At Andrews Boilers, we have a wealth of experience working with educational establishments nationwide. In recent years we have developed and installed boiler packages across a plethora of environments, with your individual requirements always our primary consideration. Whether you’re planning upkeep in the near future or suffering the crippling effects of a breakdown, we are on hand 24 hours a day to guide you back towards full productivity.

As the UK’s leading contractor of hired boiler equipment, we have an unrivalled level of expertise when it comes to combatting issues with heating or hot water. By developing a close relationship with many education establishments and local authorities, we have nurtured a fantastic understanding of what schools and education facilities need. With the country’s most extensive range of electric, oil fired and natural gas fired boilers in stock across our depot network, we guaranteed to respond to your call within four hours.

Before deploying a replacement system on your premises, we will send an engineer to conduct a free site survey at a time convenient to you. This allows us to gain a better perception of what you require and subsequently provide the most appropriate solution available. If you’d like us to assess your premises or you simply desire more information about how we can help you, call us now on 0800 211 611.

Classrooms, libraries and other areas for study must be sufficiently warm at all times - particularly during the winter months. Education Regulations state that all school buildings should be capable of maintaining a minimum temperature of 18 oC when in use. If this requirement is not met then teachers and pupils are entitled by law to withdraw themselves from the vicinity, which underlines the overall importance of a functional boiler.

We appreciate that system faults can occur sporadically, and often when you least expect it, which is why we offer a no obligation free site survey. As the UK’s most reputable provider of specialist hire equipment, you can rely on us to deliver and install workable solutions to any conceivable problem. Our quick response to emergency breakdown ensures we keep schools open wherever possible - this is unique to Andrews Boiler Hire.

Andrews are often called upon to provide temporary boilers for University campus projects, such applications can occur during the refurbishment of the building or to by-pass existing boilers during maintenance or whilst replacement units are being installed.

Maintaining a warm environment during a cold period is absolutely imperative for a number of reasons. Concentration levels dwindle and output generally drops when internal conditions are not conducive to studying, which in turn can have wider implications for the long term. We take our responsibilities very seriously, particularly when the welfare of young people is at stake, which is why we are your sector’s number one choice for temporary boiler units.

As well as classrooms, changing facilities in schools also need appropriate hot water provisions for their showers and basins. An inefficient boiler will leave water cold and uninviting, effectively rendering shower blocks pointless and unused. At Andrews, our unparalleled proficiency in supplying units of required capacity to virtually any environment means we are capable of both recommending and commissioning a temporary solution for your application.

We regularly provide temporary boilers for Universities and Colleges throughout the UK. These units are used to provide temporary hot water to lecture facilities, sports complexes, halls of residence, accommodation blocks or whole campus installations.

Prior to installing any equipment, our technicians engage in a meticulous preparation process whereby the immediate and future demands of your building are highlighted and scrutinised. This allows us to make plans for potentially forthcoming changes and ensures any system we deploy is powerful enough to cope with these alterations further down the line. By designing and implementing adaptable packages, we guarantee to have all feasible needs covered throughout the entirety of rent.

By using our services your education facility will benefit from a number of factors not offered by other hire companies. Same day delivery and a 24 hour contingency amenity guarantee our clients receive round-the-clock support, whether that is fuel management or technical assistance. To arrange a no obligation site survey, or simply discuss an impending assignment with a trained consultant, call us on 0800 211 611.
