Faulty Underfloor Heating Repairs

To take care of their faulty underfloor heating repairs, many homeowners often contact third-party companies who sell themselves as specialists in their field. However, their lack of experience or credentials can result in the underfloor heating – and even your existing floor – suffering from irreparable damage.

Unfortunately, some engineers have a lack of knowledge and equipment, failing to use the correct repair methods which exacerbate faulty flooring; this can be both frustrating and costly for the customer.

At UFH Services Ltd, we are a family-run, professional company with fully trained and qualified in-house, specialist engineers. We hold a BS 7671 2017 iEE Wiring Regulations Certificate and a CSCS card for working on construction sites to ensure complete safety, and nothing is subcontracted out to a third-party company. Using the latest technology, we will identify the fault with your failed underfloor heating within just a few centimetres and will refrain from disrupting or removing any floor finishing until we are 100% positive of our findings.

Inexperienced engineers can sometimes cut corners, an example of which would be to repair a faulty wire by just twisting the cable ends back together, then taping the joint with electrical tape. Another example is removing the safety earth entirely to stop the RCD tripping. Findings of these incorrect connections being used and substandard repairs make for a very unsafe environment at home.

By coming to us, there is no risk of unfinished projects or rushed jobs – we won’t leave your property until you are completely satisfied with our work. When giving us a call, we will ask you a few basic questions to try and gather as much information about the fault and your heating system as possible. If you are unable to answer any of these questions, our wealth of experience means we will still be able to help. Give us a call today and we’ll make light work of your project.
