I asked for a service of my boiler and also pointed out that the radiators where getting warm when the hot water was running. Sam instantly knew what was wrong with the boiler, fixed the problem with a new part and performed a service. The overall service that I received from SureFire was excellent and I would have no problem using Sam again in the future or recommending him to friends and family.

I am very pleased with surefire, from the moment I set up the job I was contacted in minutes, the job was organised in minutes and completed when we had agreed for a lesser price than was quoted. I've already set up a return visit for next year. Cheers Sam!

Got a call straight after posting, talked through the issue and gave boiler make and model. Was told instantly what the issue was and given a date to fix. Turned up on time, with the correct part, fitted it and left. Very polite, very efficient and good value.

Sam was great. Turned up when he said he would, easily finished the jobs with clear timelines for when they could be done and finished. Really professional and trustworthy.

Really pleased with Sam's work. Booked him in to fix a faulty boiler, and just before he turned up the boiler stopped working completely. He was able to quickly diagnose the faults and get it working again temporarily, before returning the next day to fit the replacement parts. Now it's working perfectly! Charged a fair price, didn't try and bump up the job and was very friendly and polite. I'll definitely be recommending him to friends and family.

stephen king's question

Hello I found your details by a google search, wondered if you could give me the benefit of your experience, I have an unusual question...... I am building a house and have installed the underfloor heating pipes and screed but not yet got a boiler. For various reasons there will be no building over winter and I am concerned that the pipes will freeze. As the house itself has yet to be insulated, I cannot heat the house to keep the floor warm. And I cannot drain the system (already pressure tested so still full of water) as there is no drain valve or low point. So I was wondering if I could plug in a small electric hot water tank, say 50 litres, and just leave it on and pump the water continuously if the temp drops below freezing for any more than a few days. Do you think that would be enough heat, with the continual flow, just to keep the water pipes above freezing? Been racking my brains on this one to find a solution, would be very grateful if you had any thoughts or advice. Many thanks Stephen

    If so I don’t think it would need any heat, as long as the water is circulating, it shouldn’t freeze, unless we get arctic conditions

    Is the pump fitted to the underfloor heating yet?
