Tips on energy efficiency in your home.....

Home heating & hot water
Heating and hot water accounts for around 84% of the total energy use in UK homes.

UK heating systems
Over 95% of homes have a boiler. Of these, 800,000 have no controls at all, almost 8 million have no room thermostat and over 70% lack the minimum levels of controls in the 2010 building regulations.

Turn down your thermostat 1°
Turning your room thermostat down by one degree can potentially save £85 - £90 and 310kg - 360kg carbon dioxide per year (Energy Savings Trust Report)

Recommended temperature
The recommended temperature setting for homes is 18 – 21°C but you can alter this depending on your individual requirements.

Energy savings with controls
Using an on/off load compensating thermostat together with TRVs can reduce energy usage by up to 53%.

Customer Reviews

Excellent Plumber!  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  KateB-1013  29 May 2019
Having read positive reviews, we arranged for Chris to install a new Worcester boiler. He was brilliant, very professional, trustworthy, knew his trade really well and turned up on time when he said he would. His son, who helped, was brilliant too. Have no hesitation in recommending him.
Another Great Job!   5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  PhilK-78    29 May 2019
Chris installed my old Worcester boiler nearly 15 years ago and when, after years of trouble-free operation it eventually reached the end of it’s life, I was delighted to find he was still available to fit a new one. As before the quality of the work was excellent, the whole job being completed in a few hours with no fuss. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Excellent work!    5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)    GailashP  10 May 2019
Apologies for the overdue delay in writing this review. Chris is a brilliant professional plumber! He promptly changed our old boiler and changed few radiator components. Very courteous, and efficient. Everything works really well now and certainly have noticed increased in heating efficiency. Will certainly recommend him to others.

New boiler and radiators  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  Smithy2014  01 Mar 2019

Excellent service  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  TonyM-719  14 Jan 2019
Chris supplied and fitted a Worcester Bosch system boiler to replace our old one that was on it’s last legs. From first speaking to Chris to final installation he (and assistant Rhys) gave an excellent service and I was well pleased with the new boiler and that they got all of our radiators working to their maximum when before half were hardly getting warm. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone.

Highly Recommended  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  StuartM-527  17 Aug 2018
From getting a quote to the actual install Chris was very polite and professional. Chris turned up everyday exactly on time and got on with the job straight away. He always ensured that he consulted me whenever a decision was to be made to make sure I was happy with what he was doing. He did a great job at making sure that everything was tidied away at the end of each day and cleared up after himself once the job was done.
Highly Recommended  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  AndyR-237  30 Jul 2018
Chris has recently installed a new boiler for us. We were very impressed from the outset and found he provided very good advice, his work was to a very high standard and he was competitvely priced. I would highly recommend him and will definitively use him for other work.
Chris Alam is the best plumber ever!  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  KenT-38  25 Jun 2018
This is the third job Chris has done for us, he fitted a boiler in our previous house and he replaced the boiler in our new house and sorted out the central heating system which was a mess. He has just completed a wet room for us and we are extremely pleased with it. He has done an excellent job, he works hard arrives on time and is a very organised and neat worker. He always clears up at the end of each day. He is very helpful when decisions have to be made. We would not hesitate in recommending Chris if you want a professional job at competitive rates.
Highly recommend  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  MagentaSpoon82-2  31 May 2018
Chris has replaced and moved my boiler,serviced my boiler, redirected pipe work, installed new radiators, new pipework, removed an old gas fire etc etc. As you can tell the jobs he has done are many ,this is because he is one of the most knowledgable, helpful and honest people I have had the pleasure to meet and I wouldn’t use any one else. Every job is left neat and tidy and work is completed on time. I strongly recommend you give Chris a call before looking elsewhere. Thanks Chris .🌻

Highly satisfied Glenfield customers!  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)    ScarletTrophy46-1       26 april 2018
Chris installed a new boiler and central heating system in March 2018. We found him to be extremely professional, reliable and very knowledgeable. He was able to discreetly install pipework under the floor, unlike suggestions from other plumbers who quoted. He also agreed to update our bathroom while installing a new shower. He was very clean and tidy and caused minimum disruption throughout his time working at our home. He always arrived on time and the work was carried out to schedule. We are delighted with the heating system and would highly recommend Chris to anyone needing a new boiler. We will definitely be using him again for further work needed to our house.

New Bathroom & Boiler    5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  WhiteRadiator60-2    23rd April 2018
Fantastic 10 stars plus Chris fitted my boiler 2 years ago and so when I had a new bathroom earlier this year Chris was first and only choice amazing job and was left clean neat and tidy and both within timescale and quote agreed thanks Chris.

Boiler exchange with no hassle.   5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  GrayRadiator72  5th April 2018
First class service from Chris who guided us through every step of our boiler exchange explaining in detail all options. Agreed on which boiler to have, the price and fixed a date. Chris arrived as arranged on time and got right on with the installation which was up and running by the afternoon. All controls fully explained, all packaging along with old boiler and even the spoil from the condensing soakaway taken away. The central heating system was flushed and set up the next day. The work was completed well within the arranged time and everything left neat and tidy. Chris is a very pleasant and professional worker that I would highly recommend.

Highly recommended for Central Heating/Boiler Replacement   5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  OrangePot28   4th Jan 2018
Worcester Bosch boiler replaced by Chris following breakdown of old boiler and it was a really satisfying experience. He came recommended by WorcesterBosch and he was selected for his experience but now I can comment on his Service. Chris is :

1) Quick to respond : Boiler installation started within 10 days of agreeing price and date.
2) Neat and tidy work : all dismantling clean and systematic, all pipework is neat, left the place very tidy.
3) Fixed timeline : Chris suggested it would take approx. 3 days – thats exactly how long it took, he stayed with the job 100% of time until complete.
4) Fix all agreed heating issues : Every issue (poor circulation, Gas pipe extension, …etc.) agreed before were fulfilled, no reluctance at all!
5) Professionally and fully equipped : Chris has his own modern Power-flush systems.
6) Friendly and accommodating : even took care of additional heating work when asked.

I would highly recommend Chris Alam Plumbing and Heating!

New Kitchen    5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  RichardM-562        9th Dec 2017
We found out about Chris when we needed our central heating boiler replacing. He did such an outstanding job that we asked him to service a gas fire and subsequently fit a new fire. We then mentioned remodelling our kitchen – He not only put us on to a designer, but also fitted the kitchen along with specialists that he brought in for plastering, woodworking and the electrical installation.
It was a big task but Chris and the guys put in a lot of hard work – the end result is a kitchen that not only looks bigger but, with Chris’s recommendations, is more personal to us. It is difficult to find enough superlatives to describe Chris’s work. He is punctual, friendly, informative and a real problem solver – he always treated our house as if it was his own and made sure everything was cleaned up at the end of the working day.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone requiring plumbing and associated work.

New Bathroom   5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5) TerryS-138   7th Nov 2017
I have no hesitation in recommending Chris to fit a new bathroom. Ours needed stripping back to bare walls and he organised the electrician ,plasterer and tiler for us. This meant minimum disruption and no hold ups. The quality of work was great , Chris installed a new boiler for us 3 years ago and has maintained it since. I would highly recommend Chris for any plumbing and heating work.

New Boiler.  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  TerenceM-18  18th Oct 2017
I have an old Victorian house, which had a fairly old (25 ish years) boiler. Chris and Monty had this replaced and working quickly, with a minimum of fuss and mess. There were a couple of challenges, but these were quickly and ingeniously resolved, (Draining the system, so new isolation valve was quickly added, and I didn’t have a thermostat anywhere, so Chris ran wires through the crawl space, and got mugged by my dog when he tried to get back out 🙂 )

I now have a very quiet, efficient boiler. Should have got it done years ago.

Very satisfied customer  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  David S  8th Sept 2017
Just had Chris to remove my old central heating system and install a complete new one. He thoroughly explained all the options for the new system before giving a quote , and fully explained the controls after the system was installed, his workmanship was 1st class, neat clean and tidy, arriving on time every day, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Great Service    5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)  MaxH-23   2nd May 2017
We used Chris after getting several quotes form local plumbers for a pretty big job. Installing new boiler to a new position, associated pipework and also a new cylinder. We were also planning an extension at the time and Chris was the only quote that got in the loft to suss out where new pipework would need to go to avoid an RSJ.

Like the other 2 reviews on the site he was always on time which is something that I’m quite particular about and was always very tidy, ensuring everything was cleaned up as he went along.

I don’t get the chance to recommend many tradespeople as not many have impressed me but I would recommend Chris to anybody that needed a competent, professional and friendly plumber.
