You may have a warm air heating system installed at your property that operates by passing cool air through a heat exchanger, usually powered by either gas or electricity. When the air is warmed, it is pushed through into rooms via vents in the floor, walls, or ceiling. The installation of warm air systems was very popular if not trendy in the 1970s. Although over the years most have been replaced by water-filled radiators.
However, a huge number still exist. The design of the system denies the need for wall-hung radiators thus making a room more appealing in terms of layout. One of the shortcomings is the lack of flexibility, which means it cannot be extended if the property has been extended. If the system is gas-powered then a boiler is used to warm the air.
The boiler should be regularly serviced (at least every year) to ensure all is safe. Also, as regulations are constantly being amended regarding ventilation it’s good advice to have a complete assessment of your system to see if it is up to standards complies to produce the heat The system if running on gas will have a gas boiler installed satisfying people's heating requirements people still like it.

Heating hot water with warm air heating
Most people who live with warm air heating actually like it. A well-designed system is quiet, warms the house very quickly and with the absence of radiators makes room layout much easier. On the other hand, some people report problems with draughts, dust being wafted around the house and issues with temperature control.
Draughts are caused by incorrect system design or incorrectly set air outlet grills. Dust should be efficiently removed by an air filter (sometimes missing) and inadequate temperature control can be improved by cleaning the filter or having proportional control instead of an on/off room thermostat.
It could be a problem with the boiler itself causing the issue and not its design/layout.
If you are experiencing problems with your warm air unit you have arrived in the right place. There aren’t many qualified tradespeople with a warm air certificate due to the lack of demand. Unfortunately, this leaves households high and dry. Don’t despair, at Serviceteam Ltd we still have qualified warm air engineers who can repair and service your unit 24/7.

A: There are many variables to consider here. Probably the best approach is to do a comparison i.e how old is the system, how often is it breaking down, are the cost of repairs mounting, is the repair cost nearing the cost of a replacement boiler? If the answer is yes to all of the above then it may be time to consider upgrading to a more efficient ‘A’ rated boiler. First, engage a professional Gas Safe Engineer to diagnose, advise and recommend the best cost-effective option.
A: Well, It depends on the manufacturer, make and model of the warm air heating system. On average the cost of installation can be anywhere between 3 to 4 thousand pounds.
A: Yes, if we compare it to other heating systems its almost 10-18% more energy efficient.
A: Many factors will determine this i.e., your geographical location, changes in weather conditions, temperatures and of course personal preference. There is no specific rule but a remote property in the highlands of Scotland would have different settings to a terraced house in the south of England. However, a recommended thermostat setting range as advised by the Energy Saving Trust suggest setting it to the lowest possible temperature (comfortable) but say in the region of 18-21 degrees C. Remember, for every temperature increase it will show on your energy bill.
A: Well, it depends on the efficiency of your heating system and property size. It takes marginally longer in larger homes with many rooms. As soon as the air is warmed and circulating it should only take minutes for the warm air to exit the vents in each room. Then a while longer for it to reach room temperature as determined by the thermostat setting.
A: Warm air heating systems should be serviced annually to keep the system in good working order. During the service the systems air filters should be replaced or thoroughly cleaned to remove dust particulates and prevent them from circulating the property and aggravating people with allergies.
A: Well it depends on the type of heating system, its configuration and alterations needed to bring it up to current standards. As a benchmark, usually 2 days.

The serviceteam process
Choose your preferred method?
If not now but certainly in the future you’re likely to have something in your home or premises that needs repairing or replacing? When you do we have various ways we can approach your job;
Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements. If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation. Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorization before proceeding.
Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

How do refunds work?
You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.
What if I want to cancel the appointment?
We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.

Do I need to provide parking?
As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
