Extremely pleased with service provided. I had to turn off water to stop a significant leak from the boiler. Would have been without water and heating all weekend without assistance to resolve the issue. Engineer turned up within 20 minutes of my call on a Saturday morning, to put a temporary fix in place so that I had cold water supply and heating over the weekend.

Their service has been beyond excellent. I called up as my elderly aunt was without heating following a boiler failure. Despite it being just before Christmas they got me a quote same day and two days later replaced her heating system IN JUST ONE MORNING. I can't praise them enough. They pulled out all the stops when they realised it was for an elderly lady in winter. Matt Roxburgh

We own a rental property in Newton.le.w and have used the company a couple of times before. Last Sunday we were contacted by the tenants to report a fault with the heating boiler. We phoned Steve & he called the next morning to say the boiler needed replacing . He provided us with a quote & installed the new boiler on the next day. Where could you find better reliable service? Job done - the tenants don't know how lucky they are!

Initial visit on the same morning as my request, ie Thursday, the work was carried out on Monday. The work was satisfactory but over expensive; I blame myself for not getting more quotes.

This feedback is given by Age UK on behalf of a client who asked for help finding a central heating maintainer. The client is 89 years old and wanted to find a company he could trust. Age UK pointed him to the Trading Standards consumer line and he used Sure Fire Heating. The client has asked me to pass on his grateful thanks. The service was "A1" and highly recommended. The price was competitive and the service was very good. They were clean and careful.

Pre installation Ste gave advice, outlined what work would be undertaken and the cost. He was always contactable either by phone or e mail and rang back promptly if I couldn't get hold of him immediately. A full installation took 3 days to complete and a team of polite and pleasant workmen turned up every day on time and worked without a break to get the job completed on schedule. The work completed was of a high standard and all my carpets were covered up and what little mess was made was cleaned up at the end of the day. Once the higher spec central heating system was up and running the higher pressure caused a leak from our bathroom sink. Water came through the kitchen ceiling and caused damage. Ste sorted the problem immediately. Downside: A bedroom radiator valve was left open when the system was turned on which caused a leak which came through the living room ceiling which was sorted straight away.

I cannot speak more highly of this company and the gents who completed the work. I contacted SFH through this website in order to assess my boiler situation and provide a quote. British Gas had condemned my boiler and quoted nearly £3k for a replacement and all associated work. Ste came to assess the boiler the same day I called and noted all the defects and problems that the British Gas engineer had. The work was done in a few hours just a few days later. The lads worked quickly and efficiently and were extremely tidy. All done at a fraction of the original quote from British Gas. Very very pleased and would recommend the firm to anyone(And I now have hot water again!!).
