Central Heating

When winter hits and the weather begins to become unbearably cold, you need to be confident that your heating system will keep you toasty warm and comfortable inside. Francis Plumbing can accommodate all your heating needs from the sale of your new heater to the installation through to repairing and servicing your existing heater. With a team of experienced and professional technicians Francis Plumbing won’t leave you shivering this winter.


Gas central heating provides powerful, natural heat for either the whole home or a zoned single room solution; you will always feel warm and comfortable no matter how cold it gets outside. Air is drawn from inside your home, rapidly heated, and then distributed through ceiling or floor vents

With gas central heating air is heated by a gas furnace by passing cold air over a heat exchanger and the warmed air (generally to 50C to 70C) is then pushed through ducts into the home via a series of vents in either the ceiling or floor. The furnace draws the air from inside your home into a return air grille where it may pass through a filter, from here it then flows through the heat exchanger where it's warmed, repeating this cycle throughout the whole operation (recirculating the air within the home).

A thermostat senses the air temperature inside the home and sends a signal to the heater to cycle on, or off, to maintain the desired temperature. All by-products of the combustion cycle are all discharged (via a flue) safely to outside the home.

Optional modern add on features such and Wi-Fi, add on central cooling, and fully programable touch screen controllers are available on selected models. Available in natural or LPG gas.

Our team can assist in completely new installations, changeover of existing central heaters, maintenance/repairs and servicing.
