What time will the installer come?

Do I need to be present during the installation?
Yes, we ask that a decision maker for the property is present throughout the installation.
Will materials arrive with the installer?
Generally yes, our Gas Safe engineer will arrive with the materials required to carry out the installation. In some cases if certain materials are in low supply in your area, they may get delivered separately and will arrive after our installer is present on site.

Does iHeat offer a Power flush?
We don’t currently offer power flushes, we actually recommend this is done prior to installation to ensure any sludge in the system does not damage the new boiler. All iHeat boilers get a chemical flush, free of charge form our Gas Safe registered engineers once installed.
What is the difference between a Power Flush and a Chemical Flush?
While both a power flush and chemical flush are designed to provide a deep cleanse of your central heating system, aiming to remove sludge, dirt and debris from the pipes, there are some key differences between the two. A power flush works by flushing hot water and a combination of chemicals at very high pressure through heating systems, a chemical flush does not rely on high pressure. Instead, chemical flushes use gravity and a cleaning inhibitor to empty the system of debris and then later refill it with clean water.
Will my install require scaffolding?
Usually any installations above the first floor require scaffolding, however we act on a case by case basis as each property and installation is unique.
