Swift response from a call. Within 1 hour a Boiler repair engineer turns up, fixed the leak on my boiler and provides me with a free quote within 5 days, as my boiler is a 15-year-old combi. Your service and price are both great and I will be using you again. Thanks to both Matt and Tom for all the hard work. Good job done.

Not the first time I've used Ability, and they've never let me down. The central heating packed up and within 24 hours they were out and had it fixed with a replacement 'board' (whatever that may be!). The only downside is that the boiler wasn't nag powered, because my wife would have put the Gas Board out of business. Well done and thank you.

Top Class. It's great to find a personnel service these days. Both the leaking radiator and the boiler serviced. The old boiler has been making this annoying whining noise for some time and now it's stopped. Thanks for your prompt, polite and professional service.

I have just had a new Worcester Bosch boiler installed by Ability including a new flue and flushing of the system on my apartment. From start to finish, these guys and ladies worked very hard to get me the best quote, the best parts, the best service at the best price - and with a great guarantee! I had four quotes done by different companies and they outdid every single one. The product I got was quality, the service friendly and polite and the overall experience is one I am delighted to share. I could not recommend them more highly.

FANTASTIC! My mother lives in an old house and had a burst pipe leading to the boiler. I Googled the nearest company to get round to sort it out which happened to be Ability. Not only did they get round within the hour, but sorted the problem within 45 minutes, and as I'd paid for the first hour, they checked the oven and heater flu for Carbon monoxide free of charge and stayed longer to make sure the boiler fired up with no problems. Can't rate them highly enough! Many thanks to Dan the engineer!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Can I change a wall socket myself?

This isn’t advisable unless you know what you are doing. A professional Electrician will keep you safe and cost you less in the long run. You could cause yourself and your property serious harm. 

What are magnetic filters?

A magnetic filter is device that helps collect the sludge that can build up in a central heating system.

Much of the sludge is made up of rust particles that have corroded and come away from inside pipes or radiators. A magnetic filter is made up of a large magnet that attracts these particles, and then filters them out of the system. This helps prevent blockages and keeps the water flowing through the central heating system.

The idea behind these devices is that corrosion within a sealed wet central heating system produces sludge. This which can block up boiler heat exchangers, pumps and radiators and that because this sludge is ferrous in nature (that is, it results from iron or steel corrosion), it can be trapped by a powerful magnet.

This theory is partially true. But sludge can also result from the corrosion of copper, zinc or aluminium components. This is nonferrous, and will not be caught by a magnet.

Ideally, your central heating system should not contain any sludge anyway, because it should be dosed with the corrosion inhibitor. However over time, this inhibitor becomes diluted and if your system is drained, has a leak or losses pressure at times then this inhibitor can become less effective. So here at Ability, we strongly advise a magnetic filter along with the manufacturers.

Is having a smart meter fitted a smart move?

Smart meters allow you to monitor your energy usage in real-time and help you find ways to cut it. Many people have used smart meters to reduce fuel waste. You should also wait until your dishwasher and washing machine are full before you use them. Try to use the most energy-efficient settings.

Can adding inhibitor help prevent blockages?

Another method of preventing sludge build-up is adding corrosion inhibitor fluid to the central heating system. Maintaining the correct dose of inhibitor is an important part of caring for your boiler and some manufacturers require evidence of this to keep any warranty valid.

What is Carbon Offsetting?

Carbon offsetting is about funding projects around the world that help reduce carbon emissions by a measurable and verifiable amount. Without the extra “carbon finance” from people or organisations offsetting their emissions, these projects would not have happened.

Can replacing old bulbs save me money?

By using energy-saving bulbs instead of old-fashioned ones, you can save up to £180 per bulb. LED bulbs use around 90% less energy than traditional ones. If you’re already using energy-saving bulbs, turn the lights off when they’re not in use.
