Gas central heating repairs
We receive a huge increase in repairs being reported for gas central heating. Our partners, Liberty Gas, employ additional engineers in an attempt to meet our response times. However, due to the sheer volume of repairs it is difficult to keep up with the demand. Where possible Liberty will attend within 1 day but adverse weather has an effect on these response times. Please be assured that we are dealing with all your requests as urgent and Liberty will endeavour to reach you as soon as possible.
We also have some helpful advice should your boiler condensate pipe freeze in the winter months.

Please be assured that following your initial call the tradesman will be despatched to you as soon as possible and you should not need to make a further call. Your patience would be greatly appreciated during these busy periods.
