Our gas central heating system bit the dust right in the middle of winter brrrr. We had two weeks using electric portable heaters which did little to warm our 4 bedroom house while we got quotes to replace our heating options. We decided on Southern Plumbing because of their speed at responding to our situation and a competitive quote. They originally said it wouldn't be a few weeks before they could start the installation, however we received a call saying the new system had arrived and they would start in a couple of days. The whole thing was up and running in under a week and the guys who installed it and took away our broken one were fabulous. Quick, polite, prompt, informative and just got on with the job. Thank you to the whole team.

Is it worth calling a plumber Wellington?

If you have a minor plumbing problem such as a leaky faucet that can be fixed easily, it might not be necessary to call a plumber. However, if you have a more complex plumbing issue like a broken pipe or a clogged sewer line, it is best to call a professional plumber to ensure that the problem is fixed properly and safely. Attempting to fix certain plumbing issues yourself could potentially cause more harm than good and lead to bigger and more expensive problems down the line.

Why You Should Call a Wellington Plumber Instead of Doing it Yourself

Get Peace of Mind – Call for one of our Plumbers near you Now.

Firstly, plumbers have the necessary expertise, skills, and experience to diagnose and fix plumbing problems in an efficient and effective manner. Plumbers have the tools and equipment needed to get the job done right the first time, and are familiar with local building codes and standards. Additionally, plumbing can be dangerous work and attempting to fix certain issues yourself could put you at risk of injury.

Trends in Plumbing, Gasfitting and Heating

Trends in Plumbing

Plumbing trends have evolved significantly in recent years, with a focus on both functionality and aesthetics. Homeowners are increasingly interested in eco-friendly plumbing solutions, such as low-flow fixtures and tankless water heaters, to reduce water and energy consumption. Smart plumbing technology is also on the rise, allowing for remote monitoring and control of water systems through smartphone apps. Additionally, the use of sustainable and recyclable materials for pipes and fixtures is gaining popularity as people become more environmentally conscious.

Trends in Gasfitting

Gasfitting trends reflect a growing emphasis on safety and efficiency. With advancements in gas detection technology, there is a greater awareness of the importance of regular gas line inspections and maintenance. Homeowners are also exploring alternative gas sources, such as natural gas and propane, for heating and cooking to reduce their carbon footprint. Moreover, the integration of smart thermostats and control systems in gas heating appliances is providing greater control and energy savings for consumers.

Trends in Heating

Heating trends are increasingly driven by energy efficiency and environmental considerations. High-efficiency heating systems, like heat pumps and geothermal heating, are gaining traction due to their ability to provide consistent warmth while reducing energy consumption. The incorporation of renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, into heating systems is becoming more common as people seek sustainable solutions. Additionally, zoned heating systems and radiant floor heating are being adopted for their ability to provide personalized comfort and reduce overall energy usage in homes and commercial buildings.
