Ground Source Heating Slinky CollectorsThe work carried out on our house by Wheildon’s last year was of an outstanding quality.

We were kept informed at every stage of the operation. The trench digging and installation of the slinkies was done quickly and efficiently – and a year on there is no evidence of any disturbance to the land around us! We required our boiler house to be demolished and replaced: this was done in such a way that it fits well with the look of our home. It is amazing that so much has been done to our property without leaving any evidence of that huge amount of work.

Solar Water HeatingThere was also a lot of work internally with pipes and tanks etc. The men who worked in the house were always kind and courteous, and very efficient in what they did. My wife, who was working from home at that time, was only minimally disturbed by the work that had to be done in the house, which is remarkable given the extensive nature of the task.
The after care service we have received has been excellent. The fine-tuning of the system was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Roger and Mick, in particular, have been very good about keeping us informed about the most efficient use of the new system.

We are delighted with our new heating, and very pleased with the excellent service provided by Wheildons. We heartily recommend this company to anyone who is considering renewable energy systems.

Thank you all very much.
