In recent years, the weather in Britain has become increasingly changeable and unpredictable. Many of us still remember long, harsh winters followed by glorious summers. However, nowadays we tend to experience longer periods of mild, warmer weather throughout the year, with sudden cold snaps every now and then. It is therefore essential to have a central heating system you can rely on, when the temperature suddenly drops without warning.
The heating engineers at Virtue Heating & Plumbing Ltd have over 80 years of combined experience performing central heating repairs, installations and upgrades in Horley, Redhill, Reigate and the wider Surrey area.
We therefore do whatever it takes to ensure that your system can cope with your heating needs.
If your central heating system lacks efficiency, we offer a wide range of services to resolve the issue.
Some of these include:
If you live in Horley, Redhill, Reigate or the surrounding areas, our expert engineers recommend you have your central heating system serviced once every 12 months. This will help to ensure that it functions efficiently for longer, whilst enabling us to detect minor issues before they develop into more serious faults. Regular servicing may avoid the need for costly central heating repairs and could save you money on your energy bills.
Sometimes the issue is not necessarily a fault with your boiler or central heating control unit. If your radiators are failing to warm up at all or you detect cold spots, this could be due to several issues. Trapped air is one of the most common causes for inefficient heating in homes around Horley, Redhill and Reigate. This is something our heating engineers can often resolve by simply bleeding your radiators. We can also replace radiator valves, if necessary, and even carry out Powerflushing for systems clogged with debris and sludge.
We undertake minor central heating repairs during servicing, to keep systems ticking over. However, we also have the knowledge and skill to fix more complicated issues around Horley, Redhill and Reigate. This can include boiler issues, leaking gas and water pipes, and faulty thermostats. Although we can usually fix most faults, if your central heating system is old and outdated, we may not be able to source replacement parts from the manufacturer. In such cases, you might require a new system.
We hold both NICEIC approval and Gas Safe registration. This enables us to perform a wide range of general plumbing and heating services to the highest possible standards of safety and workmanship. Central heating repairs and installations are no different. So, whether you want a smart heating system or simply something more reliable than your current installation, we supply and fit a variety of products to suit your needs and budget.
