Boiler repair South London

Boiler repair in south London is what I have been doing for a many years. Specialising in so called difficult cases where a Big Gascompany or other "experts" had told people there was no hope for their current heater.
It is simple: if I can get the parts that I need, the problem can be solved. Only total obsolescence of the parts means it can not be done. Many customers in south London had their boiler repaired, hours after calling me for an emergency, even when they were told they needed a new one by someone else.

When you come home, or wake up with the heating not working or something leaking gas or water, it can be very stressful and costly. Few people have a reliable central heating engineer readily available. By reliable, I mean someone who won't mislead you and will work tirelessly to get your boiler working. If you need help right now, call me on:

Mon-Fri 08.30-20.30           0208 265 8822
Emergencies out of hours   07852 736 626

Most people cross their fingers hoping they can make do with a fast domestic boiler repair, and hope to avoid having to pay for a boiler replacement. Who wouldn't?
Perhaps you have already been told your current boiler has to go?

How to avoid the most common cons and rip offs

Good news for boiler repairs in south London

boiler repairs south London Well, get ready for good news:
99% of central heating faults can be repaired; this is not an invented figure, but based on years of experience.
Three reasons why heating engineers tell you that the problem can't be solved when it is not true.
1. Fault finding is much more difficult than installing or replacing; if you fail, you don't get paid. They may well know it can be fixed, but lack the confidence to take that risk.
2. It could be lack of knowledge and/or experience that make a plumber really believe it can't be done.
3. Greed. Solving a breakdown may earn you something between £100 and £200; selling an installation will can be 10 times as much.

Most days of the week you'll find me doing boiler repairs in south London. Of course some will eventually reach the end of their useful life or perhaps a stage where an expensive repair e.g. replacing the main heat exchanger, is not cost effective. At that stage, I inform the owner that it is possible to keep what they have, but that it may be a case of throwing good money after bad. It is then up to them to decide which way to go.

There are plenty so-called South London boiler repair specialists charging people a small fortune just to turn up, then spend an hour or so diagnosing the problem, and get it wrong. I guarantee that I can find the problem; if I can't, you don't get a bill.
Of course, you can and should check that your boiler is really broken and not a false alarm.

A boiler is a system. It's no secret that some faults initially present themselves as having more than one possible cause. It is therefore easy to see how engineers reach the wrong conclusion about how to rectify a problem. This can lead to the wrong part being replaced.
Wouldn't you prefer to deal with someone who tried that little bit harder to solve the problem?

Why should you get a second opinion if you were told your boiler can not be repaired?

By and large, there are two reasons.We are experiencing the effects of economic change, and a lot of people working in central heating find the work has decreased.
Replacing a boiler is more work and involves more money. This makes it more likely you will be told your boiler can not be repaired.

"It is too old", "The parts are no longer available" or even "These ones are not allowed anymore for energy efficiency".

Others may be more honest and really believe a repair is not possible, simply because they lack the skills (or patience!).

The truth about boiler repairs in south London

The truth is that someone with sufficient training and experience can almost always repair the problem. Only once or twice a year do I come across a boiler that is truly beyond help.
A bit more common is the situation where I tell the client it is possibly more economical to replace the old beast, than to repair it. The difference is: you now have a choice.
Late last year I came across an older boiler, a non-condensing model of a dubious make. On top of that, the installer had clearly not made a lot of effort to do a good job.

Parts although available, were very expensive. Apart from the fact that at least one and possibly two parts were faulty and needed replacing to get it going again, I also noticed signs of leaks in 5 different places.

It would have been less expensive in the long run to buy a new boiler, but that is a matter of the home owner to decide, and I gave him that choice.

The choice is yours, and should stay yours.
