The Vaillant Unistor Unvented Cylinder
Vaillant's latest range of stainless steel unvented cylinders gives you the option of a broad range of capacities from 125 litres up to 310 litres. Whichever cylinder you choose, you can be sure of the quality and performance that you expect from Vaillant.

In addition, a high recovery heating coil and superb reheat times being best in class make uniSTOR the only choice in unvented cylinders. And what's more, the uniSTOR range is fully compatible both with Vaillant system boilers (high efficiency ecoTEC and standard efficiency thermoCOMPACT boilers) as well as any other manufacturers' boilers - so whatever the system you can always add an extra touch of Vaillant performance.
The Vaillant EcoTecPLUS 937 Boiler
The ecoTEC plus 937 requires no hot water cylinder or cold water storage tank in the loft. The ecoTEC plus 937 provides a high level of hot water comfort due to its 'actoSTOR' fully integrated storage tank and is ideally suited to properties with higher hot water demands - typically a 3/4 bedroom detached house with one or two bathrooms and an en-suite.

The ecoTEC plus 937 has 2 year warranty and offers a central heating heat output of 28kW.
The Vaillant ecoTEX Excklusive Boiler Range
ecoTEC pro 24 and 28 combination boilers have the same high build quality as ecoTEC plus combi models, but with a more basic specification.

ecoTEC pro models are ideally suited to properties such as a 1 bedroom apartment / flat with 1 bathroom or 2/3 bedroom semi-detached with 1 bathroom and en-suite.

Note: For new build installations please ensure that the boiler selection meets NHBC guidelines
Within a very short time, your heating system can fill up with harmful, heat-absorbing sludge. Let us remove it for you and prevent its return.

When two dissimilar metals are present in a liquid the result is electrolysis where molecules of one are released to be deposited on the other. This leads to free ferrous particles floating around in the water of your central heating system. In turn these corrode and can very quickly fill up the water passages with a metallic, rusty sludge. This dramatically reduces the overall efficiency of the system, costing you money all the time your heating runs. Additionally, the life of pumps, radiators and boilers can be cut to a fraction of what it should be.

Prevention is better than cure.

The building regulations now stipulate that any new boiler fitment has to be accompanied by a thorough chemical clean of the heating system to flush out potentially damaging and heat-absorbing matter. When refilling the system, a good anti-corrosive agent is essential to prevent this build up occurring (it takes only a matter of weeks).

Additionally, you can fit a Magna Clean unit, which is essentially a magnetic cored sump where any ferrous particles are trapped for convenient removal later on. The important thing is that they no longer circulate in your heating system and you get the best value for money out of the gas that you use.

So, our advice is not to wait until you need a new boiler. Protect the one you have by calling us now to book a power flush, chemical clean and anti-corrosion treatment of your heating system. It costs less than most people think and can save you a small fortune in the longer term.

Control temperature, control b
Room thermostat VR81 The display of the VR 81 shows the current room temperature. With the ‘turn and click’ handling, the desired room temperature can easily be changed. The remote control unit VR 81 has two possible functions: In a single-zone heating system, the VR 81 will be installed on the wall inside a living area while the weather compensator VRC 470 remains in the boiler fascia. When used with a two zone heating system the VR 81 becomes the room thermostat for the second heating zone while the weather compensator VRC 470 or VRC 470f would act as a room thermostat for the first heating zone. For this installation an additional VR 61 wiring centre is required.

Nicol Heating Services is on the Gas Safe Register, number 19871. The importance of checking this accreditation before having any gas work carried out cannot be over-stressed. In the UK, it is a legal requirement for anyone carrying out work on gas installations to be registered. This ensures that standards of performance and safety are consistent. The dangers of CO poisoning or explosion through incorrect fitting or maintenance are very real and the consequences can be catastrophic.

Our Philosophy

The most important consideration for anyone working within the gas industry must always be safety.
Therefore, at Nicol Heating Services we always work to the correct safety procedures and are conversant with all safety regulations related to working with gas.
We carry our Gas Safe registration cards at all times, which gives peace of mind to customers knowing that you are properly trained to carry out the work.

After safety, our biggest concern is service. We don't just mean being able to effectively carry out the repair or installation, as anyone with the correct training in the industry can do this.
What is also important is being punctual, and if you are running late due to traffic or unforeseen circumstances, informing your customers of the situation is a must.
Taking care to work as neatly and cleanly as possible, and presenting yourself and even your vehicle well are important to the first impression people get of your business.
Something we strive to do, especially with regard to repair work, is to get the fault rectified in one visit.
Nobody wants to wait in for a second visit after ordering a part. This could mean taking time off work which is always a problem for people. With this in mind, we carry an extensive range of spare parts and therefore very rarely have to make a second visit.
We believe that if we can provide the best possible service for our customers, it is far more likely that they will use us again and recommend us to their friends and family.
