Domestic & Light
Carmen Plumbing & Heating offer services to homebuyers, homeowners
and landlords. We also undertake plumbing and heating installations
on light commercial premises such as restaurants, doctors’ or dentists’ surgeries
and on sites requiring staff welfare facilities such as showers or hand-washing.
Servicing from £75
Your boiler should be serviced
annually, by a qualified engineer, whether it is a Natural Gas, LPG
or Oil-fired boiler. Regular servicing
ensures that your boiler runs efficiently, saving you money. Additionally,
the engineer may identify minor problems during the service which can
be easily remedied before damage is caused. If not picked up,
minor problems could lead to irreparable breakdown of your boiler. Most
importantly, regular servicing ensures the safety of your boiler, and
thus the safety of your family or other residents of the property.
Boiler installation from £1400
The government has introduced new legislation
which means that from 1st April 2005, in normal circumstances when
you plan to install a new Natural Gas or LPG boiler, or replace
an existing one, you will need a condensing boiler to meet the higher
standards for energy efficiency. The
new legislation will apply to oil-fired boilers from 1st April 2007.
Condensing boilers are not ‘new technology’. They
have been around for over fifteen years, and we have experience of
installing them for the same amount of time. Carmen Plumbing & Heating
will only recommend boilers which we believe meet the highest standards
of reliability and maintainability.
Prices for the installation or
replacement of a central heating boiler can vary greatly depending
on whether a boiler is currently installed, whether you wish to change
the location of the boiler, the size of your house, whether you wish
to add or remove radiators from the system, whether you wish to convert
from stored hot water to a combination boiler and many other factors. Call us to discuss your requirements,
and Carmen Plumbing & Heating will arrange to survey your property
and provide a detailed quotation for all the options available to you,
at no charge.
Certificates from £60
If you own
a property which you let out, or if you accommodate tenants or paying
guests in your own home, you must hold a current Landlord’s
Certificate. This certifies that all gas appliances in the property
are safe. See: http://www.trustcorgi.com/obligations/obligations.htmx.
Reports from £85
Are you thinking of buying a new home? A Carmen Plumbing & Heating
Homebuyer’s report will give you an honest appraisal of the
condition of the plumbing and heating installation in any property
in which you are interested. Our engineer will test all gas
appliances for safety, and issue you with a Landlord’s Certificate
in confirmation of this test. More importantly the written report
will give you an accurate assessment of the condition of the existing
systems, their suitability for the type of property and where appropriate
a ball park estimate for any necessary repairs or improvements.
cases, an accurate assessment of the condition of the plumbing and
heating installation may enable you to renegotiate the price of your
Price for a Homebuyer’s
Report is dependant on the size of the property, and the number, type
and age of gas appliances and water systems installed
/ hob installation from £85
Prices will vary if a gas supply has to be
installed from the meter.
If you do not currently have a gas supply
to your property, you need first to contact your local gas supplier. For
information on gas suppliers for your area, see: http://www.energywatch.org.uk/
fire installation from £85
Prices depend on whether
there is an existing flue of a suitable type, in good condition, and
whether there is an existing safe and suitable gas supply.
Powerflush from £400
Powerflushing is recommended when a new boiler is installed to clean
out the pipework and radiators and prevent accumulated sludge from
damaging your new boiler. Powerflushing in itself can also improve
the efficiency of a badly clogged system, but it cannot transform an
elderly or badly installed system into a state-of-the-art one!
Water Filters and Water Softeners from £450
Plumbing & Heating can advise on and install the best type of
water softener or filter for your requirements. Call us on 01223
