water heating

It is important to properly size a water heater to meet the needs of a business or household and ensure optimum efficiency. As a result, Ariston has introduced a comprehensive guide to its portfolio of high-quality vented, unvented and instantaneous electric water heaters, outlining which models are best suited for a range of domestic and light commercial applications throughout the UK. The guide can be found in the new Ariston hot water brochure.

Ariston’s water heating guide makes it simple to identify which product is best suited for a project, by cross referencing the types of outlet with the intended levels of use. For example, it identifies that for a single basin with a light level of water usage, the wall-mounted, 5-litre Piccolo would be adequate. Similarly, for heavy use applications looking to feed three wash basins or a kitchen sink, 30-litre capacity Andris Lux or Andris Lux Eco water heaters should be installed.

gas boiler

We are working with an increasing number of housing associations in the UK because we are able to provide gas boilers that are economical to run and low on harmful emissions. These are important, verifiable factors, but the one overriding benefit our clients demand is peace of mind, in the form of cast iron reliability. Our boilers aren’t cast iron of course, but their reliability has been the number one reason for going Intergas and now, thanks to Which? Magazine, this reliability has been endorsed by its Trusted Traders in its report published on 24th November.

time switches

For over 65 years, Sangamo has been manufacturing its famous Round Pattern Time Switches to the same high standard that was first achieved back in the 1950’s.  With over 11 million units sold to date, the installation of a Sangamo Round Pattern Time Switch (RPTS) used to be a regular job for many electricians. Despite the electro-mechanical time switches being less common today, the company still reports sales of thousands of units each month, both as replacements and as brand new installations.

H&V awards

Every year many of us in the H&V industry spend much of our time, and not an inconsiderable amount of our budgets, attending award ceremonies. Then we moan about it… unless we win. So why do we keep entering? Terri Taylor, Marketing Executive, Intergas, believes that awards are good, but some are better than others.
