Central Heating Services in Poole and Bournemouth

Central Heating System:

MP Plumbing & Heating will supply and install a Central Heating System designed to your needs.

The conventional system involves the installation of two water tanks, usually place in the loft. The larger tank is the ‘cold water storage tank‘. This tank stores water taken from the cold water main and is fed down to the cylinder which is usually kept inside an airing cupboard.

The smaller tank is called the ‘feed and expansion tank’. This tank keeps water maintained at the correct level inside the central heating system. when the water gets hot, it will expand and the feed and expansion tank is designed to allow this, hence the name.

The cylinder will then be heated by the central heating boiler by converting the cold water into hot water. This hot water is released by the cylinder to the taps within the property.


With this central heating system, you are not limited to the amount of hot water appliances that you can use at one time. If for some reason the cylinder no longer provides hot water, it might need to be replaced.

Central Heating Controls:

To ensure efficiency of the boiler, cylinder and radiators, controls are supplied. With the controls you are able to only use hot water when you need it, so the system is not always retaining hot water. When we install the correct control we can advise you on how to keep your central heating system running as effectively as it can.

Modern conventional systems should have the following controls:

  • Programmer (heating and hot water controls)
  • Room thermostat
  • Cylinder thermostat
  • Wiring centre
  • Motorised valves
  • Pump
  • Thermostatic radiator valves (on selected radiators)

Combination systems should have the following controls:

  • Programmer (heating only control, water operates when tap is used)
  • Room thermostat
  • Thermostatic radiator valves (on selected radiators)


Here at MP Plumbing & Heating we only supply the highest quality radiators with top grilles and side panel fittings. Our radiators have white finish and smooth services for both a pleasing appearance and long lifespan.
