Email from Chris Rigg, we fitted a Worcester Greenstar 25Si Compact Combi Boiler to his property in West Watford finished 18/03/2016
Thanks Ian. Great job. And appreciate you adding some cement i see to some loose brick work round the boiler. I'll take a look at the instructions at the weekend with the wife. Money transfer to you tomorrow for the balance.
Thanks again for your hard work mate.

I contacted Ian after being let down at very short notice by 3 local plumbers, I needed to get a boiler service and safety check conducted quite urgently in North Watford. Ian was very flexible, and easy to communicate with. He managed to fit in my service within 2 days of initial contact, arrived on time and communicated throughout the process even up to receiving an emailed electronic receipt upon job completion. Couldn't be happier with the service... I would highly recommend this company.
Thanks again, Fritha.

Ian has always provided me with a quick, efficient, and reasonably priced service when dealing with any break downs, upgrades or servicing my central heating system required.
He has been quick to react when needed, and rather than raise problems he has solved issues quickly and without fuss, in a professional but friendly way. Highly recommended.

Please find to follow my comments further to your visit to us yesterday, for use on your website:
"Whenever a boiler related issues rears its head, I am filled with dread. I hate the feeling that my ignorance in such a field could be exploited by somebody else's expertise! Our boiler inexplicably stopped working on Sunday night, whilst the remains of the previous days snow were still very much in evidence. I searched on-line for a local plumber and found Ian's number. I called first thing the next morning and Ian was with us within 2 hours. The problem was diagnosed very quickly, Ian left to source the relevant part and was back with us exactly when he said he would be. The new part was immediately installed and normal heat restored - to our huge relief. I am delighted to have found Ian on-line and relieved that I now have the details of an honest, reliable and efficient plumber on record. I would have no reservations whatsoever in recommending him and his services to anyone." Hope this is ok.
With kindest regards

Subject: Excellent Service
Ian Foster has recently completed various plumbing jobs for me all of which I am extremely satisfied, with both his reliability, fair charges and high standard of work. However, a special mention must be made for the installation of a MagnaClean filter on my central system, which Ian fitted after he completed a MagnaClense. It really has made such a difference and improvement to the efficiency of the system. I always felt that our central heating system had been slightly under- specified, as the radiators never reached a high temperature in the cold weather and seemed to have cold spots. This has now changed dramatically, so much so, that I have reduced the temperature on the actual boiler and I therefore must be saving money. I didn't know Ian before and took a chance on him from the look of his website and the testimonials. I am pleased that I did and would have no hesitation in recommending him for all plumbing associated work.

P.S. British Gas quoted me a lot more money to fit a MagnaClean Filter.
so much for everything Ian.
You are a star.

I'll keep your card for inevitable future needs!

Subject:Greetings Dear Mr. Foster, I am very happy to write out my happiness with how you carried out the recent work. More formally, I have been very impressed with the professionalism shown by Ian Foster when he reently carried out work at my London flat. It was very reassuring when, firstly, he correctly confirmed his visits to the property and he was punctual to a fault. Secondly and just as important, Ian Foster carried out the work with correct knowledge and attention. He left the site clean and tidy with everything fully working. His details are now firmly included in my address book. With best wishes, Yours sincerely, David Laws

Thank you for a job well done, Ian. What a pleasant surprise it was to meet a young man who knew not only how to install a Surestop switch professionally, but carried the work out in a very friendly manner, and also arrived on time!As an elderly widow I have, unfortunately, met a few unscrupulous and dishonest so-called tradesmen during the past few years. Ian, you have restored my faith in human nature and for that I am really grateful.
I also won't hesitate to recommend you to family and friends and will contact you again, if ever I need your services.Many thanks again and good luck for the future. You are a credit to your family and your chosen profession.

Just wanted to write to you to say thank you for coming round to show us how to fill up the boiler,we haven't had any problems since. We got the best response from any company we contacted from Ian Foster,he gave us a full breakdown of costs for several boilers and the fitting of them.Once confirmed an appointment was made very quickly as my wife was heavily pregnant at the time.He turned up on time,did the job,cleaned up and took the boiler way,he also didn't drink to much tea!When a problem raised ,they came the next morning and resolved the issue straight way,charge free.I was recommended Ian by a work colleagues and we now recommend him to any one with boiler problems.

Just a quick note to thanks for such a great service my Wife and I received from you and for fixing our boiler. Not sure exactly what you did to the radiator in the toilet which hasn't been working for the last 2 and a half years but that came on also after you left which is great! We can now sit in comfort!! We will definitely recommend you in the future.
