Boiler installation and replacement areas we cover

Blue flame picture showing clean combustion after gas boiler service. Lovekin carry out gas boiler installation and gas boiler replacement in Bracknell, Basingstoke, Alton, Bordon, Wokingham, Guildford, Camberley, Fleet, Farnborough, Woking, Yateley, Crowthorne and Sandhurst

You’re welcome to ring us if you’re looking for a quote for gas boiler replacement or a full central heating system installation but you’re also welcome to ring us if you simply want to talk about options and need advice.

We service lots of old gas boilers, the oldest made in 1967, and we’ll never push you to change your boiler unnecessarily.

We’ll be happy to provide you with a written quotation for a new boiler or a full central heating installation and we'll give you honest advice on what is best for you and what sort of savings you might achieve.

Lovekin also replace radiators, radiator valves and circulating pumps and central heating controls like programmers, thermostats, and motorised valves.

For the long list of where we’re happy to carry out installation work please see the panel on the right.

If your gas boiler has been condemned, your decisions are about which replacement boiler you need, whether there is other work that it makes sense to do at the same time and who you want to do the work.

If you’ve been told that parts are unavailable it may be worth checking before you have your boiler replaced. We’ll always tell you whether we think the parts you need for your boiler are still available. Alternatively, you could try Central Heating Spares in Camberley. We think they’re the best boiler spares stockist in our area. Their phone number is 01276 35223. If CHS can’t access the parts you need for your boiler you’re unlikely to get them anywhere.

If you are planning to change your gas boiler for  a high efficiency boiler to save money, it may be worth reading our article on gas boiler efficiency before making a decision. Our industry has a vested interest in exaggerating the savings you will make by changing your boiler. We service a lot of gas boilers locally and, where possible, carry out combustion analysis using an electronic combustion gas analyser (ECGA). This gives us a gross efficiency figure for the boiler as it is operating, at the end of the boiler service.

Most of the room-sealed gas boilers we check (and most boilers we service are room-sealed) have a gross efficiency of about 80%. New, high efficiency gas boilers (also called condensing boilers) have a gross efficiency of 88%-90% using the same combustion analysers. This means, for most existing gas boilers, that you can expect a saving of between 10% and 15% in gas usage if you change to a new, high efficiency gas boiler (assuming that your hot water use, how warm you keep your house, and weather conditions all stay the same).

For more information on gas boiler efficiency and the difference between gross efficiency and net efficiency our article is here.

Though Basingstoke, Bracknell, Leatherhead, Dorking, Cranleigh, Haslemere, Bordon and Alton, are further from where we are based we’re increasing the number of customers we have in those areas and provide the same level of quality and service as we do for our customers who are nearer to home. Please feel free to ring us and we'll be happy to talk to you. Or, if you prefer, you can email us

If you find the terminology relating to gas boilers confusing, like the difference between regular boilers, conventional boilers, high efficiency boilers or combination boilers, we’ve tried to explain some of the terms on the home page of this website here.

When we are installing, our first choice of boiler manufacturer is Worcester-Bosch. Their commitment to quality, service and backup means they are well ahead of most of the competition.

We are Worcester Accredited Installers and can extend the warranty on their boilers to between 5 and 7 years, depending on the boiler model. This warranty is serviced by Worcester-Bosch's own engineers and covers all parts and labour on the boiler (subject to their terms and conditions). We will include the cost of the extension warranty in the boiler replacement quotation.

We have a section on the home page of this site dealing with gas appliance terminology. We explain a lot of terms used, such as:

Conventional boilers, regular boilers, high efficiency boilers, condensing boilers, room-sealed boilers, open-flued boilers, multipoint water heaters, flueless appliances and back boilers. The section also deals with some of the terminology relating to central heating controls such as programmers, time clocks, programmable room thermostats and motorised valves. Terminology used in the gas and central heating industry can be ambiguous and quite confusing!

We have a separate web site recording information about central heating and boiler problems and fault-finding of gas boilers and central heating controls. You can find it at It includes information on radiator valves and balancing radiators. The site is still basic and we will improve it as soon as we can but there’s quite a lot of useful information there already, with articles about central heating system pressure, high efficiency boilers and gross and net boiler efficiency and boiler condensate drain problems among others.
