Alex and Jodie are both super efficient and make a great team, with excellent communication at all stages of my new boiler installation. Without Alex's excellent knowledge as both a gas engineer and electrician to resolve tricky technical issues, I have little doubt that my new upgraded system with weather compensation and hot water priority would not be working today. He has knowledge above and beyond most gas engineers, he works in a tidy orderly manner and has great attention to detail, will definitely be using him in the future. Thank you Alex and Jodie

The engineer arrived 45 mins late, with no notification or response to my text and no apology. I was charged for 1 hours labour (£102) for the boiler service (small service). (used to be £60 per hour) now charging VAT. The engineer broke a pin in the air valve of my pressurised cylinder when trying to change it, even though I told him to leave it as it was ok under pressure and not a problem during the past year. I was charge for the repair and time, this cost me another hours labour + VAT ( they wanted to charge me two hours for their mistake.) I complained to the company but they insisted it was leaking, not the case. On a previous service the boiler was working fine and then after a full clean wouldn't start up and a new thermostat was needed, I was charge nearly £300 for this, mostly labour. I won't be using this company again, very disappointed.

I highly recommend Blue Whale. They attended to my boiler issue with the precision of an elite military operation! Alex is so respectful and knowledgeable he helped me understand more about my boiler issue than before and to top it all reduced my bill considerably as he said “I am not going to charge you for pushing a button” I have definitely found my ‘forever’ plumbing and heating engineers!👍👊👌
