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. 

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.

How much insulation should I use in my Attic?

An ideal depth of blanket style insulation, which is glass or wool, for a loft is approximately 250 to 270 mm. If your existing insulation is quite old, it’s best to check the depth, as the recommended depth has changed from only a few years ago when it was 200mm. Going further back only 100mm was suggested.

How do you fit a wooden floor properly?

When installing a wood or laminate floor, you normally get much better looking results if the skirting boards are installed after floor. This way you can hide the expansion gap required with the skirting and there is no need to use any additional add on beads or profiles, which are notoriously difficult to install around door frames neatly.

Can replacing old light bulbs really save you 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.

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.

Last week my radiator started leaking in my bathroom, Ability sent out a friendly plumber within 30 mins and saved me a whole load of time and money before the house flooded, really pleased thank you would highly recommend

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!!
