‘I’ve used Samuele to fix loos, replace a built-in shower and find leaks. The quality of his work is excellent – I’d recommend him to anyone.’ – Alex Seaborne
At this time of year, we all turn up and rely on our central heating systems. ‘It’s essential that they are working efficiently, both in terms of keeping homes warm and cosy and not wasting money on high bills,’ says Samuele Alberton, aka The Italian Plumber.
‘There are a few tricks of the trade that can help deliver the most heat for the best cost. If the top of a radiator is cool, it needs bleeding to increase the temperature; make sure boiler pressure is around 1.5; by reducing a temperature setting by one degree, you can save up to 10%; and make sure your timer settings suit your lifestyle.’ (For full details of this checklist, see Samuele’s website blog).
Samuele has been working in Hammersmith and Fulham for over a decade – his distinctive vans are a familiar sight – and in that time he has built a successful business based on word-of-mouth recommendation.
Samuele takes pride in his team’s friendly, efficient customer service. ‘No job is too big or small for us,’ he says. ‘Whether it’s preventative maintenance or an emergency with a faulty boiler (all major makes and models covered), a burst or frozen pipe, a blocked drain or just a persistent leaky tap, we will diagnose and fix the problem with minimum fuss.’
The Italian Plumber currently has a 9.91 rating on CheckaTrade (based on 280-290 reviews), is fully certified by Gas Safe and offers a 12-month warranty on all jobs. ‘We’re here to give you peace of mind,’ says Samuele. ‘We’ve worked hard to win our reputation – and we work just as hard to keep it.’
