Installation of a new Worcester Bosch 38CDI condensing boiler in Balham SW12

We are local plumbers in Balham SW12, and have been doing plumbing in Balham SW12 since 2004.
Just this Friday in Balham we completed an installation of a new Worcester Bosch 38cdi.

The new boiler was fitted on Sistova Road SW12, just around the corner from Pizza Express!

The original boiler was one of the first Baxi condensing boilers ever made and it was showing signs of extreme neglect such as rusting, making a banging noise when running and water leaks. The system seemed to have gained a lot of sludge due to these issues. The only way forward was to replace the boiler, as it would be too costly to repair.

So we took all the details and emailed the customer a quote, which was excepted, so we then booked in to do the works.
We arrived at the property at 7.15am, which is a normal start time for boiler installations. Our boiler installations usually take up to a day to complete. Firstly we have to drain down the whole heating system. Once this is done we have to shut off gas and water supplies. We then open all the vents and drain down, the boiler is carefully taken apart and removed. On this boiler replacement in Balham the customer wanted the new boiler installed to fit on the original boxing, but as the old boiler was a lot bigger than the new boiler we had to use a core drill to drill a new hole.

We usually also fit the Worcester Bosch dt20rf stat with a new boiler, but this customer wanted to use his original stat as it was not very old. We unpacked the new boiler and parts, then we removed the fixing frame from the boiler box and fitted it to the wall. Once this is done, we made a start on fitting the pipe work to the frame. When we pipe up the frame, we have to cross over heating and hot water supplies to suit new locations. When this has been completed, we then look to install the main Worcester Bosch 38cdi boiler on the new frame which is screwed and fixed to the wall. In order to install one of these boilers, we require two people, especially to fit the main gas boiler, as they can be very heavy and this helps to avoid injuries to your back. We do not take any unnecessary safety risks when carrying out a new boiler installation.

Once the new boiler is installed on the frame we can then begin to connect all the pipe work. We then turn everything on and test the cold and hot supplies, checking for any leaks.
After this we turn on and test the heating system; firstly we fill and pressurize the heating system to check if we have any leaks, once this is done we can fill the system and flush through with mains water pressure. Finally we part drain and add inhibitor to the system as this stops any further sludge building up and damaging the new boiler.
We then test the gas for leaks. After the test as been passed, we fire up and commission the new boiler.
The customer was very happy to have his heating and hot water back on as the system broke down on boxing day so they had been left without a working boiler for a few days.
Once we have finished a boiler installation, we register the new boiler with Gas Safe and also register the boiler with Worcester Bosch. We are accredited Worcester Bosch installers and currently offer a seven year warranty on the boiler.
