How to avoid be­ing mis-sold

My top ten tips

The Arran Banner - - News - By Nor­man Pater­son DipDEA

Choos­ing a re­new­able heat­ing sys­tem is a big de­ci­sion. Pos­si­bly the most im­por­tant one you will make for your home. So it makes sense to do your re­search in your own time and don’t al­low any­one to pres­surise you into mak­ing a quick de­ci­sion. We are lucky in Scot­land. We have the En­ergy Saving Trust who pro­vide free im­par­tial ad­vice along with in­ter­est free loans. They and the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment are very sup­port­ive of the re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­try. And are only a phone call away. So, the first thing I would rec­om­mend when look­ing into a new heat­ing sys­tem for your home is to them a call on 0808 808 2282. I be­lieve choos­ing a new heat­ing sys­tem is one of the most im­por­tant de­ci­sions you will make. You will be liv­ing with it long after the job has been com­pleted. For me the first visit to your home is sim­ply a fact find­ing ex­er­cise. There will be lots of mea­sur­ing and pho­tograph­ing. And you will prob­a­bly have a lot of ques­tions I can an­swer. Be wary of any­one who can price up a new cen­tral heat­ing job dur­ing a visit. It takes me a good num­ber of hours back at the of­fice to do this ac­cu­rately. On av­er­age I see clients four times from the start to the end of the project. This gives them one point of main con­tact through­out the process. If you are un­happy with your present heat­ing sys­tem and I can be of any help I will be happy to drop in for a chat. I am on Ar­ran usu­ally twice a week. You can get me on 079 1234 6360.
