The number of callouts for boiler-related problems increased by 72 percent from the first week of September to the first week of October, the AA recently reported.

As the cold weather starts to hit, millions of us are firing up our heating, so it follows that callouts historically increase at the start of winter and then again when temperatures really start to tumble.

Those of you who need to turn to tradespeople when your radiators don’t heat up evenly or correctly, or when you spot an ominous leak, are risking making things worse by not using qualified or registered plumbers.  Research shows that around two-thirds of people choose a plumber on cost alone, without worrying if they are registered with an approved contractors’ scheme or have any professional credentials. 

Rectifying botched jobs is costing us dear with Britons estimated to have paid up to £2.6 billion to put things right.

If you need a plumber this winter, make sure you follow our service creed:
•    Fix it once...
•    Fix it right...
•    Fix it forever...
•    Fix it now!
