Boilers in London

At Heat Quick Direct, we understand the critical role that a reliable boiler plays in the central heating system of your home or business, especially during the chilly London winters. Boiler systems are an integral part of modern living, providing efficient heating and hot water on demand. Our team is here to help you navigate the world of boiler systems, ensuring you have all the information you need to make the best choice for your property.

How boiler systems work

Understanding the inner workings of boiler systems is key to appreciating their efficiency and the comfort they bring to our homes and workplaces. At Heat Quick Direct, we believe in empowering our customers with knowledge to make informed decisions about their heating needs. So, let’s dive a bit deeper into how boiler systems operate.

In its most basic form, a boiler system functions by heating water and then circulating that heated water or steam through a network of pipes and radiators throughout your property. This process is intricate, involving several key components and steps to ensure efficient heating and hot water supply.



The process begins with the combustion of fuel. Depending on your boiler type, this could be gas, oil, or biomass. The combustion chamber ignites the fuel, creating heat.

Heat Exchanger 

The generated heat is then transferred to a heat exchanger, where cold water from your property’s mains supply is warmed up. This is a critical step, as it’s where the energy from the burned fuel is used to heat the water.


Once heated, the water (or steam, in some systems) is pushed through a series of pipes that run throughout your property. A pump ensures that this hot water circulates effectively, reaching radiators, underfloor heating systems, or taps as needed.

Radiators and Convection

In the case of radiators, the hot water enters, heating up the radiator’s metal surfaces. As the metal heats up, it warms the surrounding air through a process known as convection, effectively heating the room.

Return Path 

After the water has circulated through the system and cooled down, it returns to the boiler to be reheated and start the process again. This closed-loop system ensures efficiency and helps to conserve energy.

Thermostats and Control

Modern boiler systems are equipped with thermostats and control systems, allowing you to set your desired temperature and heating schedules. These controls ensure that the boiler is only working when it needs to, further enhancing the system’s efficiency.

Safety Measures

Safety is paramount in boiler systems. Built-in safety measures, such as pressure relief valves and thermostats, ensure that the system operates within safe parameters, preventing overheating and potential damage.

Types of boiler systems

Navigating through the vast array of boiler systems can be overwhelming, but choosing the right boiler type is crucial for ensuring efficient heating and hot water supply in your property. At Heat Quick Direct, we pride ourselves on our expertise in a variety of boiler systems, from gas boilers to electric, helping our clients in London make informed decisions suited to their unique needs. Below is a comprehensive guide to the different types of boiler systems available.
