Pricing and Ethics

A firm belief in clear, upfront charging and highly competitive rates is held by Selectric Heating and offered to all customers.

At Selectric Heating we keep it simple: our charges are fair; we purposely rein in our overheads and don’t glorify our service offering with gimmicks or giveaways.

Electric Heating Estimates

In most cases, estimates are provided in writing and are free of charge except in the case of out of hours emergency call out work, which is fully chargeable. There will also be a minimal and fair charge made for attending to provide a quote where there is a cost to us, for example parking fees or the Congestion Charge. Estimates are always conducted during the hours of daylight.

For larger projects exceeding the sum of approximately £10,000, a fixed fee of £200 plus VAT is charged to cover the time elements involved with numerous site visits and the preparation of an extensive written estimate.
