All boilers in the range are supplied with a five-year warranty as standard, while extended eight-year and 12-year warranties are also available. Clas HE evo boilers have best-in-class NOx emissions, offering efficiencies of up to 90% and outputs ranging from 24kW to 38kW. Plus, thanks to a multi-zone external accessory, all boilers in the range are capable of managing three temperature zones. All Clas HE evo boilers use a proven stainless steel heat exchanger alongside an ‘AUTO’ function, which monitors the ideal temperature for the heating system – reducing peaks in flow temperature and optimising efficiency. Simply pressing the 'AUTO' button on the control panel sees the boiler automatically choose the ideal output for the central heating circuit by gradually increasing power until the room reaches the set temperature, without any excessive peaks. With the AUTO function activated and by fitting an outdoor sensor, with one of the modulating controls, savings in excess of six per cent can be achieved over a standard condensing boiler without similar controls. For ease of installation and maintenance, the boiler features a simple connection kit, which includes a filling loop, auto-diagnostic system, multiple flue options and instant access from the front of the appliance. www.ariston.co.uk www.hpmmag.com December 2016 With the winter months often pushing heating systems to the limit, whether it’s the risk of a burst pipe or a broken boiler, putting measures in place to ensure your system is ready for the colder period is essential for householders looking to keep costly call out fees and replacement charges to a minimum. Ensuring they meet the rise in demand of savvy customers looking to repair rather than replace faulty units, UK Spares, the leading distributor of spare parts within the electrical heating sector, has boosted its range of heating spares, adding to both its thermostat and boiler spare part offerings. The UK Spares range now includes over 100 thermostat products, suitable for everything from towel rail elements, to domestic heaters, through to storage and space heaters. With 1,000s of product lines in stock, the company can quickly source even the most obscure spares from its extensive network of suppliers, providing customers with genuine spare parts from renowned manufacturers such as Dimplex, Heatrae Sadia, Zip and Instanta. www.uk-spares.com Installation of new boilers comes under Part L of the Building Regulations and water treatment is covered by BS 7593: 2006. Ensuring a system is ready for a new boiler makes sense all round and that’s where powerflushing comes in. Removing the debris and sludge that has accumulated in radiators and pipework allows everything to work more efficiently. Adding safe, effective treatment agents to the water can also prevent further damage. It can safeguard against corrosion and inhibit the build-up of scale throughout the whole system, including the boiler itself. We know it’s in the regulations and we know it makes sense, but what’s in it for the trade? Stop thinking about an extra task and think instead about an extra source of income. As householders look for ways to save money on their fuel bills – including updating their boilers – powerflushing is becoming more and more popular. Once you’ve got the equipment, it’s simple. Powerflushing might be a diversion from the work you normally do, but you’ve got the skills and the know-how to make a go of it. And when you’ve got the skills, it’s common sense to make a good living from them. proflush.co.uk Ariston Clas HE boilers provide high efficiency and control enquiry number 163 enquiry number 165
