As part of our efforts to provide a complete service we have a dedicated boiler & cooker maintenance department, who attend to all makes of gas, oil & LPG domestic and light commercial appliances.
All engineers are fully trained to Gas Safe and OFTEC standards. We specialise in Aga and Rayburn range cookers and can offer a refurbishment service which can involve conversion from oil and gas to electricity for improved controllability and efficiency if required.
Our re-enamelling service is comprehensive and involves stripping down the appliance and removing its’ shell from the site for a professional finish. Re-enamelling is carried out in a choice of colours, and then the range is rebuilt making it look almost like new.
Electric conversions carry a 5-year warranty on the heating element and work can normally be carried out and completed in one day.
Oil and gas boiler technology has improved significantly over recent years, resulting in boilers which are more efficient and more controllable than ever before – some of which also offer remote access and control via any internet-enabled device.
Replacement of an ageing boiler can provide a significant improvement in fuel efficiency – leaving you to decide whether you pocket the fuel savings or just enjoy a warmer home! Renewable heating technologies have become increasingly popular and we have partnerships with MCS-accredited installers for both biomass boilers and heat pumps – giving you the best of both worlds – our reputation for quality and after-sales support, coupled with specialist installers of your chosen technology.
We work with a range of leading oil and gas boiler manufacturers so you can rest easy in the knowledge that we will find the most appropriate system for your needs, and because we are approved installers we can also offer extended warranties – of up to 7 years – on the boilers we install.
Boiler Service & Maintenance
No matter how efficient and sophisticated your boiler may be, it requires regular servicing to maintain its efficiency and minimise the potential for breakdowns and problems.
Our dedicated team of service engineers provide year-round service and breakdown support, with out of hours response provided to regular customers. We stock the most commonly-used spare parts for the boilers we install, and have relationships with all major suppliers to obtain any part we don’t keep in stock as quickly as possible – thereby minimising your downtime.
We now offer a range of service contracts too – ranging from simple servicing to all-inclusive cover for customers who have had their boiler installed by us
Commercial Plumbing & Heating Systems
As well as our work in the domestic sector, Westalls has provided plumbing & heating services to a wide range of larger private and commercial properties, so we have the skills and experience to work on schools, stately homes, hotels and other small commercial properties – please contact us to discuss your project.
Domestic Plumbing & Heating Systems
Domestic plumbing & heating systems are our bread & butter – forming the majority of our workload. Our polite & professional team of engineers are well used to working inside of our customers’ properties and we will treat you & your home with the utmost respect.
All of our staff are also CRB checked for your peace of mind. We are happy to discuss gas, LPG, oil & biomass boilers, along with heat pumps and other renewables – so whatever your plans and current heating system, please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will be happy to provide free advice and a quotation.
We are all now much more aware of the finite nature of the fuel resources available to us, so it makes sense to have a heating system which makes the very best use of the fuel it consumes.
An efficient system will enable you to save money on fuel, or to get more heat out of the fuel you currently use, but either way there is an inherent and obvious benefit in achieving maximum efficiency and we will work with you to help achieve this in your property.
One important aspect of achieving a more efficient system is doubtless the use of more effective controls – which also provide far greater controllability than traditional heating programmers. This doesn’t have to mean a bewilderingly sophisticated touch screen controller with dozens of different settings to be adjusted (unless of course that’s what you want!) – just replacing a simple on/off programmer with a programmable thermostat, for example, can dramatically improve comfort and efficiency.
We can also fit any one of the current range of ‘smart’ or ‘learning’ thermostats (such as the Nest, Hive or Tado, etc) if you wish to fit more advanced technology, and are happy to discuss multi-zone wireless systems such as the Honeywell Evohome system with you – allowing you individual control over each room in your property.
High Pressure Drain Cleaning
We have made a significant investment in a specialised high-pressure drain cleaning machine to enable us to provide this service to our customers – clearing drains and pipes quickly and efficiently.
High Quality Bathroom Installations
Rather than leaving you to coordinate the various trades you need in order to replace or refurbish your bathroom, we’ll take on the whole project if you want us to – or equally we are happy to handle just the plumbing requirements.
With a wide range of experience of installing thousands of bathrooms we will work with you to create a stylish and relaxing haven in whatever style appeals to you. Please speak to us before you purchase your sanitaryware so that we can advise and assist – and you can benefit from our discounts with all leading local suppliers.
Please note that we will generally not install sanitaryware purchased elsewhere – especially from discount retailers – as poor-quality sanitaryware will usually end up costing much more to install due to the fact that such products are often poorly made with wide tolerances, making it much more time-consuming to achieve an acceptable finish.
Planned Maintenance & Safety Inspections
We carry out planned maintenance and servicing for a range of clients, and gas safety inspections for tenanted properties.. Many organisations operating in the rented sector simply offload all of their plumbing and heating issues to us, leaving us to deal direct with their tenants and ensure both regulatory compliance and tenant satisfaction – something we are very happy to do.
Renewables – Biomass, Heat Pumps & Solar
Renewable technologies are here to stay – but how do you find out which is right for you – if any? Many of the companies in this field can only offer their own technology, but at Westalls we can offer the full range of both renewable and traditional systems – we have no axe to grind, so you can be sure you will get the best advice and the right system for you, your property, and your lifestyle.
We can supply and install a range of gas, oil, wood-burning, or multifuel stoves and flues. Our stoves engineer is also a builder by trade, so we can handle the whole installation for you – from opening up old fireplaces to the construction of a new one; lining the flue; the stove installation; commissioning the stove and demonstrating how best to use it.
Underfloor heating systems offer a comfortable and efficient way to heat your home or business, and are particularly effective when heating spaces with high ceilings. We have been installing underfloor heating systems for the past 20 years and have a great deal of experience in the design and installation of such systems. We work with a range of suppliers and can therefore ensure that you always get the most appropriate system for your needs.
Whether you need a new water supply installed, burst pipework repaired, new storage tanks installed or existing ones maintained or repaired, a pressurised and pumped system designed and installed, water meters fitted, or for the whole supply and distribution system to be cleaned and flushed – Westalls can deal with it all.
