Professional work throughout to a very high standard
Customer Service
Bumford’s came and assessed for the old central heating boiler and water tank to be removed and new combi boiler and radiators to be installed. Alex was excellent in offering a variety of different options we could have, and we agreed for the work to take place. Alex organised everything and kept us informed throughout prior to the works taking place. Matt and Jack were very prompt on the 1st day, and the work they carried out was excellent in both the quality of their work and also the cleanliness of their work in order to minimise disruption to us. Richard then came and completed the electrical work again to a very high standard. We are extremely happy with all the works that Bumfords carried out and the excellent communication we received from the whole Bumfords team. Many thanks.

20 Years Servicing and then a Replacement Boiler
Customer Service
We moved to South Hiendley in 2003 and chose Bumford's to replace a fire-back boiler on the basis of sensible advice plus a competitive quote from a local company. We contracted with them for an annual service and speedy call out when needed. They provided a very good service for twenty years at a very reasonable price. Recently we decided to replace our boiler which had "played up" a number of times over the past year. We again opted for a Worcester Bosch boiler from Bumford's after taking advice from Alex and for a lower quote than others contacted. The work was done to our complete satisfaction over one and a half days by Matt and Jack.

Gas appliance service and boiler replacement
Customer Service
Everyone at Bumfords was efficient and helpful as always. As soon as it was realised the boiler had to be replaced a quote was given and the date established for the fitting of the new boiler. We were kept informed and the new boiler was in place and commissioned within the week. We have used Bumford’s for over ten years and they have always performed well and been outstanding in taking account of the clients needs.

Excellent job
Customer Service
We've just had our old boiler & downstairs toilet replaced by Bumfords & would highly recommend them. From the first call to book an appointment for a quote, to the job being completed we can't praise them enough. All our questions regarding the quote etc were answered promptly & a couple of days prior to the start day we received a text message to say they would be with us at 8.30am. Matt arrived on time & did an excellent job, he was friendly & patiently answered any questions we had, he was very tidy & cleared up before leaving each day, the electrician & plasterer both arrived on schedule too so the whole job was completed in the time they had said it would be, with no delays waiting for different trades to arrive. The new boiler is much quieter then the old one & the radiators seem to get hot a lot quicker than before so overall we're very happy & will definitely use them again for any future work.

Job well done
Customer Service
Booked in to have new combi boiler and pipework done. What a great team, tidy, considerate of my home and very professional. Explained everything to me and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend them to any one.

Very happy
Customer Service
We went with Bumfords to install an LPG boiler as part of the installation of a central heating system. We were very happy with the service. All the workman were very pleasant, patient and they seem to have done a good job. Everything seems to be working well 2 weeks in. The price too was slightly cheaper than the other quote we had (from a sole trader). They also did everything they said they would, when they said they would, and kept us informed throughout the process.

Boiler Replacement and system impovements
Customer Service
We have been a customer of Bumfords for over 15 years now and have always been pleased with the service given. The work done this time was to the same high standard. Alex visited in the first instance to help us plan the improvements and advise us. The boiler replacement along with a larger radiator fitting was done with your usual efficiency inside two days. Phil and Joe who did the work were superb. Always considerate, careful and fun to have around. Thank you guys.

Cannot recommend highly enough!
Customer Service
The guys were super professional. They were here for four days - very old boiler and up a flight of stairs to boot! They were polite, clean and treated my home as if it were theirs. Alex stopped by to oversee progress every day. Love the new boiler and would recommend this company and the team in a heartbeat. Many thanks!

Air Conditioning
Customer Service
First of all I should point out I am a hard to please customer. Robin spec'd up and produced the quote for me, I posted out exact what I expected from the install and was agreed. Phil came to see me prior to the install to ensure everything was prepped and ready for the installation. Each and every aspect of my requests were considered and delivered. Phil and the crew were punctual, polite and showed my home with the respect they would their own home. It had just been decorated and was left in a perfect condition after the work. I have no hesitation in recommending Bumfords to anyone requiring air conditioning and I will be using them as and when I need a new boiler. If I could give an 11 I would. unfortunately I can't so it's a 10/10 from me. Thank you to Bumfords, and the crew... Use this company with confidence... THANK YOU

New boiler installation
Customer Service
Just had a new boiler (Worcester) supplied and installed by Bumfords. The price quoted was , I thought, good Matt's team turned up on time (8am) on the scheduled date (29/06), later on in the morning another team turned up to help Matt. They all did an excellent job. The electrician came the next morning to do a wiring mod required for the boiler to run properly. He too did an excellent job. I am very pleased with the work done, the new boiler appears to run a lot quieter than the one it replaced (which was 28 years old). Bumfords is an excellent local (to Barnsley) company. I definitely recommend them to anyone considering using them.
