Testimonials

"I recently had a new boiler installed as part of the Home Energy Upgrade Scheme. AP were very proactive in securing the work and provided a competitive quote. From the point we first contacted them to the installation being completed took less than two weeks. The installation team arrived promptly each day, were polite and most importantly keep any disruption to a minimum. In summary, if you want a company that does exactly what you want, when you want it then AP is for you."

"AP have recently installed a Worcester Bosch Condensing boiler for me which replaced an ageing combi. The installation was carried out under the requirements of the Bristol Home Energy Upgrade project and followed the rules of the 'Green Deal'. AP were well aware of both schemes and are registered as Green Deal Installers. This meant that their surveyor understood the process involved and what was required, so no long explanation from me was needed.

Invariably any replacement boiler would differ in size from the existing boiler and great care was taken to ensure that the new boiler would fit the existing gap, that the hole used by the existing flue could still be used and that the new boiler wouldn't protrude below the kitchen units. Their recommendation was to go for a compact boiler which still matched the heat output and flow rate of the existing, just far more efficiently! It was this attention to detail which ultimately meant I chose AP over the other quotes I received, all of which were very similarly priced.

On the day of the installation itself, two guys arrived at 8:30am, lay dust sheets down as they walked from the front door to the kitchen, refused a coffee and began work straight away. By 2:30 in the afternoon they had finished and were helping me complete the claim forms. It was an impressive volume of work they had to undertake including completely dismantling the existing boiler in-situ, enlarging the flue hole slightly, re-routing of various pipes and tapping into the under-sink drainage to meet the increased requirements of current building regulations.

I would certainly recommend AP to anyone considering taking advantage of the Bristol Home Energy Upgrade project or the Green Deal. They did a great job.

All the best for the future"

"I have used AP Electrical on two occasions now, once to install a new consumer unit, and once to fit new electrics in my bathroom. Each time I had excellent service. They fitted in the jobs at extremely short notice and I was extremely happy with the finished standard of work. Their electricians are friendly and courteous and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend!"

I would also like to highly praise the team that carried out the work. They were very helpful, polite and considerate. The standard of their work is excellent. They were also very hard working. A credit to your company.

"We are delighted with our solar panel install from the guys at AP.

True to their word, their service was first class from start to finish.

They were polite, friendly and very helpful throughout. Taking time to talk through the options available to us and explaining how we benefit from the Feed-in Tariff.

Their friendly staff took real pride in their work, making sure the panels were installed without a hitch.

Thanks to AP we are now being paid to generate our own electricity and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone considering putting solar panels on their roof."

Mrs Sharp, Rumney, Cardiff

“We are delighted with the service we received from AP and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone considering installing solar panels on their roof.

Their honest and straight forward approach was most welcome.  We found their proposal very detailed and easy to understand. Their sound Technical knowledge stood out compared to the other quotes we received and their thorough survey (including a structural engineers report of the roof, gave us confidence we had chosen the right company.

They were prompt and efficient throughout. The panels were installed very efficiently by Ian and his team. A very neat and tidy job well done by a company who clearly take great pride in their work.

We are now generating our own electricity and would tell anyone considering solar panels to give AP a call.”

John Davies Ystrad Teifi, Llandysul

Everything was left clean and tidy when they finished, they even asked for the Hoover.

The installation was on time and done with the minimum of disruption, nothing was too much trouble to the team who installed the system. ”

"Please pass on my thanks & appreciation to all of your team who carried out fitting of the solar panels on Sunday 20/11/2011. They did a fantastic job.

I discussed the fitting with Gary on the previous day (who was working on a neighboring property) & he addressed all my concerns & put my mind at rest.

Rhys actually carried out the installation & he did a really professional job. All the cabling is concealed which is fantastic. My special thanks to him for the wonderful care that he took.

Any time that the men had to come in to the house they were so careful & considerate. I am absolutely delighted as all the team were exceptionally pleasant & courteous & a pleasure to have around.

Please also pass on my thanks to Paul who came to give me a quote & arrange fitting at very short notice & again was a pleasure to deal with. Also he suggested fitting the inverter in the garage rather than in the loft, which was a far more preferable option to me.

Finally thanks to you, Marc, in the office for being so helpful at what is a very busy time for you."

"I would just like to thank you for all your help and support during the recent selection and fitting of my Solar PV

The initial assessment and subsequent review visit from Paul was friendly and informative, whilst also very thorough. The information provided was very good and was extremely helpful in my choice of installation.

The actual fitting went very well, with the whole thing being completed in one day. The team of electricians and fitters were very polite and efficient, whilst also providing easy to understand explanations. Ian was the main contact and couldn’t have been more helpful.

Your personal support through the whole process was of great help to me and it was very reassuring to know that you and your colleagues were available to address any queries that arose.

The installation has been up and running for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. We are already seeing the reduction in mains electricity consumption through using our own generated power and therefore anticipate some significant reduction in our bills.

My electricity supplier (EDF) has processed my “FIT” application and I look forward to the first payments in respect of our generated units, as well as the return to Grid.

Thanks again for all your help with this"

Steve Morris, Brecon

"I would like to express my appreciation for the manner in which the installation of solar panels

was carried out at our home.

We had 12 solar panels installed at the end of June this year. With our gently sloping south-facing roof, power production during July has been between 2 and 3 times our consumption form the grid. While in winter months we'll still be net grid consumers, the forecast that we'll be an overall “green” electricity exporter, and that the installation will have paid for itself within 10 years, is entirely realistic.

Preparation for the work was admirable. There was an independent structural assessment, and an assessment of the work needed in relation to our existing facilities. On this basis the costing was drawn up and agreed. On completion of the work, no extra costs were involved.

Three days before installation, a contractor put up exterior scaffolding to give roof access. There was no disruption to the house interior. Then came the day for mounting the solar panels on the roof. The work was carried out amazingly efficiently. The team had a clear plan of action, and carried out much of the external work first, so that the run of the house from ground floor meter to loft was carried out very swiftly – within perhaps one hour. The debris from drilling through the walls was very minor, and the team cleaned up and were very courteous at all times.

Within three hours the work was completed. We were given a quick tour of the installation and the new meter, and a few “what if” scenarios (e.g. what to do for in cases of power outage) were discussed. The new meter showed power production had started immediately.

A few days later the scaffolding was removed, and then you paid us a visit to discuss any remaining issues (e.g. we were interested in how best to use the feed in tariffs), and payment to budget was completed by us. Your readiness to be contacted over any concerns we might have in the future was very reassuring. In fact, a month on, we have had no concerns whatever.

Our silent “roof resident” is bringing in a steady income (index linked, and guaranteed for 25 years). Surely this is a very sound investment – more profitable than the ISA we cashed in to finance the installation. Moreover, we have the lasting satisfaction of reducing our annual carbon footprint (by an estimated tonne or more).

It's been a pleasure to deal with your company. The courteous and efficient way in which you and your team carried out this high quality work is highly commendable, and we are very grateful, satisfied customers."

Sincerely,

Mr Holstein, Aberystwyth SY23 3AZ

"Hi Marc

Thank you for the commissioning pack which we received last night.

We have now returned the FIT forms so hopefully we will be in plenty to time to receive the 43p tariff.

The solar system is up and running and we did notice today that our meter was at one time going backwards!!

We would like to add that we were very impressed with the installation. All the interconnecting cables having been run via the cavity walls. All the team were extremely helpful and very professional.

We are very pleased that your company did the installation and would recommend you to others with the utmost confidence.

Many thanks"

"Thank you AP's for a quick and relatively painless experience(apart from handing over the cash!)

It was a pleasure dealing with you and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and colleagues who may be interested in solar power.

Overall I'm very pleased with the installation and must thank you again for being so easy to contact and quick to respond in dealing with any queries I had during the whole process.

Finally, thanks to Ian and the installation team who worked neatly and quickly to get the job done."

"Hi All,

Just a note to say how delighted we are with our solar panel installation. You made the whole experience easy from start to finish, and we must compliment you on your friendly prompt and efficient attention.

The installation itself took just over a day, and was carried out with the minimum of fuss and disruption. It has been very neatly installed and blends in with the roof well, So much so that we have been complimented on its appearance.

The system has been up and running now for three weeks and the output of the system seems well on track to meet the projected figures. The weather has not been good, since the installation, so that given some sunny days, output figures should exceed expectations. We have in fact generated almost as much electricity as we have used. It’s a pity we can’t store it!

Thanks again, and we would certainly recommend you to anyone who is considering solar panels."

"AP Electrical and Renewable Energy Ltd installed Solar PV cells on my roof. They were very knowledgeable on the technology and went to great lengths to explain everything beforehand and put my mind at rest on issues on which I had concerns. They were very competitive on price, had the appropriate skills and knowledge and installed the equipment efficiently and very effectively.

I would have no reservation in recommending them to others and have indeed passed their name and telephone number to friends and colleagues who have expressed an interest in this same technology"

"Just a big thankyou for completing our whole PV project in half the time. It will make a big difference to our tenants. I heard yesterday that HA's in Wales planned to deliver PV to 15000 homes, but only did 4000 because of the FIT changes. We did 100% of ours thanks to your guys.

Please pass on this message and have a good break."

"Hi. Just a couple of words of appreciation regarding your recent installation of a replacement boiler for me at my home.

I had recently come home from an operation and was not in a completely fit state to prepare for the installation, and one of your Team assured me that it was no problem, the boys would sort it for me, in fact the caller was quite insistent that I should not worry nor attempt to move anything.

The team you sent were excellent promoters of your friendly professional and value for money service, they arrived, introduced themselves, and started almost immediately. They moved the things I couldn't, and dismantled the Utility room, all with all care I would have done myself.

They installed the replacement boiler and ancillary timers and thermostats in a very clean and careful manner, there was minimal disruption to the household, water was only turned off for the minimum time needed, and to be fair, it was not even noticed. They then re-fitted everything they had removed, apart from the dust from behind the fittings, that they didn't put back, and Utility room was back as it was before they arrived.

I was very impressed by the knowledge of Nigel, the guy who came and gave me the quote, and his sensible guidance on what would best suit our installation, the lads that did the installation, and their skill and friendly professionalism, and of course I must not forget the Company's actual quote. I feel as if I have had some good kit, properly installed, and at a fair price. Definitely putting AP Electrical & Renewable Energy Ltd. on my first call list of trusted tradesmen.

Many thanks"

"Hello

Just a note to thank you for the tremendous job you've just completed at my son's house.

It is always with some trepidation that I commit myself to accepting a quote for an expensive item, such as a boiler replacement, from a company I don't know.However, your quote was extremely competitive and, in addition, your representative, Nigel, was extremely knowledgeable and concerned to ensure that he fully understood my requirements and that I knew precisely what was needed and going to be supplied.

Following a full explanation by Nigel I received a detailed itemised written quotation.

I did have other much more expensive quotes and one which was cheaper. None of these other quotes were supplying the same standard of equipment so I decided to go with your firm as Nigel promised that your levels of customer service would meet my requirements.

In the event your two fitters were exemplary in all respects. They were punctual, competent and professional.

They worked efficiently and to the highest possible standards and left the premises in a cleaner state than when they started!

Your customer service did not just meet my expectations, it exceeded them.

Please give my thanks to Nigel, your two fitters and all others in the back office who contributed to a job done so well.

I look forward to a long association with your company as you undertake regular maintenance in the future.

Many thanks"

Geoff Morgan

"Dear Nigel

Just a note to say thankyou to you and your team (Reese, Keith & John) for the excellent job they did in the removal & replacement of the central hearing system in my mother in law's house.

Once the report has said that the old system had failed completely and that a full new system was suggested.

We knew how difficult this was going to be as my 90 year old mother in law needed to stay in the house whilst this work was being carried out.

Following your survey you gave us confidence that this would be possible.

The work was carried out in a professional & competent manor by the team, completed on time and to schedule.

My mother in law was able to return to her home in the evenings and not know any work had been done.

Many thanks for companies efforts, we would not hesitate to recommend your company to other potential customers.

Many thanks"
