Bates Plumbing & Heating Services for London & Essex


Dont wait until Winter to check your Central Heating

Bates Heating and Plumbing, a CORGI registered plumbing and heating installation company covering London and Essex, has issued an autumn warning to all homeowners with central heating systems.

With September marking the end of summer and the onset of autumn, it won't be long before householders start to switch on their heating systems. But if they leave it until the colder weather draws in to test run their systems then find they are not in full working order, they could be in for the long haul whilst waiting for an engineer to call to fix the problem.

Ivor Bates, director of seven year-established Bates Heating, wants everyone to test run their central heating systems now whilst they still have a chance of getting an engineer out in a minimum time frame should they encounter problems.

Ivor says: 'You would be surprised by the number of calls we get come October or November. As soon as those first frosts of winter bite, we are inundated with requests for central heating repairs and new installations. Naturally, all the calls are urgent as people are suffering without their heating as the winter chills take hold. If only homeowners would take the time to test their systems earlier in the autumn then we could get out to them sooner when it's still relatively warm and the matter is not so urgent.'

Bates Heating and Plumbing Limited has been carrying out central heating installations since 2000. They offer a courteous and reliable service and the fully qualified team carries all the latest testing equipment so that they have a better chance of diagnosing problems immediately.

On average, Bates engineers fix 85% of problems on the first visit.

Any homeowner in Essex, London or Docklands that needs a new central heating system will benefit from Bates Heating's no-obligation quotation service. Visits are made at a time convenient for the customerthen this is followed up by a written estimate and honest timescale for the completion of the work.
