South London Boiler Engineer repairs your boiler instead of replacing it

A South London boiler engineer who really knows about how to sort out boilers. Repair not replace, that's my motto. If anyone can get your boiler going again it's me.
Let me tell you a bit about myself and and the long and winding road that lead me to become an officially qualified South London heating engineer.

Ever since I was a kid I have enjoyed repairing things. My earliest memories include meccano kits and Lego blocks. A bit later on, still under the age of 10, I learned how to repair my bicycle, from tightening the chain to aligning the wheels.
Around the same time, my interest was drawn to toying with electrical things, initially battery powered. My parents decided this was more than an impulse, so invested in a safe transformer, rather than buy endless supplies of batteries; probably not the most common start for boiler engineers
Quite naturally, this evolved into a fascination with radios, televisions and transmitters. It was somewhere in my teens, that I qualified in the design, building and maintenance of wireless communication equipment.
As there was not a whole lot of demand for these skills in those days, we are going back a fair few years, I decided it was best to move a bit sideways. I became a toolmaker and worked in the cad-cam industry.

Why I became a South London heating engineer

Although it was very interesting, (there are probably still people walking around with hip-implants that I made, airplanes with parts that I tooled, and even some Ariane rockets went into space with a small contribution from me) it had one big disadvantage: you always work in the same workshop with the same people. I wanted more variety. A change of direction was needed, and there was a vast shortage of heating engineers.
How is this relevant? I came to the conclusion my work was not going to keep me happy until I retired. I was young enough to have a career change, but realised that it should be the last one if I wanted to reach a high level of expertise.
So I looked around, talked to people, and found one profession more in demand than any other. An unbelievable amount of people told me that they could not find a plumber for love or money, and the business I should get into was without a doubt central heating.

South London boiler engineer skilled at fault finding

The knowledge and experience gained in telecommunications, give me an enormous advantage in finding faults in the electrical and electronic side of boilers and controls. It has also proven very useful in the installation and repair of wireless controls that are becoming ever more popular. Where others pull their hair out in frustration, I am one of the South London boiler engineers who can sometimes just look around and find the problem without opening my toolbox, where others have given up.
It can't be a coincidence that I was one of the heating engineers out of many thousands, who was asked for feedback on the prototype of the latest generation of digital wireless controls from one of the leading brands.
On the mechanical side of things, if you have done welding and brazing on all sorts of metals including high grade stainless steel, stellite and silver, the bit of copper pipe soldering that boiler engineers do, is child's play.
And it is quite fun if you are able to actually make a part that is obsolete out of a few metal bits in order to avoid having to replace an otherwise perfectly fine boiler.

Use the South London heating engineer

That is why I can say from experience: 99% of broken boilers can be repaired. It also explains why I can repair 9 out of 10 boilers that have been condemned and the owner told it needed replacing.

That is the difference between a South London gas plumber, and a South London heating engineer.
