Waste Disposal Units
Waste Disposal Units are the best method of dealing with kitchen waste. The unit chops all food waste into a delicate mix with water disposed of down the drain.
The units are maintenance-free, self-cleaning and very cheap to run. We install waste disposal units and undertake repairs.
Saniflo’s are macerator units that grind toilet waste into a slurry before pumping away to the sewer. Toilets used to be installed on the same wall as the soil stack, which limited positioning.
Saniflo systems can pump waste at great distances, allowing the installation of a Toilet anywhere in your home. The loft, a spare cupboard, a spare room, even your garage, the options are endless.
We install and repair Saniflo systems.

Boiler Installation Service & Repair
TM Hughes & Son install service and repair all types and makes of Boiler we are also a Worcester Bosch Accredited company.
The Boiler is an essential household appliance. Anyone who has ever suffered a Boiler breakdown quickly realises how important it is after going without Heating and hot water for a few hours or even days.
We offer Boiler Installation Service and Repair. We install modern condensation Boilers, which are incredibly energy efficient.
We service your Boilers annually so they run efficiently and won’t break down, and if you are unlucky enough to suffer a Boiler breakdown, we can get an engineer out the same day to repair your Boiler.
All the new Boilers we fit condensing Boilers which run at 90-99% efficiency. (depending on the make and model) these modern boilers capture escaping heat and gasses, which is recycled to heat water.
Old Boilers can be very inefficient and can waste up to 40% of fuel, wasted money and not good for the environment. A new Boiler can significantly lower your fuel bills.
We can fit any make of Boiler whether they are gas, electric LPG or oil. All boilers will fall into the combination, system or regular category.
Combination Boilers are the preferred option for Boiler installations accounting for around half of all Boilers we install.
The Combi Boiler is a compact unit incorporating all working parts internally, a simple and efficient system that saves space.
System Boilers include a sealed cylinder that stores hot water to provide ample supply to homes with multiple bathrooms. We fit system Boilers in medium to larger sized homes. They take up more space than combi boilers as cupboards required for the hot water storage cylinder.
As it’s otherwise known, the regular or ‘traditional’ Boiler is a complex system that uses a storage cylinder, pump, and water tanks. The regular system takes up much space, so it is usually replaced with a combi or system Boiler. However, we still fit regular boilers in homes with traditional systems or need a large supply of hot water.
Once your new Boilers been installed, they will need servicing once a year for two reasons.
The first is to keep it clean and run smoothly and efficiently. Safety tests are also run.
The second is to validate the boiler warranty and any home insurance policies that cover boilers.
We service boilers of all ages, whether it was installed by us or someone else.
We have engineers on standby to attend Boiler faults or breakdowns, which are very common during the winter months.
We aim to have an engineer to your home within a couple of hours of calling. Our repair services include no call out charges.
We install service and repair water cylinders. If you’re having a new system Boiler installed, we can install a pressurised cylinder to work in conjunction with your new Boiler.
Alternatively, if you’re having a combination Boiler installed, we will remove the previous cylinder entirely as combination Boilers do not require cylinders.
We can service your water cylinder annually to ensure it’s safe and in full working order.
Central Heating Components
Our services cover all other central heating components such as radiators, valves, controls, pipes, pumps etc.
Power Flushing completely cleanses your central heating system, the inside of radiators, pipes, boilers, pumps valves. Every component deals with flowing water.
Over several years, your system will build up with sludge, a mud type substance that’s made up of broken down debris such as limescale and rust.
The sludge collects in the system and accumulates. After a while, your system will become inefficient, and radiators won’t heat fully. The result is your Heating costs more to run and is not as efficient as it used to be.
Power Flushing solves this problem by clearing your system of all sludge. Chemicals and water are pumped through the system until it is clear. Afterwards, your radiators will heat fully, and all working parts will run smoothly. You’ll likely notice a drop in your heating bills also.
We install wet and electric Underfloor Heating systems. The wet system includes pipes and insulation that run under the floor.
The pipes draw hot water from the Boiler, circulated under the floor around the room, heating the entire space.
An electric system involves heated coils and insulation, which produces the same effect.
Underfloor Heating can be fitted in any home with a wide range of solutions possible to work with any floor type.
We offer free no-obligation surveys for those wanting an underfloor heating installation and servicing and repairs for those with an underfloor heating system already installed in their home.
Gas Safety Inspections CP12
Our Gas Safe Registered engineers undertake landlords gas safety inspections and issue CP12 certificates.
Gas Safety Inspections and the accompanying CP12 certification is a legal requirement for landlords who must have the gas system in their rented property checked every 12 months or at the start of every new tenancy.
We’ll ensure your property is safe for your tenants, and if we find any issues, we can rectify them, so your property passes. We also send reminders before your next inspection is due, so you don’t miss the vital inspection.
Gas Fire Servicing
We service all types of gas fire, including Open Fronted Gas Fires, High-Efficiency Gas Fires, Outset Gas Fires, and all flue types, including Brick Chimney/Class One Pre-Fabricated and Pre-Cast.
Gas fire servicing ensures your fires clean and safe. A service record is included.
Please note we only service gas fires. We don’t repair them.
We offer a Gas Cooker connection service undertaken by Gas Safe Registered engineers. One of our team will connect your new gas cooker and ensure it’s working as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
We also disconnect old gas cookers. Never attempt a connection/disconnection yourself, it’s dangerous, a job for an experienced gas engineer. Our cooker installation service is swift and inexpensive.
