This company was extremely easy to deal with. The staff I had dealings with were very helpful, especially Carlo. When there was a slight hiccup with the first installation company assigned to us, Carlo got on the case immediately and reassigned another company. The company they used were extremely professional. Overall I am very pleased with the whole process.

Another heating company in let me down and said they could not proceed with my heating conversion at the kast minute due to the fact i had a coal fired back boiler. I spoke to a few firms nobody would do it.i phoned Warm Front and spoke to Carlo, we can do that mate! 1 month later i have a new combi boiler , hot water on demand and a warm house for the first time in 13 years. I am over the moon and can't thank Carlo and his lads enough. They are true professionals who know exactly what theyre doing , very tidy and will be done before you know it. Incredible service and lovely people .Thank you so much Carlo and team. I will never forget what you have done .

Great service from Carlo who was there from start to finish helping my mother save at least £4000 on a full central heating system Carlo helped us get a very good company that was brilliant and installed the system within the week of coming to survey the job and only taking one day to install Would definitely recommend this service as when I was phoning up companies myself they either wasn’t turning up or telling us we wasn’t eligible or turning up and then hearing nothing from them again Once again 5 stars for this company

This will depend on how much work is involved and whether it is a new install or if old heating has to be removed etc.

This price will get you a full central heating system that includes a boiler, radiators, heating controls and pipework.

What Is An Air Source Heat Pump Central Heating ?

This runs on electricity and the system installed would be radiators, an ASHP Unit and a cylinder,

The air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air and converts this into a liquid refrigerant at a low temperature.

The heat is sent to your radiators or underfloor heating.
