From installation to maintenance and repair, it’s all done with economy and efficiency in mind.
Heating your home without spending a fortune on your energy bill is a challenge we all face these days, and boilers account for around 55% of that bill.
Replacing an old gas boiler with an A-rated high-efficiency condensing boiler and upgrading your heating controls, including thermostatic radiator valves, could save you as much as £310 a year. If a new boiler isn’t the plan for now, then you should make sure yours is serviced regularly as an inefficient boiler wastes money.
Check your radiators too. If they are becoming slow to heat up, have cold spots or are making a knocking sound, there could be a blockage and their efficiency could be reduced by as much as 15%. The blockage is usually caused by sludge and scale which can sometimes build up in the radiators of older heating systems, preventing the water from successfully circulating. This can be removed by a flushing process (usually known as a Powerflush); chemical inhibitors are added to prevent sludge and scale reforming and slowing down the rate of corrosion. With your radiators working more efficiently, you’ll save even more money on your energy bills.
Hot Water Systems
Your boiler’s working hard 24/7, but it’s important that all that hard work isn’t lost by having a poorly insulated hot water cylinder. Properly insulated cylinders prevent heat escaping, keeping your hot water at the right temperature for longer, so it’s there when you need it. Upgrading your hot water cylinder can save you around £45 a year.
Unvented hot water cylinders are now the most popular option for new hot water systems. As they are fed directly from the mains water supply, the hot water flow rate is excellent and is delivered at mains pressure to every tap and showerhead in the home.
Vented cylinders are connected by a pipe to the cold water tank, usually in the loft, and often need a pump to boost the flow rate around the property. The pump uses electricity, and may prove an expensive alternative to an unvented cylinder.
Renewable Energy Solutions
Phil France provides a comprehensive range of heating and hot water related services - which includes solar water heating systems.
From installation to maintenance and repair, it’s all done with economy and efficiency in mind
Solar Thermal Panel Systems
Solar water heating systems
Solar water heating systems, or solar thermal panels, use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable. A well designed system can provide your household with 60% of your hot water needs.

Phil France works with landlords to maintain properties by undertaking essential servicing and repairs to plumbing, gas heating, hot water and renewable energy systems.
