Get your heating and hot water back in action


Many jump to the conclusion that a new boiler is required when their old one won't fire up. Your heating and hot water are dependent on that boiler working and when it goes, we are never prepared. We have access to thousands of spares for every make and model through our trade accounts therefore can get you back up and running as quickly as the very next day!

With our honest and personal approach, and a business built on recommendation since 1985 we assure you that we never up-sell when we don't need to. Favouring a boiler repair where possible, to allow you some breathing space and time to gather quotes for a replacement at a later stage. 

Affordable Boiler Diagnoses Fee @ £55

We keep our diagnoses fee affordable at just £55. Boilers that are fixed within the first hour, will incur no additional charge (excluding parts).

Boilers that are diagnosed but not fixed within this hour and additional parts for repair are required, we provide you with a written quotation for the repair work necessary allowing you to decide if or when the repair work takes place.

We follow a strict, no fix, no fee rule. You are only charged for the parts & labour that got your boiler back up and running. For example, if we change a fan (£200) that takes 2 hours (£110) but find this not to solve the problem. You are not charged. We then replace the printed circuit board (£350), that takes 2 hours (£110), you are only charged £460 - and not the additional £310. 

Please be aware that boilers can hold multiple faults (that cannot always be checked / diagnosed until one part is changed) and multiple parts may be required to complete the repair.

Example Breakdown

On an old Worcester 28i JNR (G.C  47 311 70) there is a water pressure switch. That pressure switch is to prove there is sufficient pressure in the boiler for it to operate correctly. If this switch does not prove, (the board is being told there is not enough pressure, even though the gauge shows there is), the boiler will not continue to ignition stage. We have two possible issues here. Either the pressure switch no longer picking up pressure, or the pressure gauge is stuck at 1bar even though there is 0bar of pressure. For arguments sake, the pressure switch is at fault and gets changed and the boiler now continues to ignition. The boiler fires, however loses its flame shortly after. Now pointing a fault to the flame rectification lead or flame detection electrode.
