With a cold water tank the heating system is a vented hot water system. The hot water uses the vent pipe for expansion, this pipe connects the hot water and cold water tanks.
Regular boilers are generally considered the best option where you are replacing only the boiler in an older heating system. This is because the existing radiators may not cope with the increase in pressure that would result from a new combi or system boiler. Regular boilers are best suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system. Replace a faulty or inefficient boiler without replacing the full system (pipework and radiators). Regular boilers supply multiple sources (taps, showers, etc) without a loss of pressure. Can be used along with solar thermal hot water heating systems to reduce carbon emissions and reduce energy costs. Regular boilers may be a good option in an area where water pressure is low. As they are the ‘simplest’ type of boiler they are often usually reliable, with less parts that can ‘go wrong’. They require more room than either a system or combi boiler, there must be room for a tank in the loft as well as a cylinder and another tank elsewhere on the property. Once the hot water in your hot water tank has been used, you will need to wait until it heats up again Less efficient as water is heated and stored, not produced only on demand.
