Breaking News! We’re Now Also Operating in Cornwall!
We’re now offering our full suite of plumbing and heating services in Cornwall, and have opened a new office in Bodmin, with engineers servicing the whole of the county.
The expansion comes in our 42nd year, and sees us welcoming several new members of our team, and we continue to look for talent to work for us in the area. Those interested in applying can find out more here.
Free Energy Efficiency Audit
To celebrate, and support the local community, we are offering all home (residential and holiday) business and caravan owners a free Energy Efficiency Audit coupled with expert advice on how to improve ratings, decrease carbon output and save money.
The free audit will comprise checking the rating of appliances, the efficiency of how the heating system is controlled as well as the proficiency of a property’s radiators or other heat emitters. The specialist engineer will then be able to offer information and bespoke guidance on a number of areas, from lifestyle changes and modulating energy usage, to the benefits that could be achieved with a new boiler or smart controls.
Furthermore, those interested in renewable solutions can learn more about the process required in assessing their building’s suitability – if the insulation, draft proofing and heat emitters aren’t of an excellent standard, it’s likely a person’s energy bill would increase; this is on top of Britain’s spiralling energy prices.
Saving the People of Cornwall Money This Winter
The energy price cap increased to £1,971 on April 1 but will rise again in October and is expected to hit £2,800, meaning households will pay 42 pence more than do they currently do.
Managing Director of Custom Heat, Lincoln Smith, is concerned about the significant impact the price cap increase will have on families and SMEs, especially if their boiler is effectively burning money. Lincoln said: “People were worried about the increase in energy costs in April and this winter is already concern, with the most recent reports saying the energy price cap is expected to rise in October by a further 51 per cent. My advice is to review your supplier, appliance energy efficiency and control set up right now so you’re armed with key information and can plan to make changes before this year’s cold snap hits.
We’ve been putting the customer first for over 40-years so to mark Custom Heat’s expansion out of the Midlands for the first time and into Cornwall, I wanted to help our new prospective home and business customers in the area to be as prepared as they can be this winter. A new boiler isn’t the only answer, smart controls and modulating usage can make a big difference; by coming out to people’s homes and businesses to assess their heating solution’s energy efficiency, I hope we can save the people of Cornwall some money this winter.
Any business or rental property owner can also request a free certificate, which they can display to show their high level of energy efficiency.
