Replacing storage heaters
While we're able to repair most known brands such as Dimplex and Creda , there comes the point when replacing storage heaters is the only option left.
A typical storage heater will last anything between 10 to 15 years depending on the make and model. Beyond that point, not only servicing your heaters becomes more costly but they also become less efficient and more expensive to run.

These guys are the best! Super helpful, knowledgeable, and honest! I had a problem with my storage heater and instead of coming out and charging me to just reset the thermostat, Yassin walked me through it over video chat which saved me a house visit fee. I’ve never encountered a business so willing to help! Will definitely be giving them a call for any other storage heater needs in the future

Had a night storage heater turned cold. Called them and they advised me to follow the video tutorial to reset the thermostat. Did as per the video and voila. Nothing is better than an electrician with honest advise.

Very fast response when i emailed them asking them to fix my storage heater. The electrician Yassin was very friendly and gave some helpful advice when deciding whether or not the storage heater actually needed replacing. Price of service was reasonable as he also helped to fix my bathroom fan which was very loose and noisy previously. I will look to use your services again in future. Thanks.
