The individual aspects below should help you find the perfect company for the job.
Qualifications and Experience
If there’s just one thing you check when choosing a gas engineer for a new boiler installation in Guildford, make sure they have Gas Safe registration. This is the official gas registration body for the UK. All gas and heating engineers must be on this register to work on boilers and gas appliances. Working with gas is dangerous for an unqualified or inexperienced tradesman.
Any homeowner looking for a Glow Worm, Vaillant, Viessmann or Worcester Bosch boiler installation should make Gas Safe registration a prerequisite. Other accreditation to look for is NICEIC registration.
Surrey Boiler Installations is both Gas Safe and NICEIC registered, and we are also proud members of the Surrey Trading Standards scheme.
Look for gas engineers and heating engineers who can offer the specific service you require. Surrey Boiler Installations specialises in new boilers, supported by central heating, powerflushing and underfloor heating installation services. We also undertake boiler servicing and repair work on all branded appliances.
But there is one brand in which we specialise.
We cover Guildford as proud Worcester Bosch boiler specialists. The innovation and reliability behind this particular brand make Worcester Bosch our preferred choice for any new boiler installation.
A company should be proud of its reputation, and vocal about its achievements. Good reviews speak for themselves and we actively encourage Guildford homeowners to leave feedback about our new boiler installations. Good referrals and customer recommendations are a testament to the workmanship of companies in our particular sector.
Always steer clear of gas engineers or heating engineers who seem reluctant to provide a reference.
We have a Checkatrade page and a proud 10/10 rating. Every time Surrey Boiler Installations fits a new boiler in Guildford, we keep this rating in mind and do everything possible to maintain our perfect score. Our use of Worcester Bosch boilers is a safeguard to our reputation, and a key benefit to our company and the customers we serve.
One of the best ways to cement a great reputation is to have a strong approach to customer service. We believe any good gas engineer or heating engineer should be willing to provide a high standard of service to each and every client, from the first point of contact through to the completion of a new boiler installation or a related central heating service.
This is why we provide our customers in Guildford with clear, professional advice at every stage of the job. This ensures they make the right choice when it comes to which new boiler they invest in, such as a Worcester Bosch boiler or any other branded appliance in our recommended range, and in the company that performs the installation.
If you are still struggling to find a gas engineer or heating engineer because all of the companies under consideration fulfil the criteria above, always look at a price that’s competitive but not absurdly cheap. Reputable companies will provide a quotation free of charge and without obligation, but costs will obviously fluctuate based on the type of new boiler you choose.
Some, like a new Worcester Bosch boiler, will outperform others, and this is why they might cost a little more.
Always compare quotes for boiler installations carefully. Companies in Guildford that work at ridiculously low rates often have reasons for doing so. They may not have the credentials or the experience to demand higher rates, or they may use substandard products and materials. An intermediate, competitive price is often the key to making a good decision.
