Quality of workmanship is all important

Why are we so insistent that you should get a quote from us? It is because we know that our rates are very competitive. But that’s not all. Lots of plumbers can claim to charge competitive rates. But what about the quality of the work that they carry out?

The one thing you can be sure of is that is you choose CW Services for your gas appliance installation, not only will you pay a competitive rate, you will get a top-quality job. Yes, you can always find someone cheaper. But cheaper is not necessarily better. In many instances, it means that whoever is carrying out the work will be cutting corners.

Check for Gas Safe registration and CIPHE membership

When you compile your list of plumbers to approach, as well as being Gas Safe registered, you should also look to see what other professional qualifications they hold. At CW Services Plumbing and Heating for example, not only are we Gas Safe registered, we are also CIPHE approved.

CIPHE stands for Chartered Institute of Plumbing Heating Engineering. Members of this organisation have to achieve a standard of excellence to be listed, so any plumbing company you come across who have a current CIPHE registration should provide top quality workmanship.

Where to find top plumbing services in South London

If you are looking for plumbing services in South London you will find a large number of companies to choose from. The problem of course to sorting out the wheat from the chaff.

Plumbing is course a fundamental service. It lies at the heart of cooking, cleaning, heating and waste disposal; so, when something goes wrong with it, it needs fixing quickly. That is why it is so important to use someone that provides top plumbing services in London, or indeed wherever it may be that you happen to live – and therein lies the rub. How can you find the best?

The worst thing you can do is try blind luck. If you pick up the local trade directory (Yellow Pages, Thomson Local, etc) and just stick a pin in the list of plumbers you’ll find there, you could end up in trouble.

How to find top plumbing services in South London

Unfortunately, plumbing as a trade has its fair share of “cowboys.” These are people who will do a poor job and charge you a small fortune only for you to find later that the work they have carried out needs redoing properly.

A list of names tells you nothing other than what the plumbing companies are called. If you cool at those plumbers who have taken out box advert, it will at least tell you something about them. The problem is though – can you believe what you read?

The next best thing to try when attempting to track down someone that provides top plumbing services in South London, is to search the web. It’s how most people find the things they are looking for. Most plumbers worth their salt will have a website. But that in itself isn’t enough.

Knowing what to look for

Advertising is all about blowing your own trumpet. Let’s face it, no-one is going to sell themselves short. It all comes down to knowing what to look for when you do check out a plumber’s website.

Your first consideration should be about whether the work you need doing affects a gas supply in any way. If it does then you must find a plumber who is Gas Safe registered. One tip to take on board is to check out the registration. It’s all too easy to pretend to be registered, and fake IDs can look totally authentic.

Checking out the plumber’s registrations

The best thing to do is to visit the Gas Safe website. Then you can enter the plumber’s registration number and see if it is indeed recognised and current.

CW Services Plumbing and Heating are renowned for providing top plumbing services South London. Not only are we Gas Safe registered, we are also G3 approved for working pressurised plumbing systems (such as Megaflo systems), and we are CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering).

Time for a new boiler installation in London?

Boilers don’t last forever. It means that at some time in your life you will probably be faced with having to have a new boiler installation in London or wherever else you might live. If you live in London, CW Services Plumbing and Heating cannot be beaten for top quality work at a competitive price.

Take prompt action to avoid a complete boiler breakdown

If your boiler is making weird noises, it could be a sign that it is on the way out. The best thing to do is to take immediate action and get it checked out by a professional plumber. The last thing you want to happen is that your boiler breaks down altogether. It will leave you without hot water and maybe heating, if it drives your central heating system too.

The benefits of a new boiler installation in London

If you do need a new boiler there are several benefits that a new boiler installation in London will give you. The first one is reliability. Most reputable new boilers come with a guarantee. Also, if you use us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating to do the work, that too will be guaranteed for 12-months.

The other benefit is from a cost perspective. Yes, a new boiler will cost you money, but you could well find that your operating costs come down. If for example, your old boiler was running inefficiently, (say the element has become furred-up) your heating bills would have been higher than they should have been.

Another thing is that most good quality boilers today are well insulated. This means that any hot water in them stays warmer for longer.

One more benefit you could enjoy from a new boiler installation in London is water pressure. If you suffer from low pressure through some of your taps, you could correct this. You can have the plumber install a water pum. Alternatively, you might like to consider installing an unvented boiler.

We install all types of boilers

One of the best-unvented cylinders on the market today is made by Megaflo. CW Services Plumbing and Heating, are not only Gas Safe registered, we are also G3 qualified. This means we are approved to install pressurised systems.

As well as being able to help you with a new boiler installation in London, we also do boiler repairs and servicing. We also handle all types of boilers: unvented, vented, combi, biomass, gas or electric.

Regular servicing prolongs a boiler’s life

Regular servicing is of course especially important if you have a gas fired boiler installed. It will prolong your boiler’s working life and will help you to ensure that your boiler operates efficiently. This will not only help you to keep your heating bills down. It will also prevent your boiler from emitting poisonous carbon monoxide. Using a Gas Safe approved plumber like CW Services is however essential to guarantee your safety.

Noisy boiler? – Find a good London boiler repair service

If you have an efficient boiler that is well maintained, it shouldn’t be making any noise. If it is, it is probably an indication that something is wrong. It may well mean that you need to find a plumber like CW Services Plumbing and Heating who offer a London boiler repair service

A noisy boiler may carry on working for a while. But in all likelihood, it is a sign that it is going to fail at some point in the not too distant future. The types of noises that boilers make vary quite a lot. To help, we are going to describe the most common ones and give you an indication of what could be causing them.

Banging and “clunking” noises

When you hear banging and clunking noises coming out of your boiler, it is an indication that there is a build-up of limestone on the boilers heat exchanger. The noises are referred to as “kettling” noises in the plumbing trade, and you need to take notice of them.

These noises occur because the build-up of limestone (sometimes referred to as fur) interferes with the flow of water. If not addressed and it is allowed to accumulate over time, it will create a blockage which causes the water to boil, steam and expand.

Modern boilers today are fitted with what are known as pressure relief valves. If steam is building up inside, the relief valve will let it out and thus stop the boiler from exploding. In the meantime, however, the efficiency of your boiler will be significantly impaired, causing further damage in the long run. You can, of course, prevent this by organising a London boiler repair with someone like CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

Whistling noises

Whistling noises can also be an indication of “kettling,” but they can also be caused by air becoming trapped in the water pipes. You can try and release any trapped air in a central heating system by bleeding the radiators. If the air is trapped inside the boiler, however, you will then have to have a London boiler repair carried out.

Gurgling type noises

If you have a gas-fired boiler, gurgling noises can be caused by trapped air. They can indicate a blockage or a build-up of sediment. It could also mean that your condensation pipe has become frozen. This can be cured by applying a hot water bottle, but you should only attempt to do so if you know what you are doing. If you don’t, organise that London boiler repair.

Call the top London boiler repair specialists – CW Services Plumbing and Heating

According to recent research, approximately one in every ten boilers are unsafe. So, if you do detect any noises, you should take action and book a London boiler repair. Don’t forget, however, if you have a gas-fired boiler; you must only use a Gas Safe registered plumber; someone like us here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating.

We also offer a 24/7/365 emergency call-out service. Whether it is an emergency or not, all you have to do to book your London boiler repair is call us on 020 7733 6812 or 07949 095 184.
