We listen carefully to what customers tell us - you're the best people to help us make changes for the better. Here's the latest in our regular round-up of some of the things you've said, and what we've done as a result:
We did: We’re introducing progress updates using text messaging to keep you up to date at each step of the way so you know exactly when the issue will be resolved. These messages will be implemented early in 2020.
You said: That when upgrading the heating in your home the new heating controls can be difficult to use, and that means you can’t get the most out of it.
We did: We’re creating easy-to-use instructions that we’ll be giving customers whenever new heating is installed to help you know how to use your new heating.
You said: That once we’ve installed new heating, we should ensure any issues identified on our inspection are fixed as soon as possible.
We did: We’ve made changes to the process that will see us resolve small issues during the final inspection and we’ll book any follow-up work with you so you know when we’ll return to resolve any issues.
You said: That when upgrading boilers in your home the boiler should be boxed in.
We did: We’ve now made the boxing-in of boilers standard as part of our boiler upgrade works.
You said: That sometimes when you report a repair that can be complex to resolve, there are too many appointments required to fix the problem.
We did: We’ve implemented new processes that track your repairs if more than one appointment is required to ensure we fix the issue as efficiently as possible. We’ve also put in place a new Technical Care team who will carefully manage complex repairs and ensure they get done right first time.
