After moving into our house we found that the existing central heating and hot water system (only 5 years old) was inadequate. Detailed investigation revealed that it was, in fact, badly designed, badly fitted, and would never be capable of heating the house effectively. The existing system needed to be completely removed and a new system designed and fitted.

After 4 separate quotes Andy Clarke’s, in the middle in terms of cost, was selected. The decision was not fully cost based as Andy, on initial meeting, had been by far the most interactive in discussing and refining the system and equipment I was interested in having installed.

  • Vaillant 37Kw sealed system condensing boiler
  • Vaillant uniSTOR 210 unvented hot water cylinder
  • Vaillant wirelessly connected control system
  • 23 radiators
  • Copper pipes used throughout.

The removal of the existing and reinstallation of the new system was expected to take approximately 2.5 – 3 weeks to complete.

Once started the work, as predicted, took 3 weeks from start to finish. The house is now warm and properly heated throughout the coldest weather and we have a properly designed, properly fitted, properly balanced and neat installation.

We have other plumbing work that needs to be undertaken later this year and Andy will be the plumber of first choice. I have no hesitation in recommending him and the work he does.

Right from the quote through to finishing the job, Andy was professional, answered all my questions, accommodated a few changes without any hassle and advised me on what products would suite my needs best. On completion he took the time to explain all settings and operations of my new install and left the house very tidy. I couldn’t be happier with his work and would definitely recommend him for future work.
