London back boiler servicing

Back boilers have played a pivotal role in heating homes throughout the UK for decades. Originating in the 1960s, they were ingeniously designed to fit behind fireplaces, capitalizing on the heat generated by the fire to warm the water within the system. While technological advancements have seen heating systems evolve significantly, the back boiler remains a testament to British ingenuity in home heating. At Heat Quick Direct, we appreciate the heritage and resilience of these units. Despite the rise of more modern condensing boilers, we still encounter many homes cherishing their back boiler systems.
