Installation of New Boiler

I have no hesitation in recommending this plumbing and heating firm. When my old boiler broke down and could not be repaired Scott personally came to the house and quickly put our mind at ease. I had been putting off replacing the old floor standing boiler for years because I thought it would be very tricky and expensive to do. Scott explained exactly what would be required to fit a new high efficiency wall hung boiler in the same kitchen cupboard as the old one. He quickly sent us a detailed quotation setting out how this would be done. His was by far the most reassuring of the 3 quotations I received. Where others said that they doubted that they could fit us in at short notice, he rose to the challenge and gave us an exact date and time the work would begin and how the various trades would be organised. And this is how it turned out to our complete satisfaction. Well done the Findlay team for the high quality of work they produced for us.

Just had new Worcester Bosch Combi boiler fitted by Scott Findlay Heating. What a fantastic team, arrived promptly at 8am on the prearranged date, the engineers work solidly throughout the day always conscious of your property and keeping you informed of progress. My installation took 3 full days this included replacing the gas main and flushing the whole system. When job completed I received full instruction on operating my new system and my house was left as found, all rubbish removed and debris swept up. My system is also covered by a complete 10 year guarantee. Highly recommend.

I had a new boiler fitted in my top floor tenement flat by Scott Findlay Plumbing & Heating. I had shopped around, read reviews and got 2 other quotes. Replacing a boiler is a big purchase! I wanted to get it right and find a company that would do a great job, with the minimum of fuss and that I could trust! I'm pleased to say I made the right choice. Scott and the team were all very professional and efficient, unexpected issues (it's an old flat!) that cropped up were quickly resolved with minimum stress to me. I can't recommend them highly enough. Claire in the office also deserves a mention - great service. Thank you !

I recently had a new boiler and 3 new radiators installed in an old top floor tenement flat. I got quotes from various companies - but chose Scott Findlay because of the time he took to explain all the things I needed to consider to make an informed choice. The others told me little and I didn't know enough about the process to ask the right questions. The work started and I was immediately impressed - over the course of the job I had 6 or so different workmen in the flat doing various parts of the job and I can honestly say they were all, without exception, some of the best I've encountered. Why? Because they all took care to answer my questions, make suggestions and explain what they were doing. They were tidy and careful - did a splendid job getting under my old and fragile floorboards with the smallest amount of damage, putting everything back with care and attention to minimise the impact. Scott helped me get my radiators powder-coated (they look fantastic!) and choose fancy valves for them so they look beautiful in the room and fit with the decor. It's rare to find tradesmen who have a good eye for what looks good - and understand why it's important. Their communication was great all the way through and that's another thing that can make these sorts of jobs frustrating and is vital for ensuring there are no misunderstandings. All in all, I was very impressed: great quality boiler and radiators, efficient organisation, fantastic work ethic. I would highly recommend them.

We had an intermittent fault with our Worcester Bosch boiler and were also long overdue for a service. We had contacted 2 local firms for help..neither of whom bothered to turn up. Scott Findlay replied to our enquiry promptly and arranged an appointment for an engineer to call. Simon diagnosed and fixed fault quickly and then did a full boiler service which was carried out in a very efficient and professional manner. Great service. Thank you!

Scott Findlay Plumbing & Heating were excellent from start to finish. My 14 year old boiler needed to be replaced in September 2018.

First class service throughout.

I came across Scott Findlay after using another plumber to do what should have been a simple job to replace a kitchen tap. That proved to be too much for that individual and i was left with a leaking tap! Subsequently, the firm has done other small jobs and most recently have replaced my combi boiler. Each time, the engineer has arrived exactly on time and done the work professionally and rapidly. The boiler replacement went very smoothly. Brian worked extremely hard over the two days; I was impressed with the way he protected the flat from dust and dirt and the fact he took very little time out for a break. He explained each step as he progressed and then was very patient with me as he went over the working of the new boiler and thermostat in great detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm to others whether it be for a major job like this recent one or a simple one as in the past.

I needed to replace our 15 year old boiler and having done some research I obtained quotes from 3 firms (one national and two local). There was roughly £400 difference between lowest and highest but I opted for Scott Findlay (not quite the cheapest quote) for the following reasons: I try to use local trade where possible Overall feedback is very good Appears on which 'Trusted Trader' website Recommended Worcester Bosch Group installer Clarity on the installation process but also (very importantly as it transpired) advised of potential issues - only one of the three that did. From initial quote to final commissioning of the boiler I spoke to / met six people from the business - two office based, Scott Findlay who quoted, the installer and then two follow up visits re testing the gas pressure coming into my house - each person was very professional and helpful / courteous. The boiler was fitted as arranged and the installer tidied up after him. However the gas pressure coming into my house was not sufficient to pass the commissioning test - this was the advice of potential issue Scott advised. To cut a long story short, SGN had to increase the gas flow (at no cost to me) and although a minor inconvenience, I was aware of this so it did not come as a surprise. I understand that if the tests are not carried out correctly and the pressure is too low the guarantee can be invalidated. Sound advice indeed from Scott. Would I recommend or use again - absolutely.

Prompt professional service. I highly recommend them for their competent workforce unlike another the other firm of plumbers who scratched their head and came up with the genius solution that our leak was “a mystery”. This prompted me to look up Which Trusted Traders and find Scott Findlay plumbing & Heating Ltd. Their bill was reasonable too. Claire took charge of co ordinating the plumber works and joinery works as I live some 150 miles away and that’s what I call going the extra mile! I’ve got this firm on speed dial should I require their services in the future.

Simon and Kenny installed a new lpg boiler, radiators and two showers in a stone cottage, to upgrade us from electric storage heaters and showers. We’ve been putting the job off for a while, not wanting the disturbance, but the job was done quickly, Scott and Claire kept us up to date beforehand and during the works, and the guys did a great job, with very little mess and disturbance, given the size of the job (and the number of thick walls to get through!). The final installation is great;neat and tidy (and much much warmer!). Would definitely recommend.

Our boiler was due for replacement anyway, but it packed in totally during the waiting period so Claire pulled out all the stops to get a swap of dates with another customer - and succeeded. The installation itself was very thorough and professional - done by the book and we had the heating/hot water back on the first day. The engineers not only know their stuff and operate and clean up to a high standard but are very pleasant guys to have around. The communication is also very good and Scott answered all our queries about the new boiler over the phone. We would unhesitatingly recommend.

Every person we've dealt with, from Claire in the office, Scott when he came to estimate for a new boiler and the engineers - Kevin, Simon and Kenny - we've been extremely happy with the friendly, meticulous work and the pride that they all take in their work. Everything was carefully explained to us and there was virtually no mess to clear up when they had finished.

Based on reviews, we called Scott Findlay for a quote when our boiler was on the way out and decided to go with the company the next day. We were not disappointed. The company could teach many bigger companies something about customer service. The quote was reasonable and we were kept informed at every step. Disruption was minimised despite the fact that we had to have new pipes laid. Times were kept to and all tradesmen sent by the company were pleasant And knowledgeable. We felt totally at ease with the whole project. We especially appreciated that the company made sure every tradesperson knew not to let our cats out. The attention to detail was fantastic and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Scott Findlay and his team have installed a new boiler in our flat as our old one had broken out. Scott offered us the most attractive deal taking into account the quality of the boiler, the speed and the quality of the installation and the interest free payment plan. The communication led by Claire Findlay all way through the process was impressive and the boiler installation as well as the radiators replacement took just one day and was arranged within 48 hours from the moment we decided to accept the deal. The quality of the work was very good and we are happy with our upgraded boiler and radiators.
