How to find reputable South London heating services

South London Heating Services

https://uk.business.trustpilot.com/If you live in South London, the chances are that at some time you will need someone offering South London heating services. There are of course many plumbers to choose from and you can find them online or in the local phone directory. Finding lots to choose from isn’t a problem, but finding someone good that you can rely on is a different matter.

Most people use the web to find goods and suppliers these days, because it is so convenient. Not only that but you can take a look at plumbers websites and glean a little more information by browsing and comparing. The problem of course is doesn’t necessarily follow that having a good website means that the website owner is a good supplier, or in this case, a good provider of South London heating services.

Beware of bogus South London heating services providers

You have to bear in mind that anyone advertising their own services is always going to be blowing their own trumpet. Even customer reviews can be falsified unless they are posted via something like Trustpilot. So how can you tell that you’re on the website of someone who provides top South London heating services?

The best way of determining if you’ve found a genuinely good plumbing and heating service company is to check their credentials in terms of professional qualifications and affiliations. For example, we here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating are Gas Safe registered.

Gas Safe registry – a good indicator of quality and reliability

The Gas Safe registry is one of the UKs most important reference points. If a company or an individual is listed on the registry, you know they are trustworthy and fully competent. However, its not enough to simply believe the business is registered just because it says so on the website or on a business card. There are plenty of unscrupulous individuals who will falsely claim to be approved. You need to actually check out their registration number. For example, our registration number at CW Services is 233012. Please feel free to check it out.

Other affiliations to check out

Gas Safe registry approval isn’t the only measure of a South London heating services provider’s quality and reliability. You can also check out if they belong to any other professional associations like we do here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating. As well as being Gas Safe registered, we are also CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering) approved; an association that rigorously checks out its members credentials.

Call CW Services and you won’t be disappointed

If you come across a South London heating services provider who can claim all of these qualifications and affiliations, the chances are that you have found yourself a top plumber, but if in doubt, all you have to do is call Colin White at CW Services on 020 7733 6812 or 07949 095 184 and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Do you need a London boiler breakdown repair specialist?

London boiler breakdown repair

If you need a London boiler breakdown repair specialist, you have come to the right place. We are CW Services Plumbing and Heating, and repairing hot water boilers in the London area is one of our specialities.

People take their boilers for granted

We all tend to take our boilers for granted. We are used to turning the tap on and getting hot water more or less on demand. So, it comes as something of a rude shock when you turn the tap on and all you get is cold water, or you turn the central heating on and the radiators remain stubbornly cold.

If it’s spring, summer or autumn, needing a London boiler breakdown repair specialist is not much more than an inconvenience. But in the winter, when temperatures drop, it becomes an urgent problem.

Whether it’s a routine problem or an emergency, we here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating can respond. We offer a 24/7/365 emergency call out service.

In addition, we can even repair large commercial boilers up to 70kW.

Gas safe registered

Don’t forget that if your boiler is gas-fired, you must only employ a plumber or engineer who is Gas Safe registered – even if it is only for a repair. Our London boiler breakdown repair service is fully registered, both as a company and as individuals.

When someone calls to carry out a repair, check out their credentials before you allow them to do any work. A visual check is not really good enough. There are plenty of rogue traders around with authentic looking, bogus passes. Before you let the engineer in, take his/her card and check it against the Gas Safer registered website. It will only take a moment, and any genuine plumber of engineer worth their salt will not mind the short wait.
