Outstanding solar team, got me out of a tight spot
Customer Service
Stuart, Mikey and the P Blackhall solar team are lifesavers - I cannot recommend them highly enough. I got taken for a ride by a local solar installation firm, who left me with a damaged roof, no MCS certification, no DNO, no paperwork, and then disappeared into thin air. Stuart and Mikey came and surveyed my system, brought it up to code, certified it, AND repaired my roof and fit vermin screening, for a good price. They're total professionals with a real understanding of the sector and a genuine passion for the work they're doing. I won't be going anywhere else in future.

Fine exchange of a gas hob for an induction hob
Customer Service
We had the gas hob in our rental flat replaced by an induction one, primarily to reduce the carbon footprint but also fire risk and humidity. I found P Blackhall on the web offering both gas and electrics expertise, as well as specifically in installing induction, and Peter Moonie in their electrics department provided clear info and a competitive quote for the installation (we had sourced the hob ourselves - note that we had selected a "plug into normal socket" 13 amp model, so we needed no great changes to the electrics). The job itself was performed by engineer Gavin in the presence of our tenants to everybody's satisfaction - Gavin came at the agreed time and left things behind in a neat state. I saw the new hob in person myself a few weeks later: it looks great and has been a pleasure for the tenants to work with. We would use Blackhall again after this first experience (and have, in the meantime). They are not flashy, but their relatively simple IT setup regarding email comms and invoicing was easily good enough for us.

Repair to Solar panel installation
Customer Service
P Blackwood came to my rescue and assessed my Solar power installation which had faults and was originally installed incorrectly. They corrected the faults, issued me with an MCS Certificate and now my Solar installation works perfectly with no alarms and the Solar panels are correctly fixed to my roof and easily withstood the recent gales. I would fully recommend P Blackwood for any future renewables installations.

Quick and efficient service
Customer Service

Excellent communication and aftercare
Customer Service
This was my first time using Blackhall Plumbing and Heating. I can't tell you my relief at choosing this company due to their professional service and aftercare. Not only did Stuart arrange a fast viewing and quote, he even came out personally after hours when the job was complete. There was a small issue (easily resolved involving electric trip switch) and he thoroughly checked that my boiler was working efficiently. Sean in particular really impressed me. The variety of jobs needing done were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Both he and his apprentice were very helpful and friendly - they even took in deliveries at my door for me (I'm physically disabled) and assembled a shower seat! This was really going above and beyond the service that I was expecting. I felt the price was also very reasonable considering everything that got done. Don't hesitate to use this company.

First class service
Customer Service
We found Tim and his superb team on Which? Trusted Traders after our boiler broke down and we discovered our long term engineers had retired. Our system is complex, and significant connectivity and supply problems arose in the replacement of the boiler. All these were eventually solved by hard work and commitment by the team who were unfailingly courteous, skillful, tidy and on time. We have had a long term problem with water supply to our bath which 4 other firms had looked at over the last 5 years with no solution other than lifting the tiled floor to investigate. This was mentioned and it has now been fixed by the team without any disturbance. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Great service as always
Customer Service
I have used PBlackhall plumbing for years. They are always fast to come out and provide a great service with people that I can trust. If work doesn't need doing they say so. Would highly recommend.

Professional and thorough job done.
Customer Service
The plumber sent by P Blackhall was clean and courteous and arrived promptly. He stood back and quoted/told it would be a big job - two men all day by another firm. He stood back and took time to consider the options. He said that it was a straightforward job no need to drain down system. He could do it himself. He completed the work within 4 hours even going for parts. He left a very clean and tidy job.

Excellent Service
Customer Service
From my initial telephone contact to completion of the work and billing for the agreed cost, Blackhall Plumbing Heating & Electrical have provided an excellent service. They responded to my request that the problem be dealt with as an emergency, their plumber Derek gave a clear explanation of the work required, carried it out efficiently in a friendly professional manner, and the cost of the work was as expected from their stated terms. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Great work on solar panels
Customer Service
P Blackhall's employees Mickey and Jay did a really great job fixing the solar panels. They sorted out and fixed the wiring and tested the system. They came when they said they would and were professional, tidy and polite. They carefully explained in language we could understand what they were doing, why it needed doing and were generally helpful.
