We had a boiler replacement carried out by Rob and Jonny. The result is fantastic, they house as clean and tidy after the job as it was before, and they were extremely professional. I highly recommend them.

Contract Heating has serviced my gas boiler for12/15 years and over last few years kept it going despite its age. Decided would replace it before winter set in and got 3 quotes, surprised to find Contract Heating marginally, least expensive of the three. Discussed details with supervisor Craig and got all the answers I needed, accepted quote and within 7 days new boiler delivered and installed including arranging sub-contractor.
Alan and Johnnie arrived as arranged, took ownership of the job and I was comfortable to leave them to get on with it. Estimate had been one and half days but completed in one. New boiler doing its job, installation flawless, guys punctual, smart, cleaned up fully after they had finished, all waste and old boiler removed that afternoon.
Could not fault Alan and Johnnie in any way and good back-up from Craig, and Jodie in the office. Would recommend them without hesitation.

This company serviced my boiler in August 2020 when it was still difficult to get this type of work done due to covud restrictions. I used them again this August 2021 and plan to continue to do this. They are efficient, contactable, professional, friendly, dependable and great value for the service they provide. Very happy with this vompany.

I’ve been using Contract Heating for over a decade; both for our own home and our rental property, and I have always been happy with their work. For this job, Eric and his team re-routed some gas piping and replaced the broken heat exchanger on our home boiler. All the work was done within 4 hours to a high standard with no mess and no fuss. The quote was also the lowest out of 3 reputable companies we approached for an estimate. Highly recommended.

Rob and Lewis did a first class job installing my new radiators and went to a lot of trouble and effort to get the new pipework under the floor. They are such a professional, hardworking and cheerful couple of guys who were a pleasure to have working in my property and are a credit to their company.
Well done guys :)

Torquil and Leanne in the office were also most helpful during the booking in process.

Thank you, Contract Heating, for yet another job well done.

We replaced our boiler. The staff were patient and very helpful. As the boiler is just installed, I cannot really comment on the quality of the boiler or its value for money but the quality and value of the company’s service is very good.

First heard of Contract Heating in 2008 and used them until I moved away in 2020. They are reliable, skilful and courteous. Their prices are always fair and the work is first class. They conserved my ageing Worcester boiler in an older property and upgraded the heating system making it more sensitive and responsive. Their one-off non-contractual charging system for annual services makes them very competitive.

Replacement boiler install, removal of old boiler.
Friendly, efficient and hard working, with their emphasis on getting hot water restored by end of the first day - achieved to our great relief !

Neat install, with directions given on how to use boiler and control from app on my phone.

Very happy with the results.

I have used Contract Heating for some years for boiler maintenance and have always found them to be quick, friendly and efficient.
They may not be the cheapest around but "you gets what you pays for" – and they are worth it !

Brian attended my flat today and carried out a service of my gas boiler. He arrived on time and was very efficient, checking the gas main and testing all the radiators after the boiler had been serviced. I would thoroughly recommend Contract Heating.

I have been using Contract Heating for many years for the provision and servicing of my gas boilers. They have always been highly efficient, extremely helpful and very friendly when dealing with my requirements. Recently, I had a new Ariston boiler installed. It was done in a day by Rob and Mark and was followed up, at my request, by two visits from Craig who adjusted and explained its settings and operation to its somewhat confused new owner!! The ladies in the office have also been extremely pleasant and helpful when I have called. Thank you very much.

We have used Contract Heating Ltd to service our boiler in our house for the last 3-4 years. We are now remodelling our kitchen and we employed Contract Heating to renew our boiler and adjust the pipework to relocate the new boiler in a new position in the kitchen along with a new radiator . They undertook all the works in a very professional manner. The installation team for our new boiler was led by Rob Hamilton, and he had Mark and Austin working with him. They were all polite, Covid respectful and their standard of work was excellent. They were in our house for 3 days and always kept their work area clean and tidy. Every day they cleaned up after them and turned up every day at the time they said they would. I have had a similar positive experience during the three years of servicing our old boiler. I have got to know a few of the Contract Heating engineers over the last few years and it is always to good to hear reports from them about the high regard they have for Contract Heating as a company. I would recommend Contract Heating unreservedly.

Short version - If you are a small scale private landlord (I have <10 flats) you are not the kind of customer ContractHeating want or will look after these days.

Longer version - I used their landlord services for about 10 years and they used to be fine but I have got more and more unhappy with their service as they have grown. Boiler service contracts - as soon as you have one year where it costs them more than your annual premium they do not renew. DD debits continued to be taken even when service contract cancelled BY THEM. Their quotes for new boilers are not competitive in my experience. I did have them replace one and it was a nightmare with them having to come back several times because of issues with the flue siting, eventually resulting in me having to have the boiler relocated. Recent electrical fault is final straw, fault not even identified and unnecessary, unrelated work was done and then quoted another day's investigative work being required which could not be scheduled by them for approx 2 weeks, meantime tenants with no power. Another electrical firm identified the problem in 5 minutes and fixed it in about 30 mins on a same day call out. ContractHeating also wanted to charge me for an EICR which reported a fail due to the fault I called them out for and they did not fix! When I complained ContractHeating boss Pat said he was happy with his guy's work, but they would not charge me for that visit. Then when the next routine safety check came up on another flat a few weeks later he asked did I still want to work with them. I said OK, because I had not looked at alternatives - this stuff is just a chore. Then he came back and said well they would rather not continue our relationship. Why didn't he just say that in the first place? So agreed that will I take my business elsewhere, and having looked at alternatives there are certainly several that offer better value for money on the face of it, and the recent service standards from ContractHeating can't be hard to beat.

Moderator Response
Business Response: This complaint has come about following a disagreement relating to electrical work that included an EICR which we carried out for the customer. The EICR had recommended improvement as the plastic consumer unit was installed on the only escape route from the property and it had a crack in the outer casing which is to be classified as potentially dangerous.
I provided evidence from an external source to support the classification that we had used but the other contractor’s opinion (“since nothing is exposed and the crack is not such that the cover is likely to fall off/fall apart, he doesn't see it as a significant risk, especially if a bit of glue or tape was applied.”) was considered to be more relevant than ours, and therefore we were not to be paid for the EICR we had carried out. I felt the criticism we received relating to this work had been unjustified and that our advice had been unfairly ignored in preference of that given by another contractor. Unable to reach agreement on this I made no charge for the work we had carried out.
The customer did want us to proceed with other work but not EICRs and indicated this was because we had not done a good job. There are jobs that do go wrong and there are times when we make refunds and rectify mistakes, but it is difficult to move forward with a working relationship when you are receiving criticism and cannot agree that what you have done was incorrect. I explained this to the customer and he asked us to close his existing service contracts and refund in full unless works had been carried out. Although this would not be the usual terms for cancellation we did this in order to bring things to a close as amicably as possible.
In summary, this customer has been a customer of ours for 10 years and it is not a good outcome for us that the relationship has come to an end in this way. We have tried to do this as amicably as possible all in the hope that we could move on without any further ill feeling. Unfortunately this review would suggest that we were unable to achieve that and I can now only hope that on reading this response the customer will consider this from our perspective, and at some point accept that as a contractor the position we were placed in was not conducive to a good working relationship moving forward.

Removal of old gas central heating boiler and installation of a new one. The people working with this company were all very professional, communicative and helpful. This includes the staff answering the telephone, the engineers and the joiner. They turned-up when they said they would, kept me informed about progress and next steps, and they were careful about tidiness. The initial cost estimate provided was based on a thorough on-site survey and conversation. The final cost was just below the estimate. In summary, very professional and very reliable.
