Boilers that are over ten years old waste a lot of valuable energy, in terms of cost and environmental impact, in fact many older boilers convert as little as 60% of the fuel they use into heat and they can breakdown more frequently. We specialise in Combi Boiler replacement, new installation and servicing of modern highly efficient Condensation Boilers.

Different boiler types

Combination (combi) boilers

‘Combi’ is short for combination, because the boiler does two things in combination. It heats water and provides central heating to your home.

Combi boilers heat water as you draw it from the tap. They don’t need a water storage tank because the boiler’s connected directly to the water mains, heating water as it’s needed.

Homes which suit combi boilers

Combi boilers are cost effective and energy efficient, with a compact size that’s ideal for smaller properties where space is limited. Because there’s no need for a water storage tank or a hot water cylinder, a combi boiler can free up space for conversion, storage and living.

System boilers

System boilers – also known as sealed system boilers – need a water cylinder to store hot water, which usually sits in an airing cupboard.

In a system boiler, the heating and water systems are built into the boiler itself – there is no need for a water tank like you would need for a regular boiler system.

Homes which suit system boilers

System boilers are ideal for homes with more than one bathroom, and can give a constant supply of hot water to any number of taps at the same time.

Regular boilers (open vent)

Regular boilers – sometimes known as open vent, heat only or gravity-fed boilers, provide central heating and hot water through a hot water storage cylinder, often found in an airing cupboard, and cold water tank usually found in the loft.

Homes which suit open vent boilers

If your home has multiple bathrooms, open vent boilers are perfect as they can provide a lot of hot water at the same time. Open vent boilers work well if you are replacing an old open vent heating system, and are ideal if water pressure is low in your area.

Installation of new bathroom.

“I am absolutely thrilled with the transformation Antonio has done on my bathroom. His attention to detail was second to none and nothing was too much trouble. I was also very impressed with the extra finishing touches that make it look amazing. Thank you. Highly recommended!”

Miss Brown, Hove, March 2016

Complete bathroom refurbishment.

“Antonio was a great find, he worked together with us on planning and design and gave good advice about which fixtures and fitting would best suit our space and needs. He was very flexible when it came to planning the job and working to our schedule. He has a keen eye for detail and the quality of the fit and finish was really excellent. He and his team were able to cover all aspects of our new bathroom fit, from installing new fixtures, to plumbing, and tiling. Thank you for all your hard work, we love our new bathroom and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the services of AC Plumbing, Heating & Bathrooms to others.”

Mr Dan McQue, Brighton, November 2016

Plumb in new bathroom suite, make custom taps, fit new boiler, plumb in new kitchen, replace radiators.

“Antonio’s ‘can do’ attitude sums him up. Access was limited to the external toilet waste and scaffolding was expensive. Of the 8 plumbers interviewed only Antonio was willing to climb out of a 3rd story window on a harness. Extreme plumbing we called it! He fitted a new suite, custom built a gorgeous copper shower, taps and sink, fitted a new boiler at a very good price, replaced all radiators and installed new gas, water and waste for a relocated kitchen in a room where other plumbers said it was too difficult. Polite, punctual, tidy, very hard working and highly recommended.”

Mr & Mrs Owen, Hove, May 2016

Complete bathroom and additional WC closet replacement.

“Antonio has completely refurbished our bathroom and WC to the highest possible standard. He has done a fantastic job. He is meticulous with all aspects of his work; you are kept fully updated with the progress throughout. Antonio is fastidious regarding cleanliness. I would not hesitate to recommend AC Plumbing Heating & Bathrooms to anyone wanting work done to the very highest level.”

Mr Chris Batterbee, Brighton, February 2016

Boiler replaced and moved.

“Antonio was a pleasure to have around the house and kept us fully informed of options/decisions to be made along the way.”

Ms Allison Wightman, Hove, January 2016

New shower cubicle with tiles and re-plaster.

“Excellent communication throughout with pictures to support all discussions. Clear explanation of works to be completed and any additional costs. Finished in a tidy and timely manner. Very competent and goof result. Highly recommended.”

Mrs Barbara Jackson, Hove, January 2016

Gas certificate and toilet valve replaced and shower controls fixed.

“Antonio was very good, able to come within 2-3 days of contacting and arrived on time. He was very thorough in producing the gas safety certificate and was able to fix my issues with the toilet and shower very easily. Would highly recommend.”

Mr David Haddrell, Hove, November 2015

New bathroom. Not just that, the floor and walls behind and under the bath were destroyed and fully repaired.

“Turned up on time. Did the work on time. Courteous. Completely honest about all stuff happening. Bathroom looks brilliant!”

Mr Andrew Smith, Brighton, November 2015

Fitted and plumbed in a new electric shower.

“Very professional, conscientious and tidy. Work was done with no fuss and an easy manner. Left the place spotless. I would recommend him without reservation.”

Mr Jake Saltiel, Hove, October 2015

Fitted shower cubicle and detected and fixed leaks.

“Before Antonio came to do work on our shower, we had a wonky cubicle and leaking shower base - courtesy of a so called plumber! We are so pleased we found Antonio as he came in and sorted out our shower completely. He detected the leak, he managed to refit the shower cubicle without instructions and did a fantastic job on the tiling. We now have a super shower with no leaks! Antonio updated me with the progress of the work. He is very conscientious and tidy and went out of his way to make the whole process stress free. We feel very lucky to have found a great plumber that we can trust”

Mrs Cindy Tsang Wylie, Brighton, June 2015

Putting right some work done by another plumber and fitting a new wash basin.

“Antonio had to investigate some errors made by another plumber in order to get my new shower working. He discovered that the pump fitted was the wrong one, ordered the correct one for the water system and fitted it. He also fitted a new wash basin. I was really pleased with everything that he did. Antonio is very polite and friendly, he cleaned up really well and it was a pleasure to meet him. I feel blessed to have found a plumber who is professional and knows what he is doing :)”

Mrs Julie Peterson, Brighton, June 2015

New bathroom.

“I asked Antonio to re-do my bathroom after being really impressed with how he'd installed an immersion heater a few months previously. He was fantastic throughout the whole process and I’m really pleased with the end result. He was also very flexible, I was very last minute with ordering things and asking him to do stuff, and he took it all in his stride where others might have gotten annoyed. Everything was done to a high standard and with good humour too. I totally trusted him in my house while I was at work too, which is really important.”

Mr Stephen Challis, Brighton, May 2015

Detective work to find source of leak then fixed leak.

“Finding Antonio through Checkatrade was a blessing. His communications before and during the job were excellent and the job was carried out thoroughly and effectively. I would highly recommend him for any plumbing needs.”

Ms Caroline Gunston, Hove, April 2015

Unblocking kitchen waste pipe.

“It was very convenient that Antonio answered my phone and agreed to come over and a Saturday morning. He was in my flat at 9 o'clock, as promised, and carried out the job perfectly. He is a friendly and reliable guy, and he knows what he’s doing. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.”
