Latest Reviews and Feedback

Like so many other reviewers here, Geoff bailed us out in an emergency when we had a leak that could have become so much worse and done so much more damage. He arrived exactly when he said he would - to much relief - and persisted with fixing the pipe even though it was extremely difficult. A leaking pipe in the very corner of the loft, obscured by other pipes - an almost impossible place to get to. Yet Geoff patiently thought his way around the problem, and was unfailingly considerate in trying to cause as little damage to our home as possible when trying to access the pipe, and in making sure we had at least a supply of drinking water overnight when he couldn't fix the whole complicated problem in one day. I genuinely don't know where we would be now if we hadn't found this company! Wholeheartedly recommend - and, Geoff, I really am putting you on speed dial.

I have used Gibson Heating Services Ltd for over 20 years, and found them reliable, efficient and good priced. They think through the issue, and Geoff will always ensure you are not left in the lurch, and I thoroughly recommend him for major and small jobs.

I had need of a local plumber for some advice on a cold water tank replacement.

I contacted Mr Gibson yesterday. He visited me today to assess the situation. He made no charge for his call out and offered his advice. I was impressed with his manner and friendly business like approach.  Thank you Green Book.I shall certainly use him again.

Geoff and Phil went out of their way to work out what was wrong with my boiler.. As I had just moved into the house and was unfamiliar with the system, Geoff took the time to show me how it all works which was extremely helpful. The call out cost was very reasonable and I would have no hesitation in recommending this company. Such a relief to find such professional heating engineers!

JM 10 19

To our absolute horror my family came home to find half our kitchen ceiling on the floor following a leak from our hot water cylinder. An extremely stressful night and day followed making numerous calls and plenty of other plumbers were not prepared to come out to us to even provide a quote when we needed them urgently with water still leaking into our kitchen. Geoff could not have been more different, he was out to inspect the problem within a few hours of my call. We've used Gibson Heating in the past for a boiler service and been impressed. It's often hard to find many these days but in my opinion Geoff is a very honest, experienced and knowledgeable professional tradesman. He provided a fair and competitive quote for the work within an hour of his visit and due to our predicament offered to prioritise our urgent job and was able to drop onto us the next day. He said he'd be around at 8:30am the next day to start. It was such a relief. True to his word at 07:55 the very next day we had his colleague arrive with a new hot water cylinder on the door step and Geoff and his colleague were straight to work immediately at 08:15am. Our job was a particularly awkward one due to tight confined space to work but Geoff and his colleague worked hard all day even putting right some of the previous bodge job pipe work that the previous occupants had done. I found Geoff friendly and knowledgeable and willing to go that bit extra to make sure everything was done properly. I also liked the way he took the time to explain to me how things worked and gave some tips and advice. Invoice was as per his quote to us. No hesitation in recommending them to others and we will use again if we ever need a plumber.

Gibson Heating have been working on our boiler for 10 years or so after installing it. They are always reliable and come round as soon as possible and more importantly always fix the problem. Talking from experience of rogue traders these guys are as far from that as possible. Extremely good for people concerned about trusting companies. They are friendly and a pleasure to have in the house.

LO 10 19

I had an issue with my hot water and heating. Geoff got me to send him some photos so he could have a think before coming to see me. We text back and forth to ensure he had the right information and agree what could(n't ) be done. We agreed a price and did a good job. I now have hot water. My heating will need me to make a decision about. Geoff has given me information to enable me to make an informed decision with no pressure. He has been respectful, helpful and very professional in his dealing with me. Would happily recommend. His charge was very reasonable.

MM 08 19

Geoff changed a boiler at my property and the service was professional and all explained as it progressed. Always leaving the kitchen in a safe and clean condition on completion of work. Very impressed and I would recommend Gibson heating services to anybody. Bravo chaps!

AC 08 19

Geoff came to service our boiler and to fit a new radiator valve that was leaking. He knew what he was doing and was quick, efficient and very helpful. I strongly recommend him.

MB 07 19

Geoff Gibson and his team were fantastic in quickly attending an emergency plumbing situation when the pipe above our stopcock cracked and started to leak out water. Keiran was quick to come out and immediately identified what the issue was. This was not a straightforward job given the age of the plumbing and the corrosion that was evident in the stopcock, but Keiran persisted and after some hard work in hot weather his efforts resulted in resolving what had been a nightmare situation for only a few hours earlier. The work carried out was tidy and professional and Keiran was incredibly cheery and reassuring. I also felt that given the short notice they had been given they were extremely competitive in pricing the job. Gibson Heating Services are definitely worth a call and I will be adding them to my list of trusted professionals.

DS 07 19

Have used Gibson Heating a few times now and am thoroughly happy with their service and fair pricing. They're very responsive and happy to explain the problem and the solution. Nice to know that there are tradesmen out there who are not out to overcharge and fleece people! They now regularly service my boiler and have fixed a few issues for me, such as leaking radiator and leaking pipes. Trustworthy, good workmen who clearly know their stuff.

AL 06 19

Geoff serviced our boiler, a system only 3 years old, but one which he hadn't installed. He serviced the boiler, the hot water cylinder and the pressure expansion vessel. Geoff took the time to take me through what he was doing and gave us useful tips/recommendations and information to familiarise us with the system. A thoroughly nice chap, and we will be using Gibson H S again.

PR 04 19

Geoff is absolutely fantastic. He was on hand when we needed him most. We had issues with our central heating, he ensured he was here to help fix the issue the same day. A few weeks later, our cold water tank failed, Geoff was here within 30 minutes to stop what could have been far worse damage. Superb service and thoroughly recommend Geoff.

GW 03 19

Geoff Gibson originally installed our boiler and hot water tank several years ago and continues to service our heating system every year. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, and gets the work done efficiently. He completes all the necessary gas safety checks during his visits and offers useful advice on how to get the best out of the system. I can fully endorse the work of Gibson Heating Services.

JT 03 19

Gibson Heating Services are very reliable, helpful, efficient and professional. Geoff was originally recommended to us by a good friend in the trade. He came out to rescue us from a leaking shower pump, water everywhere and coming through the ceiling. He identified the cause and fully fixed the problem in 30 minutes. More recently Geoff came out to repair my boiler, restoring it to perfect working order and extending its life for another few years. He carried out all of the gas safety checks during his visit which reassured me that the boiler was safe. I can absolutely 100% recommend Geoff and Gibson Heating Services.

SC 03 19

I messaged Geoff via the 'Contact Business' button for a quote to service our heating. Within an hour or so he called back. Within 2 days Geoff had been around and serviced our heating. Geoff is a very nice man who is comfortable complimenting other workman's work - not many will. He is a very friendly guy who talks with you as a person, not just a job. He was quick and efficient. Let me know what he was doing and when. Very efficient and friendly. I will be re-using Geoff again and can comfortably recommend him. Thanks.

SN 02 19

Rapid assessment of our problem and sensible advice rescued us when outside temperatures were below zero. Repair carried out and central heating back to normal. Thank you.

RF 02 19

We used Gibson Heating Services Ltd on 04/02/19 as we were experiencing problems with our central heating. Having called them on Sunday morning an experienced heating engineers arrived to assess the problem we were having. He arrived within 15 minutes which was a relief as being without heating with snow still on the ground was not great. We arranged with the engineer that he would return to fix the heating at 8.30am the following day, which he did. Additionally he explained how to balance the heating. The price was very reasonable too. Top marks Gibson Heating Services, thank you.

RP 02 19

Plumbers who answer the phone and arrive when they say they will. Friendly, efficient, reliable guys who I would not hesitate to recommend. Will definitely be calling on Geoff & Phil again when required.

GB 02 19

We have used Geoff a number of times to both service and fix issues with our boiler and heating systems. Geoff is 100% reliable, always does a great job and responds quickly to call outs. Good value for money too. Highly recommended.

GM 01 19

I am very pleased with the service given to me by Geoff Gibson. I had no central heating working and my timer was also broken. All is now working perfectly. Geoff called promptly and arrived when he said and explained things that he did. Very happy with this company.

JJ 01 19

After calling numerous plumbers, Geoff was the only one to answer the phone. They came out the same day and resolved the problem quickly and efficiently. First class service thank you.

MF 01 19

Excellent service! Lovely professional reliable team! Will always be using them for any future plumbing needs and would highly recommend them 5*.

SG 01 19

Great service, professional, efficient, friendly and cheerful. Called out on a Sunday morning, day before New Years Eve. Fault identified quickly and replacement part fitted on the same day. I would be extremely happy to recommend Jeff and Phil to anyone needing a plumber.

JT 01 19

I cannot recommend Gibson Heating Services highly enough. A national gas service provider recently visited our property to give our boiler a service, told us that an extractor fan was sited too close to it, switched our gas supply off despite our protestations, and told us that their company would only come back to switch it back on only once we had removed the fan. We removed it within 2 hours, called the service provider back and asked them to switch our gas back on. They told us we would have to wait for a week or more without heating or hot water. At that point, we called Gibson Heating Services. Geoff himself came out within an hour, determined that the appliance was now safe, switched it back on and gave us expert advice. I was hugely impressed by Geoff's responsiveness, customer service and expertise and we will definitely be using Gibson Heating Services in the future. Thanks again Geoff!

DR 12 18

Geoff identified the problem with my leaking radiator, ordered a new valve and fitted the following day. Always very polite and professional service. I have used him on many occasions from installing a new boiler in my house to the odd new valve. Very happy with the service and the work and grateful for his promptness. No hesitation in recommending him.

SK 07 18

Geoff very kindly came out the same day of calling him and I was really grateful. Very considerate and respectful taking his shoes off. Sorted out the blocked pipe fitting a new one and made the time to service my boiler which was great. Very happy with the service and the work and so grateful he made the time to help me on a busy Monday.

JL 04 18

Friendly, professional team of two replaced my radiators. They worked efficiently and all work was done to a high standard. They respected the house and tidied up after themselves. Work was fairly priced and there were no hidden/additional charges. Would definitely recommend.

AL 04 18

Excellent service from this company, have used them for a few years now (actually found them from The Directory). Very reliable, friendly and efficient. Quick response time and try everything to help you if you are in a sticky situation. Recommend them to a 100%, will definitely stay with them.

KG 03 18

I would definitely recommend these guys. A great service, friendly, efficient and very helpful. Problem sorted straight away-thanks.

ST 03 18

We have LPG so it is harder to find someone to service the boiler. Phil came and did a fantastic job. He came when he said he would and he clearly knew exactly what he was doing as it turned out not to be a straightforward service. I would recommend the firm without hesitation.

DA 03 18

Excellent and efficient service from Geoff and Phil. They arrived when they said they would and completed a boiler installation. They’re complete professionals and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

GG 03 18

Emailed on Saturday morning and got a phone call straight away with a plumber at my door in less than an hour! Leak was fixed in a timely manner and advice given about other potential issues. I will definitely use this company again.

HR 01 18

I thoroughly recommend these guys. I had a problem with my heating and hot water barely getting lukewarm in early January. I called in the morning, and they came round to assess the problem by 12, then got someone in to replace the pump and it was all fixed in the same afternoon. This was despite them clearly being very busy. Polite, courteous and friendly at all times and a reasonable price. I will be using them again.

Eh 01 18

We needed a plumber in an emergency. Having rung a few numbers in your Little Green Book we found Geoff Gibson. Within 10 minutes his son, Phil, had arrived and did our repair. Great relief. Good job. And we will use the business again for servicing our boiler.

CM 10 17

Exceptional and professional service. No hot water and Phil was able to fix within the hour. I highly recommend Gibson Heating Services. 

HW 10 17

I called Jeff to discuss a problem that I have with a bath that I had installed a few years ago. The taps are in the centre and against the wall which means that the bath has to be removed to fit new taps (that have become damaged due to hard water). He gave me honest advice that he would not recommend this type of bath due to problems that can arise in the future. I greatly appreciated his time and honesty. He showed a genuine interest in helping me. 

AH 10 17

Geoff provided us with a boiler service. He turned up at the appointed time, provided the service efficiently and was extremely knowledgeable about his trade. Would certainly recommend and will be using again. 

MD 09 17

Awesome work! Saved me from serious damage, would definitely recommend and will certainly use again.

KM 09 17

Fantastic company. Efficient,friendly and tidy and punctual....all we need to have confidence in our tradesmen. Would recommend them to everyone.

LR 07 17

Extremely professional and efficient. Strongly recommended. Resolved problem within four minutes of arrival (airlock in system) which had been misdiagnosed by another emergency plumber despite working on system for four hours!!!! Phil from Gibson Heating has saved me from significant unnecessary expense had I proceeded down the route recommended by the plumber working for the insurance company emergency call out service.

DP 06 17

Geoff and Phil installed a new boiler, high pressure hot water system and shower room 12 years ago and have been returning to do the annually service, as well as other plumbing jobs, ever since. They are highly professional, courteous and tidy and really know their stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

DD 05 17

We have used Gibson Heating for 5 years. They first installed a totally new heating system and were able to provide a better design than other heating engineers. We have since used them for the annual heating service and other call outs - some urgent. Geoff always returns my calls, texts and arranges a visit at a suitable time. They are very friendly, reliable and honest and their work is to a high standard. They also clear up after themselves very well. I would highly recommend them.

FJ 05 17

Installed a negative head pump on our water system. Straightforward and efficiently handled. Resolved problems (due to previous installation) as they arose. Very friendly and polite. Would recommend.

CW 03 17

Geoff was absolutely brilliant. His dedication and workmanship was second to none. I would recommend him.

TM 02 17

Geoff rescued us when we had water coming through the downstairs ceiling. He came out very promptly and was able to find and fix the problem that morning. He was extremely pleasant and polite, taking the time to explain exactly what the problem was and what he was going to do. We are very satisfied with his work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

LR 02 17

Geoff is pleasant and helpful. He takes care of your home when working and is careful to clear up. He has twice fitted me in at short notice. He seems to know his stuff on heating systems and has been thorough in doing a boiler and water cylinder service. Very pleased with his help.

JP 01 17

A very quick response to my enquiry. Polite and efficient.Good information and a follow up phone call was much appreciated.Thanks!

DN 01 17

Gibson Heating Services have rescued us from a cold house in January and we are very grateful. Phil Armstrong has regularly serviced our boiler and helped us with other plumbing and heating issues for several years. On a cold Friday afternoon in January, our boiler decided that it had had enough and stopped working! Not a good situation. We rang Gibson Heating Services and Phil came over at the end of a long day to take a look and give us options. Despite bringing bad news (boiler needed replacing!), Phil and Geoff have very quickly been able to get and install a new boiler for us by Tuesday evening. We are so pleased to have a warm house again, but are also delighted with the professional and friendly service that Gibson Heating Services have continued to provide. We would highly recommend them. 

SS 01 17

We have used Geoff to service our heating and most recently to fix a problem with our hot water. We have found him very reliable, competent and fair. I would definitely recommend Geoff for any issues relating to heating and hot water systems. 

NM 01 17

My boiler packed up between Christmas and New Year. I phoned Gibson Heating and Geoff Gibson came out and diagnosed the problem as a faulty sensor. He ordered the part and arrived back with it the following day. Part duly fitted, boiler working, freezing house now warm again. Excellent and courteous service with years of experience. I would thoroughly recommend them.

JB 01 17

I would have no hesitation in recommending this company - we returned from a two week vacation to find that our central heating boiler had packed up and that we had a leak. We have, or I should say had a British Gas Home Care product so we contacted them and an engineer attended our apartment. For reasons I won't go into he wasn't able to make the necessary repair so we were left without heating for several days - out of frustration I decided to call Gibson Heating Services and what a difference in approach. Within 2 hours of contacting them Phil was in attendance and within an hour had fixed the problem! In future I will be using this company to look after our central heating system and our plumbing needs. A great service and nice people to boot! 

RH 12 16

Geoff and Phil just replaced our boiler, Very decent and friendly chaps! Both very experienced and gave us good advice on our system. Their work was efficient and thorough, only taking 2 days, and we're very pleased with the results. Geoff will service our boiler annually and come back if we have any issues. 

SG 11 16

First met Geoff and Phil in 2013 when they came to find a leak. This turned into a large messy job which involved digging up part of the cloakroom floor and replacing the boiler. They were extremely helpful advising me on the best way forward. Throughout they were professional, efficient, friendly and tidy. Geoff has returned to service the boiler for the past three years. He has been very patient as he has had to remove and replace the box around the pipes each time.

CW 10 16

Geoff and Phil have been helping us with our plumbing and heating for over eight years. They carry out an annual boiler service for us, have installed a new boiler and radiators, and they always respond very quickly to any problems and emergencies.

DL 10 16

Very knowledgeable and passionate about perfection. Took a little while to get the parts but it wasn't an emergency and when he did the job it was quick, tidy and so far perfect.! very good value for the time and work done.

RH 10 16

Mr Gibson arrived on time and did the job efficiently and tidy . He was friendly but professional and left the area clean and tidy. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

MS 09 16

Contacted Geoff on a Sunday because I had a leak. Firstly I was gobsmacked that he answered the phone. Secondly he came out that day, repaired the leak and gave me some great advice that I will definitely be taking him up on. Honest, trustworthy and reliable. I will be sure to recommend Gibson Heating Services to my friends and family and they will most definitely be my plumbers of choice in the future! 

GB 06 16

Geoff came out to fix an urgent leak and replace our central heating pump. He also gave us lots of really useful information on how to maintain our central heating for the future. We'd highly recommend him.

PI 01 16

Called the company to repair a central heating boiler. They quickly got it working and left everything clean and tidy. Would definitely use them again.

VF 01 16

Geoff was excellent. He came and assessed the job and arranged to fit a combimate that weekend. He was even happy to look at other leaks for free! Highly recommended.

DN 12 15

Geoff responded very promptly and gave us a friendly, efficient service. He was careful to point out what paperwork we should have and keep and gave us helpful tips. Thoroughly recommend him - competent and pleasant.
