At Andrews Heat for Hire, we appreciate that government bodies are responsible for the upkeep of numerous buildings, ranging from town halls and council offices to libraries and museums. We also understand that heating systems within these buildings are subject to sporadic failure or breakdown; when this happens, we are here to help you. Seasonal temperature changes may also call for a rapid response, in order to keep your premises open to the public. Regardless of the situation, we’ve got it covered.

We have worked on projects for all kinds of public buildings, developing and installing heating hire packages in accordance with clients’ exact requirements. Whatever your needs, we can be relied upon to provide an instant remedy to the issue at hand. Our depots span the UK allowing us to pledge to be on your site within 4 hours of being contacted. Our specialist contact team will process your enquiry quickly and professionally, and can even advise you on the best course of action.

You may be in the process of carrying out maintenance on your own system, or require emergency assistance in the event of a breakdown. In either case we can accommodate your needs. None of our competitors possess a more comprehensive range of high performance, safe heaters, with our huge selection guaranteeing a cost-effective solution to your predicament.

All buildings open to the public are bound by Duty of Care regulations, ensuring that visitors are not imperilled to needless discomfort. At Andrews, we recognise that each type of building is subject to its own unique legislation with regards to heating requirements. We understand that temperature recommendations for libraries differ from bars and lounges, for instance. That’s why we are well-placed to offer you support when choosing heating units for your premises.

A cold environment is likely to deter people from attending or remaining within such premises. Local authorities have a responsibility to residents to keep museums, libraries and other public spaces fully operational. These buildings need to be sufficiently warmed in order to guarantee being utilised by those who desire to.

During the last 50 years, we have worked alongside government organisations and helped to maintain comfortable, warm temperatures across a spectrum of assignments. Our array of electric, gas-fired and oil-fired heaters ensures every feasible prerequisite is catered for, irrespective of the size and dimensions of your building. We will even send one of our expert technicians to conduct a no obligation site survey and guide you towards a solution.

Affordable warmth and hot water are absolute necessities where public housing is concerned. A reliable heating system is arguably the most important feature of buildings inhabited by families and the elderly. We understand that many tenants in social housing struggle with heating bills, and we pride ourselves on supplying affordable, temporary heat for hire.

At Andrews, we specialise in providing our equipment at short notice, keeping residents comfortable and suitably warm - particularly during the winter period. Our wide range of fume-free, portable heaters has been designed to the highest industry standards and can be quickly dispatched to any location in the UK. We endeavour to supply reliable and safe heat for hire seven days a week and offer a steadfast contingency package throughout the entirety of rental.

We also provide a specialist boiler hire service which allows us to deliver fully packaged temporary boiler plant rooms, to take over from existing boiler rooms during maintenance shut downs, upgrade works or in case of failure. For more information click here.

Whether you require an immediate solution to a system collapse, under capacity due to extreme weather conditions or you’re merely preparing for maintenance on your current system, we can assist you. To discuss what’s best for your situation, call us on 0800 211 611 or alternatively complete an enquiry form and one of our expert call team will follow up your query.
