Hounsfield Boilers brings revolutionary boilers to Suffolk

Suffolk-based inventor and entrepreneur, Andrew Hounsfield, Hounsfield Boilers, is launching a revolutionary range of cost effective, oil-fired, ‘Tuscan’ wall-mounted boilers.

Hounsfield Boilers are designed and manufactured at their base in Needham Market, which was set up in 2008 by Andrew after 30 years in the boiler industry. His boilers have become popular with plumbers and installers thanks to their ingenious design and durability, many of his boilers have found homes in some of the region’s most prestigious properties.

Andrew describes his inspiration on why he decided to invent the Hounsfield Boiler. He says: “I had worked for some of the biggest UK boiler companies, but I had become frustrated - manufacturers had become too price focused, which had driven down the quality of the boilers on offer. I decided to put the customer first and invent a boiler which would minimise the lifetime running costs for the homeowner and create a practical design that’s easy to install and service for the installer, whilst still delivering a value for money product. With my engineering background I was able to design an oil-fired boiler that satisfied these objectives and also develop a high-performance boiler with a host of features not found on any other in the marketplace”.

Some of the extraordinary features included on Hounsfield Boilers include air-craft grade materials, clever design, and extra thick insulation to retain heat and reduce noise; these factors culminate to create a market leading product.

Andrew adds: “Our new range of Hounsfield wall-mounted boilers have retained all of these key features,  with the addition of tough weather proof casing for the external model and a compact size.”

He continued: “The Hounsfield oil-fired boilers are ideal for rural locations and we can supply our  external models in a range of colours that will comply with the special requirements of being a listed building or being in a conservation area”.

Hounsfield Boilers are based at Lion Barn Industrial Estate, Needham Market and all components are sourced from the UK
