Excellent family business, friendly, reliable and efficient
Customer Service
Just fitted a new wet underfloor heating system as part of our new kitchen refurb. This required a lot of coordination between plumbers, kitchen fitters and flooring installers which went remarkably well. Part way through the kitchen project we noticed a leak on the old boiler and despite the various constraints of COVID they managed to source and fit a new boiler quickly and efficiently. Alex is always so helpful and ensures everything is done in a timely and professional way.

Absolutely delighted
Customer Service
Its great when you can use a local company. Its even better when they turn out to be as good as Bumford Heating. All the staff I spoke to or met, are without exception, friendly, professional and highly competent. The quality of the workmanship was spot on - and attention to detail exceeding my expectations. The prices are realistic and fair. During the strange Covid aware circumstance we're in - they were very mindful of wearing ppe and social distancing. Would I recommend them? I already have to two friends.

The full works
Customer Service
Bumfords were recommended by a friend. Alex couldn't have been more helpful, it was big job with an urgent timeline, including a new heating system, boiler, radiators, bathroom and cloakroom. The end result and attention to detail and quality of work is outstanding. This is a professional, quality business, with Alex going out of his way to answer questions and to make sensible suggestions. We were given a schedule and budget, which was kept to by the Bumfords team, so no hidden surprises. It was the little things that really stood out for us, we urgently needed an outside tap, Alex arranged for someone to come out that day to put one in, to loaning an industrial hoover to clear up mess, not actually left by Bumfords. They also helped us find other local trade to help with plastering and painting. This is a quality team, you will struggle to find a better, more reliable service in the Barnlsey area. We would use them again and strongly recommend.

Customer Service
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.

High work standards
Customer Service
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.

Replacement boiler
Customer Service
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.

Reliable & efficient
Customer Service
Satisfaction and efficient fitting of new solid fuel boiler. On schedule and budget, having previously fitted the last boiler.

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.

Excellent service
Customer Service
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.
