    Heating Engineer Overview

    Heating and ventilation (HVAC or H&V) engineers install and service the heating and air conditioning systems found mainly in larger buildings, such as public buildings, offices, factories, universities and hospitals. Heating engineers fit heating equipment such as electric boilers, oil-fired or gas boilers and associated pipework systems including radiators in buildings like houses, office blocks, hospitals and schools. They can put in ductwork and ventilation systems in large buildings, fit central heating systems and gas fires in homes and make sure they work properly, plan and carry out regular maintenance and repairs on all heating systems to make sure they are working safely and efficiently.

    A growing part of a heating engineers job today relates to energy efficiency. Energy efficiency is extremely important and part of a heating engineers job would be to make sure that systems work as efficiently as possible, to reduce fossil fuel consumption, carbon emissions and help people to save money and energy. Heating engineers also increasingly work with systems such as under floor heating and solar heating systems, but their bread and butter work remains working with oil, gas and solid fuel boilers plus the associate pipework and radiators.

    Central Heating Systems

    The most common asks for heating engineers by far is the installing and replacing oil & gas boilers and full central heating systems with controls including thermostatic radiator valves, the radiator itself, room controls and programmers, pipework, valves, hot water tanks and central heating pumps. As well as installations, servicing and repairs, heating engineers also carry out minor maintenance work such as insulating pipework or adding corrosion inhibitor to central heating systems.

    It is extremely important to get your boiler, solar water heating system or heat pump installed by a fully trained heating engineers or installers. When choosing a heating engineer, look out for one that offers free quotes with no-obligation, long guarantees, professional help and advice for your specific needs, and peace of mind with Gas Safe and OFTEC registration.

    Typical heating Engineer Jobs and Average costs

    The price of having a brand new central heating system installed will of course depend on the size of your property and whether you have a central heating system already installed. But the average total cost for a complete new central heating installation in the UK is around £3500 to £4500 (including all parts and labour). Another common job is replacement of the main central heating pump, this cost will vary depending on the type of system you have installed, but the labour costs average between £90 and £150. When you are looking to get a new heating system installed I would recommend doing some research in to the cost of getting the exact system you want. There are some great tools online which can help you. For example online cost calculators, they give you a rough estimate on the cost of getting your new system fitted.

    Flushing and annual servicing are probably the most common job for heating engineers. A build-up of sludge in central heating pipes and radiators can stop the heating system from working efficiently and the best way to deal with this problem is to hire a heating engineer to do a central heating power flush, which cost around £300 for a home with 10 radiators. An annual central heating service costs around £80 to £100 as a one off charge, but many companies offer insurance policies which cover your central heating system for breakdown and repair and these include an annual service in the price (typically an annual cost of £160-£260 depending on the level of cover). Connecting gas cookers, ovens and/or hobs can be carried out by qualified engineers for as little as £55.

    Choosing a Heating Engineer Near Me

    Installing a central heating system requires a range of specialist skills related to gas, electricity and water. Nowadays heating engineers and should be Gas Safe registered and posses professional installation skills. National heating companies have all these skills but the downside is that these companies have high overheads that have to be recovered by charging higher prices. Local companies can also offer great installation skills and provide a personal service at a competitive price.

    Whichever type of heating engineer you choose, get two or 3 " like for like " quotes. Always check they are on the Gas Safe register, have a trading address and contact telephone number, have public liability insurance and can provide references on previous installation job. Also check the length of the manufacturer's guarantee.
