February Customer of the Month: I in Merseyside’s Wheelchair Ramp

Posted by on Feb 8, 2017 in Case Studies, Spotlight | 0 comments

I is a wheelchair user who lives in Merseyside. Getting in and out of the house required the help of another person due to the step up to the front door or having to open the gate to go around the back. With the drive space that I had, Primus came in to install a ramp so that there was unaided wheelchair access to the front door.

The Nest Learning Thermostat – Now Available from Primus

Nest is the brighter way to save energy, reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your energy bills. And now, the Nest Learning Thermostat is available through Primus.

The Nest Learning Thermostat doesn’t require any programming like other thermostats, simply turn up and down when you want to – even remotely from your phone, tablet or computer – and Auto-Schedule takes note of the times you have it on and off to be able to do it for you. An Auto-Away button pauses this schedule so that you don’t heat an empty home while you’re away.

You can take full control of your heating and hot water from wherever you are, check the history to see when the most energy is being used to be able to save even more money, and know that you’re doing the best thing for the environment and your pocket in regards to your heating! It’s even got one eye on the weather, so it’ll know if it’ll need to give you an extra heat boost when you come in from the snow or the hail.

Available in 4 different colours to suit even the pickiest decorators, and with a stand if you don’t want to fix it to your wall, what are you waiting for? Call Primus now on (01695) 737328 to get a price for installation for your Nest Learning Thermostat.

Also coming soon to Primus, the Nest Cam, for your security and peace of mind.

Do you know where to put your CO alarm?

So you’ve been down to your local DIY store and splashed out to keep you and your family safe. Your new CO alarm is sat in its packaging, with the fixings ready, waiting to be put up. It’s an audible one, so it’ll wake you up if there is a CO escape at night. It complies with British Standard EN 50291 and carries either a British or European approval mark such as the Kitemark. The battery will last for the lifetime of the alarm – 7 to 10 years depending on make and model – or it will let you know if you have to change the battery. You’ve got one for every fuel burning appliance in your property, and extra ones for your bedrooms, ready to put up. But, where exactly?

He wanted a temporary fix so that his kitchen walls wouldn’t suffer permanent damage, followed by a permanent repair. After all of the work was finished, T also received a roof report with information about the exact problems we’d encountered, and what we had done.

A and J are warm at last – replacement boiler Skelmersdale

We had a lovely “unseasonably mild” December last year, followed by mother nature getting her own back on us with a cold snap in January. With this erratic use, your boiler might not have known what was going on, and it seems like for A and J in Skelmersdale, their boiler decided to give up the ghost and their heating was working erratically and the hot water not working at all. They’d been having problems for a while and it wasn’t workable anymore. Their landlord got in touch with us to see what we could do to get things sorted.
