“I’m a plumber. They completed the work to a standard I’d have been proud of myself”

Mr. Darby (Devon)

Mr Darby called Find Energy Savings to apply for a free boiler replacement in May 2014. As a former plumbing and heating engineer, he knew that his trusted twenty-year-old Potterton Prima 80 boiler needed to be replaced.

“Our old boiler used to be a really good boiler, but it was costing a fortune to heat the home. I applied to Find Energy Savings as we receive Child Tax Credits and I hoped I’d be entitled to grant assistance. The online application process was really simple.”

Find Energy Savings appointed a trusted local contractor, and within six weeks the boiler had been installed.

“I fully expected the process to take six months or more. I didn’t expect the process to be completed before my son’s school holidays had started!”

Mr Darby’s home was fitted with a new Baxi HS30, and he was delighted with the workmanship shown by the contractors.

“We needed that size of boiler as the house is quite big. As a plumber myself, I knew exactly what I wanted, and how I wanted it installed. They completed the work to a standard I’d have been proud of myself. I couldn’t have asked for any more.”

Having received a free replacement boiler, Mr Darby has been quick to recommend the service to friends.

“I’ve recommended the service to a number of people”, he said. “It was a really smooth process from start to finish. I’m really impressed with how easy it was, and I fully expect to see the benefits of the replacement boiler in my energy bills this winter”.
