Celebrating 40 Years in Business

In 1973, Nottingham’s premier central heating business was founded, 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.

For the latest news on the continued work the organisation is doing in the community, visit the T&S Heating blog to see all new posts.

T&S ‘In the Community’ Event

April 4th saw T&S Heating ambassador, Ollie Hynd MBE, attend an event at Long Eaton Cricket Club. Off the back of his glittering success at London 2012, Ollie brought his medals for the children of the cricket club to see, have their pictures taken with the athlete, and also take home a signed photo to remind them of the day.  The event started by Ollie giving a brief overview of his career to date, his disability, his success, and plans for the future. The children enjoyed a full lunch prepared by the Olive Pot in Long Eaton before finishing with a game of cricket.

Bath Lift, a Cheaper Option

Addressing mobility issues when bathing does not have to be time consuming, stressful or expensive. There are solutions out there other than getting a walk in bath or a walk in shower, one being a bath lift. Bath lifts are becoming more and more popular, and in this economic climate, the cheaper alternative to a walk in bath will continue to be purchased. So, if you are struggling to lift yourself in and out of the bath, but know any changes will have to be within budget, then a bath lift may be a suitable solution. Livsol are now supplying and fitting a bath lift for less than one thousand pounds.

 

Walk in baths becoming the norm

Throughout the UK more and more people are now deciding to have a walk in bath or a walk in shower installed in their homes, however not everyone has got a disability who are doing this. In particular, walk in showers are becoming increasingly popular due to their appearance and practicality, and if you consider that most new kitchens cost £7k plus, then a new wetroom averaging £5k from Livsol isn’t a bad price at all to completely transform a room. This was just a thought for you to consider if you are looking to revitalize a part of your home.

Livsol Making Waves

Due to the growth of disability bathrooms specialists Livsol, they are now fitting walk in baths, walk in showers and wetrooms nationwide. Originally operating in the East Midlands, the popularity of their services and product offering has led them to make a decision on expansion. A Livsol spokesman had this to say of the developing business; “It has certainly been a rapid change, but it is something we are relishing. Our referral scheme is working extremely well which shows our customers are more than happy with the work we do. As always we look to improve in all departments in order to give the best possible service and achieve 100% customer satisfaction.”

Livsol are well on course to becoming the market leader for disabled bathrooms. We will be keeping you up to date with their progress.

Free boilers – no, seriously!

T&S Heating launch ‘In the community’ scheme

2012 saw the launch of our “In the Community” scheme. This is a way the company could engage with local organisations and offer financial support in order for them to achieve their goals. We work tirelessly with the likes of; Gedling and District Bowls Club, Thoresby Bowls Club, Heanor Town FC, Ashfield Rovers FC and Long Eaton Cricket Club throughout their respective sporting seasons. Projects such as “The Big Dig” with Nottingham in Bloom and community centre volunteering are also important activities we like to get involved in. This is our way of showing how much our local community means to us and no matter how large T&S is or how big it may become in the future; we will never forget our roots.

Long Eaton CC

“We have always wanted to give something back to the area where it all began for us.  We are very passionate about the local community and are always looking to create success stories. By developing these partnerships, we feel we are helping the clubs during their exciting development.”

Ollie teams up with T&S Heating and T&S Homecare

With the excitement of London 2012 now behind us, our Mansfield athletes are reflecting on what can only be described as a magnificently successful games. With medals flowing for Olympic and Paralympic athletes, it is now time for them to reap the well deserved financial and commercial rewards for their success.

Oliver Hynd, or as we know him, Ollie, is one of the athletes to be inundated with enquiries about his availability for commercial work. The triple Paralympic medallist from Kirkby-In-Ashfield has recently signed a 12-month contract with Nottingham firm T&S Heating and will work with their new “In the Community” department with the aim of giving something back to the local area. One of his main duties in this role will require Ollie to visit to schools to talk to pupils about his experiences in sport and in life.

These are exciting times for the swimmer as companies work hard to maximise on his commercial desirability. It has been non-stop for Ollie since he collected his medals in London both in and out of the pool. He had this to say on his new ambassadorial role:

“It is a great opportunity to help children in the area who may not be aware of how beneficial sport can be to them. Thankfully companies like T&S are putting together these schemes and I am hopeful it will encourage people to get involved in something new. For me personally it certainly helps as the support I receive from sponsorship allows me to concentrate solely on swimming and my development. I need to build on the success in London, so the hard work starts now for the World Championships next year in Canada.”

Nottingham business sees sales grow at the start of 2013

Although it is still early days, 2013 has already proved to be a year where people are adapting their bathrooms rather than putting up with uncomfortable and impractical facilities. So, why is there a sudden change in peoples’ mentality? Livsol managing director, Lee Theakstone attempts to shed some light on the topic.

“If one of our customers is having difficulty using their bathroom, there are only a couple of choices they have to remedy the issue. They can relocate to a private property with better designed bathing faculties, or maybe pay for a home help nurse to assist them. However the cost of both of these can be extremely high, and in this economic climate, people are reluctant to spend unnecessarily. This is why we believe the mobility friendly bathroom market is growing year on year as it is a cheaper, quicker and more sustainable solution to problems customers may be having.”

Mr. Gould from Nottingham struggled to climb into his bath, therefore making washing himself extremely uncomfortable and in some cases impossible. After getting home help to assist him with washing, he saw the cost continue to rise and the financial pressures become too much. Mr. Gould decided he needed a solution that was going to cost him a fraction of the home help fee. Mr. Gould picks up the story.

“My biggest fear about getting a walk in shower was the cost. I was worried that I would not be able to fund it all in one go, and the only alternative would be to try and get a bank loan. However, when I called Livsol, they told me I could go on their finance scheme. This was a huge load off my mind and the £43 per month I would pay for it was a lot less than the amount I was paying for a helper, and to know  the whole thing would  be paid for within 5 years was an added bonus. I love my shower and would certainly encourage people to consider this solution if you have problems with bathing like I did.”

The popularity of these facilities is constantly increasing as more people have them installed and are recommending them to friends and family. After reading this piece and you feel you would benefit from having a and walk in shower or bath installed, please call Livsol free on 0800 656 9998 or email them on sales@livsol.co.uk . Their experienced assessors and engineers will work closely with you and offer the best solutions for your individual needs.
