The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in any house, and our highly trained plumbers have carried out many re-modelling projects over the years. We can offer a complete package from start to finish and coordinate other trades we work with to ensure that a new installation will run as smooth as possible, causing you the slightest disturbance.
Maybe you have a property that has never had gas or oil central heating and feel now is the time to look for a full installation. Or possibly your existing install has many issues or is a one pipe system. Or maybe you are having an extension done and are concerned that your current pipework and boiler will not be substantial enough to meet your needs.
Any of these concerns that you have can be addressed by Bishops Stortford Plumbing and Heating. We will initially carry out a site survey to then ascertain what the best solution is for you and your property.
There are so many options when it comes to choosing a new boiler and it is easy to be mis-informed with regards to what is most suitable for your property. Just because someone advertises a boiler at a discount price that seems too good to be true does not mean it is suitable for every property.
Boilers like car engines come in all different sizes. You would not install an engine from a Mini in a Ford Transit and vice versa. This applies to boilers as well and Bishop’s Stortford Plumbing and Heating can advise you what one to choose to make sure you are getting value for money from the installation and also from the efficiency of it moving forward for years to come.

We can also offer yearly servicing for your pool boiler and at the same time carry out an annual gas check on your household gas or oil appliances, an ideal situation to make sure that all your heating needs are being taken care of in one go.
There are so many advantages to an unvented water cylinder. Having mains pressure hot water means that your cold water storage tank can be removed creating space in your loft. There is also no need for power showers as the pressure from an unvented cylinder will give an amazing powerful shower in itself.
As with boilers unvented cylinders come in many different sizes makes and models and choosing the correct one at the survey stage is very important to make sure that your hot water needs are met. Making sure that there is enough hot water for the family is essential but also that the cylinder is not so big that it is unnecessarily heating more water then will ever be used. Bishop’s Stortford Plumbing and Heating will make sure that the right one is selected for your needs.
If your central heating has stopped working then give Bishop’s Stortford Plumbing and Heating a call to arrange an appointment for us to investigate the issue and fix it promptly. It is not uncommon for valves or pumps to get stuck especially if it is the first time of turning your heating back on after summer.
Central heating breakdowns do not have to be expensive like a lot of people think. We will diagnose the issues and address them promptly offering an honest explanation of the faults that we find.
If some of your rooms feel cold compared to others it maybe that the radiators you have installed are not meeting the heat requirements of that room. We can carry out a heat calculation to see if this is the case or if the issue is due to something else.
Radiators also become old over time and the first sign that they may need changing is rust forming on them. With Bathroom radiators its very common to see this due to the moisture within the room. We can advise you on how urgent they need attention.

A central heating system over time can become blocked up with debris in the radiators and the heat exchanger of the boiler. A lot of the time having a chemical power flush of your existing system will remove the vast majority of this build up.

It is advisable to have a gas safety check carried out on a 12 monthly basis and to also complete a service. Like a car that needs an MOT every year to make sure it is safe it is also a good idea to get your gas appliances checked as well. Having these checks carried out can also prevent breakdowns and potential unsafe situations occurring in the future.

Its good practice to have a yearly service carried out on your boiler.
