London is a big city and Hammersmith is a big area. Both have a huge number of plumbers and heating engineers operating inside them. This makes it harder to find a suitable tradesman for annual boiler servicing, or for domestic or commercial boiler repairs. How about work on central or underfloor heating systems? It’s always good to have options but when you have so many choices, how do you decide who to call?
Here, Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd talks about its role as a trusted company of contractors for the Hammersmith area.
Naturally, we want to throw our own hat into the ring and to make you a customer, but we also want you to be happy in your choice of plumbers and heating engineers. We are specialists in boiler servicing, and in domestic and commercial boiler repairs, but we also have experience in central heating, underfloor heating, renewables and more.
If you think we might be the team for you, please call us on 020 8673 9944.
The most important question you can ask of any heating engineer is if they have Gas Safe registration. Remember that plumbers don’t need to have registration, but they can’t legally perform boiler servicing in Hammersmith, or domestic or commercial boiler repairs, without it. Choosing an unregistered tradesman for work on boilers, on central heating and on wet underfloor heating systems risks your own safety and that of anybody else who uses your property.
Low-end boiler servicing and repairs can lead to fires, carbon monoxide leaks and even explosions. Ask heating engineers off the bat if they have Gas Safe registration and, should you have any doubts, demand proof or choose a different tradesman.
Some plumbers and heating engineers in the Hammersmith area go beyond the basic requirements, joining trade associations that offer specialist training, or which demand minimum standards for their members to meet. There are many different trade associations for our sector but Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd is a member of one of the best; the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE).
CIPHE and Gas Safe accreditation combined is your guarantee of compliant boiler servicing or boiler installation work.
If any plumber or heating engineer in Hammersmith has this level of accreditation, it’s a good sign that you can use them for domestic or commercial boiler repairs, or for work on central or underfloor heating systems, with confidence. Member companies always deliver excellent standards of workmanship.
You may have heard of an approved installer. This means that a company, often a manufacturer, trusts plumbers or heating engineers enough to back their workmanship. This seal of approval is good news for home and business owners in Hammersmith. When the contractor performs any type of approved boiler servicing, or approved domestic or commercial boiler repairs, the manufacturer backs that contractor’s workmanship, and its own products, with an extended warranty.
The longest warranties usually come with boiler installations, which we tie in with central or underfloor heating upgrades.
New boiler warranties last for up to 10 years, but this is dependent on the manufacturer, their brand and the model. Our plumbers and heating engineers have approval to work on Baxi, Vaillant and Vokera boilers.
Not all plumbers and heating engineers in the Hammersmith area offer the same services. We’ve spoken a lot here about domestic boiler servicing, commercial boiler repairs and underfloor heating, but these are just a small representation of the services we have to offer you. Boiler installations, for example, make up a sizeable percentage of our business and we can fit appliances from all major manufacturers.
But we are also here for the finer details. Take renewables as an example. This refers to energy sources that don’t deplete through continued use. Renewables is a specialist area for Ecoheat Plumbing Ltd, one that we optimise with the supply and fitting of air-source heat pumps.
