  • F75 Fault code on Vaillant Ecotec plus 831 boiler

    Vince is a really friendly guy who gave me a decent price to replace the pressure sensor on my Vaillant boiler and did the job within the hour. Also gave me advice to avoid issues in the future which was helpful to know! Would recommend.

  • Need power flush and boiler check for error code

    I didn't like his approach to the job, he didn't fix the issue completely and I had to get someone else in. I felt he could do more do appease my dissatisfaction and also his rates compared to other gas engineers are non negotiable. I am not saying he isn't capable but I wouldn't use him again

    ABBS Heating's reply:

    Firstly I appreciate that in the end you decided to leave neutral feedback instead of negative as that would of been 100% unjustified.

    Initially the job advertised was to do a powerflush, any engineer worth he’s salt would carry out checks such as checking for air in the system, making sure the pump is operational and radiators are all open before you carry out a flush as it may not be necessary.

    On this arrival the boiler was displaying fault codes relating to overheating after carrying out above checks I discovered the pump had burnt out and explained to Oliver that before we find any other issues we need to replace the pump as there is a good chance that replacing it could resolve the problem, but there is a chance that we may discover other issues, but at this stage the pump was faulty and needed replacing.

    So after replacing the pump I then discovered the main heat exchanger on the boiler was blocked and I explained to Oliver that doing a powerflush wouldn’t 100% guarantee that it would resolve the problem and advised he would be better off
    replacing the main heat exchanger completely and then consider flushing system and clean the magnetic filter.

    To summarise I couldn’t of diagnosed the problem with the main heat exchanger before we changed the pump, it’s an impossibility and I thought I was clear on the fact that we need to approach this situation in stages.

    I wish you all the best Oliver but on this occasion we’re going to have agree to differ.

  • Identify issue and repair boiler not heating water

    Vince was very punctual and knowledgeable he identified the problem with ease and rectified the issue - He also undertook the certification of a boiler in the flat above while he was there for a very reasonable price. He carried out a very thorough inspection of the boiler before issuing the cert and talked us through his observations for protecting our boiler in the future. Very friendly and reliable would definitely recommend and we will most certainly use again in the future.

  • Boiler not working

    I am usually very sceptical about hiring tradesmen I don't know because of the risk. I was quickly assured by Vincent that he was not a cowboy. His pleasant manner and politeness spoke volumes to me. He was with me 20 minutes after our phone call.
    He found the fault very speedily which was the 3 way valve, fixed it so we had a working boiler and arranged to comeback Sunday morning which he did and the boiler was working in no time. All at a very acceptable price.
    I have Vincent's number on my phone and would call him with the knowledge that he is reliable, fair priced and a thoroughly nice man.
    I cannot recommend him highly enough.
    10/10.
