Buying a house in Bath this Autumn?

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Yesterday we got a call from a customer who had just bought a Bath townhouse but was having trouble getting the boiler to work.  The property was stunning, decorated to perfection with beautifully landscaped gardens.  Sadly, as it turned out the boiler (an old Worcestor Bosch) had seen better days and we quickly established that it would need replacing.  As you can imagine the owner was not best pleased with this news as she was led to believe all was well with the heating and plumbing for her new dream family home.

So that got us thinking, when you view a property, how can you check that the plumbing is in good order?

Here at Ace Energy we’ve put together a few tips to avoid costly plumbing and heating repairs when buying a house.  Use them when you first view the house to save time and money later down the line.

Have you Booked Your Winter Boiler Service?

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

We are still taking bookings for pre-winter boiler services.  There are a number of good reasons to have your boiler serviced annually:

  • Most important - is the boiler safe?  Having your flue operation checked is essential to prevent dangerous gasses leaking into your home.
  • Is the boiler working as efficiently as possible?  A well tuned boiler will save you lots of money by keeping your gas bills low, especially the newer condensing boilers. 
  • Are there any faults showing up? If there are then this is a good time to get it fixed as a broken down boiler in a cold spell is no joke. 
  • Is the boiler under warranty? If so, most manufacturers will insist on annual servicing to keep the guarantee valid.  
  • Save your service paperwork – just like a car when you go to sell your house, show the service paperwork to prospective buyers

Gas Top Tips To Keep you Safe!

Friday, September 25, 2015

Following on from last week's Gas Safety Week, here at Ace Energy we have compiled a list of top tips to keep you safe in your home.

As most houses in the UK have some sort of gas appliance it's important to look after them and know how to spot the warning signs.

Tip Number 1:  Have all your gas appliances, including boilers, gas cookers and gas fires, safety checked annually.   Use a local, reputable Gas Safe Engineer, check their Gas Safe ID card - all engineers carry one (it's the law) and don't be afraid to ask to see it.  Boiler services start from just £65.00 plus VAT.
