Boilers in which I specialise...

As you may have gathered from reading my other pages, I particularly like fixing older, awkward or unusual boilers, especially those other technicians have declared impossible to repair!

This has lead me to specialise in the types of boilers people are often told can't be fixed. It has become clear from customer feedback there is quite a high demand for this!

By 'specialise' in a particular make and model of boiler, I mean I fix a lot of them, enough to have learned the common failures and enough to find it worthwhile stocking all the commonly failing parts for that particular boiler. A good working knowledge and a full stock of spares in the van for a boiler means can achieve a 'one visit fix'. This also means I don't mind driving 50 or 70 miles to a failed boiler because I know I'll have the parts necessary to get it up and running again. 

Here is my list of boilers in which I specialise, with links to my website for each specific boiler. These are the boilers I'll travel anywhere to fix. I expect to repair any of these boilers in a single visit as I keep a full stock of parts for all of these:

Potterton Powermax

Range Powermax

Gledhill Boilermate
Gledhill Pulsacoil
Gledhill Systemate
Geldhill Electramate
Gledhill Gulfstream

Glow Worm Ultimate

Baxi Solo II
Baxi Solo III

I'm happy to travel any distance to fix any of these boilers in a single visit (although bear in mind I charge for the time spent traveling!) Call me if you have one of these boilers which has broken down and I'll give you an idea on the phone of what has gone wrong and how much it might cost to fix. 

My contact details are here.


Boilers with which I am familiar:

I have a second list of boilers with which I'm familiar. These are boilers I know and understand well but for which I carry only a limited stock of parts. I expect to fix these boilers quickly and efficiently but don't guarantee to carry all the parts in my van so a trip to a local spares merchant may turn out to be necessary.

Boilers on this list occasionally graduate to the list of boilers in which I specialise, when enough people call me for repairs to make it worthwhile finding space in my van to carry the necessary stock of parts.

I'm happy to travel any distance to fix any of these boilers too, but only in the daytime. No evening visits in case I need to visit a spares merchant for parts, as the merchants will all be closed. Nor can I offer my 'one visit fix' guarantee as not all merchants can be relied upon to have the parts needed, should I turn out not to have a part I need in the van. 

Call me if you have one of these boilers which has broken down and I'll give you an idea on the phone of what has gone wrong and how much it might cost to fix. 

My contact details are here.
