The Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2015


The Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2015 is running this year from the Monday 16th November to Sunday 22nd November. This is the 10th year that the Carbon Monoxide Awareness Charity has organised the event.

The Carbon Monoxide Awareness Charity uses Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week to continue its fight to raise and keep awareness of both of the immediately dangerous as well as the long term effects of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

The common symptoms of CO poisoning are: headaches, nausea, dizziness, tiredness and confusion, stomach pain, difficult breathing and shortness of breath. These symptoms are very similar to having the flu or food poisoning however CO poisoning does not cause a fever. The symptoms typically become less serve when you are away from the source of the CO poisoning.

CO poisoning can and does kill, and where high levels are present death can occur within minutes. The RoSPA claims that there are 50 accidental deaths in the UK from CO poisoning per year with a least 1,100 recorded hospital admissions. Being exposed to smaller amounts of CO poisoning can lead to long term neurology, emotional and cognitive problems.

Fossil fuel (such as gas, coal, oil, LPG) burning appliances all have the potential to emit CO when appliances/systems are faulty or badly serviced. CO is known as the silent killer; you cannot smell it, see it, hear it or taste it. Unless a household has CO detectors in the house, if you have a leak of CO there is a chance you will not know until it is too late. If you notice your boiler pilot light flames turning to orange instead of blue, or sooty stains near your appliance, coal or wood fires going out or any family members suffering from any the symptoms above you must get your appliance checked by a qualified engineer right away.

To reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning you should:

-Have all of your gas appliances serviced by fully qualified gas engineers annually.

-If you have a chimney you should have it swept twice a year.

-Fit carbon monoxide detectors in your home and make sure that they are maintained. As of October 2015 landlords will be required by law to provide smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their properties.

T&S Heating supply and fit CO alarms, or if required, can fit your own CO alarm and ensure that they are in the most suitable locations in your home. T&S Heating engineers are fully qualified to service both domestic and commercial natural gas, LPG, oil, solid fuel boilers, cookers and fires so contact us today and get your appliances serviced.

T&S Golf Tournament



The T&S Golf Tournament was held at the superb Ramsadale Golf Club for its staff in September.

Office staff, management and engineers all took part in the fun evening and competitive evening. The talent ranged from amateurs who had not picked up a golf club in years to the professionals, who had to teach some people the basics, including how to hold the clubs!

The game lasted a good few hours and as the cold set in and the sun set everyone regrouped back at the Golf Bar for drinks and food. After tallying up everyone’s results it came as no surprise that Jamie won first place and took the trophy home. Lewis came second followed closely by Paul, who by considering his composure in the photographs thought that he should have done much better than third place! See our Facebook page for all of the photographs.

All round it was a good evening out for the T&S team and we will have to see if Jamie manages to hold onto his trophy at the tournament next year!

Worcester Bosch comes top of Which? survey


According to Which? Trusted Trader Worcester Bosch is ranked at the top of the best brands of gas fired boilers. Which? takes scores from customers who have had a new boiler fitted within the past 6 years and has asked them to rank their satisfaction of the boilers. Worcester Bosch is the only brand in 2014 to meet their Best Buy Benchmark.

Worcester has scored 79% reliability score and 89% customer satisfaction score taking them above Vaillant, Viessmann and Baxi and 8 other brands that are available on the market.

Worcester Bosch boilers are the make that are the mostly likely to not have a break down within the first few years. 49% of all boilers develop at least one fault within the first 6 years of installation compared with only 38% of Worcester Bosch boilers in the same time period. Ideal and Vokera boilers ranked at the bottom of the Which? Survey suggesting that although the boilers maybe cheaper than others, they are definitely not economical in the long run.

Celebrating 40 Years in Business!

Celebrating 40 Years in Business!

In 1973, Nottingham’s premier central heating business was founded by Malcolm Theakstone, and over the years it has grown to a large scale organisation offering services and installations all over the East Midlands. In 2012 T&S Heating fitted over 2,500 boilers and successfully completed contract work with 7 councils and local authorities. Despite the recent success of the business, T&S don’t wish to stand still. With the opportunity of moving into different home improvement sectors, they believe they will be offering a full range of maintenance services to customers in the region by autumn of 2013. From wetroom installations to garage conversions, T&S will be able to offer home improvement solutions at prices that you’ll struggle to beat.

In addition to developing the company, T&S also believes in supporting members of the general public in the surrounding areas. This led to the ‘In the Community’ scheme being set up in September 2012 where funding is issued to local groups and individuals who require financial assistance in achieving their goals. Paralympic gold medallist Ollie Hynd MBE, The ABF Soldiers’ Charity, and Long Eaton C.C. are a few of the parties that T&S have supported and will continue to support throughout 2013.
