Came home today from work and found a leak at lower level as hubbie had put a screw through a heating pipe whilst securing a floor board for new carpets to be installed. We had to isolate our water supply. PHD arrived within the hour and made the repair. Had to postpone the carpet install as I wasn't sure it would be fixed today but it was. I can wait a week for carpet. Good job PHD thank you

Daniel was at our apartment block for two days recently to service the heating system. He was friendly, had a can-do approach and got my heating working again. He fixed various components (including a seized-up pump), trying different things out to find a solution. Highly recommended.

FAQ

Here are some common search queries and our best answers...

How often should boilers be serviced?

Most energy companies, when giving the service, would say your boiler needs to be looked at at least once a year. Making sure you get regular services will cut the costs and avoid having to fork out for any repairs.

Is it worth getting my boiler serviced? 

If you are not getting the recommended amount of checks on your boiler then the  risk of it being faulty is increased. This can lead to more serious problems like carbon monoxide poisoning for you and your family, even having no heating or hot water during the winter for a week or more due to a broken/faulty boiler.

Is it worth repairing a boiler?

By having your boiler repaired, it's the most efficient way to have your heating back on and can be cost effective too. Having a newer boiler is much more reliable and you will less likely need the boiler replaced later on. 

What is the average cost to install a boiler?

The average cost depends on the boiler, for a budget model it can be between £600-£900 that being a new system boiler too. Then for a mid-range model it's £900-£1,300 price range. You are looking at about £1,300-£2,500 for a premium model boiler. Some regular boilers or heat-only boilers can vary between £500-£2,500, that's on size and quality.

What does servicing a gas boiler consist of?

Your engineer will start off by giving the boiler a visual check, this is making sure the boiler and pipework are positioned and installed correctly. They will then check if the boiler is working correctly and look to spot any problems. Then will continue to take off the boiler casing and look at the components attached.

What is involved in servicing an oil boiler?

Firstly the engineer will start off by checking the oil boilers pipework, making sure its all in the correct place, then continue to check the ventilation and clearance area. The engineer will then inspect then start to deconstruct and clean all parts ready to be put back into place. Once that is done the oil boiler will have a combustion test to check it works properly.

Who do I call for boiler problems?

If you are someone who knows nothing or very little about boilers, then calling someone who is qualified is the solution. Making sure you stay calm when the problem occurs will give the boiler engineer a better understanding of what's happened.

What is boiler installation?

Every boiler is different and the installation will vary between the different types of boilers. With connections to the pumps, cold water mains, pipes to radiators and water outlets. Sometimes this may be connected with hot and cold water storage tanks. 

How much does it cost to replace an existing boiler?

This depends on the type of boiler you want or may already have, you are looking for around £3,000-£5,000 for a back boiler to a combi conversion. If you are swapping a combi and another combi, you may be looking at a cost of £1,400- £2,000. If the circumstances were to change due to location, the price may increase up to £3,000.

What does a boiler service consist of?

Engineers will start off by removing components of the boiler to inspect them for any damages and if they are fit for purpose, they will then clean each part and attach them back to the boiler. Some of the components include the main burner, ignition pins, heat exchanger and flue ways.

Is a broken boiler an emergency?

Make sure when you find the boiler is not working that you contact the manufacturer straight away, they can send an engineer out to look at the problem for you.

How much does air conditioning cost in the UK?

Firstly the main factors that affect the cost of air conditioning is the size of your house, typically the bigger the space the more the cost. For example, a small home office space can cost from £1,250-£3,500. Then for a double bedroom installation it can range between £1,500-£4,000.
