Boiler & Heathing

The job was replacing the boiler in a property, which was part of a 1980s conversion of a large, old and grand house. This was not a straight forward job. However after three days of hard work the new modern combi condensing boiler complete with a new gas supply and upgraded radiators, were installed. A very good job and good service.

We had AJ Barnes come and fit and replace our boiler along with six radiators. We were dreading it, thought it would be a big messy job not to mention the expense. We were so so impressed with the professionalism, speed and quality of work carried out that we have in fact recommended AJ Barnes to several people now. We have our boiler serviced every year since and it is always a pleasure to do business with such nice and professional people. Thank You!

Boiler Replacement - Plymouth

★★★★★

Had a replacement boiler and related products installed by this firm yesterday. Having used their heating and plumbing service at my previous property, I pretty much knew what to expect. The service provided was faultless, from initially assisting with choosing the right products for our home, to decommissioning and disposing of the existing apparatus, installing the new and making sure everything is operating smoothly. Additionally, the premises were left in a clean and tidy condition. No messing around, friendly, efficient, reliable and reasonable in terms of cost - thoroughly recommended.

Absolutely outstanding. One of the best and most reliable tradesman we have ever had - and with our new house we've gone through a fair few of them! Did what he said he would do and more and yet didn't try to up the price because of it. I just cannot recommend enough, such a really nice guy, couldn't have been more helpful. Its a no brainer that we'd use again.

Just had my boiler replaced with a new combi condenser boiler. Joe came round and talked me through my options and followed up very quickly with a competitive quote. Installation was agreed within a week. Matthew removed the old boiler and fitted the new one, fitted new pipework to connect the waste pipe. The work was completed quickly and professionally. The area was left clean and Matthew explained the operation of the boiler and room thermostat and answered all my questions. Really pleased with the whole process from quote to completion. Would highly recommend!

A J Barnes plumbing is a very professional and reliable company. Arrived exactly on time and did the job in quick timing. Checked all my radiators for free allowing water to get into the radiators to make sure they all worked, checked my boiler for free whilst topping it up to the correct pressure and took away my old discarded items to the tip which saved me a job courtesy of the fine service that they provide. Would highly recommend this company for all plumbing needs for a great price and with an outstanding attitude towards the job.

What a team! These lads are amazing and I will be recommending them to others. I had been let down by two plumbers who didn’t seem to want to commit to the job and needed to find somebody quickly to tie in with building works. Joe came out the day after making contact and then came back with his team two days later. Their work-rate is very impressive and they clearly enjoy their work. They had to overcome a few problems along the way but this didn’t really slow them down or add to the cost. A highly professional job by really sound blokes for a fair price.

I have used A J Barnes for many jobs - e.g. several boiler replacements, services, installing bathrooms in various properties, installing new pipework in builds, gas landlord certificates, leaks in tenanted property, etc. He is always reliable, professional and thorough; and I would highly recommend him.

Second to none

★★★★★
5 5 1
I have used A.J.Barnes on several occasions for plumbing and heating installation and maintenance jobs and cannot recommend them highly enough. The company's response time, expecially to urgent requests, is second to none. The latest issue was a problem with my hot water boiler. Following my phone call, a technician called the next day at the promised time. The problem was quickly diagnosed and, sensibly, checked with the product supplier (Worcester) by telephone, who confirmed the diagnosis. The replacement part was ordered there and then by telephone and I was given a date two days ahead when the part would be delivered and installed. The part was installed at the time stipulated and the boiler returned to full functionality - hot water again! AJ Barnes' staff are polite, have a sense of humour and their workmanship has always been tidy with no fuss. I repeat, I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending this company for central heating and plumbing work.
