SJB Mechanical is registered to undertake domestic and commercial gas installations. Our work range runs from domestic condensing boiler installations through to hospital heating and large industrial gas projects.
Domestic Gas Engineers
We deal with landlords’ certifications and breakdowns for landlords, letting agents and property owners.
Our certification allows us to work on controlled appliances such as condensing boilers.
A typical domestic gas project will involve upgrades, often converting an old style gas heating system, to a modern condensing heating system. We do home gas appliance repairs to fires, boilers and cookers and also home installations. Many combination boilers over 23 or 13 years are in need of replacement by a modern condensing boiler.
Condensing Boiler Manufacturers
A condensing boiler is the most efficient boiler type. Boilers and given Band Ratings from G up to A, only condensing boilers are A Rated. Some older condensing boilers can be B or C Rated but all new ones are A Rated.
Valient boilers are very popular, as are Potterton, which carry a 9 year guarantee. Other well known condensing boiler manufacturers include Ideal, Glow-Worm and Worcester Bosch.
Your Gas Installation Process
For a larger scale gas installation we will install the low pressure gas supply, taking it from the meter into the customer’s premises, or from their boundary line in the case of a commercial installation, to the gas appliances – boiler, fire, cooker etc. Most domestic installations involve putting in copper or stainless steel tracking pipe to feed the gas to the appliances. Once appliances are fed, we will test and commission them and put them on line. We then issue a certificate and notify the Local Authority of the works carried out.
Commercial Gas Engineering Project
Meadow Court is a purpose built care home in the grounds of the King George Hospital in Ilford, Essex. Here we have installed an independent boiler room for the care home, replacing service from the communal heating system for the whole estate.
In this large project we have created a plant room and installed 6 Broaga boilers on a split heat plate exchange system, connecting to the existing equipment. We also brought a new water main in from the main road. The project involved us introducing 300 metres of gas pipe and co-ordinating with the Local Authority for them to do the connection.
