Sales spiel over substance

Sales spiel over substance... ARPH happily quote that whilst they aren't cheap, their product recommendations and service levels are worth it... after all, you get what you pay for, right? Well, based upon recent experience, this couldn't be further from the truth, having been left without heating and hot water from Monday morning until Friday evening the whole install was shambolic, with excuse after excuse. They fused the new boiler, by installing an incompatible thermostat, when they tried to fix that, they accidentally caused fault elsewhere... I was left on Friday installing the thermostat via British Gas. This morning I received final invoice, at an additional cost £300+. I would strongly advise that you avoid this company at all cost, they clearly don't know what they are doing.

We are sorry that you are unhappy with the works provided. We quoted as requested. We advised that a Viessmann 35KW combi would be the best option as it is likely to help with the hot water issues you were experiencing. We would evaluate after installation and could quote for a mains booster pump if required. Quotation was accepted. On installation day you asked us to clarify if the mains pump was being installed. We advised it wasn't due to the advice offered at quotation stage. We did offer to abort works, but was asked to continue. We installed the boiler. We asked for the Hive thermostat you had opted to supply to reduce the installation cost. It was handed to us with no information and in a blank box. On installation it blew the PCB's on the boiler.We then realised you had provided the incorrect Hive. We did query before install that the model was correct, you confirmed it was. We immediately contacted our supplier in bid to source PCB's. League time was too long. We purchased another boiler and used the PCB'S from that. Unfortunately they were faulty, this was totally unforeseen. We immediately contacted Viessmann and the engineer attended and repaired and produced a report confirming that the boiler was working adequately and installed safely. We offered temp heaters and use of office showering facilities while you were compromised of services, you declined the offer. We fitted the correct Hive FOC and reduced your bill as a good will. We did everything we could.
Up to their usual high standards.

We have used AR Plumbing for some 12 years and have always found them to do a good job. We asked for a new boiler and a number of radiators to be replaced. We got a quote very quickly and were able to agree a date without difficulty some weeks in advance. The work was done with a minimum of fuss and noise which was particularly important as my wife is ill and finds it hard to cope with noise. They were as always polite and tidy. The work was completed to schedule and in line with the quote and we are very pleased with it.

The guys arrived in good time to work on the bath - and did an expert job replacing a leaking overflow and resealing. They were quick, professional and left with everything clean and tidy. Thanks!

A R Plumbing & Heating fully installed a new heating system for us. Very knowledgeable staff. Worked very cleanly, provided good quality workmanship, very reliable and staff very friendly. Job completed on time and within quoted budget. Also a lovely point is they are a family run business so they make you feel like you are being very well looked after through the whole process from enquiry to installation completion. House is now lovely and warm. Would highly recommend. Thank you A R Plumbing & Heating!

I had been dreading having a new bathroom for a very long time as I knew how disruptive it can be. I had no reason for concern, as ARP&H carried out a complete refurbishment in a most professional and efficient manner. The new bathroom is great!

Boiler issue

I found AR Plumbing & Heating via the Viessman Boiler website as a registered installer. From first contact Andy could not have been more helpful, attempting to first try to resolve the issue over the phone. When it became clear that the issue would need further inspection, Andy was able to fit me in good time and was also very clear with the pricing. During the fault finding Andy took the time to explain what he had found and what was needed to fix the issue and again was clear in costs to fix. Once everything was remedied Andy checked I was okay with everything that had been completed. Extremely happy with the service and have already booked A R Plumbing and Heating to complete further work.

I found AR Plumbing & Heating via the Viessman Boiler website as a registered installer. From quote to completed job, Andy & his "boys" were both professional & friendly. Andy even gave me a follow up call about a week later just to see how I was getting on with my new boiler. I will definitely be recommending this company to family & friends. Thank you AR Plumbing & Heating from one very satisfied Customer
