Welcome to Entwistle Plumbers website

We are a long established family business covering all aspects of plumbing and heating work. Founded in 1962 we bring our experience to every job that we undertake. We have built up an impressive list of loyal clients who trust our professional approach, knowing that they can be assured of excellent workmanship. All products and materials used are of high quality. Both our commercial and domestic clients can be sure our service is of the highest standard.

We carry full public liability insurance that will cover costs in the unlikely event of any damage being caused during an installation. Without this insurance, the customer would be fully responsible for damage to their own home and injury to any person carrying out the improvements.

We are Gas Safe 8060 and Oftec C8009 registered: Don't be tempted to settle for less.

Boiler Installation:

Our company is accredited to the Worcester-Bosch Installer Scheme and as such offer the Worcester range of boilers to many of our clients. However if we consider that a Worcester boiler is not the most suitable for a particular job, we can alternatively offer from the Vaillant or Keston boiler range or indeed from any manufacturer.

Underfloor Heating:

After many years experience of installing underfloor heating systems, we now recommend Nu-Heat Underfloor Systems and have become an accredited installer of the Nu-Heat products. However should a client have a particular preference for sourcing from another manufacturer we are willing to install those as well

Solar Panels/Air & Ground Source Heating Pumps:

As part of our company's commitment to the Environment and using the latest technology where applicable, some of our engineers are trained in the installation of these items. Our experience to date is on installations using products from the Worcester-Bosch and Nu-Heat ranges of products.

Commercial Sub-Contract Work:

We work with a number of locally and nationally known prestigious construction company's based in and around the Manchester area. Due to our working principles described below, we continue to enjoy repeat business from them.

Work Ethics:

Our company principle is to only price for and accept jobs that we know are within our capabilities and also within an approximate 25 mile radius of Manchester. In this way we ensure that we provide our clients an effective service and good quality work.
