I contacted Bumfords, having previously used them, to check out my elderly mothers boiler that kept cutting out. They sent an engineer out the same day. He checked the system, which was now working, and found a kink in the outlet from the condensate pump and showed me the manual override that cleared the full tank and cured, so he thought, the stoppage. The next day it was off again. I went and checked the condensate pump and found the manual override was now not working at all. I got the system working again. This went on for the next day or two and so I rang back to Bumfords and they sent out a different engineer. He didn't really inspect anything, just said that the condensate pump was the issue and did he want me to order a replacement? I declined as I recognised that the pump was not the only issue as it was now 'out of the system', having been replaced with a bowl to collect the water, but I said I would give it over the weekend. Over the weekend it went off every night. I called Bumfords on the Monday (6/1/20)and spoke to a member of staff who said that the issue was only the pump and he would get back to me with a price. I am still waiting for him to get back. I checked the internet for a different gas service engineer who came the same day and straight away after listening to my description of what had happened he identified the spark unit as being faulty. Replaced it, a really simple job. Has worked perfectly since. I won't be using this trader again.

From first contact Bumfords produced a detailed work plan and costing to replace some radiators, new pump etc. Craig completed the job with respect for my home and was courteous at all times. All the work was finished to a high standard. It was a pleasure doing business with a friendly bunch of people from office staff through to fitters. Thank you.

Booked Bumfords after meeting Robin and getting a quote, after another supplier failed to give me any confidence. The work was done on the days agreed, to the agreed price and by a very efficient, friendly and obliging fitter. The location of the boiler could not be described as 'easy access' and some work around's were needed to get the new installation done properly, but these were all sorted without any hassles or grumbles and within the costs quoted. I did keep the teapot brewed, but that's an easy part of the deal! Well done and thanks to Robin and Matt and the Bumfords' team.

Very professional advice
Alex Gregory of Bumfords came out to advise us on improving our complicated heating and hot water system in a big old house. He was very professional, quick to size up the very complex systems, and patient and clear in giving us suggestions about the possible ways forward. He was very honest and told us we didn't need Bumfords at the moment but we needed to consider our options. We were impressed and very grateful for his time.

We had a handrail replaced on our staircase after having the artex wall covering tested for the possible presence of asbestos. At all times they were professional and explained to us at every stage what was happening. The work was done to a good standard and the area was left clean and tidy afterwards. We wound certainly use them again in the future.

Bumfords have just replaced our old oil boiler with a gas combi boiler and everything went perfectly. Alex guided us through arranging for a gas supply and meter, and then the boiler was replaced, the hot water cylinder and tanks in the loft removed, and they arranged for our oil tank to be drained and safely removed by a specialist firm. The engineers, Matt and Keith, were excellent, completing the installation more quickly and with far less disruption than we expected. There was no mess at all. We wish we had this done years ago ! Everything was done on time and for the agreed quote.

Hello Adele, thank you for taking the time to review us. We really appreciate your kind comments. We look forward to serving you in the future. Kind regards, Neil Bumford (MD)
So helpful
I rang Bumfords asking for help with an existing underfloor heating thermostat. Having been let down by the electrician who replaced the thermostat (he said he did not know how to set it up) I contacted Bumfords and spoke to Alex. On his advice I sent photos of the relevant parts and Alex contacted the manufacturer on my behalf. The result was a phone call from the manufacturer to talk me through the set up ... no problems! Very grateful to Bumfords who definitely put the needs of this customer first.
