All our engineers at Peter Brown Heating & Plumbing are approved by the Gas Safe Register, the UK’s official registration body designed to protect the public against unqualified engineers and unsafe gas work. How much does a boiler repair cost? We’re much more affordable than the big national companies. We charge just £50.00 + VAT (£60) for the first 15 minutes that we’re at your home and £24.00 + VAT (£28.80) for every 15 minutes after that. If we need to buy parts in, that will cost extra. Please do remember though that we’re here to solve your problem and not create new ones for you. We’ll aim to make sure that you’re one of the 70% of our customers whose boiler repair is completed within 15 minutes. Would it be worth getting a new boiler instead of a boiler repair? Sometimes, it’s not worth getting a boiler repaired, particularly if it’s over 15 years old. Energy efficiency and product reliability has come on a long way in recent years and if your machine was manufactured in the previous decade, you’re probably no longer making savings on your gas bills that you should expect. When we’re repairing your boiler, make sure to ask your boiler repairing expert to tell head office that you’re interested in a quote for a new boiler. One of our experienced installers will visit your home on a day and at a time of your choosing to give you their expert help and advice. We don’t employ salesmen so you won’t be put under pressure to buy – all we’ll do is leave you with a quote and our recommendation. Remember, we manage to fix 70% of our customers’ boilers on our first and only visit within the first 15 minutes of our visit. We work with all types of boilers from all UK manufacturers.

Cover bare floorboards. Floors account for as much as 10% of heat loss if they’re not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation (NEF). Carpets came into being for a reason, says Potter. Those with wooden flooring have to deal with heat loss. Rugs and blankets can help mitigate this and have the added bonus of keeping your feet warm. “Sometimes it’s just the psychological element,” says Potter. But if there are cracks or gaps in the flooring it’s a good idea to squirt some filler into them, advises the NEF. “Floorboards and skirting boards can contract, expand or move slightly with everyday use, so you should use a filler that can tolerate movement,” suggests the NEF. These are usually silicone-based.
Upgrade heating controls: Smart thermostat imageRoom thermostats allow households to set and maintain the temperature at home. A programmer sets the heating to turn on and off at certain times of the day to suit your lifestyle. Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) let householders control the temperature of each radiator. Cost: Costs can vary significantly due to the variety of heating systems types and sizes and controls available. We recommended comparing quotes from professional installers. Saving: Installing and using a full set of heating controls means that you can be warm exactly when and where you want in your home. You could also save around £80 a year if you currently don’t have any of these heating controls.

Boilers, like people, like to be looked after. Give yours an annual boiler service and it will last longer and work more efficiently – if you don’t, it could cost you money. Don’t forget, it’s vital that you use a Gas Safe Registered Engineer. You won’t be surprised to learn that lots of warmth escapes from your home through the windows. If you’ve got curtains, close them before darkness hits or while you’re out of the house and keep that lovely heat where it should be – inside. Better still, get yourself a pair of thermal curtains.
