What our customers say about our boiler services, installations and breakdowns


What our customers say about their experiences of using Active Heating Services’ heating engineers and plumbers for their annual boiler services, installations and breakdowns.

Mr A, Enbourne

I write to thank you for the amazing service that you gave us this week. Prior to renting out our house I discovered that we had missed a service and did not have the necessary certification I needed.

I contacted you in the morning, Carl carried out the service and other checks in the afternoon and by the end of the day I had the certificate.

This was exceptional service and for which Jane and I are very grateful, as were Regent Lettings who required it to complete the let of our home.

Very many thanks to you and the team.

Mrs B, Thatcham

We had reason to contact you on an emergency basis yesterday as our boiler was leaking oil. I am just writing to say a huge thank you for the fabulous service we received. From answering my text so quickly to the man turning up when promised through to a swift resolution to the issue – everything was first class

It is so comforting to know that when we need it, at times of emergency, we will receive such good, prompt service

Thank you to you and the team

Mrs J, Newbury

Thank you for the completed work that your company has done for us. We are very pleased with the work and the service that you have offered us and Carl has been very helpful and informative.

Mr R, Thatcham

Last August I asked Active Heating Services to quote for a new boiler installation at my home.

Alan visited soon after to inspect the then current installation and in an obvious bid to limit my expectations, declared that while a new boiler would be more efficient, it may not provide the improvements in low noise level, higher water pressure & flow consistency that I wanted.

I choose to go ahead anyway.

When Tony arrived a few weeks later he proceeded to remove the old boiler, replumb the bathroom removing several feet of prehistoric and redundant piping, installed the new  heater, leaving the bathroom in a state that Mrs.P would be proud of, he then went on to flush and test the heating system on what must have been the hottest day of 2016.

The result is a much quieter system that heats water instantly with an improved and constant flow, and while this was marvellous, the heating was not coming on as the weather was still too warm.

In the last couple of weeks the centra heating has engaged perfectly, the house is warm and comfortable and the water temperature & flow are still excellent.

Active Heating Services provided an exemplary service and I would (and do) have no hesitation in recommending them to all.

Mr M, Newbury

I am writing to think you and your fantastic team for sorting out my boiler recently. An unusual part had failed but your guys refused to be beaten and eventually found the problem which meant that I did not need to replace the whole boiler at great expense.

You helped arrange everything despite being on holiday and Alan even came out on a Sunday to complete the job and give us our heating back in time for the first cold snap.

As always, my wife and I look forward to recommending Active Heating whenever we can.

Mr Howard, Howard the Sweep, Thatcham

Hot water system repair: Debbie, with help from her colleagues at Active Heating Services recently delivered first class service for me. My hot water system went on the blink and as a chimney sweep in busy season I was very grateful to have my hot water supply restored.

The system failed over the weekend so I went to work on Monday morning dreading the thought of a cold shower at the end of the day. I gave Debbie a call that morning and she sent one of her lads round the same day. Not only did they repair the system, they did it in time so there was hot water available by the time I came home. What better service could I have wanted?

If I have any further plumbing or heating issues I’ll be calling on Active Heating Services. Thanks very much.

Richard Hornsby, Thomas Eggar Solicitors

I offer my sincere thanks for the thorough inspection undertaken at my client’s property recently, the costs of which were very reasonable. My clients have expressed their gratitude to you for identifying a significant and dangerous defect, which meant that the risk of a gas explosion was averted.

Mrs Roseblade, Thatcham 07/03/16

Installation of a pumped gravity led digital shower – Absolutely first rate service, very personable plumber who was patient and knowledgeable, did a very neat job and thoroughly cleaned up afterwards, cannot recommend highly enough.

Bill, Marketing and Design Associates Ltd.

I am very grateful for the effort in sorting out the heating in our office during the recent cold spell, despite several setbacks. This meant dealing with this at the weekend and fitting a replacement part late into the night! Your approach and manner throughout was highly professional and even though we sat in the cold for some time, you certainly gave the impression that it would be sorted out one way or another. It is good to see that true service is still alive and we are grateful that we have your number !

Alison and Andy, Newbury

We’ve had a few problems with our heating and hot water system and Active Heating have demonstrated outstanding customer care. Alan attended for three evenings in a row to sort our issues out and on one occasion did not leave till 10pm. His desire not to leave us smelly and cold was wonderful and we appreciated the time he took and the good mannered spirit with which he carried out the work given that we are sure he would much rather been at home eating his dinner ! We would not hesitate to recommend Active Heating to anyone with a plumbing or heating problem, however complicated it might turn out to be. The level of care we received was second to none and we cannot recommend their services more highly.

P Orme, Ecchinswell. (This Customer now has Active Care breakdown cover)

Thank you for the thorough, professional way in which you have conducted all aspects of the installation. I shall recommend you to ‘Which’ magazine.

Graeme Leech . Manager/owner . Regent Lettings. Newbury

We are strongly in favour of your Active Care breakdown cover and several of our clients have signed up to this. it is a superior service to the equivalent supplied by a national supplier

D Manson, Thatcham

Your Active Care is the best available locally and knocks the spots off the national players! I know this because I did quite a lot of research before making my decision to put my faith in you. I have an older boiler and was worried this may cause difficulties but when Alan arrived he assured me that this wouldn’t be a problem and proceeded to give the system a full service which was included in the price.
