Many of our professional heating engineers grew up around Portsmouth, and have been installing boilers in the area for years. More recently, we have become expert air source heat pump installers, providing customers around the Great Waterfront city with an eco-friendly option for heating their homes.
Our engineers are both Gas Safe registered and MCS Certified, meaning they are qualified to carry out boiler and heat pump installation, servicing, and repairs to the highest industry standards. We can also issue landlords in Portsmouth with gas safety certificates, ensuring their tenants are safe and secure at their properties.
Our range of new boiler offers include award-winning regular and new combi boilers from leading brands such as Worcester Bosch, Ideal, Baxi, Potterton and Vaillant. As accredited gas and electric heating installers, our experienced team of engineers provide a complete one-stop installation service. Most boilers come with a 12-year guarantee.
You can manage your new boiler based on the needs of you and your family. This greater flexibility in control makes it easier for your home to become more energy efficient – and keep down utility bills.
A new boiler from Aura Heating comes with a guarantee of up to 12 years, and installation is included in the price. Get in touch with us today for a quote.
Once your new boiler has been installed, our heating engineers will complete a handover, so you know how to operate the appliance. We then need to register the boiler with the manufacturer to ensure the guarantee is valid.
The Aura Heating team can often come to your home either the same day or the next day to complete a site survey. In a lot of cases, we no longer come to your home and use a video call to speed the process up so that we can provide a quote very quickly. We'll then provide you with a free, no-obligation quote for the installation or service you need. Depending on the job's complexity, we may be able to complete the installation within 48 hours.
Every household has slightly different needs when it comes to heating and hot water. As part of the survey, we'll help you determine which system is best for you.
There are three main types of boilers to choose from: combi, heat-only and system boilers. Combi boilers are a single unit that provides heat and hot water without needing a separate hot water tank. Heat-only or regular boilers only provide heating through the radiators and need to be connected to a separate cylinder to provide hot water. System boilers are similar to combi boilers but do not produce hot water and must work with a hot water cylinder. However, unlike regular boilers, they don't need a cold-water tank.
There are several steps to fitting a new boiler. First, the old one is removed. If changes to the pipework are necessary, our heating engineers will perform these, then fit your new boiler, system filter, and any other accessories you require, and the system is cleaned and flushed. We'll then commission the system to ensure it works properly and complete a handover, so you know how all the controls work. After that, your new boiler is ready to use.
This depends on the type and location of the replacement. Installing the same type of boiler in the same location can take just one day, while changes to the location of the boiler, or a system upgrade, will take longer - perhaps up to three days. Our experts will quote you timescales following their initial site survey. It is important to remember that sometimes during a job the installation engineer may come up against an unavoidable snag and this may delay completion.
When having a new boiler fitted, you should expect some mess around the work areas. Ensure your heating engineer has easy access to the location of the existing boiler and the radiators, as well as to the location of the new boiler. Our team always tries to ensure they're as tidy as possible and will clear up after themselves once the installation is complete.
Yes, replacing a boiler or carrying out alterations to your heating system requires consent from Building Regulations. However, our heating engineers can self-certify their work and provide a completion certificate, this is sent directly and can take up to 6 weeks from the notification.
This depends on the amount of work that's required. You can expect to spend between £1,500 and £3,500 depending on the boiler and whether you need any changes to the pipework or system. We will always provide a quote before beginning work so you can budget effectively.
Yes. With Aura Heating, you can spread the cost of your new boiler and installation with monthly payments at 0% APR. We also have a 'buy now, pay later' option available. Get in touch today to find out more.
Get in touch with our team to arrange a convenient date and time for a site survey. We can often complete this on the same day or the next day, and afterwards, we'll provide you with a comprehensive quote for the work.
Some households are eligible for a grant to cover part or all of the cost towards a new boiler. For example, under the ECO4 Scheme, some homeowners can receive funding for boiler installation, while others can apply under the Affordable Warmth Obligation. Our team can help you ascertain whether you are eligible for a grant.
New gas boilers are typically 92-94% efficient. That means 92-94% of the energy produced goes into heating your home, while the remaining 6-8% is lost.
Most boilers are compatible with smart thermostats, so the chances are you will be able to operate your new boiler via an app. If you specifically want a smart thermostat, then please make sure you ask for this when we survey your new boiler so that we can quote for this.
Most homeowners choose to have their new boiler fitted in their home's kitchen or utility room, but they can also be fitted in the bathroom, loft or airing cupboard. Whichever location you select, we'll need to be able to adhere to the regulations that ensure the system is safe to use.
Yes, a boiler can be located in the loft space but to ensure that it is safe to work on then you should ensure that you have a fixed light, the loft is boarded to the boiler area and there is a stable, fixed loft ladder. You should also fit a rail around the loft hatch to ensure that the operative does not fall whilst installing or maintaining the boiler. This work would usually be undertaken prior to the installation.
The 2025 gas boiler ban means gas boilers won't be fitted in new-built homes anymore. However, existing homes with them will still be connected to the gas supply. So in time, when your gas boiler needs replacing, you may have to replace it with a heat pump.
Depending on the efficiency of your existing boiler and the type of boiler you are having installed, you could save up to 30% on your energy bills. Our team will be able to give you an estimate once they have completed a site survey.
A 10-year-old boiler will typically be less efficient than a brand-new one, even if it has been serviced regularly. Therefore, replacing it will ensure greater energy efficiency, thereby reducing your bills. However, if your Gas Safe engineer is happy that the appliance is performing well and remains safe, you need not replace it immediately.
Boilers lose some efficiency as they age, but this can be mitigated with regular servicing and maintenance.
Several signs can indicate your boiler needs replacing. For example, if regular repairs are required, investing in a new boiler may be more cost-effective. Similarly, if your appliance produces strange noises or smells, it's likely to need replacing. You can also check your bills - if they seem higher than average, your boiler may be losing efficiency, meaning it's time to replace it.
Once our heating engineers have completed the installation and handover, your boiler will be ready to use immediately.
Yes. Our heating engineers need to flush or clean your system before installing a new boiler, so we'll need to be able to bleed the radiators or turn them off individually. During the site survey, we'll ascertain where all your radiators are and ensure we can access them during installation.
Not always. Our heating engineers will conduct a site survey to determine whether replacement pipework is required before we fit the new appliance.
