Installation of oil fired central heating system and external boiler.

"Our new oil fired central heating system was installed by David in 2019. Our old house is quite hotch-potch in its layout, but David installed the system with the minimum of fuss.

David was excellent with his communication regarding the start date, planning and discussing our requirements, and any changes required as he went along.

As well as being considerate, providing detailed costings, and leaving our house tidy afterwards, David was reassuring about the whole process.

I thoroughly recommend him for any plumbing and heating requirements."

A replacement thermo couple was required for a baxi back boiler fire. The work was carried out very quickly and efficiently. There was no fuss and a reasonable charge made.
 
Cost: £66
 

"I went on line to find a plumber and got D R. Bell. I was able to message him.late at night to ask for a repair by the next day. The gas burner had gone out and would not stay lit. I phoned the next day and The Plumber conformed when he would be out to sort the heating. He came out on the Saturday and replaced the thermo couple.
Quick and efficient."

Installation of NEST heating units and smoke alarms.

"I know my house has a much older heating system, complicated by zones. Mr Bell made the switch over effortlessly. On time and all done on the same day as promised.

I have friends who have had other so called NEST experts unable to complete the job where Mr Bell succeeded admirably.

Perfect service. That is rare indeed around here. I won't hestitate to call if further work is required."
