|The client contacted ATG Boiler Installations requesting a whole system conversion, mainly due to the parts for their old boiler becoming obsolete. Their requirements were a cost effective and economical heating system for their family home.|
|First steps were to visit the clients with the old boiler in situ, to gather some more information from the customer, survey the level of work required to ensure an accurate quote. I discovered that the new boiler would need relocating and a new gas supply. The customer also requested installation of 8 new radiators at the same time. A quote was devised detailing all costings and expected timescales for completion.|
