Central heating

Central heating

Bring your existing control system up-to-date. Install thermostatic valves and zone valves. Fit clever ancillaries to keep lime scale to a minimum, such as magnetite filters which remove iron ferrites and reduce electrolytic action. This can save as much as 20% on...

Heat recovery units

Heat recovery units

These can be great cost savers and are also useful for controlling condensation. Units can service one room or the whole house. Some units boast up to 90% recovery!



Thoroughly insulate the loft. Avoid the cheapest option because you’ll get exactly what you pay for. Also, consider how you’re using your loft and whether you will be over boarding.

Ceiling fans

Ceiling fans

These can keep air moving and distribute heat evenly. Leave them on a slow moving setting. They can be effective though some people think they’re ugly.

Replaced Garage

Robert and the team replaced my old garage (with an asbestos roof) with a very nice larger garage. Everything was done when they said it would be. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely use Tiffin again.

Barbara, Hertfordshire

Highly Recommended

Robert Tiffin successfully diagnosed and treated the increasing damp in the cellar of our old house, something several previous firms had failed to do. He was professional and efficient and provided an excellent report.

Susan, Middlesex

Excellent Work

Tiffin handled all the aspects of the job really well, keeping us informed and sourcing high quality materials. They did a good job of organising all the various trades to do their parts in an efficient manner.

Matt P, Buckinghamshire

Professional and polite service, fair and reasonable price

The “Tiffin difference” was immediately noticeable. We were left with a strong sense that Robert and the team were professional and reliable in their approach. We will be using Tiffin for our next project.

Craig R, Hertfordshire

Unhesitatingly Recommended

Robert Tiffin is helpful and professional. His advice is sound and he will save you money where he can. Not surprisingly, the people he employs are also hard working and professional. Schedules are maintained and when work is completed everywhere is left clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

John D, Buckinghamshire


Excellent advice on cause of damp in converted block of flats and successful repairs too. Extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of causes of building failure and damage and reinstatement for insurance purposes too. Highly recommended.

Steven Lazarus, London

Professional firm with high standards

Eco Tiffin sorted out my damp problem in an outbuilding, insulated and decorated it, turning it into a pleasant and very usable storeroom. Their knowledge and experience inspired confidence, and I felt that I was given honest advice about the most sensible way to pursue this project, without wasting money unnecessarily.
