3rd floor refurb

Case Study: Third floor heating problems


Solve the owner’s current difficulties in receiving hot water and heating problems on the refurbished third floor of their property.

Property Type:

5 Bed, 2-bathroom, Semi-Victorian house. Sheffield, West Yorkshire


Review of existing system:

The customer needed to have hot water and heating on the refurbished third floor of the property and wanted to add an en-suite to the same floor.

Their existing vented Valient water and heating system was gravity fed with the tanks situated below the level of the third floor. This meant that the water and heating couldn’t reach the third floor.



Replace the existing system with a more modern system that will allow for the renovation and updating of the third floor of this house.



We fitted a 210-litre vented cylinder with mains pressure to the hot water and a 32kw Ideal Vogue Max heating system on the third floor.

It has given the client the opportunity to not only have an en-suite installed but also a fully functioning system that heats the whole house.  Ready for use now and for when guests come to visit (when the time comes).

Not only does it mean the owners can use all the floors of their house, they have a very efficient and economic boiler, controlled remotely via NEST that has a 10-year guarantee. An end to their heating problems.



The client was thrilled with the results (and is also toasty warm!).

3rd floor refurb



I recently have had fitted a whole new heating system by Bradley Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services. We had an old boiler that couldn’t service our homes needs; we needed powerful water flow to multiple bathrooms and heating across 3 floors.

After giving a competitive quote and understanded our tight schedule to get works done so we wasn’t held up with our renovations. Stephen addressed all our needs and delivered exactly what we wanted on time and in budget.

They turned up when they said (which is a bonus as this doesn’t always happen with tradesmen) and completed the work on time. 

Bradley Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services is a 5 Star company an will be definitely using them again for further work in our home.

    Trustworthy, reliable, friendly and brilliant at what they do…

    We have used Bradley Plumbing for many years within the Sheffield Methodist Circuit and they are very good. They have provided us with gas inspections, installations, callouts, service and repairs on gas, heating and plumbing issues plus bath installations. No job is too small or too big for them. Their response and customer service are excellent and they are great to work with.  I would definitely recommend them.


  • What Our Clients Say

    As a private landlord I always need reliable trades who I can trust to carry out work for me when needed, as I don’t always see the end result of the work it the property already has a tenant in place.

    Since I’ve been using Steve and the team at Bradley Plumbing and Heating, I have never looked back. Weather its just been a Gas Safe check or a full heating system I’ve always been given honest advice on the best way forward. The solution has always been completed on time and within the price or budget given before the work commenced.
