Central heating or good plumbers

6 May '17

Our central heating system seems to have a leak. I think I know where the leak is. Anyone have any recommendations on who to help or experience of getting this type of problem sorted?

The best guys for central heating that I have ever used are LMS Gas services. Local family firm and they REALLY know their stuff.

I would second LMS. They are fab and local and I used them to install my boiler a few years back when it blew in the middle of a cold spell. They managed to fit me in really quickly, did most of the work in one long day and were tidy, nice people who seemed more interested in doing a good job than in collecting the money! Great family firm.

A third for LMS from me. Used them on a number of occasions, very reliable, efficient and reasonable priced family firm.

Not quite on topic… but I’d love to see some of these local services added to the Friends of Forest Library discount card? @Pauline and @Simon? An objective for year two?

Good idea Jason :slight_smile:

Kastro is someone I used this week when my boiler broke down. Super quick, nice guy and no nonsense and also not expensive.

His details are: 07881974367 - (I asked if I could put his details up).

Absolutely agree - LMS are fab. Definitely recommends

Bit of a specific one this - but does anyone know a plumber/heating engineer how can carry out an annual service on both a Worcester Bosch boiler as well as a Joule unvented hot water cylinder?

Our normal boiler guy isn’t rated for unvented cylinders and the guy that fitted our cylinder doesn’t service Worcester boilers :man_shrugging:

Rather than splitting the jobs, I’d much rather find someone who can service the both in one visit (and hopefully save a few pounds in the process)

I already tried LMS on the basis of the above recommendations, but the specific combination was a no go apparently :pensive:

We are Progas regulars. Have you tried them?

Peter Bennison is very good and he is Worcester Bosch approved installation engineer.

Many thanks both - will give them a try :slight_smile:

Just a quick follow up to say that we went with Peter Bennison in the end - happy with the work, and good to get the two jobs done in one, so a :+1: from me.
