Macfarlane Heating Services are delighted to make the finalist shortlist of the 2018 Regional Boiler & Heating Installer or Contractor of the Year Award.
The Energy Efficiency measures introduced by the Government following the Energy Act 2013, included the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme, the Green Deal Finance Initiative, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). These measures together help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce Carbon emissions.
The aim of the Energy Efficiency Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing these schemes. And to help encourage best practice within the Energy Industry as it works to improve UK housing stock.
The 2018 Regional Boiler & Heating Installer or Contractor of the Year Award rewards one exceptional company, in each of the 11 Regional areas around the UK, that installs, maintains or repairs energy efficient boilers or heating systems.
This award recognises the efforts of fully qualified Boiler & Heating engineers that provide excellent customer service, and demonstrate a high standard of quality workmanship or best practice within their local community.
We are looking forward to the awards night on the 29th June.
With the current drop in temperature we have had several calls from customers with no heating. If your boiler is making a gurgling noise, showing an EA or flame loss error code, your condensate pipe may be frozen.
This video link will hopefully give you simple enough instructions to get you back up and running.
If not, give us a call and we will do our best to get you back up and running as soon as possible on 01560 482717.
The Scottish Government is offering owner occupiers, private tenants and private sector landlords who’s properties are in Council Tax Band A, B or C up to £500 for a replacement boiler providing the efficiency measures are recommended through a Green Deal assessment and installed by an approved installer. Macfarlane Heating Services are a Green Deal Approved installation company. Home Energy Scotland are advising that if you submit your claim you can also claim up to £100 towards the cost of your Green Deal assessment.

What happens after I apply?
Once your application has been received, if you are successful, you will be offered a loan from Home Energy Scotland. You must not start work until you have received a loan offer.
Does your central heating system take a long time to heat up?
Are your radiators hot at top but COLD at BOTTOM?
Are some rooms in your home cooler than others?
If so, your heating system may benefit from a Powerflush.
A powerflush is a process using specialised equipment and chemicals to clean your heating system and remove the magnetite that is prone to block pipework and radiators, reducing their output by up to 70% in some cases!
We would also recommend installing a magnet filter to collect any magnetite in future and thus protect and extend the life of your heating system.
