Electric Central Heating

If you are planning on renovating your Thame home, then it may be worth considering upgrading your current heating system to electric heating. Compact, portable electric heaters can be installed by our kitchen fitters and bathroom fitters, into contemporary kitchen and bathroom suites, which is a major benefit for the heating of properties in Thame that are not connected to the gas grid.

Due to intelligent heating controls, electric boilers require little maintenance, which means that upkeep costs are low, and the servicing of central heating systems is typically reserved for annual inspections.

Gas Central Heating

Our team of bathroom fitters, kitchen fitters and plumbers are approved to install Worcester Bosch products as well as a variety of energy-saving, gas-fuelled boilers, at homes in Thame and the surrounding areas.

As a reminder, you should only ever call Gas Safe registered plumbers for any boiler and central heating work. An unregistered individual attempting this type of work could compromise safety, as well as the condition of your boiler. If in doubt, please check with our local plumbers who will be delighted to assist.


Combi boilers are compact models that are easy to store at homes in Thame and can be integrated into any home design. They provide hot water and central heating and installation can be carried out by expert bathroom fitters, kitchen fitters and plumbers. Combi boilers free up space as storage cylinders or cold-water tanks are not required for the system to function and are great for those homes in Thame that have limited room.

  • Combi boilers are small, highly efficient to run and reduce energy bills
  • Heating water directly means high-pressure, hot water is readily available for hot taps and showers
  • Gas boilers can easily be inspected by our plumbers and engineers to find any faults and carry out necessary boiler repairs


System boilers don’t take up a lot of space and can therefore be installed by plumbers, bathroom fitters and kitchen fitters, in more convenient places around the home and although most of the central heating and hot water is operated by the boiler, a cylinder is essential to store hot water.

  • Suited to larger homes in Thame with a higher demand for hot water
  • Simultaneously supplies hot water for taps in kitchens and multiple bathrooms
  • Installations at old and new homes can be undertaken quickly and simply
  • Compatible with solar hot water systems for lower, energy-efficient bills


In older Thame properties, it’s common to find regular boilers that use both cold-water storage tanks and hot water cylinders to manage the central heating water levels. Due to their age, these boilers may require regular repairs and servicing of central heating systems. However, we have a team of plumbers and engineers available to discuss compatible upgrade solutions.

  • Traditional models which benefit homes in Thame with low water pressure
  • Great option for properties with multiple bathrooms, providing constant hot water at the same time
  • Easy for our plumbers to connect regular boilers to solar hot water systems for cheaper, environmentally friendly heating alternatives


There are many reasons to choose our local plumbers over those that are unregistered in the Thame area. These include:

  • A warm, friendly and welcoming manner, with clear answers to your questions
  • You save money by ensuring the work gets done right the first time
  • Our local plumbers always adhere to best practice for quality installations
  • A robust knowledge of various makes, models and renewable solutions
  • Our Gas Safe registered plumbers prioritise safety against carbon monoxide leaks
