Cooling & Heating Services offer a range of renewable technology products to our customers, specialising in heat pumps, Sunamp heat batteries and solar thermal installations. Having been involved with heat pump heating systems since 2010 we are well placed to offer the expertise and experience required to give impartial and honest advice for domestic and commercial installations.

Our service offering includes the design, installation and maintenance of renewable heating technologies across all leading manufacturers. Through our MCS partner we offer customers access to the Government Boiler Upgrade Scheme for householders, which can mean a £5000 grant towards the installation costs for those looking to replace their fossil fuel boiler with a heat pump.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a fridge or a freezer working backwards. Think about your fridge (or your freezer) at home, when the fridge is running the inside of the fridge is cold, yet feel the back of the fridge and it’s warm. That’s because the refrigeration process that’s taking place is removing the heat from within the fridge and moving it to the space outside of the fridge.

A heat pump is the same, it uses a refrigeration process to move heat from the outside air (if it’s an air source heat pump) or from the ground outside (if it’s a ground source heat pump) and then transfers that heat into the water which goes around your radiators or underfloor heating system.

Benefits of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps offer many benefits including:

Low carbon emissions

Lower running costs than LPG, Oil and direct electric heating

No gas supply required, so no standing charge

Can heat your home and provide hot water

Government grants available to lower installation costs

Low 5% VAT on installation costs for non new build projects

I contacted Phillip late one evening as we had managed to drill through a water pipe whilst putting up a shelf in our kitchen. He booked us in for a repair the following afternoon. Phillip was friendly and professional, he turned up on time, completed the work in 20 minutes to a very high standard and left our kitchen clean and tidy. Highly recommend and will definitely be using again for any future plumbing needs. Thank you!!

Personable, responsive and no messing about. Came fully prepared for the job -no popping out to get this and that. Left everything really tidy, and most importantly, fully functioning. A very reasonable price, too. I will be using them when the aged boiler finally gives up and for any other jobs that I might have the misfortune of needing done in the meantime! Thank you so much.

I can not recommend Phillip Metcalf highly enough. We needed an emergency plumber to fix a heating pipe I’d put a nail through. Phillip arrived within 40 minutes, promptly fixed it and offered suggestions for more efficient heating systems. He charged a very reasonable amount for this work. He also guided me through a repair on Christmas Day. First rate service, reliable and fair.

Excellent service from Phil and his fitter, Chris.
Phil ensured we got our boiler fitted quickly when we were left with no heating or hot water.
Chris, our fitter, was brilliant. Very professional and nothing was too much trouble.
Very reasonable price for work carried out.
Having been let down in the past by a few plumbers, we will definitely be using Phil again.
Highly recommend Philip Metcalf.

I came across Phillip Metcalf Ltd via the approved installer listing on the Sunamp heat batteries website and decided to appoint him for my installation after reading good reviews on Facebook and Google. He was professional and reliable throughout, providing clear and comprehensive information, and always turning up on time. His quality of workmanship is first class and he left everything really clean and tidy. I would happily recommend Phillip Metcalf Ltd to others and would have no hesitation using him again.
