Contacting me:

This is a quick note for people who have clicked on the 'contact me' link on my warm air boilers page only.

There is a vast number of warm air boilers out there but I'm afraid I only specialise in repairing the two very common models, the Johnson and Starley J25-32 and the Johnson and Starley Hi-Spec J32. I'f you have one of these that needs repairing I am generally able to achieve a 'one-visit-fix' if you live within an hour or two's driving from me in Reading.

If you have a different make or model and live close to me in Reading I am happy to undertake a repair but bear in mind two visits will be necessary (one to diagnose and order parts, and a second visit to fit them and complete the repair) leading to possibly quite a high cost.

If you require annual servicing then a long distance trip in not such a problem as no parts will be required.
