ABOUT US

It started with a massive flow diagram

As with all good businesses, WarmZilla started off with a massive flow diagram of how the process of buying a boiler online could work.

We wanted to modernise the way boilers were purchased by allowing our customers to get an online quote in minutes.

THE WARMZILLA WAY
A simple solution to a complicated problem
1
Online survey

Rather than sending engineers to a property to quote, we created an online survey instead.

2
Choose your product

By answering some simple questions about your home, we recommend products to suit your needs.

3
Choose your install date

With a UK-wide network of engineers, we offer a quick service. No more waiting around weeks for a new boiler.

DEREK THE DINOSAUR
A mascot for all seasons

Derek the Dinosaur is the popular mascot of WarmZilla. You will see him popping up on social media.

Derek was created in New York by a design company in 2018, and he’s gone on to have lots of adventures in the meantime. He even has his own Derek plushy line.

Derek celebrates his Birthday in February and he often gives a little discount on products.

A massive flow diagram is half the battle

Our founders, Matthew and Rhys Powell, are Gas Safe heating engineers, so they knew what needed to be done and what service they wanted to offer.

With their massive flow diagram in hand they set forth to bring in some more talent to help them realise their vision.

They recruited well and pretty soon the sales started rolling in and the happy customers started growing in numbers.
