Fuel-efficient and affordable, they are frequently tested and cleaned prior to dispatch and easily deployed once present on your site. By continually investing in boiler technology and our staff, we guarantee to always offer clients the optimum levels of service you have come to expect.

With an expansive depot network spanning the entire country, we are capable of providing immediate assistance to all businesses nationwide. Our sales technicians and expert consultants are available 24 hours a day, making us one of the few specialist hire companies to provide genuine round-the-clock support. Whether you require an instant boiler replacement or a recommendation towards an appropriate action plan, our professional staff are on hand to help.

Nowadays, underfloor heating is becoming increasingly common place in newly-constructed buildings and properties. Hidden away and out of view, this alternative negates the need for radiators while evenly distributing heat - therefore warming a room just as efficiently. Another benefit of having pipework underneath your floor is the fact that heat naturally gravitates upwards, ensuring that a whole room feels the effects of its presence and not just the top half.

We strive to promote business continuity at all times, so during the construction process we supply temporary boilers connected to existing underfloor pipework to dry out screed and concrete at a desired temperature and time with the added effect of the heat radiating into the area to assist in drying out for finishing trades. Our expert technicians and advisors are always on standby to visit locations anywhere in the UK, meaning alternative equipment can be delivered to your premises shortly after initial contact. We also offer customers no obligation site surveys which help our engineers provide you with the hot water boiler package most suitable for your application and budget.

Prior to installing and commissioning a boiler, we undertake a rigorous planning process whereby the immediate and future demands of your environment are considered. Every solution we recommend and subsequently deploy is powerful enough to cope with feasible change in circumstances, with necessary adaptations easily implemented should the need arise.

In the construction industry especially, concrete batching is a vital process which requires precise conditions and temperatures in order to be effectively carried out. Reliable hot water supply, and therefore a high capacity boiler, is needed to combine cement, water, sand and other components of concrete mixture. Without this provision, the mixture will not set properly or be fit for its intended purpose - underlining the importance of correct, functional equipment for essential building procedures.

In recent years, Andrews Boilers have worked on a broad range of construction projects, meaning we have the skill and proficiency to oversee even the most delicate assignments. This experience has helped us understand the potentially crippling implications of deficient units, with everyday practices such as mixing concrete wholly dependent on a constant heat source. That’s why we respond to your call within a four hour time window, allowing your business and process to proceed even when uncontrollable factors threaten to cause disruption.

For more information on our products and services, or to discuss any upcoming requirements with our professional contact team, call us on 0800 211 611. We pride ourselves on supplying clients with the most cost-efficient remedy to boiler failure or maintenance, and offer you unrelenting assistance throughout the duration of hire. With temporary units available irrespective of demand, our rapid response ensures productivity does not falter in the face of adversity.
