Every year it’s the same. The cold snap starts, homeowners make a beeline for their thermostats (which have been turned down to 0° for months), only to be faced with an error message when they try to crank up the heating. Cue frantic calls to plumbers up and down the country – just at the time when most are fully booked and unable to respond immediately.
There is, however, a solution.
At City Plumbing, we’re finding that more and more plumbers, installers and heating engineers are getting around this perennial problem by using the slower summer months to ensure their customers are ready for Boiler Switch On Day, which is on 16 October this year.

By letting customers know that summer is the perfect time for system MOT (boiler checks, whole system flushing, CO alarm fitting, insulation, etc), it’s possible to spread the work and avoid a bottleneck in autumn.
It also means customers aren’t left sitting in the freezing cold while their systems are repaired.
For that strategy to work as smoothly as possible, it’s essential to have access to a great supplier, one that makes it easy to obtain quality products and ensures the availability of necessary parts and materials.
