Who are Heatable?
Heatable is the product of two brothers from Warrington, Cheshire. A driven start-up company in 2017, and now a huge player in the heating industry they have helped to revolutionise.
Sam is the ‘techie’ and runs the online side of the business, heading up the web development team. Ben is the one with heating industry expertise, so looks after companies’ installation outfit.
Despite only entering their forth year and having no formal links to any of the big boiler manufacturing or installation giants, Heatable have gone from strength to strength, proving that the boiler industry can be dragged in the 21st century – and done so well.
On the Heatable website, they proudly provide links to their TrustPilot page – now boasting over 2,500. There are plenty of review sites for boiler installation providers but the most comprehensive is Trustpilot.
Here, Heatable have an impressive 4.9/5 TrustScore with 97% of people rating the service as either Great or Excellent.
It’s an impressive endorsement, especially for such a young company and testament to the high levels of customer service they offer. It also suggests that Heatable has an extremely bright future.

Using HEATABLE to get quotes, purchase your new boiler, and even getting it installed is remarkably quick and easy.
1. Firstly, you will need to visit their beautifully designed and user-friendly website. Enter your postcode and you will be prompted to answer a simple series of questions about your property and heating system.
Don’t fret, the questions are super simple and most importantly ask what type of boiler you have at present, how your flue exits your property, and your house type and size. Example images and sketches are on hand to help.
*This online questionnaire is acting as your survey, meaning less appointments of people in your home and more time and money saved!
2. Heatable will then generate a list of recommended boilers for your home, based on your previously answered questions so you can rest assured they’re all suitable.
3. Your prices displayed on screen are fixed and fully inclusive of installation and VAT. Monthly payment options will also be displayed, with on screen calculators to help you work out a viable pay monthly plan if you prefer.
4. Once you’ve chosen a boiler, your price is fixed with no extras or hidden charges.
