New oil fired boiler supplied and fitted
Customer Service
I needed to replace my existing oil boiler and Bumfords were local with a good reputation. Robin Bumford came and completed a site survey alone with a very competitive quote. Prior to this Robin returned with the engineer Phil Romans and discussed the installation. On the day of the installation, phil removed and disposed of my old oil boiler and fitted a brand new Worcester Bosch. Only when he fired it up did he find fault with the boiler - this was not his fault but immediately contacted Worcester Bosch and an engineer came and replaced the part free of charge immediately. I would have no hesitation I'm recommending Bumfords heating and both Robin and Phil did and excellent installation at a very competitive price - compared to other local companies.

Installation hot water system
Customer Service
Very professional service from first phone call to completing the work. Everyone was very helpful in sorting out the problem and delivering a solution. We had a new hot unvented water system installed. Very responsive to first phone call and assessing the work. A clear quote and agreed installation date. Explained the installation, how to use and future maintenance. Kept disruption to a minimum and cleared away as went along. Completed installation to schedule and price. Excellent quality job. Will definitely use again.

Dependable company
Customer Service
After reading all the reviews we engaged Bumfords for the first time to replace our central heating boiler and a radiator. This work was carried out to our total satisfaction. We recently engaged them again on a much smaller plumbing requirement to which Alex responded with the usual eagerness to assist we have found with all the people we have dealt with at Bumfords. It follows therefore that we have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone looking for a dependable company to carry out the services they provide.

Customer Service
We are undertaking a major refurbishment of our home and I wished to appoint one trustworthy company to fulfil all our plumbing and heating requirements. Several people recommended Bumfords to me and I have not been disappointed. Phase one of the works was completed last week and involved installation of a new en-suite shower room, new gas boiler and various other plumbing and heating works. Specialist asbestos removal was also required and facilitated by Bumfords. The shower room was a particularly challenging project, due to pre-existing house design and build features, which Bumfords overcame and resolved, with stunning results. There were a couple of hiccups along the way, mainly due to supply chain issues. Bumford speedily resolved the problems and brought the project back on track. Our project manager, has been exemplary, running the project to military precision and keeping us fully informed along the way. Those working in our home have been equally professional and helpful, delivering quality workmanship, advice and guidance, as well as rapidly accommodating our changing and evolving requirements. Phase two of our works programme is due to commence shortly. This involves gas fire installation and a new bathroom. The bathroom will also be challenging, due to similar design issues already encountered with the shower room, where Bumfords took on the challenges with aplomb. We look forward to welcoming Bumfords back into our home to undertake Phase two.

Straightforward and pleasant service
Customer Service
We hired Bumfords to service our boiler and cylinder. Lee was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable and carried out the job well, letting us know what work had been conducted. A very professional job all round and would recommend to anyone else looking for boiler servicing in South Yorkshire.

Excellent work throughout
Customer Service
What I thought would be a mammoth task was completed within 3 days. The team from Bumford Heating Limited were outstanding, they installed a completely new solid fuel central heating system and got it up and running in the time stated above.

Helpful, prompt and efficient
Customer Service
I've used Bumford's for a number of years now and have always been very satisfied with their work. They deal with urgent issues as quickly as they can and the engineers are always knowledgeable and helpful. My boiler broke down on Saturday 2 October and I emailed them about this at 6pm that day because, from past experience, I knew the issue would be dealt with as soon as possible on Monday. Bumford's dropped off electric fan heaters to me on Monday in case there was a delay getting an engineer out to me, but in the event the boiler (which needed a new pump) was up and working again by 3pm on Tuesday 5 October. A great service!

Exemplary Service!
Customer Service
An excellent company!! I cannot recommend highly enough. Bumfords have provided exemplary service for my 95 year old mother’s central heating system over many years. Everyone we have ever dealt with has been friendly, polite and professional. Recently though they have impressed as a business that really cares about its customers. The ancient back boiler of Mum’s system started cutting out making it impossible to use the central heating system. We received a very prompt Covid compliant visit from Alex who advised us on the installation of a new boiler and provided a very reasonable quote. However, we did not think my mother would cope with the upheaval it would require. Bumfords understood our position and instead of shrugging their shoulders, like many companies would have done, they showed great empathy. They sent another engineer for one last go at trying to solve the problem. Bob was amazing, methodical, analytical, and patient and after testing everything and eventually spending over half an hour lying on the floor staring at the boiler flame he cracked it. A couple of days later he returned and fitted a new part and all is well! This company is definitely one in which you can have great confidence and one you can trust completely.
