Visit to Austria

A fun-packed trip to the KWB headquarters was last week’s adventure for Martin, our Managing Director, and our chief installer Steve. They learnt about advanced combustion, saw the new Combifire add-on to the Classicfire log boiler, and met up with other regional partners. Looks like the weather was sunny over there!
A gold star for whoever can spot Martin in the photos…. they seem to be a camera-shy pair! Next time, take some selfies, guys…

We are out installing… never mind the hailstones!

Our installers have just been putting the finishing touches to a biomass heating system in a working dairy farm. They are out now (in this very changeable weather!) installing a large boiler system on a Lakeland estate.

We have had a lovely couple of weeks’ weather, but the sleet, hail and bitter wind are a good reminder that upgrading old heating systems is an important job. Switching to biomass with one of our highly efficient KWB boilers will keep you cosy in the worst of weathers, with the added warm glow that you are changing to a truly sustainable and environmentally-conscious way of life.

Here are some pictures of the dairy farm installation in progress…

A new partnership with KWB

We have formed a new partnership with biomass boiler manufacturer KWB. We are now officially the KWB Regional Partner for the North of England. This is an exciting new venture for us, enabling us to supply and install a wider variety of biomass heating solutions, including wood chip and log boilers. KWB are, as you can read on our 'Partnership' page, a great company providing high quality, reliable products. We are very pleased to enter into this partnership, and feel we can go from strength to strength together.

We will, of course, continue to service the boilers we have installed from the other suppliers we have worked with in the past. If you are an existing customer, you need have no concerns that we will leave you in the lurch! We have always prided ourselves on choosing high quality products - you can rest assured that any boiler system we have installed is, and will continue to be, reliable and efficient for years to come.
