London, UK (PRWEB) October 24, 2009
Requests for online quotes for heating engineers has increased by 65% since the beginning of 2009, according to Boilerguide, the UK's leading online resource for home owners and heating engineers regarding all boiler-related issues.
Established in 2008, Boilerguide has been a witness to a huge influx in home owners seeking quotes from engineers, indicating that home owners are moving towards the internet as the primary means for sourcing heating engineers.
It's also proof that home owners are wise to the fact that getting a boiler serviced isn't necessarily a job for the winter when, if left without central heating and hot water, can be a particularly uncomfortable couple of days.
David Holmes, Founder of Boilerguide, commented: "We naturally expected to see a rise in requests coming into this month as October marks the final month before the weather generally takes a turn for the worse and consequently, home owners are keen to have their boiler serviced so that any potential implications can be corrected.
"However, there has been an increase month on month since the beginning of the year that not only shows the growing importance of online directories but, is also great news for heating engineers as it indicates that their workload isn't season which, in the past, it very often has been."
Boilerguide is free for home owners to source engineers in their vicinity and, for heating engineers themselves, the site is free to join with them only having to pay a minimal charge to receive lead information.
With articles providing advice regarding boiler costs, repairs, servicing and the latest boiler technology, Boilerguide allows homeowners to make informed and educated decisions when it comes to employing engineers or selecting a new boiler all together.
David continued: "Indeed, there is so much information out there in relation to the types of boilers available, it can be a daunting task for many home owners. Consequently, we try to make it as simple as possible, cutting out any jargon so that everyone knows their condensing boilers from their Worcester boilers.
