Central Heating System - Repaired!
Customer Service
Quality

We asked R.S. Heating to call and see us relating to our central heating system, which had been attended by a company specialising in boiler and central heating annual maintenance. We had experienced a system shut-down. Their plumbers had replaced the main pump but their operatives could not bring our system back into operation after 3 hours, and left. They informed their company that our central heating system had not been installed correctly (in spite of them maintaining the boiler annually for the past 4 years!) and would not proceed until an independent plumber had inspected the system and reported. We contacted R.S. Heating and Matt arrived on 30th April at the time he said he would, checked the system and found that the problem was an air-lock. In one hour he had the 3 radiators upstairs all working and the ones downstairs were starting to heat up. He advised that we leave the boiler running as it may unblock the system. After 2 or 3 days the system was fully working. In summary: Matt from R.S. Heating fixed the problem in an hour where the other 3 plumbers couldn't do it in 2 visits adding up to 5 hours! Fantastic service from R.S. Heating. Many thanks!

The RS Heating team achieved an excellent result in an awkward situation. Our request:- to replace the old bath with the shower over it, the toilet and the wash basin with modern facilities. We did not want to lose the bath and we did not want a wall to be moved to allow more space. Lee, Scott, Darren and other team members worked their way through all the ups and downs of wet rot in floor and ceiling, 20" thick external walls, a rotten wooden lintel and a very confined space. They were always patient, hard working and friendly, with very good attention to detail. They did their best to work steadily through all the unexpected problems found with the property and only had to stay a couple of days longer than planned. In 2017 they fitted the whole house with central heating (13 radiators) and created a wet room out of our other small bathroom and their follow up service has been excellent as well. Their work is not cheap, but it reflects the high quality of design, planning, service and results. This is why we have used them so much.

We've been using RS Heating and Building for over 20 years now, they have done a lot of work for us, all to a very high standard and attention to detail, they are particularly careful to leave the place clean and tidy after work done. The current task was to replace a faulty central heating pump. Things we like about the company: Roger is very friendly, efficient and straightforward, explaining options and making sure that we are happy with work planned. We get a specific time for the work to be done and if something crops up to cause a delay we get a phone call (even if the delay is only about half an hour) so we are never hanging around waiting hopefully for a visit. The staff team are experienced and keen to make a good impression, they work hard to make sure we are completely satisfied.

Roger’s Team did wonders to provide me with a new, no-frills and ‘Safe’ Bathroom. At Roger’s visit, my thoughts on what I wanted were listened to, instant advice offered and a pleasantly surprising Quote presented to me, in person, 1.5 days later. The work was estimated to begin within the following fortnight, but started miraculously just 2 DAYS after I had immediately and happily accepted the quote. All the materials and fixtures were sourced and obtained with breath-taking expediency and the workers arrived promptly as was promised. It was achieved over the next 3 working days. The disruption to the Household was limited, the Team was friendly, knowledgeable and exceedingly Professional. I was delighted with the outcome, but dreadfully embarrassed by the state I had allowed the Bathroom to get into. No more of THAT… because Roger’s Blitzkrieg has given me a facility that deserves more care and attention in future. I cannot help but smile each time I go in and witness the sparkling transformation. NOTE: My end Cost was 1/4 of what others would have charged me, which included work & materials that were totally unnecessary. RSH&B Co., complied with my request, did only what was necessary - and were happy to do so. I've used them a second time, for a very simple non-emergency job of a replacement Shower in. The installation was done in about 90 mins or less. Impossible for ME, easy for the Professionals, and that's what RSHB really are !!

We had a wetroom fitted in November 2016. I would recommend the workmanship to anyone, but communication about the job was poor. We went away for a few days when the work started and as I was walking out of the door, Roger announced a change to the job. On our return, I found a bill for an extra cost, even though we had been given a quotation. We also found that R S Heating had ordered the wrong shower tray - not the one on the plan I drew, and attached to the quote - and Roger wanted us to pay the cost of replacing it. The discussions about price were not a pleasant experience. In hindsight, our absence (which we discussed in advance) contributed to communication problems and I suspect wetrooms aren't R S Heating's speciality. However, my advice is, if you use any trader, get the specification right, get a quotation, if it's a big job, check the work at important stages, and don't let yourself be pressured into changes that you will have to pay for.

A Which? Trusted Traders staff member replied on behalf of the trader (on 20/10/2017)
On receiving the posting from “Fletch” my first reaction was one of utter incredulity. I would first like to thank “Fletch” for his complementing our workmanship but strongly contest the lack of communication on our part. I was on site every day and ensured the customer was kept informed to all aspects. When the customer was away calls were made to the mobile and messages left but were often unanswered.I agree that the conversations were often not pleasant and one occasion I was abruptly shown the door!A full, three page specification was presented prior to order, detailing what was included including the suggested altered shower tray size.Subsequent alterations were all promptly confirmed in writing.Numerous problems and extra work required were encountered that were not included in our quotation.These were presented to the customer and fully explained, however in name of Goodwill,non were charged for and indeed on completion of the work (Satisfaction note signed)a further discount was given. Considerable letter writing was involved instead of personal discussions on the customer’s insistence. The work was completed on 23.01.17, the invoice was paid in full and all building regulations certification submitted.I have been running a successful heating and plumbing business since 1971 and have become extremely pragmatic when dealing with problems but suddenly being presented with a negative posting, nearly a year after work commenced 16.11.16 would make anyone incredulous.

I first contacted RS Heating when my old boiler broke down in December. The team arrived promptly and got it going again without any pressure to replace. When it failed again I had no hesitation in trusting their recommendation to replace and was impressed with the way Roger explained the various options to me and helped me decide what would be my best option. The team installed a Valiant boiler and went out of their way to minimise disruption to the fixtures and fittings in the kitchen (where the boiler was installed). During the installation there was some accidental water damage but the firm have been exemplary in their response and have repaired the decor to a high standard with no fuss or hassle. It is easy for a firm to provide good customer service when everything is straightforward but particularly impressive when those professional standards are maintained when problems are encountered. Without exception all the team members are friendly, courteous, hard working and knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team and will certainly be using the company in the future. Thank you.

Had a leaky shower enclosure. Used them because of which? And cost me over £1300. Still had a leak from door bottom, they returned on numerous occasions and failed to resolve it. Mr. Unwin suggested I use dye to find leaks route which I did. However after over 1 year of this fiasco he refused to do any further work , blaming the door I had bought! He offered to supply and fit a door he would supply. I did not want to spend any more money with RS, eventually another local supplier came and rectified the problem first time of asking. I am going to complain to the APHC. Maybe I was unlucky but - bad job, bad service, problem not solved and £1300 to add insult to injury.

The work installed 12.02.15 involved removing a leaking shower tray and door, repairing the damaged floor and fitting the customers own shower tray / door. To tiling, using the customers own materials, the bottom 2 No. courses of tiles and vertically 2 No. courses wide the original door position. The quote dated 19.11.14, clearly states that no responsibility can be accepted for the customers own materials. The installation was deemed satisfactory and invoiced 20.02.16. On 23.02.15 we attended to a small leak on the right hand side of the shower tray. On 27.02.15 we re-called to reports of a small leak, all appeared satisfactory. A year later on 09.03.16 we re-called and spent considerable time re-sealing the cubicle. On 31.06.16 we re-called to find that the customer had used dye to trace the leak and applied silicone themselves. We then reluctantly informed the customer that the shower door/frame, which had been supplied to us could be at fault and that we could do no more with that equipment We would be willing to fit new, purchased through a recognised Plumbers Merchant. We appeared to part on amicable and understanding terms. The invoice price was £1074.00, inc. vat. and paid on 12.03.15. In conclusion, I am pleased that Mr Speck found a plumber who has solved the problem. Our team are all concerned that this has occurred would sincerely like to know the remedy. Fortunately for us, this is a very rare event as we regularly fit a variety of cubicles with no concerns. We feel that we fitted, what was offered to us, in a professional, accepted practice manner and since made every effort, on numerous visits to rectify the problem before, reluctantly, reaching the conclusion that the door / frame was at fault. We has since issued a letter of apologies for the inconvenience caused.
