Update at 4.00pm
The extreme weather has brought many challenges to delivering our services, as it has done for many of you in your own homes and communities. Once again we thank everyone for their patience and understanding at this time.
To report an emergency over the weekend please call 01626 322722 and press option 1. Please be aware that we are experiencing high call volumes and are still struggling to reach many properties. We will do as much as we can until the weather improves and it is safe for our repairs team to reach everyone.
If you are having a problem with your boiler, it could be that your condensate pipe has frozen in the very cold weather. Follow the instructions in this video to defrost it, then re-set the boiler. It may need a few attempts to thaw it out https://youtu.be/3iFyHf4in8k
Please note that Monday and Tuesday are likely to be very busy for our staff, if your call is not urgent, we would recommend contacting us from Wednesday onwards. Don’t forget you can also report things through our website www.teignhousing.co.uk
