coronavirus update

After the announcement of the national roadmap on gradually easing coronavirus restrictions, we are currently looking at the detail of the plan and working out when it will be appropriate to reintroduce services such as non-essential repairs. We’ll provide a detailed update as soon as possible.

winter warmers: what to do if your heating is not working

If your heating is not working, ask yourself:

  • Is the electricity supply on?
  • Is the timer set properly?
  • Is the thermostat turned up high enough?

Our repairs team have a few simple checks you can carry out on your boiler to resolve any issues.


If your system is still not working, contact our repairs service; and in the meantime:

  • Close all internal doors to minimise heat loss and movement of warm air around the home
  • Draw your curtains and blinds
  • Wear extra clothing
  • Have plenty hot meals and drinks
  • Be a good neighbour and check on the elderly and vulnerable.
