Valor is hunting down zombies – and it’s asking for help. The gas fires company is after ‘zombie gas fires’; appliances using outdated technology that refuse to die. If you’ve worked on a Valor or Robinson Willey gas fire that is 20 years old or more, let them know – and you could win a prize for you and your customer.
Valor calculates that upgrading from an old gas fire to a modern one could save more than £150 a year in running costs, while delivering greater comfort, improved control and a safer appliance.
The company reckons there could be 4 million working gas fires more than 20 years old, whose owners are missing out on greater control over the flame output, a choice of controls, enhanced testing and safety, installation flexibility and a wider choice of designs.
Tracey Falshaw, marketing manager, says: “There is a real opportunity to drive business through the upgrade of ageing decorative gas fires from the 1980s and 1990s. We know that a large number of homeowners and private landlords are willing to stick with outdated gas appliances simply because they are still working.”
Just email your name and telephone number with a photograph and details of the Valor or Robinson Willey gas fire you have worked on (including model number and date of installation). Put “I found a zombie!” in the subject line and email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
One gas engineer chosen at random will win a ‘zombie apocalypse’ experience for them and four friends, worth £500, and their customer will receive a new gas fire from the Valor collection, worth up to £500.
