About Us. We have over 20 years’ experience in installing, repairing and servicing of all types of domestic heating and plumbing systems.
5 years of installing and servicing renewable systems like solar thermal, air to air and air to water. (See our renewable energy pages).
Aquaheat is Gas Safe registered
(Reg no: 72646) and we are certified to work in all areas of domestic gas installation and repair (you can check this by clicking on the GasSafe web site link on our useful resources page).
We are also qualified to install un-vented hot water systems. As plumber and heating engineers, we had to sit and pass exams in order to carry this work out. We also had to sit and pass tests on becoming MCS Registered in order to fit solar thermal systems.
I have a small team who works with me and will be taking on other people at some point (obviously depending on workload). However, I do not want to lose the personal touch with customers as I feel this is what keeps my business healthy and helps me to keep costs down for the customer.
When we work in a customer’s house we make every effort to be clean and tidy. As a matter of course on installation work, we put dust sheets down and fully clean up after the work has been completed.
A bit of history…
I started working as an apprentice for a large heating company called Harp Heating. Here, I learned how to install all types of domestic heating systems. I trained at Dartford College for two years for a City & Guilds in Heating and Ventilation, after which I worked for a plumbing company for the next two years installing and repairing bathrooms and heating.
I then took on a large contract to refurbish 12 flats in the Crystal Palace area. After completing this project (on time and within budget) I then started installing new waste systems and complete pipe work carcassing for all the bathrooms and heating. The heating was all conventional heating with back boilers and front gas fires with cylinder cupboards for stored hot water.
I worked a further two years for a local contractor based in South West London, servicing, fault-finding and repairing all types of domestic heating systems in the social housing sector.
At the age of 25 yrs old, I set up my own plumbing and heating business. I employed two others and sometimes more for larger projects. We covered all types of domestic works and insurance work for big companies. Also I gained a large contract with Transco Gas Suppliers.
At the age of 29 I decided I wanted to see the world so-took a year out of the industry and went backpacking.
Since returning in 2002 I was employed for a major heating and plumbing company within the central London area. This work involved extensive further training within my field and all domestic heating and plumbing works from design, installation and servicing.
In April of 2004 I started “Aquaheat.org.uk” and have been growing the business ever since in all areas of domestic heating and plumbing. We deal with all the leading brands like Worcester Bosch, Valliant, Viessmann and Megaflo. We offer Gas safety certificates and Landlord certificates at very reasonable prices. All boiler breakdown work is at an agreed hourly rate and any installation work is at a set price.
