London Gas Services was the winner of Wolseley Plumb Center’s 2017 Zombie Boiler Twitter competition.
Wolseley Plumb Center wanted to raise awareness of inefficient ‘zombie’ boilers and their costs to homeowners – as well as the effects they can have on the environment. Taking out the ‘warming dead’ with the most zombie boiler slays, London Gas Services won four tickets for a Zombie Infection experience.
The company’s Gary Mellor says: “We come across far too many zombie boilers on jobs and I think it’s really important that the public and my customers understand why sometimes it’s better to replace rather than repair. Ignoring an inefficient boiler will only lead to further problems down the line, including costly breakdowns and higher energy bills – as well as polluting the atmosphere.”
Drew Styles from Styles Plumbing was the runner-up for getting the most retweets of his slays, and won himself some new workwear.
Wolseley category director, Heating and Renewables, Richard Harvey says: “We want to support heating engineers and UK homeowners to get rid of these old and decrepit boilers. Inefficient boilers and the threat they pose are being talked about more and more. To see so many Zombie Boiler entries from installers across the UK is fantastic and we hope to see even more wiped out – until they’re gone for good.”
