If you work for the NHS, are over 65 or vulnerable, Gasworks London will clear frozen condensate boiler pipes for no charge
If you wake up to find the heating is off, an error warning light is flashing on the control panel or the boiler is making strange gurgling noises, the chances are the cause will be a frozen condensate drainage pipe. It’s a very common boiler problem at this time of year.
As a special Winter offer, Dave Halpin, owner of Gasworks London, is offering a free condensate pipe blockage clearance service for all NHS staff, over-65s and the vulnerable who live in a W postcode (excluding W1). Dave founded Gasworks London in 2006: he and his experienced engineers are experts at repairing boilers of all makes and ages and, if yours doesn’t prove economic to mend, installing new high-efficiency models. They provide 24-hour coverage throughout West London, focusing in particular on the Hammersmith area.
‘We take great pride in the friendly, personal way that we deal with our customers – I think that’s why we have so many word-of-mouth recommendations,’ explains Dave. ‘We always do our utmost to deliver a top quality service and our pricing structure is transparent: we don’t charge an upfront fee like so many other companies and, if a job only takes us five minutes to finish, then we don’t charge for the full hour.’
Intentionally, Gasworks London is a small operation. ‘I still really enjoy getting my hands dirty on both repairs and installations,’ admits Dave. ‘I have an excellent two-man team (James and Manveer), but I still like to know what is going on with every client. That way I can ensure that everything is done to the highest standards that I would expect in my own home.’
‘I think that the best thing about my job is the satisfaction I get when we crack a complex problem that has baffled other engineers. Sometimes, it can be just like solving a crime – like CSI Hammersmith!’
