    Need to get my boiler serviced. Could anyone recommend someone in the Brockley area. I've used Martin Kelsen in the past (he's very good) just can't get hold of him and running out of time! :0(

    Monkeyboy South East Crusader always did mine and installed a new one. Very good, he's a bit LOUD! so be prepared to be talked at.

    If I remember correctly, he was impressively Scottish and explained my boiler to me, along with the London water, in minute detail.
  5. I can't recommend anybody other then Saglio from Catford. These people will not rip you off.

    I used Abacus Gas following MonkeyBoy's recommendation last year and he was great. So I can recommend him.

    We also had a quote from Saglio and the quote to fit a new boiler was almost identical so I don't think there is a huge difference in cost. We went with Abacus solely on the grounds that they (he) installs Vaillant boilers which I had heard were a bit better than Worcester Bosch.

    Glenn from Briteheat in Forest Hill is a lovely chap, very reliable and has been an absolute saviour in our leaky flat

    will totally recommend Abacus Gas as mentioned above. The guy, Eddie, was absolutely brilliant in solving a problem another boiler man couldn't solve (of course he must have been giving me the run-around!). But Eddie was terrific. Had it done in no time, no faffing around.

    Agree with RajS. After seeing the reviews here, we used Abacus Eddie just after Christmas and the man was an absolute champion at a reasonable price.

    Always need a lie down after the Eddie onslaught. Abacus visited for the yearly service, I mentioned that the gas hob sometimes fades out when the boiler lights. A quick check at the gas meter diagnosed a dodgy doo dah (think that the correct name), he spoke to British Gas who are enroute to fix. I also got the mandatory 20min gas engineering lesson about pressures, burn rates, carbon monoxide, flue gas ratios etc....

    Splendid chap just don't book him if you have a hangover.

    I have to say our lesson took a little longer, probably due to the fact that Eddie had to replace the circuit board and explain what every single bit of circuitry actually does to the boiler and, in turn, to us. That coupled with the fact that were still under the influence of the extended Christmas weekend, exetensive abuses, we struggled to take it all in. Even the dog had to have a lie down afterwards, and - damn shame -, I can't say I remember much of what he tried to teach us. Lovely chap though and will defo use his services again next year.
