Central heating repair

Plumbing prices for central heating repair

Central heating nearly always breaks down when we most need it. Why? Well because its need most at when we are using it the most, that is in Winter. Try to remember to get your boiler and central heating checked out in off peak periods, rather than trying to get a plumber to come round on Christmas Eve. Been there, done that, somehow repaired boiler myself and didn't blow up house?! Stupid...These prices are for repairing the central heating and include any parts required and labour rates unless stated.
