Richard is an advocate of energy efficient heating solutions and will work with you to determine the best option for your home.

This may be as small as the installation of thermostatic radiator valves or as large as a boiler and cylinder replacement.

Key principles:

– you should only pay for heat that benefits you (controls are key)
– your heating should work around your plans and not the other way around
– if good quality components are installed and maintained you will have fewer problems
