Repair visits show that many heating systems are not operating efficiently
and significant savings in running costs can be achieved when control
equipment is set up and operating correctly.
During a service visit all aspects of the installation are inspected
including the health and safety implications and integrity of the
construction in which heating cables are embedded. Switchgear and associated electrical equipment is thoroughly
checked, minor faults are rectified, faulty service items replaced and the
control equipment is reset. The
danger of the installation failing to operate or failing in a constantly “on”
situation is greatly reduced and running costs are kept to the minimum.

Following the service visit a comprehensive report
is prepared with all readings listed and advising of any necessary repairs or
health and safety requirements.
Further energy saving recommendations together with an analysis report
are also included where appropriate, detailing modifications to the system
that would improve efficiency.
Considerable savings in running costs can be made by fitting modern
energy controllers and upgrading switchgear.

Energy saving analysis
Where heating cables have been found to be damaged
repair work can be undertaken quickly, with little disturbance to normal
activities. Areas of excavation and
repair are reduced to a minimum (approximately 200x100mm) using a variety of
sophisticated fault locating equipment and the surfaces are reinstated during
the same visit.

As further insurance for the customer the service
visit contract also provides an emergency backup for the remainder of the
heating season at a special reduced rate call‑out charge and includes
free service items. For a small
additional charge an optional Switch-Off service is provided at the end of
the heating season for customers who have no basic cover at their sites.

- for new clients a customer health and safety maintenance file is provided
for the site containing the current report and where possible copies of specification
sheets and drawings of the installation.
A maintenance record sheet, to be updated at each future visit, is
also prepared for the site.
- a one‑off service visit to site to carry out a complete overhaul of
the installation includes a full report and health and safety maintenance
file. The visit charge also includes
minor service items to the value of £15 and a low rate call‑out charge,
as shown on the contract, applies for the remainder of the heating
season. Alternatively, the contract
can be renewed each year on a regular basis completely at the discretion of
