Why Are Smaller Businesses Better Than Corporate Ones?

So we all know the struggle of when we have a plumbing or heating dilemma whether to go with a small run business or a national corporate business. In my opinion i would always go for a smaller business as not only is it much more personal than a larger business and you feel you can relate.
Small businesses have many advantages over their larger competitors. Large companies often are slowed down by their size, making changes more difficult.
Small businesses can also be more innovative and try new things because they are not slowed by past experiences and accomplishments. The pace of a small company is often very fast, and this speed is frequently an advantage in getting new products or methods to their market.
Quick to Change
As the owner of a small business, I have the distinct advantage of changing my plan or tactics much faster than my larger competitors. I have the advantage of bringing my customers the best products on the market as soon as they are out.

Close to the Customer
Being close to the customer is important for me in my business, and as a small business i am able to be frequently much closer to the customer than a large one.

Lean Structure
A small business is, by nature, very lean. I have fewer employees than in a larger organization and alot fewer layers of management. With fewer employees, I have less need to lay off associates in hard times and can keep business operating more efficiently.

Customer focused
As a small business owner my main priority is making sure all work completed is to the highest standard and what you as the customer requires. With out doing this i would not have the business i have worked so hard for.

So as you can see choosing a smaller business like mine is alot more beneficial to you as the customer. Want to know more then do not hesitate to get in touch with myself

Boilers – How Efficient Is Mine?!

How do we know when we need to replace our boilers?

When is a boiler too old?

Keeping our homes warm is crucial. And with energy prices remaining high, it’s now more important than ever to think about the efficiency of your central heating boiler to ensure you’re not paying more than you have to on your energy bills.

If you heat your home with a boiler and radiators, it is likely that roughly two-thirds of your total home energy expenditure goes on the fuel used to run your central heating. The proportion of energy existing in the fuel that is used to run the boiler establishes the efficiency of the boiler. To put it another way, the higher your boiler’s efficiency, the less amount of fuel needed to create the same amount of heat in your home. Which means the less money wasted.

A step-change in boiler efficiency took place back in the 1980s, when ‘condensing’ boilers were first introduced to the market. A high efficiency condensing boiler is widely regarded as a good choice if you’re looking for an environmentally friendly and more efficient boiler, as they are able to make better use of the heat they generate from burning fuels. With a heat only boiler, some heat is wasted with hot gases released from the flue.

However, a condensing boiler captures some of the heat from these waste gases and uses it to heat water returning from your central heating system. As a result, it requires less heat from the burner and is consequently much more efficient.

As boilers age – particularly those that are not well maintained – they become less efficient. This combination of age and old technology means that an older boiler is likely to have significantly higher annual running costs, compared with a modern replacement – as much as £300 per year in a typical semi-detached home.

The all New Blue Water Conditioner

We all hate the feeling of making a cup of tea in the morning at it being ruined by little white bits coming out the kettle, as we all know this is LIMESCALE and no matter how much we descale the kettle it always seems to come back! And, it comes back even worse than before. No matter how hard we try it doesn’t want to stay away!
Did you know that hard water scale is one of the largest causes of wasted energy in the world?
Do you know just how bad the limescale problem really is and how much it is costing us?

It is that big that it can cost a small house an extra £200 a year!!!

The formation of Limescale in water systems caused by hard water is one of the largest hidden on going costs to any domestic and commercial heating system, estimated to cost the UK industry in excess of ONE BILLION POUNDS per year.

As limescale builds up on the heat exchanger, your boiler has to work harder to heat the water in your home. Working harder will cut short the lifespan of your boiler and on average will cost you around £1,000 to replace, not to mention the inconvenience of possible breakdowns during the coldest months.

Now there is a way we can stop it affecting us without being a massive pain and stress to ourselves. When limescale is removed from our water supply, households have been able to use 50% less detergent and the water temperature for washing clothes can be reduced from 40 °C to 15 – 20 °C.

The Blue Water Conditioner is proven to effectively reduce not only limescale build up but the money we spend on our water bills each year, so much so that in a few years the conditioner would have paid for itself.
Not only does this simply fit on to your pipe but it is tiny and doesn’t take me very long to fit.
If that isn’t enough to convince you here are the benefits of our Blue Water Conditioners
